My husband, son and I spent a wonderful five days at Podere Le Rondini, about 30 minutes south of Florence. It's in an ideal location to visit many of the well-known medieval towns and villages in Tuscany, such as Certaldo, Siena, and San Gimignano, as well as close to Florence, itself (a rental car is necessary). Owner/Manager Nicola was extremely welcoming and helpful, providing multiple maps and suggestions for touring the region. He responded to our every question and could not have been nicer. We had a comfortable two-bedroom, two-bath unit in a building that had one other unit. A larger villa was also available for bigger groups. Each until has an outdoor patio/eating area. The views over the vineyards and olive groves are gorgeous. The property is meticulously maintained with beautiful rose beds blooming throughout. The pool was lovely, although a bit cold in mid-May! We also took advantage of being on a working farm to visit the wine production coop nearby and learn more about the wine industry in the Chianti region. Wine-tasting is available, as well. Nicola was a wealth of information. I recommend Le Rondini without hesitation!
