The welcome and hospitality we received from Inge, Monica and Enrico was wonderful. Pomona is beautiful, a working vineyard and olive grove very close to the charming town of Castellina. The apartment, Limonaia, is rustic and very dark, very good for hot weather, but a little gloomy if the weather is bad, but it has an open fire which we enjoyed. We loved our time at Pomona and plan to return next year! Thank you. If there are any suggestions it would improve things if the kitchen equipment was more modern. If you are looking for a modern, up to date apartment this is not for you but if it is an authentic, welcoming, rustic and utterly real place to rest and get to know this beautiful area then this is it. The pool is lovely and the views around the farm are stunning and the sunsets spectacular. We will see you next year.

We loved our stay. The owners are very friendly. The house is old (about 300 years) but very nice if you like this style. We had everything we needed. The boys liked the garden to play and the swimmingpool very much (There is a gate to keep the kids in the garden and out of the pool). The surroundings are very nice.The owners live nextdoor, but there is all the privacy you need. The wine and olive oil are very good. There are a lot of small villages to visit nearby. And the big ones a little further. We will be sure to visit Pomona again!
