We stayed here in an apartment for a week. As two couples, we initially booked a family room with two bedrooms but were “upgraded” to an apartment for free. Upon arrival on an unpaved road (okay for us because we had a big car but I wouldn’t recommend it for a small car like I have at home), we were really confused about where to find the reception, but eventually managed to locate it in the restaurant building (opens at 3 PM but we were able to check in early). The staff was friendly and explained the area to us (it’s a large compound with different lodging options). We also had to drive up the hill to breakfast. As a big bonus point: We really enjoyed the view and remote location on a hill top surrounded by beautiful olive trees and vineyards (see photos). However, it’s off the beaten path and I’d only recommend it if you’re planning to stay there for a while and not take day trips like we did. It’s a pretty long drive up the hill that gets tiring after a few times. The apartment was okay, but didn’t exactly measure up to my personal expectations (well done, photographer and web designers!). Sparse decoration and furnishing, no TV and aircon/additional towels to be paid in addition. The pool was okay - clean and refreshing - but if you’re looking for the infinity pool on the photos, that one’s actually by the rooms building, not the apartments. You can use both, I guess. The breakfast buffet was large with some really good food but a little sparse in the veggie department. They had gluten free options, which was great for my travel buddy. The breakfast room was really nicely decorated and authentic. We didn’t eat at the restaurant because we were always on the road, so I can’t say anything about that. All in all, we had an okay stay in a great location and in an okay apartment with okay amenities.

Tuscany has so much to offer but I must say that this fattoria is perfect location. Between the sweet villages Certaldo and Gambassi. A perfect place for some nice walks in the country or to visit one of this beautiful villages. The people at the fattoria were very friendly and customer orientated. The apartment clean. And I loved the pool. We also had a fantastic wine tasting. Hope to be back next year!! Special thanks to Stefania. 🙏

We booked this accommodation because of the good reviews on tripadvisor. As it was a nonrefundable reservation the accommodation cashed immediately 100% after reservation, 8 weeks in advance. We were not very pleased with this fattoria. The good things: The surrounding is beautiful, the view is spectacular, the swimming pools are beautiful located, the matrasses on the bed are good. These are the disappointing things: we booked an apartment and a room at the same reservation. It appeared that the room and the apartment are 1 km apart from each other. Nobody had informed us while booking. Breakfast and dinner are in a building at ca 1 km distance. Price for breakfast is € 12,-- breakfast is fine but on busy days it is not refilled. Dinner is € 28,-- for 4 courses without drinks. Antipasti, pasta, main course, little desert. No choice. Not a very good cook in the kitchen. The apartment is very old and the furniture even older. It all looks 50 years old and partly in bad shape. The window fell of of the wall. We asked the owners to replace a light outside our house as our 93 year old grandma could not see anything in the dark, but during our 4 days stay the light had not been replaced. On Saturday september 29 we asked the receptionist (the owner) for things to do. She advised us to go to Gaiole in Chianti for the big annual wine festival every last weekend of September. 1,5 hours later we arrived there, but in this village there was no wine festival or what so ever; they never heard of it. Overall we found the owners (parents and 2 daughters) not very friendly. They don't like guests or they are tired at the end of the season. All together we rate this accommodatie with a 6.

In June/July 2018 our party of two couples spent 5 nights at this property. The one amazing thing this property has going is the beautiful location and views. It’s nestled in the hills of Tuscany about 20 minutes from San Gimignano. It’s a bit of a challenge to find. GPS is somewhat helpful. You just need to keep going once you reach the dirt/rock road until you see the large sign announcing the property. To begin we arrived a 1:00 pm and the office was closed from 1:00-3:00. It is Italy after all. So we went back up the road and found a very nice restaurant/farmhouse and had a delightful lunch sitting outside. When we got back to the farmhouse it was not open. The receptionist arrived at about 3:15. There were about 8 of us waiting at this point. We checked in and felt like we were putting her out. Not very hospitable. She said she’d show us to our room. We all walked outside and she got into her car! Our “Family Apartment” was in another building about 2 minutes up the road. Not at all what we expected. We all got in our cars and started to drive away. She stopped before leaving the parking lot, got out of her car and came to ours to tell us she couldn’t take us now. Very strange. (What? You didn't know that 30 seconds ago?) She gave us quick directions and told us she’d be up in 5 minutes. We tried to find the unit but were not successful, so we waited for her. She showed us our “apartment”. This was a big disappointment. Up a steep flight of stairs to the top with no landing, just a door. Once inside there was a small area then about 5 stairs down into the main room (no hand rail, steep stairs). The main room was a fairly large room with a rustic table with 4 chairs and a long sofa that was too dirty to even consider sitting on. There was no type of kitchen facilities, no refrigerator, so sink except the bathroom. This was hardly an apartment. Up the stairs (about 6) were 2 bedrooms and a bathroom. The bedrooms were quite nice with sweeping views of the Tuscan hills and fields below. The bed was a king (I believe) and it was hard. We got used to it after the first night. The air conditioner worked ok, but the evening breezes were more effective in cooling off the apartment. On the desktop was a laminated price list that included prices for using extra toilet paper (.50 euro each), extra mini-bottles of soap, extra trash bags and the most ridiculous was the charge for using too much electricity running the air conditioner (which by-the-way, we were already paying extra for). Ridiculous! The bathroom was big and quite modern. One exception was the shower. The tub/shower had a glass partition to keep water off the floor. This partition did the opposite since there was a big gap between the tub and the glass. I flooded the bathroom floor the first night. It was frustrating! The short hallway to the bedrooms had benches which came in handy for off-loading when we came back from a day of touring. There was a pond outside our window across the grapevine field and a multitude of frogs and various creatures of the night serenaded us each evening. There was a swimming pool but they told us the city didn’t send enough water to fill it. That seemed strange. The first evening there were hoses filling up the pool. We still enjoyed sitting out by the pool and having a picnic dinner and played a card game in the evenings. The second night we were there we decided to try the restaurant. You can see that review below “Microwave Restaurant in Tuscany”. It was a terrible experience and I’ll just add that one in our party got food poisoning and had to stay in the apartment for the entire next day. After the horrible microwave dinner we went back to the apartment to find there was NO water. Fortunately it went back on about 1 ½ hours later after we had all brushed our teeth with bottled water. Two mornings later we woke up to no water. Not sure when it went off, but it finally came back on around 7:30 am. On a positive note, the breakfast in the same hotel is nice. It included made to order cappucino, breads, cheese and meats, yogurt, cereal, eggs (hard boiled), and pastries (chocolate croissants – yum). Overall the feeling we got from this Fattorie was that we were a nuisance. We did not feel welcome at all. Just the opposite, the staff was quite aloof. However, I must say the young woman during breakfast was lovely and generous with her smile. It’s a shame since the buildings and the surrounding area is picture-book Tuscany. I would not stay here again. There are so many other places in the countryside, I’m sure we could find one that is more welcoming an wouldn’t give us food poisoning. Microwave Restaurant in Tuscany The second evening we tried the restaurant at Fattorie Santo Pietro. The breakfast was nice, so we thought the dinner must be amazing. Wrong! The evening began with a lovely menu and an exclusive reservation. They could only take us at 7:45. We arrived on time and at 8:15 the waitress finally acknowledged us even though there were only 2 other tables with a total of 5 other people. When the waitress was taking our order, her phone rang and she actually answered it! When she was finished we placed our order. Our antipasto arrived about 15 minutes later, but no wine. We finally caught our waitress’s attention and requested our wine. We then noticed a microwave sound that was continually beeping followed by the slamming of the door – a very distinct sound. We were wondering if our food would be microwaved. About an HOUR after that we received our food. Three of us ordered lasagna and we were presented with a brown square that was cold in the middle. We WERE the recipients of a microwave dinner. There was nothing fresh about the lasagna. It had clearly been frozen. It tasted like nothing one would expect from a country restaurant in Tuscany. One person in our party ordered a soup and the main course of rabbit. The microwave was working continuously. When we were finally finished with our dinner 1 hour and 45 minutes later the wait staff asked the owner (who was eating at another table) if she and the other waitress could take a smoke break. Frustrated waiting for the bill I went into the kitchen and notice the lack of any type of active kitchen or a chef! Instead I saw a waitress taking food out of a package and putting it on a plate. I asked for the bill and she said, “in a moment”. Many minutes later, no bill. One of us approached the waitress and said that this was not a real restaurant and the food was microwaved. She denied it at first and said the food was fresh, but clearly it wasn’t. The next day the person who ate the rabbit and soup had violent food poisoning and was bed-ridden the entire day. One day of vacation gone. Stay away from this restaurant. It would be better to go hungry! There are so many fine restaurants in Tuscany…choose another!

1. Horrible Insects. The pool is enjoyable except for the fact that there are stinging wasp-like flies. The mosquitos in this location are abundant and cause swelling of 2 inches+ in diameter. See photos below. I acquired 20+ of these mosquito welts from a stay of under 48 hours. Unless you enjoy painful bites and medical expenses, I would avoid this location. 2. No drinkable water. Two bottles are provided in the room, but besides that, there is no drinkable water nearby. The tap water and fountains taste horrible. 3. Subpar Breakfast. Breakfast is subpar and not authentic. They serve old bread, cheap cold cuts, and low-quality cheese. 4. No Restaurant. Do not be deceived by the advertising of a restaurant. The restaurant is only open on weekends. So, you will have to drive 30 minutes one way to eat if you stay here. 5. Rude Staff. The staff is unfriendly and rude. I have never been scared of staff before, except at Fattorie Santo Pietro. 6. Unpaved Roads. Would not recommend a stay here unless you have a four-wheel drive. The roads are unpaved and uneven. The roads will cause damage to a regular sedan.
