Encomiabile la disponibilità e la cortesia di Francesco che non ha esitato ad attendere il nostro arrivo sino a tarda ora e si è sempre prodigato per farci avere informazioni e consigli utilissimi in merito ai luoghi da visitare e agli eventi che si tenevano nei dintorni. Il cottage è pulito, ben curato, confortevole e dotato di tutto quanto serve per trascorrere in piena autonomia un gradevole soggiorno in una zona che si è rivelata veramente strategica. Nel raggio di una trentina di chilometri si trovano infatti località di notevole interesse storico, architettonico e culturale come Orvieto, Bolsena e le città del tufo Sorano, Pitigliano e Sovana. Da segnalare l'ottimo rapporto qualità/prezzo della struttura.
Infine un particolare ringraziamento anche a mamma Ivana per la sua gentilezza e per la fantastica torta che ha reso ancor più piacevole il momento della prima colazione.
"green & easy"
...l'Agriturismo Le Spighe è un posto davvero incantevole, immerso nel verde e nel silenzio. L'atmosfera rilassante, familiare ed autentica del luogo è in perfetta armonia con la cortesia, la disponibilità e l'ospitalità di Francesco che ci ha accolti come amici e "pellegrini".
Abbiamo dormito in un casale tra i più antichi (tutto per noi!), che era il vecchio dazio doganale al confine tra Granducato di Toscana e Stato Pontificio e sulla soglia di "casa nostra" ci è stato spiegato da Francesco che si snodava l'antica Via Francigena......e la voglia di rimettersi in Cammino è tornata prepotente e luminosa come sempre nella mia mente.
Grazie per la bella ed indimenticabile esperienza (purtroppo troppo breve!) e sicuramente...a presto!!!
We stayed at Agriturismo Le Spighe for 2 nights while traveling thru Italy. It was a wonderful 2 days and wish we could have stayed longer! Francesco was a wonderful host and was there to greet us on arrival with a great fruit tart and bottle of wine. The weather was not in our favor but we were stocked well with fire wood and the maps to the local thermal pools were wonderful!! Francesco made us feel like friends not just guests from the beginning and is very attentive to details. We were glad to have met his mother and will cherish our parting gifts. Hope to see you again Francesco!
At the end of a long driveway, surrounded by farm land, fruit trees and flowers, Le Spighe is a comfortable country retreat. So peaceful listening to the birds at night. Francesco and his family are the best at warm welcomes and helpful assistance. (The fig jam was delicious!And the asparagus!)
We spent a week at Le Spighe which had all the little items that make it easy to settle in quickly. A car is necessary but easily picked up at Orvieto, ( which is a "must see" place too) and the drive through the hills in May was simply a pleasure. Francesco gave us excellent directions so it was easy to find.
Thank you for everything and hope to see you all again!
Our own little piece of Heaven! This was the second time we stayed at one of Francesco's properties and as expected, we were not disappointed! Francesco & his family are lovely people paying close attention to every detail and making you feel so at home. From the moment we arrived we were welcomed with smiles and Francesco was so kind to pick up some milk for us as we had our 15 month old with us. Speaking of our toddler, if it's possible, I think she had more fun than us! Just kidding, we had a wonderful time too! She enjoyed chasing the cats, running all around the grounds & stomping in every puddle she could find as well as spending time playing & hugging Adelaide! While she napped we enjoyed some lunch or snack outdoors while sipping on some local wine enjoying the Tuscan sun. At night we laid a blanket on the floor & all 3 of us enjoy cozying up by the fire in our living area. Francesco helped us set up another cooking lesson with one of our favorite local chefs & we had a wonderful time. We also thoroughly enjoyed the pot luck dinner with all the guest, Francesco & his wonderful family, a lovely couple from Holland as well as our Canadian friends we met up with at the cottage whom we met upon our last visit. We visited Orvieto, Montepulciano as well as some other local towns and had just a wonderful time. Francesco and delightful family, we are so very thankful you are willing to open your farm up to us to stay as we truly love it there and will be sure to visit again in the future. Thank you so much!
ottimo posto in cui trascorrere un breve periodo di vacanza. Vicino a molti luoghi interessanti (lago di Bolsena, terme, città d'arte) e facile da raggiungere (se si ha l'auto). Francesco e suo padre sono perfetti nell'ospitalità. L'appartamento a disposizione è spazioso, accogliente, ben riscaldato, pulito. C'è una cucina con tutto il necessario per preparare eventuali pasti. Ottimo rapporto qualità-(website hidden) torneremo!
Wonderfully remote and private cottage for a stress-relieving and idyllic vacation near the renown thermal spa resort of San Casciano dei Bagni and the Lago di Bolsena. Family-friendly, clean, elegantly furnished, with a well equipped kitchen and everything you need at place. About 2,2 hrs from Rome (Airport). Very welcoming and forthcoming host, who lives in a town nearby. His mother makes an excellent apple pie. Watch out for the fox!
