Review 5631: Podere Vallari, Rose


Review by Kate Kilbourne from CA

1bed/1bath apartment near Riparbella, Tuscany West


May 2012, 1 week


I first came to Podere Vallari with a group as a surprise birthday gift for a good friend. We rented the farmhouse, and cooked every day, walked into Riparbella, toured the hill towns of Tuscany, and had such a good time that two years later I came back. This time was with my boyfriend and we rented the top floor apartment. Talk about romantic! We had views over the olive groves, a balcony where we enjoyed leisurely breakfasts in the sun, and a kitchen where I tried a couple of Ursula's own recipes. (I still carry her recipe for Tuscan Bread Salad around in my wallet.) This is a peaceful, country get-away in a great location for visiting some of the gems of Tuscany. Plus, wonderful hosts that I count as friends now, after spending two wonderful weeks with them in Riparbella.
