Set in the beautiful hills of Chianti, near Arezzo, Podere Asciana is
surrounded by vineyards and olive groves. It is an oasis of tranquillity, yet
close enough to major cities and small towns to be used as a base from which to
explore central Italy’s cultural treasures. We offer facilities for ping pong

hours away by car. In the Valdambra area immediately surrounding Podere Asciana

Wir haben uns dort sehr wohl gefühlt. Das Anwesen liegt sehr schön und sehr idyllisch, nicht direkt an der Straße...also sehr (website hidden) liegt zwischen Siena und Arezzo, so dass man von dort aus viele schöne Ausflüge (Siena, Arezzo, Florenz, Montericcioni etc,) unternehmen (website hidden)ßerdem liegt, nur eine halbe Stunde entfernt, eine große "Outletstadt",
Das ganze Anwesen ist sehr schön bepflanzt (Pinien, Zypressen, Oliven etc.). und wird von Alfiero und seiner Frau mit sehr viel Liebe gepflegt. Der Pool ist klasse. Einkaufsmöglichkeiten gibt es in akzeptabler Entfernung. Alfiero und seine Frau sind sehr nett und sehr charmante Gastgeber.
Kurz gesagt: Wir haben uns dort sehr wohl gefühlt und empfehlen die Unterkunft daher gerne weiter,
Fantastic villa to stay in. Alfiero and his family were perfect hosts, recommending local restaurants, best ways to get around Tuscany (& Rome) and always available for any little requests.
Beautiful surroundings, peaceful and a great swimming pool.
Thank you Alfiero!!
In august we stayed for 4 nights at the farmhouse of Alfiero. First we were planning to stay with 5, but 2 more friends decided a week before to meet with us too. It wasn't any problem for Alfiero. He organised the house perfect so we could stay all there, thanks again!
The swimmingpool is really a big plus! The view is also amazing, overlooking vineyards. It is really as beautiful as on the pictures (maybe even more beautiful!).
Alfiero is really friendly and helpful, he gave us a lot of tips for sightseeing and restaurants etc.
The location, close to smaill village Bucine is perfect when travelling by car. Florence and Sienna are both 1 hour away. Closeby there is a Val di Chiana, a beautiful old village on top of a hill. On the main square is a restaurant, overlooking the valley, really really amazing food and view and people there!
Would definitely recommend this farmhouse if you are looking for a relaxing place in Tuscany with family and friends.
Vi havde en fantastisk uge hos Alfiero og hans familie på deres skønne sted. En meget dejlig rummelig lejlighed med veludrustet køkken med alt udstyr til madlavning. godt køleskab og fryser. 2 store værelser med masser af god skabsplads og fantastisk udsigt udover værternes egne vinmark. Selv vinen var rigtig god !!!
Vi nød og tilbragte meget tid ved den dejlige pool som også lå med flot udsigt. Godt udgangspunkt for ture til nogle af de smukke gamle charmerende byer , f.eks Sienna 1/2 times kørsel derfra. Utrolig søde og hjælpsomme (website hidden) vil gerne tilbage til dette skønne sted. Hilsen Lisbeth og famile.
One of the amazing places that we ever been to!!!
Magical place, with wonderful view. We wish we
Could stay there all summer. If you want to taste
the real Toscana you must come to this place.
We know that we will come back to Alfiero's
If you want the perfect place to explore this part of Tuscany then this must surely be it! The hosts, the accommodation and the swimming pool - perfection. Look out for the wild boar with it's family grazing on the margin of the olive trees, the House Martins and Hoopers. Best pizza I've had in a long time, ask Alfiero for address. Definitely hope to return.
This was absolutely a little paradise. Alfiero and family were always helpful with directions when we got lost in the tuscan area, they recommended very good restaurants, and made a very delightful local wine. If you want a holiday away from the crowded turist areas this is the place to stay.
Alfiero and his family are the best people!! The place was beautiful, very clean, organized and cozy. A great place to enjoy your vacation, drink lots of wine and eat great food. They even make their own wine, and you have to try it!
We used the kitchen a couple of nights to make dinner ourselves and everything was perfect, nicely equipped and clean.
The location is great because you can drive to many beautful places such as Montalcino, Montepulciano, Siena, Firenze, San Gemignano, etc. I can't wait to back to Tuscany!
We stayed at Alfiero's in mid June for 3 nights and had a wonderful experience! He and his family were so warm and friendly. The apartment was amazing and view of his olive grove is spectacular. We sat outside in a private little garden in the evening and enjoyed a bottle of Alfiero's homemade wine. It's like visiting paradise. We would highly recommend this experience to all of our friends and family. They will be the first place we contact on our next trip to Italy!!
Had a wonderful time at Podere Asciana. Clean, well maintained, peaceful. I would be back in a heart beat and will certainly be recommending to friends in the USA and South Africa. Well located in the Tuscany area and a good train system nearby for side visits to Florence, Rome.
Thank you Alfiero, Ana Claudia and Annalisa for your hospitality.
