This is our second time at Le Spighe we have thoroughly enjoyed our self again and can not speak highly enough of the warm welcome we had and the hospitality throughout our stay. Francesco is a great host and we can only recomend this little piece of paradise that offers a peaceful stay in the country side .
We spent 3 nights in Le Spighe and we will always remember the time we spent there. A great holiday is not only about the places you go but also about the people you meet. La Spighe is special because it is equal measures about the place and about Francesco and his family. Francesco is genuinely warm friendly and caring. He is a true gentleman and a terrific host. The cosy farmhouse is perfect for a peaceful Tuscan holiday from countryside walks down to the river to the daily morning welcome from the two cats. We cannot recommend Le Spighe highly enough and hope to return one day.
The location of the Le Spighe is great and not far from wonderfull places to visit such as lago di Bolsena, Tuscania, Orvieto and many others. If you look at a place where to relax and take a break surronded by the nature this is the place! The apartment was very clean and equipped with all the suff you need to cook. Francesco'wife prepared for us a delicious cake for breakfast, while Francesco suggested us a lot of places to visit and of course where to eat!
Le Spighe is Italien country-life at its best!
The house and surroundings are beautiful. Fields and hills as far as the eye can see. The stonehouse is great. We lived in house number 2 (there are 3 apartments). Great with kids, because of the two bedrooms. What is also great with kids is, that right outside your door is a very big and cozy garden, and a footballfield, where our sons (5 years old) spent a lot of time playing:-).
When we arrived at le Spighe we were welcomed by Francesco and his parents. Nicest people you will ever meet. They are so warm, and made us feel so welcome and relaxed. Francesco is very good at English, which is nice, when you cannot speak Italien. He gave us lots of tips and info about the area and were very helpful.
Francesco and family doesn't live at the grounds, but they are there almost every day, and we had a lot of nice talks with them:-)
From le spighe you can reach a lot of great towns. We went to: Orvieto (recommend going underground, if you have kids), Perugia, Assisi, Montepulciano and the Mamore falls. Assisi and Orvieto being the Highlights. The city close by, Auquapendente, will also grow on you. And just relaxing in the garden is great!
The only thing not great is the pizzeria close by Le Spighe, worst pizza ever. And remember you will have to have a car, since you have to drive to get to town, supermarket etc
Thank you for two great weeks! And all the best wishes for Francesco and his wonderful family:-)
We stayed at Le Spighe for a whole 3 weeks with our family, which included our two young daughters and their grandmothers. It was wonderful! Peaceful, relaxing, and close to an amazing array of beautiful towns, villages, and sites in Lazio, Tuscany, and Umbria. Our favourite adventures were visiting Pitigliano and Orvieto, and swimming in Lago di Bolsena. But most of all we loved coming back to Le Spighe to sit outside and eat our supper and drink delicious Italian wine. Francesco and his father Ilio are hosts par excellence, and we hope to stay in touch. Some practical things: a car is essential and the drive from Florence (and presumably Rome) was long but beautiful. Also there is no wifi, but we enjoyed being disconnected, and visited the coffee shop in the local town (Acuapendente) when we needed to check emails. There are also a number of other rentals on the site so if this one is booked just get in touch with Francesco, there's probably room!
We had such a fantastic holiday at Le Spighe! Couldn't have been more relaxed after our 11 nights. Francesco and his family were so welcoming and helpful. The cottage was very cozy and everything was super clean. Enjoyed having our daily breakfast in this beautiful garden and its great views of the countryside, going to lake Bolsena (20-25 minutes) or the sea (approx. 1h15), walking around the beautiful cute little town of Acquapendente, having great dinners etc.! We're definitely going to be back sometime! And if it was even closer to Germany we would come back all the time! :)
