Podere Bogacciano exceeded our expectations!. The property is just beautiful, with spots to sit and enjoy the views at every turn. The infinity pool and outdoor kitchen were wonderful. We hated to leave to explore the area. Pienza, Orvieto, Sansepulcro etc were great day trips. Monterchi is tiny but has two good restaurants and several places for coffee. Thoroughly enjoyed it!!
We had barely landed back in Canada before we were discussing how and when we can return to Italy, and, more particularly, the villa Podere Borgacciano! We spent a week at the villa in early July 2019 and had the most wonderful time and experienced the most wonderful scenery and towns of this region of Tuscany. The day trips to Castiglion Fiorentino, Cortona, Siena, Anghiari, Citerna, Sansepolcro, Monte Santa Maria Tiberina, etc. were just fantastic. We would generally drive to these towns in the morning and return to villa in the late afternoon to enjoy the beautiful pool and some of the fine organic PB wine… who could ask for better!? The villa is lovely and we appreciated the air conditioning in the bedrooms, the ensuite bathrooms, and all the kitchen amenities! The gardens, patio and pool area are beautiful and well maintained and the views are breathtaking.
We usually ate breakfast outside on the patio, enjoying the peace and quiet (but for the singing birds), cool and stillness of the morning, and the beautiful views of Monterchi. It was heaven on earth.
We made several trips to Marcello’s market, and he was always warm and friendly and as helpful as he could be given our limited Italian. Our lively interactions with Marcello and his staff were always very enjoyable, though, as we were made to feel as welcome as all the locals who frequented his shop.
Danny and Janette were lovely hosts. They provided us with a huge amount of information on the culture and history of the area, and introduced us to some lovely restaurants that we otherwise wouldn’t have experienced if not for their recommendations. We shared a dinner at the restaurant in Monterchi’s main piazza one evening, and as luck would have it, there was an outdoor concert in the piazza as well, which made for a magical evening under the Tuscan moon. We also had a lovely lunch with them at Monte Santa Maria Tiberina, another gorgeous medieval hill-top town we would probably not have known about if it wasn’t for Danny’s and Janette’s local insights.
It was such a pleasure meting you all and to find out how little we knew about Newfoundland !
Thank you so much for your wonderful review and we would love to welcome you all back soon.
Better than any pictures!
We had a wonderful time at Podere Borgacciano! Danny and Janette were absolutely amazing hosts and ensured we had everything we needed. The grounds are nothing short of spectacular. I would have been happy to stay there for the entire time, but we did venture out on day trips (Florence, Cortona/Arezzo, Montalcino, Montepulciano and Pienza...all easy drives). We made sure to take a few days to just relax at the house. Pool and hot tub area were wonderful and relaxing, and the movie selection for quiet nights was pretty great! Something for everyone!
Highlights of our stay included a wonderful walk into Monterchi to explore for the day (it is an absolutely lovely town), the hospitality of Marcello's market, gelato and pizza at Bar Caronte, a home cooked meal by the lovely Graziella, and for the 6 year old... the chickens and looking for eggs. :)
I booked this myself after researching and the reviews don't lie... it was truly amazing. One of the most beautiful views I have ever seen. Wouldn't hesitate to come back!!
Thank you for the lovely review. We are so happy to hear how much you enjoyed your stay. It is a wonderful feeling for us to be able to share the beauty our beloved Podere Borgacciano.
First of all - the photos do not do this place justice. It is much more beautiful and scenic in real life !
We really enjoyed our week at the house. Is in a very quiet, beautiful part of the countryside. Completely void of tourists, but still plenty to do within a short drive. The house itself has everything you could want. The pool area is huge and amazing. Not quite warm enough for the pool when we were there, but made great use of the hot tub and other amenities including the ping pong table. The house has many sitting areas and views around the property. Great places to sit and admire the views with a glass of vino.
Our 12 yr old daughter enjoyed all the extra touches that Janette & Danny have done including the trampoline, foosball table, and of course that hot tub. Also enjoyed checking the chooks for eggs each day.
The local area had several hilltop villages that were worth visiting and even the ancient monastery of La Verna was not too far away and worth a visit.
Couple of quick tips: Nearby restaurant of La Pieve Vecchia has beautiful reasonably priced food & wine, definitely our favourite. Also, if you are in the area on a Sunday , go to the local Monterchi market and get a porchetta roll (pork). They are delicious.
Overall we had a fantastic time and would love to return one day.
