    "relaxation in nature"

    08/26/2018

    We spent two weeks really relaxing and quiet, surrounded by nature. Francesco and Hilary the owners really made us feel at home, but not only all the staff, especially Sabina. We arrived after a short journey from the main road, and immediately greeted with great professionalism and sympathy, I almost had the feeling of knowing everyone for a long time. We were in the apartments The Masons, which are not part of the main structure, but still reachable in a few steps. Our apartment was comfortable and clean and nothing was missing (maybe I would have put a hammock or deckchair on the veranda). The pool is clean and above all offers a view of the hills of the Maremma. My children have been riding lessons with Hilary who, besides teaching riding techniques, has transmitted a lot of passion in the care of horses. Even the kitchen, pizzas and above all beer are very good. Of course it is not a place to find "movement" but according to my point of view it is the beauty of San Ottaviano. Here the hills, the animals and the nature dictate the times of the days ..... always new and extraordinary (especially with children). Although in the hills you can quickly reach various places (sea, medieval villages and archaeological sites in about 30 minutes by car). I hope to return to San Ottaviano soon.

    "Taste of Tuscany"

    08/14/2018

    My wife and I stayed at the agriturismo (our first experience in one of these farmstays) this summer and were pleasantly surprised. The farm sits on a hill overlooking fields and a river - much bigger and spacious than in the photos. The architecture is original, beautiful stone masonry with vines and gardens in the surroundings. The owners are very friendly and welcoming. We had the chance to chat with them and learned all about the history of the estate, their work and what it takes to keep the place running! Francesco gave us a tour and a tasting of his craft brewery, which is located right on the property, and we learned that the barley is grown right on the farm. My wife even tried horseback riding with Hilary and her very sweet horses. She said it was a blast. We ate in the restaurant several times and tried the homemade pizzas on pizza night. Everything was very fresh and locally sourced (they have a huge blackboard telling you where everything is from). You definitely need a car to stay here, but the roads are paved and easy to get around. The closest town is very quaint and has some nice restaurants - ask for recommendations. Overall, we had a wonderful time and would definitely recommend San Ottaviano to anyone who wants a taste of the Tuscan countryside!

    "An authentic Tuscan holiday!"

    08/06/2018

    San Ottaviano is the ideal setting to experience a truly relaxing and authentic Italian vacation. If you want easy access to more tourist destinations - Rome, Venice, Milan, Florence - you should stay closer to those places. But if you want to experience the beauty and authenticity of Italian life, San Ottaviano is perfect! The agriturismo originally was a self-contained little village , and if you look around you can still where the different shops, mill and ovens were. The apartments are variable, from studios to 3-bedrooms. As is typical in Italy, there is no air conditioning. Not all of the apartments are heated so if you are concerned about being cold, make sure you ask for heated accommodations. A few small things were missing from our apartment but were readily provided once brought to their attention. There are 2 beautiful pools, a restaurant serving food prepared traditionally Tuscan from local ingredients, and an onsite brewery. This is not a resort setting, but I did not come to Italy to be in a resort, I came to experience the people, food and surroundings of Tuscany. You will need a car to get to the agriturismo.

    We explored miles of trails and picked wild asparagus, communed with the donkeys, the bees and Silvio (the pig!), enjoyed Francesco's birra with pizza prepared in their outdoor oven while overlooking a beautiful landscape, and took a cooking class with Chef Stefano! Florence is easily a day trip, but we wanted to slow down and bask in more local sights and there's plenty to do! The coast is just a half hour or so away. Walking up and down the seaside street in Follonica was fun, and we enjoyed an aperitivo by the water. Campiglia is an iconic hilltop town, quiet and ideal for picture taking; if you go to the top, you have a beautiful view of the sea. We took another wonderful day-trip to Elba, via a ferry from Piombino. Rent a convertible at the dock in Elba, drive around the island, and make sure you time your return ferry to coincide with sunset. Stunning! Bolgheri is a well-known wine region, easily drivable. If you go to the Argentiera winery, ask for a tour of the vineyards; the view from the top of the hill is amazing. There's a geothermic "park" close to the agriturismo. Very interesting, but it may be challenging to walk if you have any mobility issues. San Ottaviano is located to provide an easy side trip to Cinque Terre. I recommend staying at least a night there.

    Hilary and Francesco are wonderful hosts and you really feel like they are sharing their home with you.

    Room without external light, Swimming pool to be restored with wasps following. First dinner of ravioli drowned in water with a little ragù resting on top. Very kind employees. But the owner should refresh the place.

    We're sorry that he did not find what he was looking for on his vacation. I believe, however, that you are the first guest this year with these negative comments, and I sincerely can not agree. The light bulb on your terrace burnt down one night and we could not foresee it. In your opinion, we have replaced it. The light, therefore, was not bad. The last two comments surprised me a lot. Our company, although a working farm, is a well-kept, rustic, but not overlooked place. If I can, I enclose below the photos of the places you mentioned. I also point out to you that your bathroom had been made last year. To mention some of our projects this year I tell you, we have four new stone terraces, a new riding school, 4 new bathrooms, new curtains and beds for all 26 apartments, new aviary, new garden, two new apartments, gardens new, new outdoor tables, new restaurant tables etc. The maintenance of a place like ours is constant in all respects from the gardens, outside the apartments. Being an estate of more than 250 hectares in the countryside, there will be no green lawn on all sides, but it is a structure in continuous movement and we do our best to keep everything as good as possible. For the restaurant, you are the first guests throughout the season to have a negative comment. We are sorry if it was not to your satisfaction. We recommend next time to point out to the waitress if you did not like something. All in all, from your comments, it seems to me that you would have liked much more a holiday in the city instead of the Maremma countryside. I advise you to read carefully where you choose to stay for the next time to make sure that you find all of your satisfaction.

    "Not good deal for horse riding experience and location "

    04/03/2018

    Book it with my family and our 4 year boy to get another nice horse riding experience as else where around the world, horses was the worst I have seen so far , bless them not them fault, and after our worldwide experiences disappointed for this place, be careful when you book off season, we get frozen the first night with no heating and we have been charged in the end off the stay the same amount for our 4 year old as for adults, even we all hardly eat as we get stomach virus, out off season there don't even keep the bar open if you want some refreshment , means you are on your own in the middle of nowhere,
    so be careful , not good custurmer service at all , but we had lovely time in Folonica , for sure will be back in Toscany , happy hollidays to all

    Good morning Lenka, I am very sorry to read these words, so different from the comments received in person! At the end of the lesson and horseback ride (which at the end did only her, despite a reservation for two people canceled 20 minutes after the appointment time and still not charged - even if you signed a contract for this reason) I instead he thanked a lot, underlining how pleasant it was to regain confidence with the horse! Here in San Ottaviano the passion for horses is authentic and both the animals and the school are kept with extreme care. The same applies to restaurant charges: days before your arrival, together with the contract you received the menu with prices, regulations and costs of the various activities. You were therefore aware of all the rates, both for adults and for children. Meals were booked before arrival, then canceled and rebooked ... we were available and flexible throughout our stay. I'm afraid that the bad mood is not due to the aspects described in the comment, but to the charge of the last night: you decided to leave at 19 instead of the next morning. As with many other farms, our policy (clearly indicated in the contract that you have signed) is not to reimburse the departures in advance ... In this case then, even if you want to make an exception, you still stopped all day. I doubt that the comment is due to this, because even the rest of the notes that you move your review leaves us stunned: when you asked to drink a beer at the bar our availability was total and the bar open. If I remember correctly you have thought about it because you preferred a more lively place ... well, on this you REASON: OUR IS AN AGRITURISMO AND AS SUCH THE CAMPAIGN AND THE TRANQUILITY MAKE BY PADRONI! We consider it a strong point of our company, also considering that the road to reach it is paved and the country is 15 minutes by car: isolated, therefore, but not too much. I have always thought (and I still think) that all guests have the right to tell their experience, possibly keeping to the facts. Your words have deeply disturbed us, because we try so hard to make our guests feel good and we have tried to really meet you as much as possible: we are sorry you did not notice it.

    "Super nice week!"

    07/30/2017

    We had a wonderful week at San Ottaviano. There is "trigger" in the B-note, as perhaps a few more kitchen utensils such as rubbish bags, sponge for spiking, spüli etc. would have helped. All of this we have worried ourselves. These are really little things. Everything else was great! (Rating for restaurant we could not really give, since we only the Pizzatag [from the wood stove] used)

    "Fantastic stay in a beautiful atmosphere"

    10/18/2016

    After extremely friendly welcome by Francesco and his team we enjoyed the days in beautiful nature and lovely setting on San Ottaviano very. Thanks to the great excursions and help by example calls to the regional wineries we could make great trips despite the changeable weather. A special highlight is the cozy breakfast and the occasional dinner in the historic atmosphere with great local dishes and home-brewed beer. We will be back, thank you.

    "Pure relaxation"

    10/09/2016

    We, a family with a toddler and dog spent in San Ottaviano 2 wonderful weeks. Our accommodation was very spacious and clean. The location idyllic and quiet One can safely be great to be a child on the grounds around and there were other holiday children who were for the time to Playmates Everyone was very warm and helpful, the beer was delicious and the wine, and of course also our dog was a welcome guest you had a choice between just relaxing by the pool or relax at one of the numerous beaches that could be easily reached in 1/2 hour drive. The surrounding mountain villages were also always worth a visit The shops were within easy reach. Round we recovered very well, made us all feel very welcome and found the surroundings beautiful Conclusion: we'll be back in 2017

    "Beautiful structure but too out of hand"

    06/06/2016

    I booked the hotel because enticed by the photos. everything seemed in order and almost new as well as later proved to be the structure. But it is not easy to move from there to the Tuscan villages, it is away from any reference, at least 20 km. the most viable are 3.5 kilometers after the road to the farm is no guardrail on a mountain and a few kilometers become a lot in terms of time. breakfast is made to the main building so we had to go by car because the road was uphill all the way. poor breakfast: that sweet were a donut, a cake, sandwich bread and rusks, only orange juice. in the house there was no microwave or TV, there was no where to hang the towels in the bathroom, there are no shutters so in the morning light filters through the curtains. hot water boiler, then after my shower remained a little water and warm. Soap only in one of two baths, two rolls of toilet paper (one per bath), for 4 days of stay. Wifi, with a weak signal, just outside the house that you just disconnects the phone was on standby. No sign of my telephone operator. we paid 83EUR per night for two, maybe a bit 'too much respect to the services offered and respect to those who are my taste, probably my mistake not to inform me more about the property's location. Francesca very kind reception.

    "Have a nice week at the farm"

    10/05/2015

    We were end of September for a week in San Ottaviano and enjoyed it very much, the level of comfort is simple, but was chosen by us aware there is no TV, but a TV lounge. The kitchen has everything you need. The restaurant offers delicious Tuscan cuisine. The farm has a swimming pool, picnic areas and a playground. There is an on-site brewery, which can be visited and of course you can also taste and buy the beer! In the morning we enjoyed the great Cafe for breakfast. The access via a bridge is a little odd, but harmless. We have made from there wonderful excursions in the area. The atmosphere is welcoming and warm, and we thank Francesca Francsco for valuable tips and wish the entire team all the best! We will definitely be back! Sabine and Dirk

    "wonderful relaxed week at San Ottaviano"

    09/30/2015

    San Ottaviano not only met all our expectations but offered us even more in the end. The atmosphere is perfect to spend a relaxing time and close enough to enjoy many different parts of this side of Tuscany. The restaurant is excellent with a friendly staff that was ready to make sure we always had a great meal. The cabin we were given had everything we would need to almost feel like we were at home, especially the kitchen which had everything we needed to cook even the most complex meal. Francesca and Francesco were very nice and were always there to help us when we needed it, Francesco even offered a tour of his brewery which I found very informative. All in all is a great place specially if you visit with a dog, our Darwin had the best time as well.
