  • I spent 10 days on this peaceful farm quietly settled among vineyards and olive gardens in hills around Rigomagno that is a fine fortified village build in XI on a place with Etruscan origins. It's an amazingly quiet and cozy place, I particularly enjoyed starry nights when many solemn fireflies helped Vitto The Brave Dog watching the garden. The spacious and fully equipped apartment was perfect for my relatively long stay, I travelled across all Tuscany and fully enjoyed time I spent at Marco and Barbara's place. A recommendation for future guests would be to consider a smaller car to enjoy narrow countryside roads. Also you may want to avoid a windy road that leads to the farm, especially late in the evening. It goes first right up to Rigomagno's walls and then down the hill. Instead, turn to the right after crossing railway tracks in Rigomagno Stazione. Make sure to study a local map before you hit the road, you may want to use GPS coordinates that hosts provide with your car navigation software. Many thanks again for the great time in Tuscany!

  • Lovely flat and a great dog - Vito - to play with!! Also cuddly cats ;) and hilarious talking parot (not in the guest apartment tho). You will be amazed what he's capable of. Just mind-blowing! Nice and welcoming hosts so you will feel at ease.
    Recommend very much. Thank you for the stay!

  • The apartment was a sub divided portion of an old farm house. It was located (email hidden) side. Car was a must. The apartment was clean and (website hidden) contained all necessary amenities as described. The host family was nice and friendly. The dog 'Vitto' they kept was very energetic and lovely. Its location was good, for it only took less than 45 minutes to most of the tourist attractions such as Siena, Picenza and Monteopulciano.
    It is highly recommended.

  • Barbara was not available but Jacop was very nice and met us at an easy location to guide us to the house.
    We only stayed one night but it was a good experience to be isolated from everything. The place was quiet and peaceful
    The house is in good condition for its age and had a rustic charming feel. Their talking parrot caused us a great deal of amusement.

  • We had as well a great time at Barbaras & Jacobos place and in the great surroundings. With a car (you definitely need one) it´s a good spot for starting daytrips to Siena, Firenze, Montepulciano and all the nice small Tuscan villages.
    The apartment is exactly like the pics promise and has everything you need. Barbara, Jacobo and his parents are very nice and uncmplicated hosts and as a little special you will be greeted by Vito (the lovely and playful dog) and the 2 cute little kittens every morning. Thanks for a great week! :-)

  • Barbara and Jacobo were excellent hosts. The house was very clean, well equipped and homely. The kitchen was small but good to cook in and had everything that we needed. Shower was hot and the bed was comfortable. We would definitely recommend this place to others.

    Note that you definitely need a car if you're staying here as it's fairly remote. That being said, it's only a short car drive to some other great towns with shops and food.

  • Séjour agréable, la région est magnifique. L'appartement est charmant. Barbara et son copain très accueillants. Le chien et les chatons adorables. En revanche, il faut vraiment avoir envie de passer du temps en pleine campagne. L'appartement est en effet assez loin du village principal (Lucignano, 7km), il n'y a quasiment pas de réseau mobile et malheureusement quand nous y étions il y avait un problème temporaire de réseau donc nous n'avions pas de wifi. Bref on était un peu coupé de tout, ce qui n'était pas toujours pratique. Mais globalement bonne expérience.

  • We had a great stay at Barbara's agriturismo. The apartment is located in the downstairs portion of Barbara's beautiful Tuscan home. It's very private and decorated with a mixture of antiques and vintage finds. My friend and I found the experience to be very charming and relaxing. They also have the BEST dog. A beautiful Weimaraner who loves to play and give kisses. We were very happy with our stay. Barbara's father in law also gave us a bottle of their own pressed olive oil. Talk about hospitality!

  • We never met Barbara and mostly communicated with Jacopo. He responded in a timely fashion. The house itself was a little hard to find and we had to drive around once or twice before finding it thanks to the dog which was a give away. You cant miss him.He is very friendly and loves to play.

    The apartment is cute. And there is a cute rose bush above the entrance. We were there during a bit of a cold spell and froze our buns off the 3 nights we stayed there. We had a heater and used the fireplace but the home didn't warm up very quickly. So for that reason, it may not have been the best experience for us.The surroundings were very beautiful and you definitely get peace and quiet here. The location was a good home base for visiting Umbria.

  • Super cute, authentic, rustic piece of Tuscany. Very near a gorgeous little town called Lucignano which I just adored. The place was a little tricky to find because you can't use a sat nav (navi), but we only had to double back once :) They do have a very lively puppy who might startle people who are not so used to dogs!
