Wow. How to put into words the amazing experience we had with Alfiero and his family. Location - spectacular scenery in Tuscany but close to towns and all you will need. Apartment - rustic, clean, authentically Tuscan. Booking and information - Alfiero was so helpful and responsive win advice and assistance and provided a wine tour experience close by for us. Alfiero and family - beautiful people who made our stay so special by including us in some traditional activity which made our stay so memorable. I would recommend staying here and will be back one day to stay again and relax in the beautiful surroundings.
We had a lovely relaxing time at Alfiero and Anna-Claudia's place in Tuscany. It was clean and spacious with spectacular views across their olives trees and grapevines up to the hills. The pool was divine and the kids loved swimming and playing ping pong. We enjoyed Alfiero's wine and some produce from the farm and he gave us some local tips. It was a great place to explore Siena and Florence. Would have loved to have stayed longer.
Siamo rimasti veramente molto colpiti da questo agriturismo perché è silenzioso, immerso nella natura ma a due passi da tutto. La famiglia che gestisce l'intero casolare è presente, mai invadente, molto disponibile e divertente! Vorrei sottolineare che la casa ha tutto quello di cui si ha bisogno per cucinare e ci ha particolarmente colpito la pulizia e lo stato della biancheria che abbiamo trovato nella casa al nostro arrivo: molto meglio che in tanti alberghi nei quali siamo stati! Alfiero ci ha permesso di mangiare i fichi maturi del suo albergo, raccogliere nocciole e girare per la tenuta dopo aver usufruito della bellissima piscina e del tavolo da ping pong. Non possiamo che consigliarvi questo meraviglioso agriturismo e questa stupenda regione!
We had a fabulous time. The villa was beautiful and well equipped with amazing views. The pool was huge and we had it to ourselves most of the time. The host was friendly and helpful without being intrusive. Great location, out of the way but a quick drive to local towns.
We had a great time in Alfiero's apartment. It was very clean, all things needed were there and we felt very welcome and comfortable. Our kids loved the pool, table tennis and most of all to play with their cute 3-year old Anna-Elisa. It is a quiet area, 35 km drive to Siena and 70 to Florence.
Alfiero was there to welcome us even though we arrived quite late. The apartment was exactly what we expected, or even better. We cooked there almost every day and we found all the necessary equipment from the kitchen. The pool was very nice and clean. The area is really calm and peaceful, but you can reach other places with car. Alfiero gave us suggestion about the places to visit. All the five of us would have wanted stay longer, it was a true paradise! I really hope to come back some day. I suggest you to try Alfiero's wine, it was really good :)
We had a wonderful stay at Alfieros place. The apartment was very clean and spacious, the pool was perfect with a very peaceful wiew. The location of the apartment makes it possible to visit a lot of nice places, like Chianti, Florence and Sienna. All together Alfiero and his family are wonderful hosts who also can give perfect advices when it comes to daytrips and restaurants; and they make their own wine! If you're thinking about going to Tuscany we can really recomend this place; even with three kids we had a great experience and will most definetely go back.

Sono sposato e abbiamo una bambina, lavoro come coltivatore.
Amo la natura e il rispetto verso essa, mi piace la fotografia, leggere libri, fumetti e la storia.
