About The Experience

Possibly one of the best ways to enjoy a Tuscany vacation rental in agritourism is this Tuscany apartment. During your farm holiday in Tuscany, you will be surrounded not only by beautiful grounds, but by a large working farm that produces everything the Tuscan region is renowned for: wine, olive oil, visanto, and grappa. This farmhouse accommodation in Tuscany is within an original and carefully restored building—a quiet, peaceful area with great views and an excellent locale for taking day trips throughout Tuscany.

Location Description

Located on one of the larger working farms in this region, this property comes under the Italian category of “agriturismo.” It is situated in a beautiful rural position, but its place between Siena and Florence also makes this a great jumping-off point for day trips throughout Tuscany. The nearest village is Staggia, a beautiful little walled town with a castle overgrown with greenery. Here you'll also find the basics, from food to a post office and a café. Nearby Siena is a treasure trove of medieval architecture and authentic Tuscan culture-- including the famed annual bareback horserace! Other great locales in the region include San Gimignano, Volterra, and Florence.

Exterior Description
(35 Hectares)

This apartment is located on a working farm that produces wine, olive oil, Vinsanto, and grappa, as well as various grain crops. There are also uncultivated areas which, in the spring, are covered with poppies. Picturesque paths through these areas lead to adjacent farms. The original 19th century farmhouse, in which this apartment is located, has been carefully restructured and transformed into six modernized apartments, each with its own entrance. The house is located on a hilltop, affording a panoramic view over the hills of the Chianti district. Surrounding the house is a communal garden and shared swimming pool which is open from late April to mid-October (14m x 7m). There is also a cement tennis court in the center of the farmstead, racquets are provided. A large barbecue and covered dining table are the center of the communal area, along with ping-pong, children's games, a play house, a slide, and a swing. Small individual tables and barbecues are also provided for the convenience of individual families. A selection of mountain bikes is available for use. A large parking area is located in front of the house, and there are shared laundry facilities.
At the completion of the harvest season, a celebration is held, during which all guests are invited to sample the many flavors and products of the land. In the cantina (cellar), run by the head of the family, there is a shop where guests may purchase bottles of wine for their own use. The owner's family occupies a separate unit in the farmhouse building. The family cares for the garden and provides homemade baked pastries as part of the welcome extended to new guests, or in celebration of special events.

Overall:
Very relaxing, peaceful, great hosts.
Enjoyed Most:
Beautiful setting on a very well kept farm.
Enjoyed Least:
WiFi only available in 1 area.
Surrounding Area:
The rolling hills and surrounding farms and vineyards.
Nearby Events or Locales:
Staggia, yes--but not recommended to walk due to the narrow roads.
Tips or Restaurants:
Bring coffee and sugar, the local Coop in Staggia is well-stocked. The steak restaurant in Staggia was very good and their pizza looked much better than the pizza shop by the Coop.
Directions:
We used a Garmin GPS with a European map. The only way we found our way around was by using the GPS and Latitude/Longitude coordinates that were on the properties website. I also used Google maps and copied the coordinates for each place we wanted to visit.
Check In Out:
Very quick.
