PODERE SPAGLIARDA

Podere Spagliarda fraz. B n/12 San Quirico d'Orcia Siena

Description

The farmhouse dates back to early 1700 in the period in which the "Spedale Santa Maria della Scala" in Siena covered a crucial role in the care and acceptance of the Pilgrims who traveled to Rome or the Francigena to Santiago de Compostela. The pilgrims traveled about 25 miles a day on foot, so they had great need of refreshment, and for the most debilitated to be treated. Sprang up along the way many shelters for pilgrims, owned by the "Hospital". Spagliardi was one of these admissions, we used to think the change of horses, as there is a cistern to collect rain water back to the same period. In 1864 the small building of yellow stone that we can still see inside of the front is extended with white travertine stone, and becomes a great house. The ground floor used as stables and the first floor was used as a home for coloni.Intorno a chicken coop, a barn and other small farm buildings.

Wonderful hospitality from Manuela, the proprietor. Room clean and bed comfortable with an ensuite bath, and an overhead fan. Delicious cakes and buscuits, with jam and juice, for breakfast. What a location, in the Val D'Orcia, off the main road in the middle of the countryside. 360 degree views. Close to small and medium sized towns including Pienza, Multipulciano, and San Quirico. Just relax...

A beautiful stay in the middle of the Tuscan countryside based in a good location within easy access to key spots such as Pienza, Montalcino, Montepulciano etc (no more than 30mins drive to some of these locations). It's also a short drive + walk close to the location of one of the gladiator scenes where he walks amongst the wheat fields for any film fans! The farmhouse is lovely and the pool overlooking the fields is a real bonus! The room was spacious and very clean and looked like it had been recently refurbed. Double bed was very comfortable and powerful rain shower. Manuela the host is very friendly and gave us plenty of good recommendations for places to eat and things to do. Just a shame that we could not speak to her more as her English is limited so if you cannot speak Italian this could be a hindrance. She bakes cake for breakfast which is tasty but does get quite sweet after a few days so bit more variety would have helped. It's also not necessarily a large breakfast so if you're a big feaster would not satisfy.

You will ensure enjoy some spectacular views and the rooms are very comfortable. Our host gave us lots of really good recommendations for restaurants nearby. The location was also good, a short drive away from a number of pretty towns and the thermal baths. Only thing, that could be improved is breakfast, as it lacked some variety but ideal if you have a sweet tooth.

A wonderful place to stay. It was a great base to explore the surrounding area. Our host was very nice and the farmhouse rooms were spacious and seemed newly renovated.

La mia esperienza è stata piacevole e tranquilla, il posto bellissimo e ben curato. I proprietari sono gentili e socievoli e ti fanno sentire a tuo agio. Le camere bellissime e pulite bene. Sono stati tre giorni bellissimi. Saluti da Marta e Renzo, auguri di buona Pasqua.

L' agriturismo è ubicato al centro dei principali luoghi da visitare della Val' d'Orcia; in pochi minuti di auto si arriva nei paesi di San Quirico, Bagno Vignoni, Pienza. SI trova in una posizione di assoluta tranquillità, lo sguardo si perde sulle sinuose forme delle colline circostanti. E' un ottima struttura, recentemente ristrutturata mantenendo la forma e gli spazi dei tipici casolari. Una nota di merito alla pulizia delle camere e delle parti comuni. Ho molto apprezzato la disponibilità dei proprietari di venire incontro ad ogni esigenza. Molto buona la cena, preparata con prodotti di alta qualità e nel rispetto della tradizione. Ci ritornerò sicuramente in una diversa stagione e per godermi la piscina che in corso di ultimazione.

Un posticino davvero unico. Podere bellissimo dentro e fuori con tutti i comfort, posizione STRE PI TO SA, tranquillità, natura, privacy e situato in zona comoda per bellissime visite a Pienza, Montalcino, Montepulciano, Terme di Bagno Vignoni, San Filippo, Siena e tanto altro. Il Borgo di San Quirico, dove è presente anche un supermercatino, a pochissima distanza. E' abbastanza?
