The original nucleus is represented by and ancient tower-house of the XVI century, it has been enlarged with years and in XX century it reached the typical structure of the Tuscan farmhouse , with many constructions situated around the farmyard, the past core of the domestic life. The structure has been completely restored at the begin of 21st century, but respecting and valorising those elements and characteristics that render the Tuscan house unique: big fireplaces, visible beams, the hand made terracotta and the serene stone.

At guests’ disposal both rooms (2 double rooms with private bathroom) and apartments. At the ground floor of the central building there is an apartment composed by living room with cooking corner, bathroom and double room; two apartments on two levels have been obtained within the ancient tobacco warehouse: the first one composed by wide living room with cooking corner, fireplace, wide double room, bathroom and private garden; and the other one composed by two rooms, two bathrooms, day zone with fireplace and private garden. All the apartments are equipped with dishwasher, double sofa bed in the living room, satellite TV, Wi-Fi connection and Internet access.
In the central part of the house there is a wide common area with a small restaurant and a kitchen equipped for “cooking class”. The products used are almost exclusively of own production: from animals (lambs, goats, pigeons, ducks, chickens ) to vegetables, to fruit. In the farmhouse is also possible to buy typical products and taste wine and oil.
The whole offers a wide common area with wood oven, barbecue, swimming pool (16x6 m). Moreover, at guests’ disposal, a ping pong table and a small gym in the ancient granary. An old annex, appropriately restructured, hosts a Jacuzzi (4x1.8 m), coated of sand stone. The water, coming directly from its source, is heated at ideal temperature in order to enjoy relax moments in the calm and colours of the Tuscan countryside.
In the farmhouse you can attend coking lessons, while all around is possible to go riding on mountain bike.
Geographical position and proximity to major communication routes allows easy access to places of historical and artistic interest in Central Italy. The most interesting routes are those that lead from Siena to San Gimignano to the Chianti Tour, or to Assisi and Perugia or to the wine zone of Montepulciano, or to Pienza and Montalcino. In the immediate vicinity it will be rather nice to discover the medieval towns of Lucignano and the Gargonza Castle and the towns of Cortona and Arezzo. Within easy driving distance also the Baths of Rapolano
For those who love sports, only 4 km far there are stables with riding school and 20 km far you have golf and tennis fields.

We can't say enough good things about our hosts Paolo and Gabriella. By far the best and most welcoming hosts. The villa/apt are very comfortable, beautiful small village setting, easy drive to sight seeing places. We started every morning with delicious breakfast and end of the day unwind and had our very best dinners. Don't miss Gabriellas dinner any single night you stay there. We enjoyed chatting with other families and everyone were very welcoming about our two young kids.
We loved to go back there again.
We spent 3 delightful days here in the middle of a busy 2-week trip. After pushing hard through the sites of Florence and Rome, we were happy to spend a whole day by the pool, and the evening at the outdoor dinner table. The hosts are marvelously kind and warm. The food is fantastic and my family enjoyed an afternoon learning to make home-style Italian dishes from the freshest ingredients. The breakfast spread was a picture-perfect collection of home-baked items and a selection of fruits and cheeses.
It's a good location for day trips if you have a car; we went to Assisi one day. There's a horse riding school near by which we used for a beginners lesson. There's much more to see in the area but we were making our way from Rome to Lucca and this was a good middle spot. Delightful dogs if you like pets, lovely grounds. We are a family of 5 and stayed in a large unit, 2 rooms upstairs and one person on a sofa bed downstairs. Full kitchen but we didn't use it.
Two weeks in Italy, including Milan, Florence, Rome, Sienna, Orvieto, Civita di Bagnorregio, Lucca, Monterossa, Vernazza and what do the kids talk about? THE AGRITURISMO. No joke. It was the trip of a lifetime, but the lovely hospitality here was the highlight.
A beautiful property, cozy apartments (in our case La Loggia), warm hosts (Paolo and Gabriela), a perfect environment and a perfect location for exploring both the (southern) Tuscany and Umbria. Ideal for families (in our case, two sons), as there is room for a nice pool next to a wonderful pool, but also ideal for couples or singles looking for recreation. Unanimous tenor of all family members - we will be back.
