We spent several days in this farm chosen as a base for visiting the nearby places. Upon our arrival we were greeted with friendliness and helpfulness us and our bassetthound by Paola and Bruno. We stayed in a clean and cozy apartment. In a room with a large fireplace that was also used to cook excellent second courses we were served breakfasts with good jams prepared by Mrs. Paola and tasty dinners always different based on local specialties and products from their garden. We recommend it to those who love peace and quiet and good food.

Nidodelfalcone was the perfect spot for a few days exploring all the surrounding areas. Bruno was a fantastic host, looking after us and going out of his way to do a cooking class with us whilst it was the Agriturismo's down time. The apartment has everything you needed to do some cooking and relaxing after driving around exploring during the day. The lovely tips Bruno gave us for our drive to Siena were an added Bonus. Looking forward to visiting again in the warmer months! Thanks for having us.
From the first moment we climbed the small gravel road leading to the house we experienced a well maintained and welcoming environment. Bruno cares about the visitors and puts a great effort in making both adults and children feel good. His passion for organic farming and classic horseriding only made it even better. The appartment was set looking to the west and Umbrian fall was kind this year.
