Absolutely peaceful

  • 5 of 5
We are a couple with three children aged 10 to 16 years. Our stay at the house was wonderful. Colli Talli, an ancient farmhouse, combines old charm with the comforts of modern life. The surroundings are truly amazing and Radicondoli is a typical Tuscan village. We split the day between the heavenly rest of the house (birds and flowers everywhere) and travel by scenic landscapes and villages in the area. Undoubtedly we would like to come back and we fervently hope to do !! Luana and Cristiano give their warm welcome and are always at disposal.

A great farmhouse in idyllic Tuscan countryside

  • 5 of 5
We had a great week in this wonderful old house in a beautiful untouristy part of Tuscany. The house is spacious and clean and one of my favourite parts about it is that in many rooms there are two windows so you could have a wonderful gentle cross breeze. We had more space than we needed - there were only 4 of us (another adult in our party was unable to make the trip in the end). I think this house could comfortably fit 2 families with 2 or 3 kids each plus perhaps a grandparent as well.

My kids loved coming home from daytrips to spend late afternoons at the pool. They also loved seeing a couple of Luana and Cristiano's cats around the property and occasionally their very gentle dog.

Being on a hilltop, the heat was not as strong as in valleys, and we loved the fireflies at night, the birdsong, and the occasional sound of bells on a herd of sheep in a nearby pasture. We also saw a fox and deer. The location is private and relatively secluded - there is just one other house and Luana and Cristiano's house on this hill, and we never felt in each others way.

The un-touristy small hilltop town of Radicondoli was a 5 or 10 min drive away, and had a few restaurants, notably Luana's Agriteca (with delicious fresh buffalo mozzarella, salads and charcuterie platters, etc.) as well as La Pergola with great pizza and patio. On a clear evening you can see San Gimignano and the lights of Volterra in the distance from this patio. There is a small Coop grocery open in the mornings and again between 5 and 7pm. Otherwise we went to Colle di Val d'Elsa for our groceries. We also had Luana cook for us, which basically means having a professional chef cater a meal for you - it was delicious!

We made a trip into Siena (fyi - there is a little grocery store near one of the gates inside the old town that is open on Sundays). Other side trips were to San Gimignano, Volterra, the classic tour of Brolio Castle and the Barone Ricasole winery in Chianti which we loved, and a trip into Florence (an easy drive - we parked at the train station parking lot). Truth be told, you could easily just hang out at Colletalli all week.

There was wifi at the house (although we weren't streaming video or anything) and we found if we loaded up our daytrip destination on google maps at the house, we didn't need service for the GPS dot to track along and show us our location in the backroads of Tuscany.

A great spot

lovely farmhouse in spectacular setting

  • 5 of 5
this charming, authentically restored farmhouse was the perfect Tuscan getaway for our three generation family holiday. Situated within an hour of Siena, San Gimigano and Florence, the location made for easy day sightseeing trips. It was a joy to return to this bucolic setting and relax with a glass of wine by the pool and supper on the rose-covered terrace overlooking the beautiful, unspoiled views. After a few days we really felt that we were living in Italy thanks in great part to our wonderful hosts Luana and Christiano who made sure we had everything we needed to enjoy our visit. Our mornings started with the sound of the bell in the sheep meadows and a five minute drive took us to the little charming village of Radicondoli for cappuccinos and a stroll through the ancient hillside pathways. The little grocery and butcher provided all the cheeses, wine and fresh food we needed. We had several good choices for restaurants from Luana's Agriteca-fun and cozy- in the square to the Trattorria il Nazionale for good steaks. la Pergola has delicious pizza and a breathtaking view --don't miss the sunset from their terrace. A bit out of town we enjoyed Osteria del Borgo in Mensano--great atmosphere. For a special treat, have Luana make a Tuscan meal to order at home. We all were surprised at how unspoiled and untouristy this area is----no traffic, no tour buses,. A true paradise---we dream of returning to this gorgeous place.

Wonderful Farm house

  • 5 of 5
We stayed in this wonderful historic farm house in the middle of Tuscany from 20.07. 03.08.2013
Even our 14 Year old son recognized the fantastic countryside – what means a lot as normally he only recognizes computer screens!
The 6 year old boy enjoyed the pool pretty much all day – so it appeared to be challenging for our host to clean the pool in between. Anyway all this happened in a mysterious, pleasant and very kind way!
We adults did find the time to relax. The house is far away from all the hectic places but its close enough to do shopping and go out for dinner at night.

It’s renovated with an incredibly love to detail, we can only recommend this place and will be back.

The Best Place to stay in Tuscany!

  • 5 of 5
Lovely place, in the countryside, renovated to perfection. You Leave the house and you're surrounded by nature and silence. Ideal for families and groups of friends. And if it rains, the house is large, cozy, functional. Luana is an exceptional hostess, nice, friendly and helpful. Excellent nearby restaurants, producers of cheeses and meats exceptional nearby: a daydream. Right prices. Do not miss!

Colletalli and Radicondoli exude the true essence of that part of Tuscany as yet unspoilt and not so well known. Their ancient origin so evident in their very structure, with every stone and brick revealing a sequence of caring and sage adaptation through centuries. Equally around you is the visual beauty of generations of good farmland husbanding. This age long labour apparently harnessed solely so that you may indulge in a culinary feast. Olive oil, wine home-made pasta and vegetables aplenty. You can work this out, if you wish, by walking, cycling or horse riding along the meandering tracks and lanes often flanked by the characteristic and poetic Cyprus trees, and always inviting you closer to nature. Away from the commercial trappings of mass tourism, you will be rewarded by sudden and pleasant encounters with a wealth of medieval fortresses, churches and small hamlets which are dotted around the gentle hills and meet people enjoying and willing to share their slow pace of life.

Other Activities: Hill walking, trekking, visit to geothermic power station and museum
