We are a easygoing couple with seven years old children (they are twice) .
The children are used to travel and and independent.
A perfect holiday.
We actually stayed for two weeks and easily could have stayed another two months. That's how much we liked it.
Michele and his family are very welcoming and nice, the house is comfortable, clean and has everything you need.
Podere Le Splandole is a beautiful, quiet place where you immediatly start to relax.
Michele and his family are so welcoming, and have led a very interesting life. They are curious and very warm. The house itself is absolutely perfect. Great location, easy to get to and from, BEAUTIFUL, and had everything we needed for a perfect stay.
That was amazing week in Le Splandole Apartment and everything was beyond our expectations. We really enjoy time we spent in Crete Senesi (added to list of my very favorite places). Also need to say that surrounding scenery is very beautiful (even in January) and energize me every morning. Good thing that position of Le Splandole ideal for sightseeing by car (everything very close as it possible). That was truly joy rides and also eye-pleasing!
Apartment became almost our home and very glad that we stayed here. It have clever design, quiet and relaxing atmosphere. We had everything that we needed for stay here and even more.
Be sure that Michele is great host, kind and communicative person. Don't hesitate to ask him about region and local sights that you could or should visit.
Cant say enough about this experience. Michelle was a most gracious host (Christmas Eve and we got delayed (lost) on drive down from Florence) He talked us through directions and finally met us at the nearby Supermercato store to lead us to our destination. He had his family all ready to drive to Genoa to visit family for Christmas. He has our eternal gratitude for his patience. Accomodations, the best we experienced during two week plus stay in Italy. Location, superb, second floor unit two large bedrooms, full hall bathroom and 1/2 bathroom in master. Pleanty of storage in bathrooms for "stuff", large comfortable living room and two spacious sofas. Dining room and kitchen combo, pleanty of room and (utensils/cooking gear) as we prepared more than a few meals including Christmas dinner. One of the more pleasent times we had relaxing here in Asianoo. Would highly recommend this experience to anyone who wants to delve into the Tuscany countryside or nearby Sienna. Thank you, Michele
There is nothing about this apartment and hosts that we didn't love. The place is modern, comfortable, in the middle of striking Tuscan countryside but not far from shops...I could go on and on. We had our two children with us and we didn't lack anything. Michele was one of the most helpful hosts we've ever had. He went out of his way to give us detailed suggestions of places to visit and answered all our questions. I couldn't recommend this host and apartment enough. We hope to be back some time soon.
Abbiamo trascorso un soggiorno molto piacevole al Podere il Splandole. L'appartamento è molto confortevole ed elegante, molto bella vista nel coure di una delle regioni più belle d'Italia. Grazie a Michele per tutti i suoi consigli e i suoi indirizzi prima e durante il soggiorno.
What a wonderful stay!
Michele and family were very accommodating and welcoming. Had very wonderful conversations, and I'm sad we were only able to stay a couple nights..
They've done a wonderful job with the house as well. Very clean and well decorated.
I'm sure we'll find a way back to this place!
Perfetto! It was such a pleasure to stay at Michele's house, everything was amazing, house was really clean and Michele with his wife were really really friendly and helping sorting stuff out We hope to come back soon for more days.
For sure, we recommend this location to everyone!
We had a wonderful stay in Michele's apartment. The location is incredible - it is in the countryside, nice and quiet, with beautiful views across Tuscany, but it is also close enough to travel to lots of sites in the area, including Siena, Florence, Montalcino, etc. The apartment itself is a beautifully decorated, modern place with lots of space and a great kitchen to cook some Italian meals! Michele is a great host and I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again when we travel to Tuscany. It's a real gem!!!
We (two adults, two seniors) stayed in Michele's apartment for four days at the end of September and were more than satisfied. We highly recommend to anyone visiting the Tuscany region.
I wish my apartment was this nice! Beautifully renovated with great attention to detail, spacious and bright - we immediately felt at home here. One thing that stands out about Podere Le Splandole is the extremely high quality of everything in the apartment. The main bathroom is especially beautiful with the highest quality fixtures. The kitchen is very, very well equipped with everything you need to prepare a meal. The two bedrooms were cosy with plenty of storage space and the beds were comfortable. We really loved the apartment.
Perfect for exploring Tuscany and just a few minutes drive from Siena. The views from the house are absolutely stunning.
Michele really impressed us with his warm hospitality. He made sure we had absolutely everything we needed for a perfect stay at Podere Le Splandole. Michele is extremely knowledgable about the region and provided us with a wealth of information and tips about restaurants, local events and even the history of Siena and the surrounding area. We especially appreciated his food tips - whether is was a slice of pizza or a three-course meal, we were never disappointed! Michele is an excellent communicator and responded quickly to all our questions and requests - he really seemed to go out of his way to make sure we had a perfect stay.
Staying at Podere Le Splandole made our time in Tuscany all the more enjoyable. Thanks so much for everything, Michele!
I know Michele since 1996 in Belgium/Holland. I have been his guest several time at that time and I still remember his great hospitality and the amazing breakfast with Nutella.
Great happy funny family. Know them since 1999 in Bruxelles.
Their house in Tuscany is fantastic. We loved it.
