We wanted a beautiful rural location and the chance to eat good Tuscan food. We got so much more than that. The level of hospitality from Alessandra, Guido and their staff (Magdelena and Sylvana) was outstanding: nothing was to much trouble and the cooking was just fantastic. It really felt like being part of a family. The other guests were mainly Italian and easy to get along with. The location is quite off the beaten path being quite high up a hill but worth it for the amazing views. The garden is full of flowers and butterflies. Everything is kept clean and tidy. It was beautiful but the best thing was staying with very genuine and kind people. Grazie tanto tutti.
As the rest of the reviews mention, this agriturismo is up a long, winding gravel roadway creeping up into the mountains overlooking the Arno valley. Once you make it up the road you are rewarded with breathtaking views and very friendly hosts. The rooms are comfortable and clean, the grounds are fun to explore, but the best part about staying here is that you are steps away from Alessandra's dinners. They are simply magnificent.
We were looking for a place near Grotta Guisi so we could visit the thermal again on our way back North. We weren't sure what to think when we started down the road as it's a ways down. However the ride was pretty amazing as we wound through olive groves owned by the Agriturismo. Guido and Alessandra are spectacular proprietors and will go out of their way to do most anything for you. Be sure to take your meals there as Alessandra is an amazing cook and you will be treated to lots of meals passed down through generations in her family. Also, there isn't a bad room in the place as she has decorated and painted all of the rooms in various color themes. Take several walks through the olives and around the property as its all very unique. Visit the chickens and ducks on your walks and have an omelette for breakfast which will be made with eggs collected the night before. All around the property are plantings of award winning roses, flowers and an assortment of herbs. Vegetable gardens are sprinkled throughout the olives as well.…
We were here between Christmas and New year. The decorations were lovely and homey. After a day of sight seeing on a cold rainy day, the wood fire was lovely to sit by with a cup of tea. Room was large and we had a bit of a view over the valley. 3 course dinner was available nightly and delicious but so much food! Don't have lunch if you want to make it through dinner. Love the dogs and cats. Made me miss mine less. Definitely recommend!
Amazing guest house high in the hills overlooking the Arno flood plain. The couple who own and run this do this for the love of it, their home and Tuscany. This is agriturismo at its best. An evening meal is available every evening. We ate there every night as Alassandra's cooking was excellent. There was no choice but the menu varied from local dishes to steak Fiorentina . We would definitely stay there again.
