“Love, Love, Love! Didn't want to leave!”

Reviewed 11 Jul 2013

My family and I travel quite frequently. For this trip, I wanted to enjoy my surroundings and family. So, we found this villa. With its spacious rooms, rolling hills and large pool we were in heaven. Also, this is really a working farm, so my youngest could enjoy playing with the sheep and other animals (Ulrike supervised). We took the night hike to dinner with Ulrike and the others and it was so much fun. She also kept us supplied with wine every evening! This villa is an easy hike to the center of the closest town but I would recommend a car for your stay. We took day trips to Siena, Florence, local wineries and other local towns. What I liked best: Ah, the air & scenery & wine! Least: I wish I had read through all of Ulrike's tips in the red folder. She has a lot of suggestions that I read about too late in our trip.

“What a great time!!”

Reviewed 16 Aug 2012

Poderi Val Verde was the perfect place to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary. There was 3 couples sharing the Casa Pineta Villa which provided us with plenty of space. The villa was well equipped, very clean - we were pleasantly surprised that it did not have a musty smell being such an old villa and the property was beautiful. Poderi Val Verde is located central to most attractions -Florence, Sienna, Cortona - (1.5 hours travel time)- we would leave in the morning for a day trip and then returned to the villa to enjoy the well kept property - the pool was the perfect spot for gathering to chat about our adventures and enjoy a refreshing swim before dinner. Casa Pineta allows for entertaining both inside and outside the villa. The kitchen had all the essentails for us to prepare our meals that we enjoyed overlooking the grounds and the beautiful view of the mountains. From the villa, you can also hike into the village of Castellina. Castellina has shopping, grocery stores and great gelato. Ulrike offers a welcome dinner which was delicous. She prepares a homemade feast of Italian cuisine including appetizers, pasta, wild bore,dessert and her own wine. It was the perfect way to unwind after a long day of travel. Thank you for such a wonderful time and we hope to visit again!!!

“Authentic Tuscanny Vacation”

Reviewed 7 Aug 2012

My family of 11 stayed at Casa Pineta for 1 week this July. It was truly a wonderful experience. The villa was very roomy, clean and an authentic Tuscan Home. The grounds are beautiful with blooming flowers and breathtaking views. The pool was spotless and we usually had it to ourselves. We used this as our home base and drove to nearby towns very easily. The location is perfect, being about 30 minutes away from several great towns that we visited. Castellina, the town the villa is in, is very quaint & beautiful also. I would definately recommend this to friends & I hope to return one day. The owner Ulrike is very friendly & helpful. When our rented car broke down on our way to the villa the first day, Ulrike came & got us & brought us & our luggage back to the house. She is also a great cook. We had the welcome dinner the first night. It was absolutely delicious and varied for all tastes.

“Great Chianti getaway”

Reviewed 24 Jul 2012

Poderi Val Verde is a well-managed vacation rental 5 minutes drive from Castellina in Chianti. The location is good, giving access to Chianti area, San Gimignano, Florence and Siena (and the rest of Tuscany). Poderi Val Verde has several houses in a peaceful valley up on the hills. Our choice was Casa Pineta with 4 bedrooms (2750€/week), comfortably large enough for 4 adults and 5 kids. During our stay, from the very beginning we felt welcome. The first evening we gathered together with the residents of all houses to a truly memorable welcome dinner hosted by Ulrike, our landlady. She introduced us to Tuscan cooking and during our stay helped us by giving recommendations about which places to visit, where to go shopping, what to do in Siena etc. Casa Pineta is beautifully decorated, all bedrooms have ensuite bathrooms, and the kitchen is really well equipped. Wifi connection is available which is useful as the valley has no mobile phone service. The lack of air-conditioning could be a minus for travelers not accustomed to a bit higher night temperatures. Outside, nights were below 20 C, but inside well above it. We were provided with fans that made this easier for us. Kids loved the place, particularly the pool! Pool area was nice and clean, water refreshing after daily excursions. There were also other possibilities for outdoor activities. On the grounds, children made friends with Ulrikes cats, dogs and goats, and from a distance we saw deer in their natural environment! Occassionally, the dogs barking or sound of the rooster disturbed us in the night. All-in-all we had a memorable holiday. Beyond Castellina there are many places to explore, beautiful landscapes to see and the road network is in good condition. The check-out time is 9 am, check-in 4 pm, a schedule we considered as a small minus. Still, you can always go an ask Ulrike if something is troubling you. She keeps Poderi Val Verde is well organized (she's German...) but still authentically Italian!

“Heaven in Chianti”

Reviewed 17 Mar 2011

Poderi Val Verde was the setting for a fabulous vaction with extended family (12), including teenagers. The location was great as we could take a number of day trips to explore Tuscany, from Florence to Siena and small, quaint town throughout the Chianti area. At the end of our long days, we returned to share our stories and much laughter with Ulrike and Fabian, her son. As the weather was unusually hot, it was wonderful to jump in the pool to cool off and relax. The grounds of Poderi Val Verde were terrific. We hiked on the trails, fed the goats, played ping pong, wandered through fragrant gardens and many hours on the patios, playing cards and making great memories. Each morning Ulrike had a terrific breakfast lined up for us. Fresh eggs from her chickens, homemade jams, a variety of cheeses, yogurts and other goodies. The dinners Ulrike prepared were out of this world-- wild boar, venison, pastas and one night an amazing variety of cheeses. Ulrike and Fabian were terrific hosts, helping us learn about the culture and the region. Ulrike's expertise was instrumental in guiding us so well with our planning. Our teenagers and young adults were never bored and so enjoyed the company of Fabian and Ulrike. Of course, nearby Castellina in Chianti with amazing gelato was the hit on most nights! We had so much to do and a week wasn't enough to take it all in. We dream of returning in future years. If you go, and you really should, stay two weeks and have the time of your life!

“Home away from Home”

Reviewed 14 Mar 2011

We thoroughly enjoyed our time with friends staying here while in Tuscany (20 of us in total--but 8 of us stayed in Casa Pineta--we took over the whole property). It felt like home. It felt like our Nonna's home. We wanted a true Italian experience and you couldn't find it better anywhere than here. The extraordinary views, the living space, the look and feel of a authenic farmhouse...in a word, spectacular!
