We chose Francesco & Enzo's place after reading all the wonderful reviews.
We weren't disappointed!
It was very easy to find the place using the Waze GPS app. The location was superb and the views are absolutely wonderful, the kind of place that makes you want to buy their place and live there, Just to enjoy the peace, grow grapes, make wine, cheese and lots of babies... :)
The water pressure is very very high, very clean room, descent wi-fi, comfy bed. It was really great all in all. Don't count on any english speaking television shows and the TV is small. But... This is no place to sit and watch TV.
They have a few Dogs there, really friendly and cute.
Its a great place to stay if your'e planning on making it a base for daily trips to surrounding cities and villages.
Do yourself a favour and avoid the highways, enjoy the great tuscan roads.
Thank you Francesco and Enzo!!
We had a great vacation in the plantation. You will that it is now in good memories of my sons and me.
We will never forget! Francesco and Enzo, Eitosu, Asia, Dunk, Athena, Orukore.,and Lovely farm.
Thank you Francesco and Enzo!! We had such a splendid time at your lovely abode. The farmhouse is so peaceful and we had such a fun time getting to know you. The homemade wine was spectacular, the views were breath taking, and your kindness will never be forgotten.
Lovely farm is really a great farm, we really enjoy our stay in Francesco's apartment!! And their dogs are incredible friendly and welcoming!! The apartment is very clean just like the pictures!! if you want to enjoy the county life in Tuscany, this is the best choice!!
Our stay at Azienda Papera was wonderful - the landscape and house were just as beautiful as in the photographs and the description was spot-on. Francesco and Enzo were very helpful during our stay and we bought some wine from their vineyard which was lovely. We didn't have a car but found it easy enough to bus/walk to Florence/Mercatale/San Casciano - the bus stop is only 5-10 minutes walk away and buses were regular. It's cool in November but we had some lovely sunshine!
We absolutely loved our stay here - the location is beautiful and the farm, and in particular the swimming pool area is beautiful. It is about a 15 minute walk to the local town - with a supermarket and a couple small bars. We didn't have a car and found it fine - though if I had been there longer than a few days we would have wanted one. We used the bus at the end of the road to travel to Florence and back - and also to go to the larger town nearby San Casciano. We had an amazing time and I have been telling all of our friends about it - I want to go back soon!
Everything about Francesco and Enzo's place was perfect! The apartment is exactly as described and his property is absolutely amazing. Besides his vineyard, and olive trees he has fruit trees, and walnut trees around the yard.
If you're into the country, wine and food this is the place to go! In the surrounding areas we found castles for wine tours, unbelievable food, and plenty of scenery. We also got some of his homemade wine which was delicious. Pondera Papera has been the highlight of our trip and I can't imagine a better place.
