“Heaven in Chianti” Poderi Val Verde was the setting for a fabulous vaction with extended family (12), including teenagers. The location was great as we could take a number of day trips to explore Tuscany, from Florence to Siena and small, quaint town throughout the Chianti area. At the end of our long days, we returned to share our stories and much laughter with Ulrike and Fabian, her son. As the weather was unusually hot, it was wonderful to jump in the pool to cool off and relax. The grounds of Poderi Val Verde were terrific. We hiked on the trails, fed the goats, played ping pong, wandered through fragrant gardens and many hours on the patios, playing cards and making great memories. Each morning Ulrike had a terrific breakfast lined up for us. Fresh eggs from her chickens, homemade jams, a variety of cheeses, yogurts and other goodies. The dinners Ulrike prepared were out of this world-- wild boar, venison, pastas and one night an amazing variety of cheeses. Ulrike and Fabian were terrific hosts, helping us learn about the culture and the region. Ulrike's expertise was instrumental in guiding us so well with our planning. Our teenagers and young adults were never bored and so enjoyed the company of Fabian and Ulrike. Of course, nearby Castellina in Chianti with amazing gelato was the hit on most nights! We had so much to do and a week wasn't enough to take it all in. We dream of returning in future years. If you go, and you really should, stay two weeks and have the time of your life!
“Fabulous!!!” Thank you so much for a wonderful week!!! Villa Vetrichina surpassed our expectations--what a beautiful villa set in an unbelievable Tuscan countryside with plenty of room for 11 people (5 couples and one daughter). Everyone had their own bedroom with private bath.
We will never forget the wonderful hospitality shown to us by Patrizia and her family. Everything was perfect. Upon arrival we were treated to a scruptuous (and very bountiful) meal prepared by our hosts. We booked a pizza party and cooking class where we prepared the entire meal from scratch in Partizia's outdoor kitchen--so much fun! We were treated often to Patrizia's homemade treats. Any questions are help needed were taken care of quickly by our hosts.
We shall never have another vacation that will be better than this one!
