The owner has devoted a great deal of attention to detail in the sensitive modernisation of this large structure to enhance the original beauty with an eye to the enjoyment of the residents. To this end features such as a huge fireplace and large open plan areas have been maintained to give the whole space a feeling of airy brightness conducive to a sensation of tranquillity, an ideal location to recharge ones energy away from the humdrum of daily life.

Wonderful Farm house

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Aug 23, 2013
  • Stayed: Jul 2013
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.

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!

The true nature of Toscana

In the middle of olive tree fields, you'll appreciate your stay in this house where the owner put all her soul to keep it as much as possible intact, without distorsion.
The welcome was warm and the service was excellent. I especially recommend you to ask for the diner to be prepared at your arrival.
You'll enjoy the swimming pool (maintained without chemicals), the walks in the riserva naturale, the local cheese producer (you must try the ricotta), the authentic villages around and of course, Siena and other master places of Toscana.

Colletalli at Radicondoli

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Aug 13, 2012
  • Stayed: Jul 2012
A beautiful house in a beautiful location - perfect for our family holiday.

The house is charming, comfortable and relaxed. The pictures tell it as it is. During our stay the pomegranates were ripening and the apricot tree was covered in fruit - too much to eat, and we did try (cooked with honey and eaten with yoghurt from a farm five minutes drive away). At night when we were quiet and in bed a wild boar came to eat the apricots from under the tree, crunching them up stones and all (NB. they are extremely timid - they scamper off if they know you are there).

The garden blends into the surrounding countryside and the views are spectacular. There are a number of walks straight from the house into the woods and pastures. Clouds of butterflies rise up as you pass.

Luana and Cristiano are unfailingly helpful and friendly. Luana is a great cook (we ate a few times at her iinformal restaurant opened only for the Radicondoli festival). She is a great source of restaurants in Siena and Florence. Radicondoli and Belforte are short drives away. Both towns are quiet and defintely not touristy. We found Radicondoli to be very friendly with a few shops, a nice cafe and a pretty good restaurant (The Pergola). Belforte has just one but most relaxed cafe/restaurant where one of my sons had a huge T-bone steak that could have fed 3.

Further afield and besides the bigger name destinations such as Volterra, Casole d'Elsa is well worth a visit. It has at least one exceptional restaurant - I can't remember the name, cash only and I didn't ask for a receipt (Luana will know it). The tables are put out on the narrow main street as more people arrive, spreading some distance in either direction. No menu - just what you are given.

I also recommend the Camporignano vineyard (near Casole d'Elsa). The wine was exceptional - I wish we could had brought back more. It is not often that the wine is better when you bring it home.

So for an effortless fortnight of eating, drinking, sitting round the pool or in it, lounging on the sofas playing cards and watching videos, walks from the door, hilltop villages and Luana and Cristiano nearby if you need them - couldn't be better.

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
