Francesco gave us helpful information about our options to get to the township (train, car etc) We kept in touch about our arrival time and were met at a clearly arranged place to be shown the way to their farm which could otherwise have been difficult to find. A delightful spot and we were really refreshed. The various places to sit outside was super.
We loved our stay at Cimbolello . The stone house we stayed in kept lovely and cool during a hot spell in tuscany. Francesco and Luisa are extremely inspiring and we only wish we could have stayed longer to learn more about their sustainable lifestyle.
Unfortunately missed out on the tagliatelle course - we were very much looking forward to it.
Nous avons séjourné quelques jours à la fin de notre périple en Italie. Les hôtes très sympathiques nous ont offert un logement propre et parfaitement fonctionnel. Ceux qui recherchent un peu plus de luxe ne seront pas nécessairement à l'aise dans cette maison de campagne rustique.
L'endroit ne peut pas être plus tranquille et le village de Città dela Pieve s'est avéré un petit joyau.
This felt like home away from home. The location is absolutely out of this world and Francesco and Luisa were wonderful hosts. We highly recommend this place for anyone interested in driving through Tuscany. We visited their place with my wife and our 9 year old. This place is a paradise for couples, family or groups. The eggs and special treats along the way, the garden and places to explore, the view as you open your door each morning, the tagliatelle lesson followed by the dinner and fun company, haven't laugh so hard in years. Francesco and Luisa make their own wine, cheese, honey, lavender products, fruit gems and so much more. The wine was incredible! Thank you guys! We will always remember the days spent at your place. and yes, we will be back!
Our host Franceso met us at the hospital in town and escorted us back to the farm where the apartment was located. Francesco and his wife Luisa gave us such a warm greeting when we arrived. They gave us a map of Citta della Pieve with important places , such as parking and supermarkets. They had a basket of fresh eggs on the kitchen along with a jar of homemade fig jam. We felt so at home. The accommodations were amazing!! The cottage looks like it is from a Vermeer painting...so charming. We LOVED it!!! We loved that it was located just outside of city center but just a 5 minute drive. Our stay was very enjoyable. Citta della Pieve is a beautiful city.
Leccio Apartment was a perfectly comfortable escape and respite from traveling. The one bedroom is a rustic, cozy, and peaceful apartment in the middle of a beautiful farm. I enjoyed waking up in the countyside. Luisa and Francesco are inspiring people and accommodating hosts. They generously welcomed me and my family and shared their vision of life and farming. It’s a special place indeed.
My wife and I stayed at Cimbolello during our honeymoon. We cannot recommend it enough. Luisa and Francesco are incredibly warm and generous hosts. They left eggs and fig jam for us and invited us to use the lettuce in the beautiful organic garden for our dinner. It was my wife's birthday while we were there, which Luisa noticed (without saying anything) from reviewing her passport at check-in. On her birthday, Luisa gave her a bottle of her lavender essential oil, that she makes from lavender on the farm!
As others have noted, staying with Luisa and Francesco was incredibly inspiring. The ecosystem and lifestyle that Luisa and Francesco have cultivated, and so generously extend to travelers like us, felt as close to perfect as you can get.
Thank you Luisa and Francesco for such a wonderful stay. We hope to return!

L’importanza e l’orgoglio di allevare animali, di potare, concimare, raccogliere, trasformare i nostri prodotti sia vegetali che di origine animale ci danno una varietà continua di lavori, interessi,stimoli, scambi d’informazione e di intuizioni.
