Our 4 day stay with Lisa was absolutely AMAZING. We could not have asked for a better experience. Relaxing, gorgeous view and setting on idealic farm, with incredible pool. Terrific location for scenic drives into wine country. Lisa was very informative, supportive and welcoming. We can not wait to return some day soon. The apartment was perfect size with wonderful views of the Tuscany hillsides from our deck/patio. We thank Lisa so much for this wonderful experience.
We had a fantastic stay and highly recommend this wonderful property to anybody... Great location to Senia and the Chianti Drive -hwy 222.... With the most beautiful Tuscan view over the valleys to wake up to... We loved it. Not to mention the wonderful organic wine and olive oil Lisa produces on the property!!!
This place is absolutely wonderful! The property is perfect for anyone looking for some quiet seclusion and an authentic Tuscan experience. The property is set amongst vineyards and olive groves with fantastic views of the rolling hills of Toscana. A magnificent restored 14th century property only 4km from amazing Siena, it has a magnificent pool, friendly animals and all the inclusions you could possibly want.
Lisa is a fantastic host and looked after our every need. The region is incredible, make sure you travel 17km up the road to visit Castelina and Radda, villages with exquisite charm and fewer crowds than most.
We thoroughly enjoyed our time at Ponderosa and only wish we had stayed longer. Thoroughly recommend this place and all it offers, can't wait to go back.

We stayed here 4 nights and it was fantastic! We didn't have a car but Lisa was very helpful with directing us. When we arrived we just got a cab to the apartment (10 euros) from the station in Siena but after that we got the bus into Siena to do day trips. The bus is just a 15min walk and Lisa showed us where the stop was and next to it is a supermarket, bakery and a couple other shops which was handy. The apartment itself is great the gardens, pool and views are amazing. We great and relaxing time here and it's definitely doable without a car
Our 5 days stay at Lisa’s farm was the highlight of our trip. The views from our patio was wonderful. The place is relaxing, the pool big and clean. A lot of life all around, with all the animals.
We slept very well, having the apartment on the first floor, and the room a bit in the basement, it was cool in the night. The kitchen is well furnished, we had no trouble preparing our simple meals. There is no living room, but we had the smallest room of the lot. We did not care at all. There are Bigger apartments on the property.
The location is great, around 15 mins from downtown Siena. Greve in Chianti and San Gimignano are less than an hour.
There is a supermarket a few minutes by car, once you know how to get to it. The place is viewable from (website hidden) map / satellite. Once you locate the villa, getting the right directions is easy.
Overall, a great stay. We would not hesitate to come back. If you want to relax on the property or use it as a base to visit the region, you cannot go wrong at Lisa’s agriturismo.
O apto é muito limpo, equipado e confortável. A localização é ótima já que fica há apenas 3 km de Siena e com uma bela vista para o Vale do Chianti. Uma ótima base para passeios pela região. Os cachorros são ótimos, muito simpáticos. Uma pena que os pastos próximos da casa estejam com muito acúmulo de matéria orgânica, resultando em muitas moscas, o que não chegou a nos incomodar, mas, que podem ser um problema no verão.
Very nice quiet 2 room apt. views from property are spectacular. LIsa is very nice and helpful (gave restaurant recos) although she wasn't there much after she checked us in. wireless worked most of the time and only outside. would love to go back in summer and be able to enjoy the beautiful property!
We had an incredible stay for the week. The farm is beautiful and relaxing and the vegetable garden is perfect when making dinner! As animal lovers, we had a great time with the pets and animals on the farm. A quick walk to get some supplies and an easy trip into Siena on the bus. We would happily come back to relax by the pool, drink the great wine and play with the pets!
We had a lovely stay in picture perfect surroundings. Great facilities (swimmingpool, garden, petanque and ping pong) 15 min walk (or short drive) to nearby shopping (BIG supermarket, baker, pharmacy etc.)
A great base for exploring what Tuscany is All about. They have their own wine and oliveoil production which tastes great! We were worried about The appartment didn't have aircondition. But it was cool at night even though it was 35 degrees celsius during the day. This place is absolutely recomendable, and Lisa is very nice and were always helpful during or stay!
I, we stayed 5 nights at Lisa's place. My girlfriend joined me after one day en togehter we had a wonderful time. The agri is not so far from the center but a car is very convenient. We enjoyed our terrace with a wonderful view. Lisa is ok, very helpful and nice. There are shops in the neigbourhood. So when you want to visit Siena, Lisa's agri is the best place to be.
