Nestled in the southern Tuscany countryside Podere Camera enjoys wonderful views of the rolling wheat covered fields of the surrounding hills. The owners of the villa work the land and produce local Tuscan delights including red wine.

Podere Camera's hillside position allows open views of the valley below. Down a short path from the villa there is a large pool surrounded by trees and furnished with sun beds and umbrellas. Through the trees and beyond is a breathtaking view of the rolling Tuscan hills. On the land there is also a small lake for fishing, bring your own rods.

This comfortable villa is half of a large renovated Tuscan farmhouse. Entrance is gained through a gravel yard surrounded by potted flowers where there is a table and chairs for alfresco dining.

On the first floor there are another 3 bedrooms. The largest is a triple room that has a large en-suite bathroom with shower. From the window there are wonderful views over the hills towards Montalcino. From the small landing at the top of the stairs there is a door leading to a corridor at the end of which there is a bathroom with shower. Off this corridor there are another 2 spacious bedrooms, both with great views of the countryside.

Pros der schöne Blick in die Landschaft, der Pool, die verschiedenen Möglichkeiten, sich zusammenzusetzen oder zurückzuziehen, mehrere praktische Ein- und Ausgänge = kurze Wege im Haus, die große Anzahl der Bäder
Cons Achtung: Wer die wunderschönen lauen toskanischen Sommerabende draußen in gemütlichem Kreis wirklich genießen möchte, braucht vorher eine Ganzkörperbehandlung mit Mückenschutz oder muss sich winterlich kleiden ;-) der Angelsee entsprach nicht ganz unseren Erwartungen, da der Uferbereich bis auf zwei kleine Stellen komplett zugewachsen war.

Pros Wir haben dieses Haus wegen den ausreichend Schlaf
Und Badezimmern gebucht.
Das Haus ist zweckmäßig ausgestattet. Reparatur der Spülmschine wurde sofort vorgenommen.
Die Freindlichkeit der Vermieter. Das Grundstück.
Cons Geschirr und Besteck ist leider etwas wenig. Es war sehr improvisiert. In den Bädern sollte unbedingt Ablagen angebracht werden. Es gibt teilweise keinerlei Abstellmöglichkeit. Es wäre schön wenn sich verschiedene Eigentümer zusammenschließen und den unbefestigten Zufahrtsweg ausbessern würden.
Local attractions Montalcino, Montepulcano, Siena, Kloster Oliveto Wir waren in keinem Lokal zum Essen. Außer in Buenconvento zu einer Art Besenwirtschaft. Dies hat uns sehr gefallen.

What were the highlights of your holiday? The highlights were mornings on the verandas and patios and getting together at the end of the day over a glass of great Italian wine to eat dinner and talk about where we had visited that day. The local towns were great and visiting restaurants and wineries near Montalcino,Pienza and Montepulciano were the most fun.
what was your overall impression of the accommodation?    Excellent overall impression. Everyone enjoyed the villa. The kitchen was more than satisfactory. Everything was very clean and did not look overused or worn out. The pool was very clean. Everything worked well.
Did you have any unpleasant surprises? No, absolutley not. The owners were very freindly and helpful with any questions we had.
Do you have any other comments?

Was waren die Highlights Ihres Urlaubs? Immer wieder nette Unterhaltungen mit Leuten vor Ort, insbesondere Einheimische in einem kleinen Cafe ganz in der Nähe (Torreneri) und das direkt in der Nähe gelegene Montalcino.
Besonders erwähnenswert auch die Nähe zu Siena und dort ein paar kleine Spezialtiätenläden zu besuchen und den Tag zu genießen.
Wie war Ihr Gesamteindruck von der Unterbringung? Sehr angenehm, freundlich gestaltet, sehr sauber, jegliche Informationen vorhanden.
Gab es unangenehme Überraschungen? JA- die Zeit verging zu schnell, das nächste mal sicherlich 2 Wochen Urlaub.
Haben Sie andere Anmerkungen? Vielen Dank für alles, wir werden beim nächsten Urlaub sicherlich wieder auf sie zurückkommen als Reiseanbieter.
