Fantastic Location.

  • 5 of 5

we have just come back from 10 nights at this wonderful place,located right in the heart of the chianti region just outside the village of San Casciano.

The cottages are great, nicely furnished with everything you need, a good outside space for eating or sitting in the sun and best of all a great pool.

The owner Elsabeth, is a fantastic host always on hand to give helpful tips on where to go, arranging visits to vineyards or even directions on where to park on visits to Florance.

The weather was unbelievably hot even the locals were complaining.

We will definitely return

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.

Beautiful setting with a small caveat

  • 4 of 5

We loved the property and the setting and Elisabeth could not have been a more welcoming host. Casa Podere and it's grounds are beautiful and the views of the surrounding countryside are everything we hoped Tuscany would be. We really liked San Casciano which is a short walk away and provided for most of our needs. We rented the apartment closest to the main house and it was well equipped for lazy days in the garden and eating in.

The only downside to our stay was that the other rental apartment in the annex was also occupied and the noise between the two became quite intrusive (+ we couldn't use the beautiful terrace!). I think we were unlucky in that the other guests seemed somewhat nocturnal (and noisy) but nonetheless it spoiled the feeling of being somewhere peaceful and relaxing. Coming from central London I didn't expect more noise at night in the Tuscan hills. A small blot on our stay but something of which to be aware.

Lovely place but no privacy...be careful

  • 2 of 5

We did not feel comfortable at this property due to the lack of privacy. The property is covered by lots of CCTV cameras and we always had the feeling we were being watched. It was not possible to relax even in the area by our part of the property.

Lovely swimming pool, quiet location, good facilities and clean accommodation.

Very very hot in the property and difficult to sleep at night

Owner's Response: Kind guests---I'm very surprised because during your staying you where our first guests that infringed with your behavviour the law of comonssense of privacy and sensibility for the respect for the other guests . The surveillance sistem (second the law, indicated with pubblic sign ) only for the common space has to garantee the security for our guests --- For the difficulty to sleep at night---it is true,this year is still a realy hot summer and since the last 30 years it never happened to have no rain for more than 3 months... We provide to install a new sistem fan , so for the next warm period our guests will be feel better--
