We're Italian but since we went here and knew that the most of guests come from foreign countries I would prefer to leave my comments in English as anyone could easily understand. We are staying at Podere Zelmira just in these days and we could honestly declare that it's almost our second house, the only place where we feel even better than at home. We came here the first time last August 2012 and this is now the fifth time we are staying here. We feel free to say that Amalia and Marino has become almost our friends. We found this holiday-house on vacanzeanimali.it which is an italian website for who is looking for some places to go on holiday with dogs. We have a medium size black dog called Zorro and we are sure that even it enjoys this place so much and everyone here love him. This structure is settle on a hill and it's surrounded by olive trees, all around is peace and silence and relax, in August the weather is always hot but dry and when you are relaxing by the beatiful garden with the swimming pool there is always a lovely breeze.
Podere Zelmira is located at a best position if you want to visit the surrounding towns such as Pienza, Montepulciano, Arezzo, Cortona, Montalcino, Siena or Perugia as well. The town Sinalunga is quite charming, people are kind with tourists and you can find everything you need because there are at least 5 supermarket, many reastaurants, banks and every service that you might need so that you can think of relaxing holiday with all that you might have by your house. We stayed two times in the double room IL PRATO and two times in the flat IL COLLE SOPRA, now we are staying in the little flat L'AIA for 12 days and we won't go back home.. The flats has every furniture, appliances and equipments to cook at home and it's wonderful to eat at dinner looking the panoramic view down the hill. In the surrounding towns there are many traditional fairs in spring summer and autumn and you can find and eat the traditional Tuscan food and wines at a very cheap price. In Sinalunga and everywhere near there are also many cellars and olive oil, pecorino cheese, salami and wine manufacturers and you can both visit or buy gourmets by them.
We enjoy so much travelling all around Italy, Europe and the whole world but at least once a year we come here because we believe there is no other places like Podere Zelmira.
