High up in the Tuscan Hills, in the picture perfect surroundings of olive groves and idyllic farmhouse chic is Podere Conti.
With dreams of relaxation and great food, my partner and I, with our 4 year old boy headed into the hills to meet Cornelia (we went as guests of Podere Conti). Instantly charming and engaging, Cornelia makes you feel like you have arrived home. Only home has a 2 metre wide bed, with balcony views of the kind of Italian landscape you cannot help but fall in love with. Usually, holidays with kids can be tricky, but with 5 boys of her own, you could tell this was somewhere where families were welcome and we were instantly put at ease.
We stayed in the large, one-bed apartment with kitchen/sitting room. There was ample space in our bedroom to sleep one or two extra people, but we chose to put our son on the large and very comfortable sofa bed in the sitting room. The kitchen had everything one might need for cooking
