„A che serve passare dei giorni, se poi non si ricordano?" Cesare Pavese

 

   
   
Berthold & Cordula, Köln (August 2015)

 

We should rather keep this as a secret...
Podere Santa Pia is the most beautiful holiday house ever...
In its simplicity the house is very rich and strong. (You won't be bothered by plastic flowers, if you know what i mean).
It was just the perfect place for us (4 adults and 6 children) to stay. You could always find a shady spot outside and let your eyes wander over the hills. Sunset every evening! Inside the house we enjoyed the huge kitchen - nothing was missing - and tried to bring our cooking skills to perfection. ;-)

If you are lucky, the landlords are in as well. They will give you a very warm welcome and provide you with
any kind of information you could ever imagine about tuscan history, art, food, wine or landscape.
We enjoyed our holiday a lot (batteries are fully recharged) and we often think back to the night with pizza and Parmoleto. We definitely have to return to this lovely spot of italy one day. Thank you!

Alweer een paar weken thuis, intussen. Maar Santa Pia is nog dichtbij.
We hadden 'zo'n mooie band', het huis en wij. En al zeg je dat niet, zo voelde het wel. Zeldzaam vertrouwd en vanzelfsprekend.
Bedankt dat we in jullie huis mochten wonen.

Evenings at Podere Santa Pia offer an enchanting atmosphere.The views are incredible, awaiting nightfall and the sound of the nightbird, the monotonous, fluting call of the scops owl... The property incorporates the perfect harmony for man and nature.

Wij hadden een zeer aangenaam en rustige vakantie in Podere Santa Pia. De advertentie loog er niet om, de woning ligt erg afgelegen, buiten het kleine dorpje, aan een klein grindweggetje. Het is juist die afgelegenheid die zorgt voor de enorme rust. De woning ligt midden in de natuur, met een spectaculair uitzicht op de heuvels. Vooral de zonsondergangen waren super mooi. De grote tuin met verschillende terrassen en hoekjes, zorgt er ook voor dat ondanks dat we met 6 personen waren, ieder zich in alle rust kon terugtrekken. Dit gold ook voor de woning zelf. Grote ruimtes, met een zeer grote living en keuken, en ruime slaapkamers. Alles heel simpel en eenvoudig ingericht, maar we hadden zeker alles wat we nodig hadden. We beschikten ook over twee badkamers en een buitendouche, wat met de hitte zeker geen overbodige luxe was. De eigenaars stonden ook klaar om elke vraag te beantwoorden, en de woning beschikt ook over een zeer omvangrijke website voor de omgeving. Omdat we met drie koppels gingen, was de vakantiewoning ook enorm betaalbaar, en er was zeker voldoende ruimte om met meer mensen te komen. Het was zeker niet onze laatste vakantie hier, we hebben enorm genoten van ons verblijf.

 

 

Evening sunset, Podere Santa Pia

“A large drop of sun lingered on the horizon and then dripped over and was gone, and the sky was brilliant over the spot where it had gone, and a torn cloud, like a bloody rag, hung over the spot of its going. And dusk crept over the sky from the eastern horizon, and darkness crept over the land from the east.” 

John Steinbeck, The Grapes of Wrath

 

Otilia, Bukarest, Rumania (October 2016)

This was one of the wildest (and beautiful) places we've stayed in our trip around Tuscany. Indeed the south of this region is magical and you can see that from the terrace of the house. In Podere Santa Pia you can get the full experience of living in a Tuscany country house, a charming and romantic place. Warming up with woods was part of it. We would like to thank our host for the extremely detailed printed instructions that we found on the table. We recommend this place for a lovely, intimate and wild vacation.

“The sky, at sunset, looked like a carnivorous flower.” 

“Bright colours in the west, giant butterflies dancing as night crept like a cripple toward the east.”
