About this Hotel
Price From $109
Don't be alarmed if there's no one around when you stroll across the lawn to the check-in desk. Chances are owner Giorgio Girardi is in the back tinkering with the tractor, while his wife, Renate, is in the gardens.
Il Poderuccio lies just down the road from Sant'Angelo in Colle, a hilltop medieval village in the heart of Brunello wine country.
Giorgio is proud to have strung vines along only half of his available acreage. Locals think he's crazy to limit his production of one of Italy's most famousand famously expensivered wines, but Giorgio prefers keeping the operation small enough to run single-handedly.
Renate has filled six large guest rooms with thoughtful touches, such as mosquito screens (rare in Italy), plenty of towels (rare everywhere), and garlands of dried lavender perched on windowsills.
There are pretty nooks throughout the propertybenches under shade trees, a swimming pool in the olive grove, perfect stacks of wood.
Breakfast is served in the sunny front porch in cool weather and during the summer shifts to the back patio with views straight out of a Renaissance paintingdistant mountains above green and gold fields striped with vines and spiked with cypress trees.
Rate includes breakfast. Open Easter–November.
