  • Stunning Location, Ideal For Touring Tuscany

    "We had a fantastic time at this villa, which enjoys great views of San Gimignano. The location is ideally situated for visiting Siena and Volterra and provides a great pool for relaxation in the sun. The property comfortably accommodated 10 of us (2 families) and is free from noise."

  • Beautiful setting and charming house

    "When my two daughters asked me how I wanted to celebrate my 80th birthday I chose to rent a villa somewhere in Tuscany for three weeks. We could not have made a better choice than the Antico Podere Il Sole Rota in Sovicille. The restored farmhouse has six bedrooms and four baths and easily accommodated the 10 members of the family and close friends who joined us for various lengths of time over the three weeks. Sovicille is conveniently located in the Siena area and we made many trips to nearby medieval villages, plus special outings to Siena, Assisi, and Florence. Members of our host's family live nearby and were quick to respond when we had questions, needed translations to Italian in order to make reservations, and on two occasions to come in to prepare a wonderful meal! Many of our group are avid walkers and made numerous trips into the village of Sovicille and walked for miles around the area. You do need at least one car but there is reliable bus service into Siena and train service from there to Florence was great! The kitchen is well-equipped and the Internet connection works just fine. Not much English TV available but nobody missed it! I personally spent many hours just sitting in the beautiful yard overlooking the pool and gorgeous wooded scene. The weather was ideal - 70's and gorgeous sunshine almost every day in September leading into October. I sincerely hope to return to Podere Rota someday and was very sad to leave on the final day."

  • Outstanding property, incredible hosts,

    "There are really not words to describe our 10 days in Tuscany at this beautiful, beautiful villa. My wife and I were guests of our kids and grandkids for our 50th wedding anniversary. The experience was indescribably wonderful, much of that attributable to this beautiful villa and our hosts, Luca and Letizia. We were in the villa on the right as you look at the picture, which sleeps 8. Luca, an architect, completely restored what was centuries ago a tobacco factory. It is spacious, open, beautifully restored and appointed -- comfortable in every way. Having read a review praising Luca for conducting a cooking class, we decided to do the same. Luca and Letizia, his beautiful wife, prepared an awesome dinner with our family helping -- the best risotto I have ever eaten, roast chicken, beef, wine and outstanding tiramasu for dessert. This evening with Luca and Letizia ranks at the top of the list of memorable Tuscany experiences, and that is saying something given the magnifence of the remainder of the trip. If you are going to Tuscany, do yourself a favor and arrange to stay here. You will, I am sure, have an experience as uniquely pleasurable as we did. thanks Luca, Letizia and, of course, William, their delightful American bulldog who will laugh about every time we are with the grandkids who joined us."

  • Spacious, clean, well equipped and welcoming

    "A lovely property in a quiet area, convenient for both Sienna, countryside and the seaside. We arrived later than anticipated due to unforseen circumstances but the housekeeper was waiting and still welcoming. Renza dealt with any queries quickly and efficiently."
