Great place and Silvia is very accommodating! Didn't have the courage to try the pool so early in April but the wood fireplace is great if you are interested in enjoying a bit of nature.
we had a very pleasant time at Silvia's place! The house is quite near the Firenze-Sienna highway, which can be quite convenient if you hang around in the region.
Silvia is so kind and the area is amazing!
Great place , beautiful scenery and lovely place. I had a great time . Very clean and the fire place was real nice touch.
A very nice place to stay, simple, clean and comfortable. Good heating in December. Silvia is a great hostess. She showed us the cats, the hens and rabbits, our children were delighted. We also recommend to buy the olive oil, made from their trees close buy. Location of house is very good, to travel around Toscana: Sienna, San Gimignano, Florence, all in about 25 - 30 min distance.

Very nice place to be in the Toscane countryside between Firenze and Sienna. The scenery is beautiful, and a car is absolutely necessary. Sylvia is adorable and very helpful and reactive. during the summer it must be lovely to enjoy the swimming pool and barbecue (we stayed there during fall) in a quiet and authentic place...
Wondeful ! Silvia is fantastic person, very easygoing and welcoming. The place is just outstanding, on-must if you want to experience real Toscanan village. Beautiful house, nicely decorated, private pool, stunning view - nothing more to ask for. We had some difficulties finding a place, but Silvia came with her husband to guide us - so I guess there is no problem reaching the place even without a car, since she is so helpful she would probably pick you up :) Me and my friends totally recommend this place, we will definately come back there once we are back in Toscana
Excellent location to tour all of Tuscany. The old stone farmhouse is charming and typical of those you see in pictures of Tuscany. View is spectacular as the vineyard is perched on top of a hill. The fully equipped kitchen with fireplace is cosy with all the comforts of home. Bedroom is large with a window opening to the view of the valley. Apt is equipped with washing machine.
Your hostess Sylvia, is very warm and helpful, I highly recommend Podere di Gallo and I will return in the near future.
We didn't find the house number on our papers and we didn't trusted driving further on the dirt road so Sylvia needed to jump in her car and come and find us! No worries she did and we were immediately dipped in an Italian course. 2 weeks with Sylvia and at least Tania would have been able to speak Italian too. Sylvia was the perfect host and the property is well taken care off. The house itself is a bit small but of course you don't go to such a lovely place to spend much time inside.
The apartment was nicely located in the Tuscan hillside with very scenic views. It was just how I pictured Tuscany to be like. This location is perfect as a base for daily trips to i.e. San Gimignano, Siena or even Lucca and Pisa.
The only drawback of this rather remote location is that you definitely need to have a car in order to get there and be mobile. But I guess you should have a car anyway if you want to explore the region.
The apartment itself was rather small but cozy. It has a nice double bed in one room and a comfortable sleeping couch in a separate room. The kitchen is fully equipped so you can have some nice home made dishes as well. There is even a barbeque at the terrace with wood being provided at the back of the house.
The other thing we really enjoyed was the nice pool that we only had to share with the other apartment upstairs. It was just perfect to take a swim after a long day of strolling around the many beautiful cities in the region.
Silvia was very friendly and accommodating.
Long story short: I would highly recommend this apartment. We thoroughly enjoyed our time there!
Great location, great apartment and wonderful host. We hardly recommend this place. It is tiny but with all you need to enjoy wonderful Toscania. Thank you Silvia!
