Casa Verniano, a farm house dating back to 1496, is for us - a family with 2 kids - the best and most charming place to spend holidays in Tuscany. It's located in its very center, which makes it possible to reach a number of sightseeing tours within relatively short time. If you think about longer expeditions don't forget to take into account the Italian "roads".
It's peacefully placed without any noise to be heard - except for Gavino perhaps, the donkey searching for food almost everywhere at any possible time ;-)
The apartments are nicely done and the entire familiy was very kind and let us have the chance to indulge in the dolce vita as some others may only dream of.
Don't forget to take care to take some lessons of how to make honey or pizza in the specially dedicated oven.
Even though we were way too early, Illenia was ready to welcome us at the apartment. We were immediately impressed by the beautiful views from our terrace, no need to say we spent most of the time outside enjoying the view. The apartment is part of an 'agriturismo', but there were only a few other apartments occupied, so it was pretty quiet on the terrain. Sounds from the apartment on top of ours were clearly heard though, which was annoying, especially when trying to sleep. Other sounds were coming from the horses, geese, goats and donkey, which is to be expected when staying near a farm, it didn't bother us for one second. The apartment itself is pretty basic, with everything you need but no more than that. It's a great base for visting Siena and there are many charming villages in the neighbourhood. Be sure though that you have a car that can handle a little drive offroad because a dirtroad is the only way to get up there. Casa Verniano/Istrice is a good option if you want some peace and quiet and some amazing views!
