Lisa's place was a great blend of a peaceful location but near enough to the town of Siena. The apartment was well equipped and all the staff were very friendly. Pool was great, as were the dogs and the Chianti !
We didn't have a car but the local buses and taxis and trains work well for us. There is also a supermarket within 10 minutes walk . I would recomend Poderaccio for a Tuscan holiday.
