The villa is beautifully presented, Podere Ampella is in a lovely location with plenty of nearby attractions. The kitchen was well equipped and the beds were comfortable. Paola was very friendly, helpful and accommodating during our stay. Overall the accommodation was very comfortable and to a high standard.
Personally I was disappointed with the view from the villa itself, I had been looking forward to views of the Val d'Orcia from our villa while sitting outside in the evening but in fact this was not possible unless we moved away from the villa, to the pool or we moved our chairs to the side of the whole property. Some villas have better views than others so if this is important to you establish what view you will have first.
Local attractions There are plenty of beautiful places to visit nearby and the Val D'Orcia is breathtaking. The best walks are a little further south. As a vegetarian I found eating out quite difficult in the vicinity unless you want to eat pizza/pasta. We mostly ate in the villa using the provided barbecue. But if you are a meat eater you will be happy in the local restaurants.
