An ideal place for a relaxing holiday, taking long walks in the woods or visiting the most beautiful and striking sites of Tuscany.

Beautiful Farmhouse. Wonderful Hosts
We can not say enough about our fantastic stay. We loved our cooking class with Grazia! Definitely a highlight. The villa is in a perfect central location for exploring all of Tuscany. We loved traveling to other villages for wine tasting and dining.
The beds are comfy and we had enough space for all 4 of us. It's definitely rustic, but that is part of the charm. The kitchen is very well equipped, but other than the cooking class we hardly used it because it is so fun to try lots of the restaurants in the region.
Wish we could have stayed longer than 4 nights.
Miss it there already! Can't wait to come back!
thank you for your beatiful review about your stay here at our property. We are glad you enjoyed and appreciated the villa and our lifestyle, as you know, we work every day to improve and increase the quality of our hospitality and your experience during the stay. Thank you for choosing us and hope to hug you all soon back!! Best from us both, Grazia and Oscar.
Very rustic, cute home near wonderful wineries and Tuscan towns!
We very much enjoyed our stay and our hosts, Grazia and Oscar, were so very welcoming and kind! The home is quaint and brings gorgeous views of Tuscany countryside. We highly recommend the cooking class as well. What a unique, warm and pleasant stay in Italy!
The Quintessential Tuscan Villa
This villa was everything we hoped for and more. First off, Grazia and Oscar are some of the most lovely people you could ever want to meet. From the moment we arrived, their hospitality was above and beyond what we expected. They take great pride in this home and their attention to detail is impeccable. We chose to have Grazia cater an evening dinner for us, and were blown away. Not only did she prepare the most amazing tasting dinner, and paired it with an amazing wine, but she set the ambiance for the place with candles, flowers, and multiple appetizers set perfectly on the farmhouse table. It was an evening we will never forget. The villa is located in an area that made it easy to do day-trips to nearby hilltop towns, vineyards, Florence, Sienna, and restaurants. This charming Tuscan villa and our hosts exceeded all our expectations. And a little bit of our hearts will always remain in Sinalunga. Thank you Grazia and Oscar.
A stop on your journey through the Tuscan Valley that you will never forget!
Grazia & Oscar are the owners and hosts of this property Podere Pievina, an old Italian farmouse from many generations of their family. They have restored the home with authentic styles and materials that give you the feel you have gone back in time...but with all of today's amenities. Grazia can either be the Bed & Breakfast host you would sit down and talk about your lives with, or they can disappear without trace from the property...your choice. They live just down the road and can be available for ANY request at a moments notice if needed.
The farmhouse is situated on 7 acres of beautiful rustic landscape with an organic garden, olive trees and a beautiful white dressage horse named Spin. The professional chef's kitchen is at you disposal, BUT if you request Grazia (a professional chef) will make you any meal you can imagine and even teach you her family techniques. The vegetables she uses all comes from her garden on the property.
The property is amazing, but the hosts make this a true gem for those that appreciate that kind of service. The location of Podere Pievina is perfect to stay for many nights and make day trips to all of the small hilltop towns and wineries that surround this area.
Please don't confuse this property as a hotel, or a location to walk-out onto shops and restaurants. This is a farmhouse in the countryside that is the perfect representation of such if you are seeking that kind of adventure. It is for relaxing, eating, drinking, walking, napping, and is the perfect location to visit all of the amazing places that make Tuscany famous.
Podere Pievina will remain a wonderful memory of Tuscany forever...and until we meet again thank you Grazia and Oscar (and Emmy the dog) for allowing us to stay in your home.

Fabulous farmhouse for the family
We had the most wonderful stay at Podere Pievina! The accommodations were lovely, comfortable, and a convenient location. The beauty of the landscape and the villa make relaxing so simple and enjoyable. But the hosts are truly special people! We so enjoyed the cooking class and all of your recommendations to explore in the region. We can’t wait to come back!
The Perfect Tuscan Vacation Home!
Oscar & Grazia are wonderful hosts who have beautifully restored this incredible farmhouse into the perfect villa for a wonderfully memorable Tuscan holiday. The location is perfect for exploring the many charming towns and local vineyards. We'd suggest telling Oscar & Grazia what you'd like to do on your holiday and see if they have any recommendations. We followed their suggestions on several restaurants we went to and both vineyards we visited and everything was excellent. We stayed at the villa for 4 nights and wish we could have been there longer as there's so much to do in the surrounding area and it's also so nice to have time to relax and enjoy being at the beautiful villa. The kitchen is very well provisioned and we prepared breakfast there every morning before heading out as well as dinner two of the nights. If we had been a bit more organized with our itinerary, we would have loved to have planned to have Oscar & Grazia come to the villa one evening for a cooking class. In reading the guest book, many people called this out as a highlight of their visit and I'm certain it would have been lovely to spend the evening with Oscar & Grazia getting to know them better. They are special people who have created a very special holiday home. We all loved our stay here and hope to return again soon!
