A traditional rural farm has undergone a modern reinvention that brings out the best of the orginal structures and preserves the rustic attributes.
Set amongst vineyards and olive groves in the tranquil Tuscan countryside, the 18th century stone house and barn have been lightly transformed in keeping with the bio-architectural standards of the region. The simple adobe interiors have been stripped down to create expansive open plan living spaces with spare wabi-sabi style.
The apartment is self contained and come with fully equipped kitchens.
Private entrances with panoramic views of the countryside.
The spacious gardens provide a peaceful place to dine alfresco overlooking the vineyards as well as a spa to indulge in.
Simple and stylish, this compound offers a chic getaway in a quiet corner of Tuscany.

Paola and Piero were the perfect hosts for our one week stay at their lovely and beautifully decorated villa! Being locals they gave us priceless tipps, directions and a part of their life-long knowledge of the region. We very much enjoyed the breakfasts, the romantic view, the jacuzzi by night, the dinners in the garden under the tuscan sky. Thats why we will also recommend it for a honeymoon. We hope we will see you again, Paula and Piero.
Perfect quiet location with great views! As this is a whole house (including a kitchen) we enjoyed a simple home-cooked dinner one night with a view over the Tuscan hills. And the jacuzzi is a great way to relaxed at night time (yes - it has lights ;-) Paola had great tips on where to go and eat, and even made some restaurant reservations for us. Daily breakfast was great and we enjoyed a different local specialty each day. This place is perfect if you like to enjoy quiet and great views - and if you have a car (because the nearest town is a few kilometers and winding roads away)
Our bed and breakfast stay was lovely in every possible way. The rooms were beautifully furnished and tastefully decorated. The kitchen area was inviting and functional. Dining indoors or outdoors in the private garden both provided a view of the gorgeous green hillside coved in chiante vines and olive trees. Paula and Pierro were such wonderful hosts providing an authentic Tuscan breakfast each morning, and offering detailed guidance on the local sights and shops and activities specific to our individual interests. Our only regret is that we didn't have longer to stay in this delightful and peaceful hillside paradise.
Paola was a great host! Only positive things to say! Location and apt were beautiful. Daily breakfasts were delicious and always featured some local food so we got to learn while we ate. Paola helped with scheduling and activity recommendations. Stocked kitchen made it easy to cook dinner and eat al fresca. As noted on some of the other reviews, you need to have a car and be ready for some local driving/ slim roads. What we liked best was Paola's personal touch as we felt like family with her exceptional hospitality!
What an amazing place and Paula and Pierre were such amazing hosts. I most definitely would recommend visiting!
Paola and Piero we had a wonderful second stay in one of your apartments. Your breakfast is a real value add: we appreciate your hospitality, recommendations and the support you provide for day trips, restaurants, local events, reservations, buying tickets etceteras. Your apartments are beautifully designed (and well equipped) and provide a great relaxing atmosphere.
Both Paola and her husband Piero are the perfect hosts and instantly made us feel at home. We had a very comfortable apartment. It's the ideal place to relax and get away from the hustle and bustle of the busy city life. Paola and Piero gave us plenty of tips of all the worth while places to visit. Being locals they had a lot of information at their fingertips and were always ready to share it with us. We stayed at their place for a whole month and felt so at home we were quite sad when the time arrived to say good buy.
Of course we loved the pussy cats who also became good friends with us. Grazie mille Paola and Piero
P.S. We will always remember our 28th wedding anniversary which was made so very special and the beautiful dinner we had together.
