My wife and I stayed at Alfiero's agriturismo in late September 2013. He and his family were absolutely wonderful! Upon arrival, we were greeted with a bottle of Alfiero's homemade wine . Throughout our stay he supplied us with many of his delicious, home grown tomatoes and figs. We stayed on one side of the converted barn , which was clean, bright, and very comfortable. The kitchen /living area was well equipped which enabled us to cook some meals using the local produce. The salt water pool was fantastic, It was very clean and well maintained. The location of the farm was very convenient. We rented a car and followed Alfiero’s suggestions as to day trips to places like Siena, Montepulciano, and Pienza.
Alfiero is an amazing host, very friendly, kind and helpful but never intrusive. He recommended a local restaurant that showcased local cusine such as wild boar. The food was excellent and their home made wine marvelous. All were very reasonably priced. He also recommended a local pizza place that was great. Without Alfiero’s guidance we would not have known that these authentic Tuscan experiences even exisited.
Our stay at the Tuscan farmhouse was without a doubt the highlight of our three week trip to trip through Italy. It is a beautiful property maintained by wonderful people and we would not hesitate to stay with them again! When you stay at Alfiero’s agriturism you get both privacy and to be part of a generous, accommodating Italian family. Thank you again Alfiero, Ana Claudia and Annalisa.
Very nice surroundings in the middle of Tuscan hills, only 35 km from Siena! Our farmhouse was quite basic, but very clean. Kind owner who welcomed us with home made wine and delicious tomatoes!
My husband and I stayed at Alfiero's agriturismo in early September 2013. He and his family were absolutely wonderful! Upon arrival, we were greeted with a plate of fresh-picked figs and a bottle of Alfiero's homemade wine. We stayed in the left side of the duplex home, which was clean, bright, and comfortable. We rented a car and made day trips to Siena, Montepulciano, Pienza and Montalicino from here and found the location quite convenient.
We also happened to be staying with them over the weekend that Alfiero's aunt and uncle were visiting. They were celebrating their anniversary with friends and family that Saturday night and insisted that we join the party; and we are so happy we did! An amazing homemade Tuscan dinner, great conversation and lots of laughs, all on a patio overlooking their vineyard, made for an experience we will never forget!
Our stay at the Branchis' Tuscan farmhouse was without a doubt the highlight of our 11 day trip through Italy. It is a beautiful property maintained by wonderful people and we would not hesitate to stay with them again!
Thank you again, Alfiero and family!
Tuvimos una estancia perfecta en casa de Alfiero y Ana Claudia, el lugar es una maravilla perfectamente ubicado para realizar visitas a la Toscana.
La casa esta muy bien equipada,con todo lo necesario para cocinar y relajarte, la piscina una gozada para refrescarse después del día . Estuvimos una semana de vacaciones y el sitio es totalmente recomendable. Alfiero muy atento siempre con recomendaciones y pendiente de que no nos faltara de nada, nos regalo una botella de vino de su cosecha, muy bueno. GRACIAS Alfiero y Claudia, lo recomendaremos.
We had an amazing stay in Bucine at the Tuscan farmhouse.
We are a family of 4 from Seattle, WA with 2 kids - 8 and 4. We stayed for 5 nights in July. We don't speak Italian and this was our first visit to Italy - but we found our stay homely and comfortable.
We visited Arezzo, San Geminiano, Pisa and Siena during our stay - Bucine is centrally located and if you like driving around in winding Tuscan country roads, this is the place !
Alfiero and his family are gracious hosts and he welcomed us with a bottle of wine. He was very helpful in making our stay comfortable. We took his advice and visited a local restaurant "The Hunter" - which was a memorable experience. Excellent, yet simple food with great wine.
We also went on a Bucine historical tour organized by a local voluntary group based on recommendations by Alfiero and his wife. The tour took us to local attractions and after the tour we were invited to take part in a "local food tasting event" at the town square. It was one of the most memorable events of our stay - it turned out to be a village banquet with food, wine and lots of banter with locals. Everyone treated us like their guests and the kids made a lot of friends.
We have happy memories of our stay at the Tuscan farmhouse and won't hesitate to stay there again.
Absolutely loved staying over - the place was adorable, short distance to everywhere, pool was well kept and we had lots of privacy (but also a very helpful host whenever needed). The kitchen utensils were great and we even got some home-made wine from Alfiero.
We had the best time at Alfiero's apartment in Tuscany! It is a beautiful property. Alfiero and his family could not have been nicer... They were so welcoming and helpful. We enjoyed meeting the family as much as we enjoyed staying in their lovely apartment. Alfiero makes AMAZING wine and was kind enough to give us a bottle. We liked it so much we bought some from him. I can not recommend this place highly enough! It was such a peaceful and relaxing place to be. We were even lucky enough to see fireflies flying through the vineyard and olive trees the last night we were there! So magical!!!! If we have the opportunity to come to Italy again, we will definitely be staying here! Alfiero and his family are welcome to visit us in California anytime as well! They are a wonderful family and we hope to see them again someday :) thank you for such a pleasant stay!
This farmhouse was great. We had a nice time in Bucine. It's very quiet and beautiful. The farm is situated in a valley, surrounded with mountains. Alfiero is very sympatic and also a good host. He takes all the time to inform his guests about the beautiful things to do. Like a visit to Siena. By train to Florence and even a visit to the sea. Alfiero, you can ask him everything. The first day it rained, Alfiero suggested a visit to the therme, very nice and relaxing.
We absolutely can recommend the place Alfiero, thank you .and also thanks for the bottle of very good , selfmade wine!
Ciao! Erzsike and Mark
We had a great stay at Alfieros Farmhouse. It is a very nice appartment with a great terasse and an amazing pool. The pool is tall enough to do proper swimming and all is very clean. The location is ideal to do trips to all important points in Toscana. Alfiero and his Family are graet hosts, very friendly and helpfull. I would have loved to stayed longer.
We had 4 wonderful nights in this fantastic Tuscan farmhouse on Alfiero's stunning 'Podere' (Estate). We had the place all to ourselves with gorgeous pool and views. The apartment and grounds were all really well maintained and Alfiero and his family made us feel very welcome with their local wine and hospitality. Would love to have stayed longer!
