The Space

Podere Asciana is a beautifully restored farmhouse comprising three furnished apartments and a beautiful swimming pool.

Set in the beautiful hills of Chianti, near Arezzo, Podere Asciana is surrounded by vineyards and olive groves. It is an oasis of tranquillity, yet close enough to major cities and small towns to be used as a base from which to explore central Italy’s cultural treasures.
We offer facilities for ping pong and barbeques. There is even a pond for fishing.

Siena is 30 km distance, Florence a little less than an hour and Rome is two hours away by car.
In the Valdambra area immediately surrounding Podere Asciana are the many interesting castles and towns to Ambra, Montevarchi, Capannole, Badia A Ruoti, Montebenichi and Cennina. Nearby are the thermal spas of Chianciano, Bagno Vignoni, Rapolano and Saturnia.
A bit further are the beautiful small towns of San Gimignano, Montereggioni, Montalcino, Pienza, and Abbadia di Monte Oliveto.

Not far away are outlet shops of the best brands: buy Prada, Gucci, Tods, Yves Saint Laurent, Giorgio Armani, Ferragamo, Bottega Veneta, Dolce e Gabbana and more, at reduced prices.

We will be pleased to provide more information about nearby activities, in addition to train times and maps to make your stay as pleasant as possible.

  • Fantastic!!

  • We have just come back from the Tuscan Farmhouse in Bucine. We will definitely be going back! Firstly it is an ideal situation: close to the A1 but only 20 miles from Siena and 40 from Florence. Alfiero and his charming family, could not have been more accommodating. We were luckily the only guests so we got the peace and quiet my wife and I wanted, but Alfiero was always on hand: whether it was to give his restaurant recommendations, give us a bottle of his home made wine or opening the pool a week early. The apartment we had was exactly as described and perfectly adequate. A real find and highly recommended.

  • The cottages have been wonderfully restored, are very comfortable and are in a lovely tranquil location. Great place to spend a few days relaxing. There are a number of very attractive towns nearby including Sienna and Pienza. Alfiero was a wonderful host with helpful advice on what to do and see.

  • The setting of this agriturismo is outstanding. Every evening was a most pleasant private wine and cheese party, gazing over the pool and the scenery beyond, listening to the sounds of Tuscany. What a cozy and warm feeling. We always looked forward to returning to it when our day of exploring the hill towns in the area was over.

    We shared a few laughs with Alfiero, who is a gregarious, informative, and generous host. He presented us with a bottle of wine and some fig jam that he produced on the property. Good stuff.

    He knows when to leave you alone and when to help. He also keeps an immaculate pool
    .
    Do not miss this experience. It will be one that you will relive for years to come. You will surely make it a point to return to this paradise.

  • Great place to stay! so relaxing and peaceful and beautiful. Loved it! We had five days here and spent half the time relaxing by the pool. We used it as a base to explore the surrounding area. Alfiero was very helpful with giving us information.
    The place was very clean.

  • Alfiero's Tuscan farmhouse was phenomenal. The only thing better was his service. Lovely guy that was always happy to offer suggestions or assistance. Very easy going and even left us with a bottle of local wine as a welcome gift. The house is about a half hour drive from Arezzo or Siena, and around an hour to Greve in Chianti which was a great spot to organise wine tours or day trips from. There was no tv or air conditioning which helped complete the farm experience. Thanks Alfiero you helped make our honeymoon awesome

  • We had a wonderful stay at this place. Friendly people and very helpful. The house was clean and practical, very close by the pool. The rooms were very comfortable. A common terras where there was WI-FI and a hammock provided that we could enjoy the view and quite. We thank Alfiero and his family for the hospitality.

  • We had a perfect stay in Bucine! The kids loved the very big swimming pool, while we could enjoy the view of the surroundings from our terrace. The house is not zo big, but just perfect. Alfiero is a very kind and helpfull host. We will certainly go back again!

  • Fantastic setting, excellent authentic accommodation and a welcoming and friendly host.

    We stayed for 5 nights using our one bedroom villa as a base for exploring Tuscany. Siena is only 35mins away by car so the location was ideal, although the drive to chianti is perhaps a little lengthy if you want to spend less time in the car.

    We highly recommend staying in Alfiero's Bucine farmhouse. It fit the bill perfectly for what we were looking for.

About
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. Amo cucinare usando i rudimenti della cultura italiana e internazionale arricchita poi dai prodotti che coltivo. Mi piace viaggiare e per me è il modo più bello per espandere il proprio stile di vita, rispettando tutte le culture, perché ognuna di essa è unica nella propria diversità.
