If you are looking for a beautiful and relaxing retreat in the middle of the heart of Tuscany, Podere Palazzo is the place to stay. While we weren't familiar with D'orcia prior to our trip, it is an ideal location as it's a short drive from everything Tuscany has to offer (including Montalcino, Montepulciano, and Pienza). Definitely try D'orcia wine as well, it's up there with the better known wines of the area - but is a hidden gem. We loved it!
We were traveling as two couples, each with a child under the age of 2 and the property was exactly what we were hoping for. It is perched on top of a hill with sweeping views of typical Tuscan rolling hills (every room in the house has an amazing view). The property is surrounded by some large trees which helps keep the property cool in the heat of the day, and the pool was an absolute treat after a day of wine tasting. The house is a converted old farm house, and both the interior and exterior have been refinished to a high standard. It perfectly blends rustic charm with modern luxury. I really don't know how our trip could have been any more relaxing (even considering we had a 3 month old with us)
We highly recommend hiring a local chef (you can ask the owner for details). We hired a chef to cook for us 3 nights during our stay, and it was truly a blessing. Not having to worry about a meal on the day we arrived worked out perfectly, as we arrived on a Sunday and most of the local super markets were closed.. Going out for dinner is nearly impossible with young children, so having the chef come to us after the kids were asleep was one of the highlights of the trip. The food was amazing as well.

Wir verbrachten eine wunderbare Woche mit 3 Generationen in der Toskana. Das Haus ist modern, mit viel Geschmack und Umsicht renoviert, so dass der ursprüngliche Stil des toskanischen Bauernhauses erhalten blieb. Es steht inmitten der Bilderbuchlandschaft der Toskana und ist gut gelegen für viele interessante Ausflüge.
Luc und Jacqueline sind sehr nett, unterstützen mit Tipps und setzen alles daran, dass sich die Gäste in ihrem Haus wohl fühlen. Einziger Wehrmutstropfen für unsere Kinder war, dass der wunderschöne Pool im Oktober bereits geschlossen war, was uns jedoch im Voraus bereits bekannt war. Deshalb werden wir wohl nochmals im Sommer kommen müssen ...
[English translation courtesy of Easy Reserve] We spent a wonderful week with 3 generations in Tuscany. The house is modern, renovated with much taste and prudence, so that the original style of the Tuscan farmhouse has been preserved. It stands in the midst of the picture-book landscape of Tuscany and is well located for many interesting excursions.
Luc and Jacqueline are very nice, support with tips and do everything to make the guests feel comfortable in their house. The only drawback for our kids was that the beautiful pool was already closed in October, which we already knew in advance. Therefore, we will probably have to come again in the summer ...

La situation exacte de la propriété devra être précisée pour éviter des difficultés lors de l'arrivée et aussi qu'il s'agit d'un chemin et non d'une route ( voiture basse)

We had a wonderful time at Podere Palazzo. There were four of us, three travelling from NZ and myself from Dublin. The accommodation is first class. It has just been very tastefully renovated keeping the character from the past yet introducing modern design. The hosts were amazing, alway prepared to go the extra distance to make sure our holiday was special. We will definitely return and would highly recommended this property
