Dear Dee Dee and Gordon,
Thanks for your nice review. Hope that the rest of your Italien vacation went well and you returned home safely.
Beautiful location and helpful owner! Would 100% recommend
Thanks for your nice review, hope that the rest of your vacation was great. Just correction to the date of your staying it was 10th of September.
A great get away retreat! Very quiet and secure, was just what we needed.
Everything was very accurate as listed online; the directions to the property were spot on. We plan on visiting again as soon as our schedule allows. The property and it’s owners are wonderful hosts.
Thank you very much for your sincere and nice review. You have been a wonderful guest and it was a pleasure meeting you. Thanks also for a great personal note which you left for me in Limonaia.
Well cared for in a stunning setting
The owners were gracious and wonderful to visit with. We couldn't have asked for a better stay.
The place to stay for adventure and romance
What a gem! Our stay could not have been better, from the scenarie to the hosts, this is the place to stay. Our first night there was made special by our hosts catering to our thirst and stomachs, thank you so much! Next we rented a car and drove to Pisa and then through the backroads to San Giminano! The following day we visited several towns nearby suggested by our hosts, Cortona and Multepuciano and had a ball! The cottage has two patios, one very private and even its own kitchen garden! Dinner in Cortona is a must! The cottage is near a train station so it was easy to grab the train to Florence, thanks for the lift to the station Ludwik. It was hard to leave, we could have stayed forever and when we return to Italy, this is the only place we will go. Tuscany and the home of Lukwik and Margete made our trip so special, thank you so much for your hospitality, your warmth and guidance. On a scale of 1 to 10, you get all 10 stars! Give Gina a hug from us!
A typical Tuscan cypress lined via bianca connects the main road with a property that is surrounded by vineyards, including those belonging to the highly acclaimed Avignonesi and Antinori wineries. The town of Montalcino, world famous for its Brunello wine is also nearby. Our guests will enjoy the local foods and wines, as well as, the proximity of a myriad of historically important small and large, etruscan, medieval and renaissance towns. Among them are Cortona, Montepulciano, Arezzo, Siena, Perugia, Pienza, Montalcino, Castiglion del Lago and more.
What makes Podere Banditella particularly special is its fantastic location in Italy. From here you can reach some more distant important Italian destinations, not just in Tuscany and Umbria, but even within a day, cities like Rome, Florence, Pisa, Bologna and more; or the coasts of the Tyrrhenian and Adriatic sea. There are three train stations within about 15 minutes by car. From there you can go anywhere you want in Italy. The nearest airport is in Perugia. Rome and Florence airports are some two hours away. There are Taxi services available, but we advise that you rent a car. And of course, if you prefer to stay home, you can cook, barbecue, read or just do nothing enjoying the pool. Wine and good food is plentiful. Reasonably priced restaurants are nearby.
