Podere il Cercato
Absolutely stunning and fabulous!
As with other reviewers we should really be keeping this place a secret as it was the absolute highlight of our Italy holiday. Instead we will tell the world how wonderful it was. We booked both apartments and so had the entire downstairs of the farmhouse. We will remember the al fresco dining (especially breakfasts) and stunning views as well as the immensely warm hospitality (those words don't do it justice) of our hosts Laura, Alberto and the girls.
The village provided excellent eating, bakers, gelato and other shopping options and was only a 20 min walk away (up hill on way back!). Caffeine shots in the local cafe were a highlight as were the ice creams from the shop on the bridge.
The accommodation was immaculate and the swimming pool a welcome place to cool off after walks (thanks to Laura and Alberto for loan of the maps enabling us to do a 25km walk up the local mountains).
Negatives - there weren't any.
Hopefully readers will ignore this post so that the property will be vacant when we next want to return to Tuscany.
p.s. we were a family of 7 English speakers travelling from Asia. We booked through the very efficient and helpful Fiona at rent-a-villa-in-tuscany.com.
