|Minimum Stay||6 - 20 nights|
Where can you escape the world and slow down your pace? Where can you find an untouched land that still maintains the old customs of a rural culture that not even global technology has touched? The answer is quite simple: Agricola Neci.
Here you can enjoy intimacy, privacy and relaxation in a secret world surrounded by the Tuscan countryside. Spend your time reading books, eating and drinking or enjoying the sites of our 642 acre estate. With truffle beds and olive groves on the estate, you can dedicate yourself to truffle hunting or harvesting olives to help make our very own olive oil - Olio Nece.
If you are keen on athletic activities, there is plenty of things to do including kayaking in the private lake of the Agricola, walking up and down the hills or cycling in one of the world’s most beautiful landscapes. And if you are a fan of vintage bicycles, you can even participate in the famous Eroica: a race on ancient roads using vintage bicycles, surrounded by gorgeous scenery and fuelled by a mouth-watering selection of food and wine.
And if it rains? You still have many activities to choose from including visiting the famous Archabbey of Monte Oliveto Maggiore with its Renaissance paintings on the life of St. Benedict, or touring Siena with its museums and art galleries. Or try Montalcino, the beautiful village in the breathtaking Val d’Orcia, renowned all over the world for the production of its precious Brunello wine.
Whatever you want to do, one thing is for sure: during your stay in Agricola Neci you won't get bored!
The amazing villa and exceptional service made this one of our most enjoyable visits to Italy! Tha breathtaking views and charming restaurants added to the true Truscan ambiance we were looking for. Patrick has a true gem of a retreat and not only would we like to bring our entire family back but will recommend this to anyone planning a trip to Tuscany. Thank you Patrick, Gregorio, and Maria!
Our family has stayed at numerous VRBO rentals that have been lovely. None have compelled us to write a review until now. The Agricola Neci experience is something special to share with everyone looking for rustic yet modern accommodations in an authentic Tuscan setting. Look no further, seriously!
We were a group of two families (4 adults, 4 kids ages 11-13), and here's a list of what we LOVED about our stay:
- BRUNO! #bestdogever
- Well-appointed, luxurious, and spacious rooms similar to a studio/apartment
- Breathtaking panoramic views (witnessed the strawberry moon!)
- Delicious in-home meals prepared by private chefs
- Watching the shepherd and his/her sheep
- Hanging out in the Porchalia aka family room aka great room
- Conveniently located near the wonderful towns of Pienza, Siena, Montepulciano, Montalcino
- Buonconvento! We went into this cute, unspoiled town 1-2 times per day for our groceries and access to quality local goods
- Magical night sky lit by the moon, stars and fireflies
- Exploring the grounds in golf carts, definitely a hit with the kids (and adults!)!
- Canoeing in the lake, also a hit with the kids!
- Generous hospitality!!!
- There is so much more, and better to leave some element of wondrous surprise
Lastly, we would consider Patrick to be the ultimate star because his passion and strive for excellence is evident through the warm attention to detail throughout our stay. And, it also extends to his dream team -- Maria, Gregori, and Rafal!
We couldn't be more impressed with Agricola Neci, and can't wait to return!
Our family is lucky enough to have traveled widely, and we have no hesitation in saying that Agricola Neci is one of the loveliest properties we have ever stayed in! It is entirely self contained, with a superbly appointed kitchen, a private lake and picnic spots within its large area - despite the many attractions in the area, we never left the property in our 5 days there!
Patrick is wonderfully warm, helpful and charming - and his support team at the residence excellent as well.
We will be back!
If Tuscany is your destination, Agricola Neci will be hard to match😊
I’m having trouble coming up with enough superlatives to describe Agricola Neci. From the time we drove through the electronic gates controlling access to the property we were blown away. The villa itself is gorgeous. With reclaimed bricks and tile roof it looks like it was built 200 years ago but it is actually a new structure with all the modern conveniences a traveler could expect. Comprised of four individual suites; each with a sitting area w/ fireplace, a kitchenette, separate bedroom and modern bath, they each offer all the comforts one could want with the added bonus of jaw dropping views. The views are just spectacular. We rushed back to the villa every evening just to see the sunsets with a glass of local wine and cheese. Although each room has a little kitchenette, there is also the porcilaia; a separate building with a commercial kitchen, fireplace, and large dining table suitable for big family meals. It was set each morning by Maria the estate housekeeper, ready for your breakfast. Shortly after, she would clean up and have it ready for the evening meal. Then there’s Bruno; le chien de residence. What a great dog! He accompanied us on all our golf cart rides and came around every evening as sunset to say hi. Your host; Patrick couldn’t have been more accommodating. Even before arrival he answered every email and assisted with all our requests. The location is very convenient for day trips to Siena, Montecito, Montepulciano, Pienza and other Tuscan towns but the big surprise was Buonconvento, the closest town. A wonderful little village unspoiled by tourists with nice little restaurants and shopping for all the provisions you could need. All in all, Agricola Neci gets five stars for a relaxing and scenic family vacation.
Nothing I could possibly write would do justice to this magnificent property. The host Patrick outdoes himself to make you feel welcome, takes hours to show you around his fabulous location where no costs have been cut to make the guest feel pampered and well taken care of. A wonderful staff, a gorgeous property full of amenities, located 6 kms from a charming village with innumerable first class restaurants and villages within easy driving distance. Como,eteky exceeded our expectations, the site description does no even start to do it justice. Probably the bst family vacation we have had. Thank you !
We wanted to know the Tuscan visiting the famous villages and having the opportunity of enjoying the countryside. Our expectations were exceeded thanks to our stay at Agricola Neci. The design of all the rooms is different and you always find in each room a distinct and surprising atmosphere. The size of the rooms is quite big and you have all needed items and facilities. And the views from the rooms are amazing. The resort has all the facilities. The electrical cars allow you to visit the huge and spectacular property, including the lake, and to submerge you to the actual Tuscan environment. You have at your disposal bikes and easily you find several paths and roads to ride. And on top of all, we had a helpful, useful, professional, careful and attentive treatment from Patrick and all the staff, always prepared to provide you with a quick and the best response.
Agricola Neci is located just 10 miles away from Montalcino, the medieval village worldwide renowned for its Brunello wine and wineries tours are definitely a must of the area.
