Interaction with Guests
We like people and share in a genuine way involving people in our daily activities in the farm, so our guests are welcome to participate and enjoy us in a natural and authentic atmosphere
Practically no houses around…the property is in the middle of nature and the few neighbors are quiet and calm, nice people, most of them foreigners respectful with nature and the beauty of the place
You need a car to get the closer town, Castel del Piano or Seggiano, around 3 km far from the house or if possible also go by bicycle or by walk if you like to do some sport
Other Things to Note
Our website if you want to visit:
We also rent a double room in a beautiful wood house next to the principal house, independent with a private bathroom
And also a nice tipi of 5 meters of diameter situated in the heart of the chestnuts forest where two people can stay and have a real experience in nature
We don't smoke, so if you smoke we prefer if you do outside not in the house
We stayed in the stone cottage which is next to the wooden house with another couple, Whitney and Darren who rent there more permanently. They were very kind and helpful and added to our experience. We originally had booked the place for 9 nights but decided to stay 12 as it was a truly great place. Luisa made us feel welcome from the beginning and was a great host. The place is beautiful with everything you need. Close enough to shops to get groceries or eat out but far away enough that you feel like your part of nature. Close to the river for a swim or sit and relax in the chestnut forest on the property for a relaxing picnic- it's amazing and you will not regret staying here.
Consiglio caldamente di soggiornare almeno una notte nell'incantevole casa di Luisa. Un bosco di castagni e imponenti rocce di basalto fanno da cornice ad una location unica per colori e natura. Luisa è una donna accogliente e socievole che ha scelto di condividere cultura e passioni con i suoi ospiti. Personalmente abbiamo soggiornato nella casa di legno, calda e accogliente, sarà una sorpresa per i visitatori con dettagli in legno e profumo di bosco.
non esitate e lasciatevi trasportare da una vacanza al centro della Toscana più inedita.
Luisa is a dream of a host. As we arrived by bus, she offered to pick us up in Castel del Piano, and immediately we felt welcome as on visiting friends. She is a very cordial, open, helpful and flexible host who perfectly manages the line of interaction that you need - with great level of attention but absolutely no forced interaction.
I would dare to say that the place is even more beautiful than in the pictures. The valley location in Spring is very calm and natural and invites for walks or explorations of the nearby villages.
The property is very well equipped even with a dish-washer and a gas-stove, the kitchen has everything so you can start right away, the wood house is full of light facing south. The small, sunny terrace invited us often to read or contemplate over the view of the valley and the surrounding hills. Luisa's two dogs and cats instantly became our friends - following our invite to stay around the house.
Attention to detail (e.g. flowers on the table) and a great choice in quality utensils made us feel at home and sorry to leave.
Luisa is a warm, welcoming host- genuine, kind and so willing to help and make sure our stay was perfect. The location is quite simply idyllic and exquisite- utterly peaceful. Luisa's lodge is beautiful inside with interesting little curiosities to see and lovingly restored. We could not have asked for a better place to stay on our return to an area we love. Thank you, Luisa.
This is an exquisite house in the beautiful Tuscan countryside. It is elegantly and tastefully renovated. Chestnuts, olive trees, stars, silence, excellent wood stoves, and nearby thermal baths are some of the many attractions. Luisa is an incredible host. She is very attentive and accommodating and her lifestyle inspiring.
Notre hôtesse est venu nous chercher sur la route principale pour nous guider vers sa maison, difficile à trouver dans les oliveraies et châtaigneraies, surtout si on n'a pas de GPS pour géolocaliser.
Ce que nous avons trouvé fut mieux de ce que nous attendions. Le lieu est enchanteur et il vaudrait la peine de le vendre mieux, à condition de préciser que c'est pour des amateurs de nature pure et sauvage. Et que c'est difficile d'accès.
Upon meeting Luisa, we knew that we were in for a lovely stay! Her graciousness and enthusiasm were very apparent throughout our visit.
We arrived outside of Seggiano and Luisa very kindly met us on the road to guide us down the hill to her beautiful farm. She gave us a quick tour of the accommodations, which included a very comfortable bedroom, a fully functioning kitchen, washroom, and laundry machine (plus WiFi).
Upon the recommendations of Luisa, we visited the hot springs at San Fillipe as well as a restaurant in the nearby town of Castel del Piano - all great recommendations!
My wife and I were very comfortable and relaxed for our entire stay with Luisa. If you're looking for a tranquil getaway - this is the spot for sure.
We truly look forward to visiting Luisa, Manuela, Candela, Romeo, and Juliet again soon! A big thanks for your amazing hospitality.
