Ten ways… Or rather, the only way to choose the right place for your family holidays
It is easy to book a hotel on the Costa degli Etruschi: the Internet will provide you with an endless list of possibilities.
Hundreds and hundreds of places to stay. You will start with a skimming and will finally decide – after many second thoughts – where you will spend your holidays.
What a relief, one less thing to think about!
What if this method does not work?
What if you do not like what other people like?
What if your mother-in-law was right about that hotel? (Oh, it is terrible to admit that she was right)
In short, what if you regret your choice?
THERE IS ONE SINGLE WAY TO AVOID MAKING A MISTAKE
Without google, online reviews, photos, videos, and so on and so forth.
You must absolutely know something about the place where you are going to stay, before to get there.
You will be thinking “That’s easier said, but how am I supposed to do it?”
Very easy, keep on reading!
HERE WE ARE, LET US INTRODUCE OURSELVES
I will not digress about how beautiful the Podere degli Olmi is, here you can find photos, prices, offers and anything you need to know.
(Even if – between ourselves – it is a beautiful place, really!)
The problem is that you do not know anything about us yet, and this is the most important thing: how can you decide where to spend your holiday if you do not know with whom you will spend it?
So let us introduce ourselves, we are a “crazy” family that loves people.
We are crazy because we cannot have fun if we are not a little crazy and we do this job because we have a lot of fun.
Crazy because we put our guests’ wealth first – sometimes to the detriment of the profits.
And crazy because, at the end of the day, we spend that little amount of free time we have chatting with our guests until late. This is what makes us wake up with a smile on our faces the next morning.
LET’S GO TO THE POINT: THE FAMILY TREE
THE BOSS: Marco (also called The Grumpy Guy… Well, the boss cannot be otherwise). In 2004 he opened the Podere degli Olmi with his parents. He was only 23 and he grew up with this place.
THE GRASSHOPPER: Viola (Marco’s wife). Tiny, energetic and chatty, you will see her jumping around from a guest to another, giving clues and pieces of advice.
THE QUEEN MOTHER: Sabina (Marco’s mother). She is the rational component of the family, a war machine in her job, and a busy grandma!
THE KNIGHT: Claudio (our dear friend). Imagine the knight that saves you right when you are about to drop into a rock cliff: Well, Claudio is just like him!
THE LITTLE PEST: Raffaele (Marco and Viola’s child). Born and raised at Podere degli Olmi, diffident and taciturn until he gets friendly with you, in this place he has learned to walk, swim, ride a bike, read, climb trees, and much more.
THE AUNT: Luigia (Marco’s aunt). Same character of Marco and Raffaele, very reserved, you will not see her around very often but she will always be active in the background.
GRANDPA: Luigi. Marco’s over ninety-year old Grandfather, backbone of the family, he collects antique coins and coordinates the olive harvest in October.
OUR FAMILY IS YOURS
In short, if you are looking for a place where you will be welcomed as a member of the family, you have just found it!
Our mission is to make you feel at home even if you are far from home.
Being happy within the family is our priority – both for our family and for the families of our guests.
If you are looking for a resort with baby parking, full board and animation on the beach, well, that is not us!
