Francesco met us in town and we followed him back down a dirt road to his nice farm. The apartment was smaller than it looks in the pictures, and very basic in furnishings. There are large fig trees right next to the apartment and both green and brown figs were delicious! The rooster let us know each morning that it was 4:30 and the dogs kept us safe at night and provided comic relief at times. Louisa graciously shared her tomatoes and jam with us.
Cimbolello was the quiet peaceful sanctuary we had hoped for; and awaking each day surrounded by its lush landscape, where the most industrious sounds jangled from the bells around the sheeps neck, was a pure delight and privilege. Francesco & Luisa were the perfect hosts throughout and we very strongly recommend a visit to their agricultural haven.
The time we have spent at Cimbolello was the most relaxing time we ever had. This lovely organic farm is run by extremely nice and helpful family who does everything with real passion and engagement. Delicious food, stunning nature, adorable animals and above all great hosts make this place an ideal image of italian countryside. Besides, Francesco and Luisa makes their own amazing products (pecorino, jams and olive oil are more than fantastic!!!) and organizes tagiatelle workshops followed by cozy family dinner which we really enjoyed. Worth to mention is also great location since Farm is placed near charming small city Città della Pieve. Location of Cimbolello gives also great opportunity to explore beautiful parts of Umbria as well as Tuscany. Its been a beautiful time and we definitelly see each other coming back to Cimbolello!

Very charming farm. Cozy apartment. Exceptionally quit and nice place. Francesco and Luisa are keen on sharing some moments with you if you want to know more about the farm or have a little chat. Città della Peive Is a nice place to visit. Don't miss the free hot pool baths of the close village San Casciano.
Pragtfuldt ophold i rolige og charmerende omgivelser. Fransesco og Luisa er fantastiske værter - hjælpsomme og afslappede. Boligen er enormt hyggelig, rustik og ren, og rummer alle nødvendigheder. Selv under en varm italiensk sommer var værelserne kølige og behagelige. De bedste anbefalinger og et stort personligt ønske om en (email hidden) denne perle igen!
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.

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.
