Overview

At Podere Salicotto we don’t need pictures, you just have to open the window! With us you choose an experience in complete relax, enjoy splendid and panoramic views at the top of a hill, in a lovely country estate with only 7 bedrooms.
Podere Salicotto is in a strategic location and away from crowded places, 2 km from Buonconvento on a paved road, between Crete Senesi and Val d’Orcia, along the Via Francigena.

Podere Salicotto was love at first sight : Silvia and Paolo renovated it with the wish to share with their guests the slow travel experinece being nourished by an untouched beauty rolling off in every direction. We offer many quality services such as sweet and savory breakfast, homemade bread and cakes, honey and pecorino-cheeses from local producers, Tuscan ham and freshly prepared eggs. Coffee is special: wood roasted, air cooled. If you wish you can visit the roaster and enjoy a pairing with chocolate and pastries.

Take a dip in the panoramic salt-water infinity pool and relax on the solarium beds with a glass of good wine while your gaze wanders over the Tuscan hills and you are already feeling at home.

On the wine note: welcome to the land of Sangiovese grapes!
You have free access 24 / 24H to our cellar stocked with excellent local Red wines (Rosso) and Brunellos from small producers around Montalcino and a fridge with soft drinks and white wines. It's the honor system here at home: you help yourselves and pay upon departure. Paolo will be happy to introduce you to this stunning wine world during a tasting in the cellar.

The barbecue is equipped and available, you can store your groceries in the shared refrigerator and you have free access to the cupboard with crockery.

We offer hands-in-the-dough cooking classes in our private home, dinners altogether at sunset, hikes and bike rides (bike rental available) and much more.

A few tips for unforgettable travel experiences: the best ice cream ever at Buongusto in Pienza, the Etruscan museum in Murlo - a real gem, the Bravio delle Botti festival in Montepulciano, the civic museum in Piazza del Campo in Siena and the Palio, the medieval festival in Monteriggioni. We are happy to provide you with all the information for a holiday off the beaten track.

We are close to: Siena and Chianti, Montalcino, Pienza, Montepulciano, S. Quirico d'Orcia, Bagno Vignoni, Radicofani, Abbeys of S.Antimo, Monte Oliveto Maggiore and San Galgano. And more: the Maremma to the South with Pitigliano, Sorano and Sovana; San Gimignamo and Volterra to the North; Arezzo and Cortona to the East.

You can reach us by train. We offer a free shuttle service to and from the Buonconvento railway station, on arrival and departure.

Welcome to Podere Salicotto, a real special place.
P.S. Warning, it can be addictive.

Guest Reviews

Podere Salicotto est un endroit très agréable, typiquement toscan avec une belle allée de cyprès et une belle demeure restaurée avec beaucoup de goût . L'accueil de Paolo et Sylvia est très chaleureux. Ils sont très intentionnés et soucieux que nous passions un agréable séjour chez eux. La visite des lieux avec Paolo en français, nous a permis de faire connaissance. Nous étions logés dans la suite Belvédère ou nous étions quatre, William, Pascale et nos deux filles Emmanuelle et Claire. Le panorama est superbe, la piscine délicieuse, on est comme chez soi. Les petits déjeuners sont délicieux, variés et copieux, Sylvia prépare toujours une tarte avec les légumes du jardin, et on se régale!! La proximité de Sienne, Montalcino, Montepulciano et d'autres villages aux alentours nous ont permis de découvrir la toscane avec ses richesses. Bref,nous avons passé un excellent séjour chez Sylvia et Paolo et nous les remercions.

Petit coin de paradis dans une région magnifique . Le site est très accueillant chaleureux tout comme ses propriétaires. Nous avons passé d'excellentes vacances à découvrir la région, profiter de la superbe piscine à débordement avec un paysage a 360°. La sortie en voilier fut le top ... Nous recommandons vivement cet endroit tant pour le lieu magique que pour Silvia qui est d'une gentillesse incroyable et de bons conseils.

Séjour de charme et de détente totale dans ce petit paradis toscan. Je suis Doris, la responsable du site chambres d'hôtes de charme, ayant séjourné 3 nuits du 19 juin au 22 juin 2013 à Podere Salicotto lors de notre 2ème étape en Toscane en compagnie de mon mari, ma fille de12 ans et mes parents. Nous avons été enchantés par notre séjour et sommes heureux de vous faire partager notre expérience... L'accueil des propriétaires Paolo et Silvia et le sourire irrésistible de Silvia nous a charmé dès notre arrivée. A la fois discrets, disponibles et attentionnés, ils ont comblé nos attentes jusqu'à la fin de notre séjour. A notre arrivée, Paolo nous a présenté notre chambre et ensuite les lieux et espaces communs du domaine. Nous avons occupé le Studio Belvédère, chambre indépendante très confortable et spacieuse rénovée avec beaucoup de charme à aire ouverte avec un coin séjour, une table et des chaises et une cuisine équipée. Le plus : Immenses portes fenêtres avec une vue magnifique sur les collines... L'environnement est exceptionnel et magique en plein coeur des collines toscanes et si paisible qu'il vous procure une détente totale. Superbe piscine d'eau salée - La vue panoramique 360 degrés et les douces couleurs des paysages nous émerveillent à toutes heures de la journée. Plusieurs bancs sont installés afin d'admirer les merveilleux couchers de soleil Tout est pensé pour se sentir en vacances et à l'aise comme chez soi... Une cuisine, un barbecue et la cave à vin sont à la disposition des hôtes en tout temps pour être libre de faire ses repas et déguster un bon vin de petits producteurs locaux sur la terrasse. Succulents petits déjeuners composés de tartes aux légumes et ricotta et gâteaux faits maisons et produits locaux: fromages, charcuteries, fruits frais.... Un vrai délice pour bien commencer la journée. Le personnel au petit déjeuner est souriant et attentionné. Le petit déjeuner est servi sur la terrasse pour rendre ce moment encore plus agréable. La situation idéale de Podere Salicotto nous a permis de visiter la ville de Sienne et les villages de Pienza, Montalcino et Montepulciano à une distance d'environ 20 minutes A environ 1 heure vous pourrez aussi visiter la ville de Florence. Nous avons sympathisé avec des hôtes australiens et anglais qui séjournaient aussi à Podere Salicotto. Tout le monde était ravi et comblé. Tout était parfait!!! Un lieu et un accueil qui resteront gravé dans nos plus beaux souvenirs. Un grand merci à Paolo et Silvia pour leur accueil chaleureux et partager avec nous leur petit paradis. L'Art de recevoir ! Un petit trésor caché toscan qui mérite grandement le détour !!! Un lieu à recommander pour un séjour de détente et de découvertes en couple ou entre amis
