A Tuscan Idyll

5 of 5
We had a perfect 12 day stay at beautiful Podere Consalvo. The accommodation was comfortable and well equipped and the pool very welcome after a hot day sightseeing. Elisabeth is an excellent, warm and friendly host who provided us with a tasty breakfast on our first morning as well as home-produced, delicious honey, marmalade, olive oil as well as eggs from her chickens. She kindly advised us on free parking areas in Florence and places of interest in the area. I also enjoyed the art class with the highly skilled art tutor. We would have no hesitation recommending this farmhouse to others. A relaxing base from which to see all the beauty that Tuscany has to offer. Thank you Elisabeth for all your effort to make us welcome, we had a great time.

Outstanding hospitality

5 of 5
My wife and I took my parents on a trip to Tuscany and couldn't have asked for a better base for day trips and excursions. Il Torriano was perfectly situated for our flight into Pisa (1h30min) and our excursions to Florence, Siena, San Gimignano, and Cinque Terre. The house and grounds are a 10 minute walk to nearby Monte Firidolfi where there is a restaurant and a 5-10 minute drive to a couple of larger towns with supermarkets (not open on Sundays!) The grounds were perfectly maintained and the unit we stayed in was very comfortable and spacious for the self catering holiday we wanted. The pool is clean and excellent for relaxing after a long day of sightseeing and driving (remember to get a swimcap somewhere!). We used the barbecue facility 3/7 nights and the grounds keeper very kindly supplied us with offcuts from the vineyard. Patrizia was the best host I have come across for a while. She greeted us with a big smile and provided very interesting local insights into the bi-annual Palio, history of Il Torriano and introduced us to the very passionate winemaker at La Sala. The grapes growing on Il Torriano is of the best in the region and is used in the wine production at La Sala. Needless to say we bought loads of wine after the excellent wine tasting experience which was accompanied by local bread and extraordinary tasting olive oil (also produced by Patrizia's family). Our stay there was great value and we would definitely go back, especially after tasting Patrizia's homemade ice cream.
