Tranquil hilltop farmhouse with wonderful views of Tuscan valleys. Welcoming rooms, delicious organic food and engaging hosts

Read guest comments

Watch sunsets fire the Tuscan hills; catch the sunrise as it brings the valleys alive. Views from this hilltop farmhouse roll off in every direction. It is peaceful here, and beautiful. Breakfast is a delicious feast that merges into lunch, with produce from the organic farm, and Silvia and Paolo, a well-travelled, warm and adventurous couple, are happy for you to be as active or as idle as you like. Eat in the big farmhouse kitchen or under the pergola, as deer wander across the field below. Paolo is full of ideas and will take you sailing in his six-berth boat that has crossed the Atlantic – or organise wine-tasting and cycling trips. The beamed and terracotta tiled bedrooms are airy and welcoming, full of soft, Tuscan colours and furnished with simplicity but care: antiques, monogrammed sheets, great showers. B&B guests are in the main house (private entrance) while the studio is in the converted barn. Visit Siena, medieval Buonconvento, Tuscan hill towns. Come back and laze around the pool with a glass of wine and a fabulous view.

"It is several years since I visited Podere Salicotto. It was a wonderful experience and still lives on in my memory. It is the best place I have visited in its category . Beautiful. I absolutely recommend it ."

"It is remiss of me not have reviewed the fantastic beautiful Salicotto before now. We have stayed there on numerous occasions and found it just gets better and better. Apart from the glorious views, the podere itself has wonderful stylish rooms with comfortable beds, and we try never to miss the feast at brunch. Salicotto though, is wonderful because of the hosts Paolo and Silvia. They are very helpful, kind and nothing is too much trouble. We would find it terribly difficult to go anywhere else and would only do so if they were fully booked!"
