Superb food and wineIf you are looking for a place to relax and unwind, to feel amazement from a glance towards the skyline, or a walk, or some woodland animal crossing your path, for a sunset caressed by the fresh evening breeze, to experience emotion for fascinating and amazing artistic places immersed in such unique, calm and silent environments, COME TO the FARMHOUSE CUNINA in BUONCONVENTO, and you enjoy the Tuscan countryside. WE OFFER COOKING CLASS AND WINE TOUR ON DEMAND. Each apartment is high quality, typical from Tuscany, comfortable and elegant with panoramic view. All very romantic. To offer you a home away from home.
What makes this Farmhouse unique
The ground has amazing colours and is so maleable that anyone passing over it leaves tracks. Livestock paths, numerous vineyards, olive-groves, truffle-grounds, and lush forests with oaks, ilexes, broom and hawthorn can be seen here.. Travelling along the rural dirt roads,often located on hill ridges, seems like sailing among waves of earth and, when overlooked by an open sky and pushed by the wind, one feels very small.

Amazing Home and Setting
My partner and I stayed at the Taxus apartment at Podere Cunina for a quick stay at the end of our Italy honeymoon. What can I say but this place is so beautiful. The Freddie family are such warm and gracious hosts. The apartment showcased the authentic feeling of what a true Tuscany experience should be. The home sits upon a hilltop with stunning views in all directions. It was a perfect stay to cap off our trip, unfortunately we wished we could have stayed longer. We will definitely be back for a longer stay. Thanks for a great stay. Ciao!
Fantastic Tuscan holiday with amazing views
I cannot recommend Podere Cunina highly enough. My partner and I spent a week here in late October and it was just perfect. The Freddi family could not have been more welcoming and friendly. The apartments are beautifully furnished (we stayed in Hedera which has just incredible views as you step out of the door over the hills looking towards Montalcino a few miles away). The views in every direction are just amazing. The outdoor pool is fantastic - just about warm enough to swim in even in mid-October - and also with incredible views over the olive groves to Montalcino. Highly recommend doing a cookery class with Marcello - not only for the amazing food but also it was really nice to have dinner with the family afterwards. Their extra virgin olive oil, honey and saffron is also wonderful. If you're looking for a truly peaceful, relaxing holiday in the heart of Tuscany, there can't be many places better than this. Grazie mille, Silvana and Piergiorgio - we will definitely come back again sometime to stay here again.
Fabulous family, such a Great stay!
Gorgeous property, Great family, cooking lesson was so very nice. The apartment (hedera) was cozy and perfect. The views from the property were picturesque! I would highly recommend this property to anyone traveling in Italy. It was the perfect place to view the Tuscany region and surrounding towns. The family was just a delight and we look forward to visiting again.
A Little Piece of Heaven
Podere Cunina is a truly a little piece of heaven! The love and pride that have gone into every part of this wonderful property are evident down to the smallest detail. Silvana and her family are gracious hosts and eager to make sure your stay is what you expect. Our time there was 100% PERFECT from the apartment (Hedera), to the garden, (pick your own vegetables for dinner) the pool, the absolute peace and quiet, and fun cooking class taught by son, Marcello. Don't miss the cooking class! We stayed four nights and would return again with no second thoughts. You will definitely enjoy your time at Podere Cunina. Thank you to Silvana, Piergiorgio, and Marcello for opening your beautiful place to us and making sure we had the most amazing vacation.
Breathtaking views, beautiful house, and amazing hosts!
We loved our stay at Podere Cunina!! Can't wait to go back! We took a cooking class and are ready to practice the meal at home. Thank you for a most memorable Tuscan vacation stay! xo
It was our 2nd time in Silvana's house and, as in first time, everything was perfect: the views of the valley (with Montalcino at the end), the welcoming atmosphere, the apt (comfortable, clean, spacious, well equipped).....
They also have own production (organic) of honey and olive oil, both very, very good.
Silvana and her family were always around to help and assist us with everything.
Grazie Silvana for all.
We will come back (again)!!!!!

This land is crossed by the ancient Via Cassia road and is part of the Francigena pilgrims route. It is rich with old parish-churches, abbeys, and ancient farmhouses and thermal springs, as well as travertine quarries which gave birth to the famous local handicrafts. Due to their peculiar landscape and the abundance of artistic and historical references, the Sienese Clay Hills are among the most famous and photographed environments in Italy. Set between the hills, the fields of grain and the cypress trees, the Clay Hills are a countryside heritage protected by UNESCO. Here mass tourism doesn't exist, it would be destructive and would devastate the intimacy and harmony eminating from these hills. In recent yeats efforts havebeen made to renovate local farmhouses and restart crop cultivation, which was abandoned in the '60s and '70s following industrial development. These rural smallholdings live again and often offer hospitality to tourists from all over the world as farm-holiday property and locations.
PODERE CUNINA in BUONCONVENTO is also a farm-holiday location within this system of architectural and landscape recovery that fully respects its environment. Traditional materials typical of the area, sourced via accurate and detailed research, were used for the renovation. Located inside a large nature reserve, with many small and medium-sized woodland animals, it offers 7 finely-renovated flats to tourists, with views of Montalcino, Mount Amiata and the hills of Buonconvento and Siena. It is equipped throughout with quality, antique furniture, fitted with all modern comforts, with maximum level certification regarding safety and energy saving (underfloor heating via geothermal system, thermal insulation, pool).
