Italian Paradise

  • 5 out of 5
Anne-Marie has lived in Italy for many years and will show you how to enjoy the country like a local. Be prepared to find the best bars, restaurants and even beauty parlours, all within a stone's throw.
However, the property is fabulous so you may not want to stray far.
Great pool, scenery to die for and houses that feel like your own. We have been back every year since we discovered Podere San Donato and made some wonderful international friends. That's because once people go, they book again and again, so be prepared for every visit to be reunion.
I would happily recommend this place but I really don't want to ruin my chances of getting a booking this year!

Podere San Donato is highly recommendable...

  • 5 out of 5
Podere San Donato is highly recommendable. Our family has spent many good holidays with Annemarie and every time we are equally positive about the atmosphere and the wonderful location. You can either choose to stay in a separate house or one of two apartments.

We have spent a summer in each accommodation and each unit has its own charm. They are tastefully decorated with a wonderful mix of ancient and modern Italian furniture and high standards in all the details. The pool is great and fun for both children and adults. We have often used the gas grill and prepared all the exquisite foods we have purchased locally.

The area around Podere San Donato is picturesque with many charming villages and it does not matter whether you choose to run a trip to Siena, Arrezo, Cortona or Florence, you will get there with in the hour. Annemarie is a charming and hospitable hostess.

To us Podere San Donato is the ultimate experience of Tuscany.

Great holiday destination

  • 5 out of 5
This summer we have enjoyed Annemarie's hospitality for a week. Beforehand, we had not realised that Annemarie is living here herself too and always at your disposal if you need any help. And always ready to keep you company for a glass of wine if you like. She will not bother you if you prefer not to have her around though! ;-)

Anyway, right from the arrival until our departure we had a brilliant time. We booked the Hay-barn and friends of ours, two other families stayed in the apartments.

The facilities are all very well equipped and nicely decorated. Things like the fridge and stove are all from top class brands and in excellent condition.

The rooms were all very clean and the beds just fine.

We enjoyed the awesome pool. It's sooo big and there are great beds to chill-out on.

Many nights we used Annemarie's great Weber bbq to cook us a beautiful Tuscany meal. There are two large picknick tables available outside, which we used to have dinner together.

The surroundings are beautiful. You can take a hike of about an hour to go up hill and oversee the valley. Although it's quite remote, in the little village nearby you can buy your food and there is a nice supermarket at 8km distance.
Day trips to Sienna and Arezzo are easy to do and the landscape nearby is beautiful.

We recommend Podere San Donato very much and will certainly come back!

Notes:
As Poderere San Donato was built in the 16th Century, Stone walls adorn many of the bedrooms and salons giving that wonderful feeling of living in a bygone age. Nevertheless, the accommodations all have modern appliances and the kitchens are modern, bright and airy; Wood burning stoves as well as central heating are available during the quieter winter months. There is also a deluxe Weber barbecue for guests to enjoy dining al fresco and they are encouraged to take their cocktails around the pool. The external night lighting will ensure many beautiful and peaceful evenings amid the olive groves. Welcome to Tuscany.
