Charming atmosphere, beamed ceilings, terracotta floors, interiors decorated in soothing colors. No A/c but ceiling fan in living room. No TV.
No indoor smoking. No pets allowed as our lovely Weimaramer is on the premises most of the time.
Diana’s and Tito’s property in the middle of Tuscany is really lovely and offers everything you need.
The pool is marvellous, and there are plenty of options to sit outside for having breakfast, or just enjoying the day... The room itself is also quite spacey and the own small kitchen offers the possibility to choose whether to eat out or to cook “at home”. The village itself is can be reached within just 5 Min. walking distance and offers apart from restaurants also grocery and wine stores.
But also within the facility you have the option to enjoy breakfast, or buy local treasures ^^
We had a great time there and can only recommend this Tuscan paradise (hint: look out for hammocks ;)

About the Host, Diana
Sono nata a Varese e dopo il Liceo Classico ho vissuto per alcuni anni a Londra, dove mi sono specializzata in Fotografia Fine Art. Al mio rientro in Toscana ho acquistato e ristrutturato Villa Podernovo appena fuori Siena dove, con mio fratello Tito, offriamo soggiorni indipendenti e anche in B&B. Villa Podernovo è anche il luogo ideale per celebrare il vostro romantico matrimonio in Toscana! I nostri matrimoni, sia religiosi che civili, sono molto apprezzati per la loro raffinata e semplice eleganza. Come fotografa, collaboro con National Geografic per l' organizzazione di workshop internazionali di fotografia e scrivo per la rivista Zoom.
