Bardzo zachwycające miejsce! Jego urok przekroczył nasze oczekiwania. Wysoki standard, cisza i spokój. Właścicielka bardzo miła i uprzejma. Z przyjemnością polecam Podere Casanuova wszystkim, którzy chcą się podelektować Toskanią.
Local attractions Podere Casanuova to świetna baza wypadowa do najważniejszych atrakcji turystycznych Toskanii. Stosunkowo blisko stąd do Florencji oraz Sieny. Jeśli chodzi o San Gimignano, koniecznie trzeba spróbować lodów, które serwuje Gelateria Dondoli. Moim zdaniem najlepsze w całej Toskanii. Obowiązkowo również trzeba napić się miejscowego białego wina ze szczepu Vernaccia. Jedzenie wszędzie doskonałe, ale to "oczywista oczywistość". Osobiście mam słabość do wszelkiego rodzaju makaronów w sosie truflowym oraz jagnięciny w maśle szałwiowym.

Absolutely perfect! A truly Italian experience; welcoming, informal, relaxed.

Just arriving at the gates and meandering down the garden set the tone. The villa has stunning views across a valley of vineyards and countryside with the old town on the horizon. Podere Casanova was tranquil and the highlight for us was the large pool, perfect after a busy day exploring Toscana!

The room was compact as expected but extended out onto a cool private terrace of equal size where we dined, barbequed and relaxed in the shade. The grounds and pool were just what we hoped they would be; regularly well maintained with good quality outdoor furniture it had a wonderful atmosphere.

The accommodation was very clean and equipped with everything we needed. We opted to have a welcome hamper ready on our arrival which added to the rustic charm. Lucia and her husband Giampiero were perfect hosts that went above and beyond to make sure our stay was perfect.

Podere Casanova is about a mile down a narrow gravel access road over a few hills but the journey was still fun to make. If you’re planning to explore Tuscany by car we would recommend a more powerful vehicle as some country roads are very steep, winding and narrow; our entry level Fiat Panda hire car struggled carrying us and our luggage or shopping and had a low wheel base.

We’ve been back home for just over two weeks and we’re already discussing our next visit!
Local attractions As a destination San Gimignano was an amazing sight and enough to keep you occupied for a week. There are many great restaurants, our favourite recommended to us by Lucia was Ristorante La Mangatoia. We dined here twice during our stay, first for a quick bite, a small ‘primi’, which left us speechless and we decided to return for a proper evening meal later in the week when we had something to celebrate because we were so impressed. Be sure to try a glass of the famous white wine, Vernaccia di San Gimignano with the antipasti platter. We enjoyed exploring the walled medieval town at dawn and dusk more than during the heat of the day especially as the beautiful streets weren’t as crowded by day-trippers.
