This review is also listed under Villa Podere, which is the actual name of the villa. Each agency appears to have their own names for their rentals. We leased this villa under the name of "Villa Panorama" through Emma Villas. We were very pleased with both the villa and the agency. The previous review follows:
We just returned from a week's holiday at this amazing villa! We had a group of seven couples and everyone loved it. Francesco and Natalie were wonderful and gracious hosts and the location is stunning. The villa is even better than the pictures shown on the internet. By all means, if you have a large group of friends, a family, etc., I highly recommend this villa as offering the very best of what I expected (hoped) to find in a Tuscan holiday. A beautifully renovated historic structure, modern amenities, gorgeous scenic vistas, and a short walk into town (Chianni).
Chianni is quaint and scenic, but please note that there is no grocery shopping available on Sundays and that the local constables are "creative" in applying the parking regulations; be careful where you park on-street, if you are a visitor with a rental car.
We booked through an agency, and it appears that each agency has its own name for their villas. We booked it as Villa Panorama. We were also very pleased with that agency.
All in all, I can't say enough good things about our vacation and I look forward to returning.
