There is a big problem with Le Spighe - You don't want to leave it!
Our cottage was all we could have wished for - cozy, sweet, very clean, fully equipped, full of love and attention - a true delight.
Moreover, it was the pure tranquility of Le Spighe that made it so captivating. Sitting outside, soaking in the lush green fields, the picture-perfect scenery of the surrounding hills, the bird-chirping, the vivid blossoms... I didn't want to tour the area - all I wanted was to sit outside and draw and feel.
Francesco and his family are beautiful people - sincere, nice, thoughtful, interesting, and it is their attention and effort which makes the place such a gem.
I could go on and on with the superlatives and it will still not do the place justice.
Very highly recommended!
After staying in Rome, Venice and Florence, my sister and I (aged in our 60’s) wanted to spend some time in the countryside. We spent 3 days at one of the lovely old stone houses (I think it was No. 1 San Giustino) on the farm Le Spighe, looking over brilliant green fields, past the vineyard to the hills crowned with small villages and castles. Le Spighe is I think technically in the Lazio region however it is also very close to Tuscany and Umbria. In short drives around the area, we sometimes visited all 3 regions in one day. If you were staying longer, Le Spighe would be a great base for exploring. Orvieto is only about 30 km. away. As it was March and low season, we had the unusual privilege of being the only guests. We stayed in the house furthest away from the main road, and it was very peaceful. The garden is beautifully kept, and home to a number of friendly cats (fed by Francesco and his parents). The cottage was very comfortable with two good-size bedrooms looking over the fields, living area with couch and dining table, a well-equipped kitchen and bathroom with small shower. Francesco and his parents were so thoughtful – fresh milk in the refrigerator, condiments, oil and coffee, and other essentials. We bought good local bread and cheese at the trattoria/pizzeria at Proceno (about 15 minutes drive), otherwise you need to go to Acquapendente for supplies where there is a supermarket. Acquapendente is an attractive old town with a basilica, and is a key place on the Francigena Way which winds through this area. Le Spighe is also a short drive from Monte Rufeno Natural Reserve. As it was low season, much of the reserve was closed and deserted. We had an enjoyable walk through the forest and even saw some deer. We visited the charming village of Proceno and also drove to the large and spectacular Lago di Bolsena. Francesco is a wonderful host; although we were late, he and his father Ilio were there to greet us. His mother Ivana arrived later bearing a tart, and we were given a bottle of their own wine. He, his wife and his parents live in Acquapendente and come to Le Spighe to run the farm which they have owned for many years. Francesco is a most engaging person, with a great curiosity about the world. He was most willing to assist with our rudimentary Italian, and has a very good command of English. Francesco gave us a map of Aquapendente and surrounds with useful information. Unfortunately 2 of his recommended restaurants (including La Parolina) were closed on the Monday when we visited, however we had two excellent meals at the Trattoria al Pugnalone in Acquapendente. We also had a pizza from the pizzeria about 5 minutes up the road from Le Spighe. We would thoroughly recommend a stay here, and it would be even more beautiful in summer. Francesco even...
We spent 10 wonderful days at Le Spighe. Francesco was there to greet us, with beautiful home- made gifts and heaps of information on the area. We stayed in the stand- alone cottage and it had everything we needed..... especially heating as it became very cold. We spent days driving through the stunning countryside of Tuscany and Umbria, visting all the villages. Le Spighe is so central. The local town has supermarkets, so you are able to prepare meals in the cottages. There is also an internet cafe. Francesco and his family are so warm and generous and nothing was too much trouble. We highly recommend Le Spighe......perfect!
Francesco is the ultimate host; going out of his way to accomodate our needs. My husband loves Italian cooking so I asked if there was a cooking class nearby. He made reservations for us at La Parolina Ristorante with chef di Iside Romano. The whole experience was fantastic! Highly recommend it!
The cottage is located in a beautiful, yet secluded Tuscan valley with panoramic views in all directions. The cottage is fully equipped with everything you may need. Francesco's mother baked us a delicious pie and we were given a great bottle of homemade Chardonnay. We felt like family and will definitely be back.
Must say "absolutely fabulous", we used Le Spighe as home base upon leaving Rome. From there we made many road trips to both surrounding towns and hamlets as well as Florence. It was wonderful to return to our quiet abode after the intensity of the cities. Francesco and family were wonderful hosts and gave many tips about the area which made us appreciate our stay all the more.
We even had a flat tire and Francesco brought me to a repair shop and helped with the necessary arrangements. The facilities are neat and clean and well situated on a well loved farm. Although at the end of gardening season, we were able to find tomatoes, lettuce, eggplants and raspberries. Would love to have seen it a month or so earlier. No complaints from this quarter and yes, we would go again.
We had a fantastic stay at Agriturismo Le Spighe, in fact it was our favourite accommodation that we stayed in while in Italy!
The cottage that we stayed in was on the second floor and was massive, with 2 bedrooms, a lounge, bathroom and kitchen. The outlook from each room was over the surrounding paddocks and gardens and was very beautiful and relaxing. The cottage itself was very well furnished with everything you need. We also had access to a communal laundry, BBQ and were told that we could help ourselves to the fruit and vegetables, (raspberries, apples, lettuces, tomatoes, eggplants, herbs etc).
One of our highlights while we were there was watching the 3 little kittens that lived with their mother in the garden.
The hospitality that our host Francesco and his family showed us was fantastic, from the tart on arrival, to some home made wine, parting gifts and time to chat. He and his family are warm, friendly people who really care about their agriturismo and guests.
Contact with Francesco was always quick and easy and he even met us in the nearby town on arrival after we took a wrong turn.
If you are looking for an authentic and relaxing stay in tuscany you will not be disappointed. In fact it's one of those places that I wish I could keep to myself ;)
After reading the last few pages of others' reviews, I can't think of anything clever and unique to say that hasn't already been shared. We haven't stayed at any other airbnb's, nor any place else in Tuscany to compare Le Speghe to, but we sure enjoyed ourselves. The beauty of the surroundings, convenience to things we wanted to see, and most importantly the hospitality we experienced from Francesco and his family, really made it something special. Oh, and a great value, too.
We stayed at Le Spighe from September 17th to 24th and we loved it. We rented the one bedroom cottage Il Fienile and it was just perfect for the two of us. The cottage was well equipped and very comfortable. Francesco and his parents were wonderful. We had a delicious cake made by his mother waiting for us when we arrived and during the week, we enjoyed fresh picked raspberries and a bottle of the family's own wine. We did some traveling in the area and the location of the cottage was prefect for that, but highlight of our stay was just spending time relaxing at the cottage. We went into the village markets, bought some great food and had fun cooking some delicious meals. Francesco also had lots of good advice for us about things to do in the area, good restaurants and so on. We would highly Agriturismo Le Spighe. Thank you to Francesco and his parents for taking such good care of us!
Yes we stayed at Le Spighe agriturismo for a week in September ,

We had a fantastic experience at Le Spighe. Francesco and his family went way above and beyond to make our visit a memorable one. If you are looking for an authentic agriturismo, you will find none better. Grazie Mille Francesco
