Wonderful base in Tuscany
We just returned from a week at this beautiful cottage. Luca was a wonderful and kind host, and the cottage had all of the amenities we were looking for plus it was quiet and secluded. The views were spectacular and our entire family (2 adults and a 4 year old) all enjoyed our stay. Our son loved running around the property and would have enjoyed the pool if the weather had cooperated (unfortunately we had a very cool week in May). We would highly recommend a stay at this lovely house!
wonderful property, very gentle owner, nice stay, but a few small improvements needed.
Comfortable beds and roomy showers and bathrooms, incredible views of the hilly countryside. We stayed with another couple (friends) in the 2 bedrooms 2 bath unit.
almost everything perfect. Here's what could (easily, I hope) make it 100% perfect :
1) full roll of toilet paper each bathroom (thank God we travel prepared)
2) soap for the dishwasher (doesn't cost much after all)
3) solve the acoustic problem: even a whisper in one bedroom can be heard in the other
4) it should be noted that the access dirt road is not suited to low clearing vehicles (we were OK, a Porsche probably would not), and help with luggage for older people would be mandatory (again, we were OK, but had to tell friends in their 70s not to go there because of that).
Aside from the above, an overall nice property. Stayed only two nights, 24 and 25 October, 2018
Heaven in Tuscany...
We were a party of 3, and all agreed that we would love to return to Podere il Giglio in the future if we are able. Luca is the perfect host, very welcoming--and his kind presence was much appreciated. The country house is comfortable, lovely, and very well designed. The surrounding countryside is breathtakingly beautiful. Radicondoli is a gem of a small Tuscan town, and the people we met there were friendly and kind.
Look no further, you will enjoy your stay here. My family loved every moment, and we count our time at Podere il Giglio as a highlight of our travels to Italy. Thank you again, Luca, for making our time in Tuscany so special.
Great property and view!
There is a reason that this property and Luca have only received 5 Star reviews. Luca was a gracious and helpful host and the property is wonderful. We had some car trouble and he tried to help us with dealing with the repair garage. The view and pool are amazing and we would definitely consider coming back to this property.
Lovely Accommodation In A Breathtaking Setting
My Wife and I enjoyed a wonderful week at Podere il Giglio.
The barn is set on a hillside overlooking a beautiful valley and the hills beyond. The setting is very peaceful, with an absence of any noise pollution just the occasional sounds of a working farm. The night sky is amazing, you can see the whole Milky Way.
Radicondoli is a beautiful small town, untouched by time and certainly all of the local people we encountered were helpful and friendly. Do try the Pergola restaurant, best pizza's ever!! and all the other town restaurants all good. The information centre in Radicondoli also very helpful, as is Luca, a really perfect host, who couldn't have been more helpful and friendly.
We will definitely return!!!

We LOVED staying at Luca's home, and could not have asked for a more beautiful and peaceful stay in a natural setting. The home was very comfortable and had everything we needed. We were even provided a few groceries for our first day- such a thoughtful touch!
Luca was available for anything we needed including suggestions of nearby towns to visit and restaurants to try. We enjoyed his rooster, chicken and little grey cat!
Mostly we enjoyed the tranquil setting of the rolling hills, olive trees and birds overhead. It truly was perfect for us and we would go back in a heartbeat! Thank you, Luca!
Farm 1km from the center of Radicondoli, medieval village overlooking woodland and unspoilt countryside, is a part of the world magically preserved rich in history and traditions.
Among Maremma and lands of Siena, the geographical position is strategic for those who want to know and master the history, art and culture of Tuscany, and for those who want to get lost in unknown nature trails.
