Casa Verniano is set in incredible surroundings, it's beautifully laid out and the garden /pool area is fab - very relaxing. Our apartment was really spacious and comfortable. My main criticism is that the kitchen equipment is just too basic for a self catering apartment, and it also needs a thorough clean, the cupboards and drawers were dirty and had hairs and old crumbs in them etc. Also the bed sheets were very old and a little fraying - luckily we had brought our own! Saying all of that I would definitely visit again and would recommend it to friends and family but if these small points were rectified it would literally be perfect! I loved being around all the animals too, this was a real bonus.
Ilenia and her family were welcoming, friendly and helpful. Before we arrived she contacted me to ask if we would like to join the other guests for a pizza dinner. It was cooked with their farm ingredients in an outdoor wood fired stone oven. We got to choose toppings (great for vegetarians) and drink wine also made from grapes grown on their farm. Because of the dinner, we had enjoyed getting to know everyone. The apartment was beautiful, clean and had comfortable beds. The kitchen is great for making your own meals. Surroundings could not have been more lovely for sunset walks and using one of the bikes provided. We also enjoyed the animals and the pool.
The perfect starting point for a Italy holiday. Iiena Roberta and Roberto * 2 were wonderful. The contentment throughout the farm starts with the family and flows through the entire farm. Horse rides pasta making lazing by the pool or enjoying the home grown food of wine olive oil and fruit and veggies. All the way down to the magical fire flys in evenings in the Forrest which transport you to a magical world that we have only read in story books. This is a little gem of a find that I would highly recommend to any family or couple. Ciao ciao.
We had the best time with Ilenia and her family at Casa Verniano!! The farm was beautiful and the family so sweet! One night the gas went out and we had to wait until the morning for the repair man so ilenia's brother Simone started the grill for us and we all had a picnic dinner outside together. It was the perfect night! I also recommend the horseback riding. We had such a great time and hope to visit again!!!
Séjour parfait dans la petite maison Pantera. Endroit très calme avec une vue magnifique. Des belles ballades dans les environs. Un petit feu dans la cheminée après un diner en terrasse. Un endroit parfait pour les enfants aussi avec chevaux, poneys, ânes, oies et poules. Ilenia est très amicale. On y retournera bien volontiers.

Our stay at Casa Verniano was the highlight of our trip to Italy. The Verniano family could not be more warm and inviting, their location was perfect, the farmhouse is comfortable, and the food was delicious. We made day trips to Siena and the beautiful village of Colle di Val D'Elsa, but mostly just relaxed and drank wine on the patio.
The Fiorentino Steak was amazing!
We will stay here any time we visit the area!
My wife and I had the most amazing time at Ilenia's farm. Her family was so friendly and we enjoyed the accommodations. This was more than what we expected and her family made the experience a memorable one for us. We have stayed in other houses in the past in the area, but her home was by far the best experience. It was very close to the neighboring cities and it was not very hard to find. Do not hesitate to book this home! You will surely enjoy the true tuscan experience. As far as any details about what we liked, the apartment was clean, nice, cozy, and warm with the fire we made. The food we ate was great so I suggest getting the breakfast every morning as well as the homemade dinner. All of the ingredients come from the farm so you know its fresh. And once again I have to say that whatever we needed, Ilenia was available and ready to help us. You will definitely need a car when you visit and a GPS will be fine to find the house. I can't say enough good things about this stay. This will be a new annual trip for us. We look forward to staying here again next year!
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!
Wow, if you want to visit Chianti country, be a stones throw from Sienna and Florence, and stay in beautiful, peaceful countryside then this is the place for you! The stone cottage is beautiful, well-appointed and has an amazing fireplace. We really enjoyed visiting the goats, horses, donkeys, chickens and geese that were our immediate neighbours - they had some real personality. It would be easy to sit and look at the scenery for days on end, and Jlenia was a great hostess. She provided us with a lot of information on what to do and see and was enjoyable to talk with. If the weather is warm, the pool is beautiful. Hard to believe what you can get for your money.
