FAQs

Booking specific apartments blocks our tableau and it doesn’t allow us to host everyone who wants to come visit us because it prevents us from optimising our availability. For this reason, we have organized our apartments in categories (one bedroom, superior with one bedroom, two bedrooms, superior with two bedrooms) and then we allocate families to the apartments according to their category of choice and our availability.

Of course, it is possible to book a specific apartment by contacting us directly and paying a little extra. If it is a matter of simple preferences (such as ground floor or first floor, or the number of bathrooms) please let us know and we will do our best to fulfil your requests, according to our availability.

Of course! Podere Botraccio, with its swimming pool, barbecue area and parking, is the perfect solutions for groups up to 20 people. But whatever the size of your group, contacts us and and we will formulate a quote considering your needs.

The price includes linen (sheets, towels and household linen with free change only for stays longer than one week), water, gas and electricity consumption and final cleaning of the house (we only require guests to leave the kitchen area clean and throw away the rubbish when leaving; upon request or in case of non-fulfilment, we can provide these services at a cost of 20 and 10 euros respectively); the use of common areas equipped with outdoor tables, chairs and barbecues, the parking near the cottages, the Wi-Fi connection present in each apartment and sun umbrellas, sunbeds and deckchairs near the swimming pools.
The price doesn’t include: tourist tax of €1,00 per person (if aged 10+) per night for the first five nights, pool towels (they can be rented for €5,00 for the entire stay), the costs for the presence of animals, requests for cradles or extra beds or the use of the washing machine.

No, our apartments do not have air conditioning, they all have thick stone walls that help keep rooms a bit cooler and they are all equipped with fans; the only exception is the apartment Terrazza that does have air conditioning due to its glass walls.

It is possible to add a cradle or a bed in almost every apartment. Additional costs are €8,00 per night for the cradle and €20,00 per night for the bed, flat rates are available for stays of at least one week. However, please make this request at the time of booking or in any case before the check-in date.

Of course, we are pleased to welcome our guests with their pets! Anyway, since their presence requires special care from our side during the cleaning, we ask for an additional cost of €8,00 per night.
Flat rates are available for stays of at least one week.

We do have a washing machine available for guests during the opening hours of the reception. The cost is €4,00 per use (soap of course already included).

Every apartment has its own kitchen equipped with an electric oven and a fridge with freezer; there are also, of course, all the accessories necessary for the preparation and consumption of meals (pots, plates, glasses, crockery) and a courtesy supply of detergent. Instead, there are no food products of any kind and no dishwasher.

It’s not possible to book this kind of solution in our facility as we don’t have a restaurant. However, there are three restaurants within a range of about 500 metres, and others can be found in the town of Palaia, only 3km away.
In addition to the fact that every apartment has its own kitchen and there is a bar near the irregularly shaped swimming pool that sells drinks and ice creams with the same opening hours as the reception.

Our name is due to the ancient property from which we inherit the buildings, appropriately restored respecting their original rustic Tuscan style. Today, however, we do not host animals but, thanks to the hundreds of olive trees on our property, we produce a delicious extra virgin olive oil, which we invite you to try!

Of course! Our staff at the reception will be happy to help you organize visits to museums, tastings, horse, bike or Vespa rides and much more!
