Guestbook comments from the manager

Derek and Lauren. We had a terrific time at Podere Ampella. The views are amazing probably the best in Tuscany. The bedrooms and the house is a perfect retreat and we will be back hopefully for the wine harvest in October. Thank you for such a great time.

John Harvey. My wife and I had a wonderful peaceful and relaxing holiday in the care of Podere Ampella. We visited the nearby thermal baths and feel completely rejuvenated.

A heavenly pool.......and countryside

  • 5 of 5

We spent three weeks at Podere Ampella in a spacious, comfortable 2BR/2BA house. It was one of five on the property and was very quiet and private......With summer temperatures during our stay in the high nineties and over 100F, the very large and cool water of the pool was wonderful.

This property is in San Giovanni D'asso, one of five mountain top villages. There were at least a half a dozen small towns and mideval villages near by, making daily outings easy and a real treat.

The owner, Paola and her husband, and staff, Laura and Victor did everything they could to make our stay pleasurable. We recommend this property for a fun vacation.
