Amazing house with a great pool! Amazing stay.
We weren’nt really prepared for the location on the countryside a bit away from all the vineyards and vineranks.
What a beauty!
It’s always a challenge ( for us!) to find something different and special to make the most of a family break. For us that includes 14-30 year old kids.
Tuscany is special. The reviews importantly very very good.
This was outstanding.
Ok yes it’s a 2 1/2 hr drive from the airport or comfortable train journey for 2 of our gang. But worth the wait.
John has been very informative ahead of there trip and when booking. Antonio was so helpful when we were ringing ahead and on arrival to give us a detailed tour around the villa.
The villa itself was far more than we expected. Clean. Beautifully tidy. Spacious. The kitchen outstandingly well equipped. A pool bigger than your standard holiday apology. (Slightly salty to deter flies etc). Patios and all bakes and chairs on either side of the building. Both - especially one big enough to get out of the sun and relax and host dinner. So you can be by the pool, stay out of the sun or retire (get lost) in the bedrooms. (Ok the writer had the main bedroom with our own very large private patio / balcony).
A bottle and goodies left for our arrival complimented Antonio so we knew we had owners who genuinely cared about their guests. The copious notes of where to go etc was brilliant. (And accurate!)
We felt privileged to be staying here. We said so when we rang the everso helpful John help sort the TV out. (Satellite to allow us) to watch the cricket World Cup was a complete bonus. As was strong internet despite being rather remote.
The gardens are well tendered and the sunset - well if it’s as if the valley was built to specifically highlight the glorious dusk.
This is truly beautiful place - if you want to be out in the country (which we did). Yes it’s a good drive to a big supermarket but the you do the big shop. The fridges etc are well big enough to cope.
A bonus was the lack of mosquitoes but maybe we were lucky?
Definitely value for more. Definitely understated in the advert and absolutely just what we wanted.
Diolch! A s we say in Wales 🏴�������
A perfect place to be
Like last summer we spent again 2 wonderful weeks in Podere Petrella. As a party of 10 (from 19 to 78 years old) each of us enjoyed every single moment. We love everything about the house and would love to return next summer. The house, the pool, the landscape, the owner , the local contact … everything is just perfect.
Toscane at its best
Back in Holland with nice memories from the Chandler castle.
Splendid house! With the kitchen equipment you could start
a restaurant. A huge veranda in the shade with
long table. Big swimming pool. Effective oak tree
near the water also providing shade. The house,
veranda, terrace and swimming pool are clever combinated.
We had houses in Italy where we had to walk 100 mtrs and more
for the pool. Not convenient when you want a drink.
Vents on the ceiling in the sleeping rooms were perfect for
Children loved the huge collection of DVD’s for the evening.
I saw the fotographs of the building in 2002. Must have been
a real challenge. By the way the house in real is better than the
pictures on the web.
The last mile driving is a little bit bumpy but also increasing the adventure feeling.
Juniper the local contact is service oriented. Good guy.
With some experience in Italy with renting
holiday houses we would grade this house on number one!
This is Toscane at its best.

Beautiful villa in stunning location
This is a superb property. It is equipped to a very high standard, well maintained, spacious and situated in a fantastic setting with glorious views. The pool is large and is kept immaculately clean.
The drive down to the property from the main road is a little rough, but we had no problems with it and is perhaps to be expected given the privacy and isolation which the property enjoys.
We spent a lot of the time at the house, but there are plenty of beautiful towns nearby which are well worth visiting. We ventured further afield only once, to Siena, though Pisa, Rome and Florence are all within reach.
We enjoyed a decent, good value meal in Arcille and a wonderful, dearer but even better value, meal in Istia d'Ombrone.
I have no hesitation in saying that this is the best holiday of this type we have ever had and I thoroughly recommend this property.
A beautiful villa in the most peaceful countryside
I stayed in this vila with my husband and two young children (2.5 years and 8 months) plus both sets of parents.
We all had a fantastic holiday in this amazing villa which had everything you could ever want/need on a holiday. John and Angie even bought an inflatable boat for my son to use in the pool during our stay.
The accomadation is easily 5 star and was so incredibly spacious that we never felt on top of each other.
All the bedrooms are of equal size (other than the master) are big and beautifully decorated/furnished. As is every room in the villa.
We tended to hang round the pool rather than explore Tuscany but we don't feel as if we missed out in any way.
From the moment you contact John and Angie they make you feel so welcome. Infact, we felt it was more like renting from a friend than someone on the internet. John and Angie actually flew out to meet us the day we were leaving!
We would recommend this villa if you are looking for the perfect relaxing holiday with great company, superb views and amazing food and wine.
Located one mile from Polveraia a tiny village and 25 minutes from Grosseto a city with all amenities. The house is in a rural area with stunning long views. Beautiful hill top towns like Scansano are located within 30 minutes of the house. The beaches of the Maremma including Castiglione della Pescaia, Talamone and Marina de Grosseto are all easily reached within 50 minutes. Rome is 2 hours south and Sienna 1 hour to the north, but heaven is at the house.
