#1 of 11 Speciality lodging in Monticiano
Villa Podernovo is an eighteenth-century a farmhouse with swimming pool near Siena that we have transformed into a cozy vacation villa. It is located in the heart of the Val di Merse, a region between the Crete Senesi and the Maremma, less known than Chianti or Val d'Orcia but perhaps even more authentic and yet to be discovered. The villa is only 3 minutes walk from the village which has all the necessary services. At the same time it enjoys privacy and is surrounded by well-kept green areas and Mediterranean woodland. The rental of the villa is ideal for families and group holidays. The individual apartments are also available for rental when the villa is not already privately rented. Villa Podernovo is also a romantic location for rustic-chic, festive weddings in San Galgano Abbey, which houses the legendary 'Sword in the rock'. The abbey is situated only 7 km from the villa and is a unique venue for weddings. This makes Villa Podernovo an ideal location for wedding celebrations and for a honeymoon.

Hard to decide where to start! Everything about this place is magic! We got married at villa podernovo in this challenging year of 2020! Diana & Grazia helped us from day one, when we had only a little idea of our wedding, through the whole process of creating ideas and putting them into reality and into our dream wedding! They were with us through all the ups and downs of this year and there was no challenge to big to take! Everything from the decoration to the food to the prediners etc was more perfect than we could imagine on our drems! We created memories at villa podernovo with our family and friends that we will cherish for a lifetime! Biggest thank you to Diana and the whole team for working so hard to make others dream come true! Always thankful!!

Diana is amazing! The villa is beautiful! I highly recommend this venue. It was an absolute dream and Diana has every recommendation for a vendor you could need! I felt I didn’t participate in planning as much as it looked like I must have because our wedding was gorgeous!

Perfect! Villa Podernovo is the perfect wedding venue and was the dream backdrop for our wedding. We hired the villa for a week so we could spend quality time with our family and friends ahead of the day. The villa is beautifully decorated with plenty of space. On the day, the spaces flowed so nicely together that everyone has plenty of space, but everyone is together regardless of whether they are on the dancefloor and sitting down to relax and chat. Arranging our wedding from Sydney, we had concerns when booking a venue without seeing it in person, but we could not have been in safer hands with Diana. From the moment we met Diana via skype and spoke about the venue and options for our wedding the process was absolutely seamless. Diana, Tito and Grazia are all so kind and were wonderful support to not only us but our families. Whether it was having a chat or providing recommendations and bookings for the area. The Villa The villa is beautiful. There is plenty of space for all guests to relax and the rooms are beautifully decorated. A second building has a large common area for everyone to eat together. Photos don't do the villa justice - it's impeccably looked after. Wedding We asked Diana to coordinate our wedding. Trust Diana – she will not let you down. Diana took the time to get to know us, our vision for the day and helped us create the most beautiful setting. Her advice and guidance turned our thoughts into the most perfect day. Whilst a lot of couples opt to marry in the abbey, we chose to have our ceremony under the oak tree at the villa. It created such a relaxed atmosphere for our guests as we didn’t have to change locations. Pizza Party Diana helped organise a pizza party the night before our wedding. Diana and Grazia set up the tables and liaised with the catering team. It was the perfect way for our guests to get to know each other better and kick-start the wedding weekend. We can highly recommend the pizza party whether you are staying for a holiday or planning your wedding. We’ve received so many complements from our guests about the venue, the food and the setting. Diana, Tito and Grazia – thank you for everything. You looked after us, our family and friends so well and we are grateful. We cannot say thank you enough for letting us use Villa Podernovo for our wedding. It was perfect and we cannot wait to come back and stay.

I just recently had my wedding at Villa Podernovo (Sep. 21, 2019) and it couldn't have been more incredible! Diana and Grazia and the rest of the Villa Podernovo team really know what they're doing and put on an absolutely incredible event. We did a pizza party, the wedding reception and brunch all at the villa and it ROCKED! We stayed at the villa for 5 days and my guests (who stayed with us) had nothing but the best reviews/thoughts on the whole experience. My family and friends also said that this wedding was, hands-down, the most beautiful and best wedding they have ever attended. That is truly because of Diana and all the vendors and folks that support her. If you're looking for a wedding venue I would HIGHLY HIGHLY HIGHLY recommend having your wedding here. You will not be dissapointed...I can gaurantee it will be better than you ever even imagined.

Our wedding at Villa Podernovo was absolutely amazing. During our 5 day stay at the villa, where bride and groom's family could all stay together, all couples in separate apartments, we also utilised the premises for a welcome picnic/lunch and the reception after the wedding ceremony. Couples have the option of using the owner, Diana Grandi, as wedding planner/coordinator, which we highly recommend. Diana was incredibly responsive for everything. Diana was able to put us into contact with and organise tastings for the local catering services. For wedding design and coordination, working with her was always easy, she understood our tastes and ideas for what we wanted for our wedding. For our entire stay and for wedding day, the Villa Podernovo staff were always there for assistance and support. All of our guests loved the location and atmosphere. For us, it was the perfect booking.
