A perfect Tuscan escape...

  • 5 of 5

This is such a special place. I, my husband and two teenage sons enjoyed a wonderful fortnight in this stunning and superior farmhouse. The photographs don't do the place justice (hard to see how they could) and the host, Alessandro, could not have done more to make our stay better. If you're looking to get off the beaten track, surrounded by nature, wildlife and perfect peace, this is the place for you.

From start to finish, Alessandro was great. He offered to meet us at the nearest village so we could follow him to the house (though his directions were superb) and his hospitality was absolutely second to none. He went above and beyond the 'norm', filling the fridge and cupboards with delicious (and practical) foods for our arrival, providing us with wine, oil, kitchen essentials and so much more. We were blown away by his thoughtful generosity - there's nothing he didn't think of (even bath robes for the pool) and everything we sat on, slept in or used was of excellent quality. He was a lovely, willing and helpful host in every way and I've never stayed anywhere so well equipped - the kitchen was better than my own!

This is not a place you'd find by accident, but wow, is it all the better for that. Surrounded by beautiful rolling hills, totally private, the views are breathtaking, the sunsets from the verandah magical. Every day kites and eagles flew overhead and we also saw deer, badgers and hares – just idyllic. The house sits in lovely sloping lawns with ancient trees, olives and fruit trees and has a wonderful pool that gets the sun right though to sunset. There's even a cool little pool robot to keep it clean!

Alessandro's eye for design and style shines through every room, neatly blended with practicality and home comfort. I would live in this house. It's a fantastic mix of old and new - fabulous beams and solid oak doors with super-comfortable beds and quality bathrooms and appliances. Everything he provided, from towels and bed linen to kitchen equipment - in fact, every facility you can think of - was faultless.

Some might find the few wind turbines on one of the hills distracting, we didn't (you can't see them from the verandah), and you're not really 'near' anywhere, but that's the magic of this place! We had no problem driving to Scansano for meals out or groceries (15 mins). We visited Pitigliano (40 mins), Saturnia hot springs (30), Sorana and Sovana etc. Also Siena (an easy 90-min drive) and San Gimignano (bit further). Paradise!

  • 5 of 5 heißt, Bilder sagen mehr als Worte...! Aber die Bewertung von Jenny hat uns überzeugt.

Die Bilder können nicht das zeigen, was das Haus wirklich bietet.

Das Haus ist ein Traum. Wen es nicht stört über 3 km Schotterweg zu fahren und 25 Minuten zum Einkaufen, dem kann ich dieses, mit ganz viel Liebe und Geschmack hergerichtete Haus, nur ans Herz legen.

Hier hat man einfach nur seine Ruhe und die Natur. Der Pool ist phänomenal.

Wir waren mit 9 Personen dort und jeder hatte seine Freiräume.

Wir wurden von Alessandro sehr herzlich empfangen und er hat uns viele Dinge zur Verfügung gestellt, welche in anderen Ferienhäusern nicht inbegriffen sind.

Ausflüge nach Saturnia, Pitigliano, Grosseto, Siena...und natürlich ans Meer, sind mit einem höheren Zeitaufwand verbunden, aber um so lieber kehrt man in dieses Haus zurück.

5 Sterne

Vielen Dank
