About The Experience

Observe a working Italian farm firsthand from this apartment in a farmhouse in Tuscany. On a large estate that produces wine, olive oil, visanto, and grappa, this farmhouse accommodation in Tuscany is a real experience in agritourism. You can explore the farm or, alternately, spend your days taking day trips to the many Tuscany locations near this vacation rental: Volterra, Siena, San Gimignano, Florence, and more.

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.

Customer Reviews

Overall:
Fantastic!!! This was our 4th time to return! Loved it and love Claudia, Rudi and Simone!
Enjoyed Most:
The overall tranquility and natural beauty.
Enjoyed Least:
The bed is harder than we spoiled Americans are accustomed to! But "it's okay"!
Surrounding Area:
Everything! Easy access to geoceries, so many hill towns, Chianti, Florence, Siena...
Nearby Events or Locales:
Staggia... Super short distance but I recommend driving due to winding roads and no shoulder
Tips or Restaurants:
Bring outlet adapters and stop at the Pam or Coop in Poggibonsi for basic groceries, coffe, etc. The apartments have basic spices and cooking implements. We love to grill when we are there. Buy charcoal and starter.
Directions:
Easy to find with GPS.
Check In Out:
Easy, easy.... just get with Claudia if you need to check out the night before due to early flight. She is super accommodating.

Overall:
It was wonderful! Yes - we were on our honeymoon - it was still wonderful.
Enjoyed Most:
Hard to pick one thing. We ran on the roads through the grapes fields. Quiet. Claudia and Rudy made us feel welcome.
Enjoyed Least:
Leaving it?
Surrounding Area:
Close to small towns, castles, hiking, etc.
Nearby Events or Locales:
We are runners and hikers, so absolutely for us. Yes. You would need to walk through fields or on the side of a road. May choose to drive if you have a car.
Tips or Restaurants:
We found lots of places, but Claudia will help guide you if you want suggestions. We found things on our own.
Directions:
We used a GPS. We type in the coordinates because the rental car GPS did not find the street address. Easy that way.
Check In Out:
Smooth. Easy.

The location was terrific...far away from everything, but close enough for lots of day trips.
Surrounding Area:
Wonderful wine and beautiful countrysides!
Directions:
Used GPS, got us right there!
