Nice and very friendly hosts! The place is very quite. The apartment is large - separate bedroom and a living room with kitchen in it. It is 5 min by car to citta della Pieve. You will find an almost intact medieval city on the top of the hill there. Lots of restaurants are there. We also took pasta cooking course and had dinner with their family. It was a nice stay.
Cimbolello is a truly beautiful place where we really enjoyed the great garden, the view and the silence. It's close to Citta della Pieve which is a lovely town. The appartement has everything you need and is quite basic. The owners are very friendly people who make you feel at home and keep a welcome distance (if like us, that's what you appreciate). It was great to enjoy the fresh food from the farm.
We stayed with our two year old son for two weeks at Luisa and Francesco. It was a wonderful time. Luisa and Francesco were wonderful. With their warmth, hospitality and great tips for excursions in the area, they have made our holiday an unforgettable experience.
The accommodation is great. Especially for our son the handling of the animals was a great experience. He loved being able to feed chickens and sheep every day and the dogs are very fond of children.
We can recommend the accommodation to anyone who just want to relax and have peace and quiet. Lots of great destinations in Umbria and Tuscany are within a short time.
Thanks for this great holiday!

Ils ont tous deux un vrai esprit de partage. Logement confortable, propre et pratique. Environnement exceptionnel et rustique, la bergerie en campagne. Accueil' spontanéité et hospitalité unique. A conseiller pour les personnes en recherche de vacances à la nature et au calme.
We had a fantastic trip with our two kids ( 2 & 6) at Francesco's organic farm in Umbria situated very close to prime locations in Tuscany, like Montalcino, Montepulciano and Cortona! Even the small village Citta Della Pieve near by surprised us with a few nice restaurants and shops.
At our arrival Francesco and his wife Louisa served us with fresh produce from their farm (freshly harvested salad, garlic and eggs) and took us on a small tour around their farm. Our apartment was well stocked and clean. The surroundings are very child friendly with swings, a sandpit, family dogs, etc.
We would love to come back!
Francesco and Louisa's farm is great. Our room was perfectly equipped and my kids loved the sheep, chickens, and gardens. They are great, hard working people. Don't miss out on cooking with Louisa and eating dinner with them. The whole experience was great! Thanks
Francesco's farm was amazing, the apartment was cozy and perfect for our little family. My daughter loved roaming around the property, visting with the sheep, chickens, and dogs. Luisa and Francesco were incredibly kind and accomModating. We sampled many of the products made on the farm and loved them all, especially the olive oil. On our last night we particiapted in the pasta cooking dinner which was delicious and one of our favorite experiences in Italy! This experience was wonderful and I would highly recommend this rental to anyone looking for a fantastic place to stay in Italy. The surrounding village of Citta della Pieve was amazing as well, fabulous places to eat and a very beautiful hillside town.

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.
