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, a mansion house made up of 4 independent suites (each one with its private entrance, bedroom, bathroom and living room) and a common dining room and kitchen.
Agricola Neci is immersed in a 642 acres estate, where 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!

Fantastic property -- the perfect place from which to visit Tuscany!
Our family had a wonderful stay at Agricola Neci. Reading the positive reviews and seeing the photos we had very high expectations, but our experience was even better than we hoped it would be.
The location: great for seeing Tuscany. We took easy day trips to Florence, Siena, Montalcino, Pienza, and Montepulciano. None of them more than 2 hours away. Even closer are Chiusure, the Abbazia of Monte Olivieto and Buonconvento -- where you can get groceries and delicious treats.
The property: Wow. Just wow. The setting is glorious. You really feel like you have your own private slice of Tuscany. Sunsets and sunrises are amazing to behold. The villa is beautiful and has every modern convenience. It consists of a large house made with re-claimed Tuscan bricks, with separate "apartments", each with a kitchen and fireplace. But a short distance (30 feet?) from the villa is another common house, with a gourmet kitchen, and dining table, along with a barbecue grill, and patio with a table and umbrella and chaise lounges, and is perfect for gathering everyone together for meals or drinks. Fabulous.
There is a private pond that is swimmable, and two electric Club Cars (think golf carts that seat 4) for touring the hundreds of acres. Bikes are also provided.
Best of all -- Bruno, a large and friendly dog who lives with Gregorio (one of the caretakers) visited us daily. He is wonderful and we all missed him when we left.
The Host: Patrick and his staff are really great. They made feel right at home and provided touches of hospitality, such as bringing us farm-fresh eggs, that were delicious. Patrick even helped us to find a pair of local former restaurant owners who came on site and cooked for us dinner on our last night. Delicious and truly memorable!
Our only regret? That we couldn't stay for another week at Agricola Neci!
Absolutely everything was perfect. From the moment we arrived, we felt like we were in heaven.
Patrick is the most gracious and kind host I have ever met. His tour of the property was awe inspiring. The views of the olive orchards, forests, fields and rolling hills are oh-my-god beautiful. The attentive service of Maria, Gregorio and Raffa are unaparalleled. And then there was Bruno, the sweetest dog ever! Maria cleaned up after our meals and always had the breakfast table ready for us each day. Our rooms were incredibly clean. The showers are divine. The sitting rooms and kitchettes are sweet. Beautiful vistas and outdoor patios. The kitchen has everything you could possibly need. We had chefs come in for two meals and they were fantastic. We highly recommend that you book them so that you can have dinner out on that beautiful patio. As hot as it was each day the evenings were a perfect temperature with a nice breeze. Make sure you swim in the lake. We used the life jackets as a floaty devices and it was heavenly. It was as if we were the only people in the world. The San Valentin restaurant is so close and a must. The abbey is beautiful and the restaurant there is fantastic. Easy day trips to Montelcino, Montepulciano, Siena and Cortona. We toured two fantastic Brunello wineries. Patrick is a phenomenal resource about where to go and what to enjoy. Btw: he's also a sommelier! We spent a lot of time in Buenconvento and found it to be a hidden gem. It's so beautiful! The Main Street has wonderful el fresco dining, great little shops, and a fantastic bakery. We loved the wine bar, La Porta di Sotto. Job, the sommolier, is friendly and speaks English and was very patient with our weak Italian. The little grocery store (that Patrick recommended) has everything you need. And there's also a Co-op.
It was hard to leave. As a group of nine women who had come together to celebrate one another and a milestone birthday, we
chose Tuscany for its beauty, food, wine and culture. We travelled from Canada, U.S.A, Peru and Switzerland to have this week together. We can't imagine a more picturesque and relaxing place. Forever in our hearts.
Best kept secret!
The property is in great condition. Patrick is a great host and the staff is very friendly and accommodating.
The property is wonderful, with great views. The private lake is swimable and the location idyllic.
Close to Montalcino, Siena, San Gimigiano for day trips.
Leave a day or two to enjoy the property. In the late afternoon we saw Boars and deer.
My kids loved it. The rooms are set up as individual rooms. They are not connected as a proper house. This is not a problem but good to be aware.
Hope to come back soon, We want to return to this great secret corner!
This place was magical!!
I don't know where to start. I assumed this place was too good to be true but it turns out it was even better than I expected. First off it's absolutely gorgeous and kept up so well that you feel like you're at a hotel. The scenery is like out of a movie. It's perfect for kids because it's on acres and acres and acres of land for them to just run free (with Bruno, the care takers dog who is the sweetest dog alive) and there is a beautiful private lake that we went swimming in every day. Patrick the villa owner could not have been more attentive and generous. He had food prepared for us for when we arrived and he even took us into town to introduce us to the local butcher, baker, etc and showed us around. This was the highlight of our family vacation to Italy and my 8 year old son is still saying he wants to go back to Tuscany.
Absolutely superb experience.
We are a family of five (three young children) and we had a marvelous time. There is so much to do here, both on the property and in the surrounding vicinity. We especially enjoyed the pond , exploring the grounds, and making meals in the fully stocked kitchen. The property is in fact even more beautiful than the pictures suggest.
Patrick was a marvelous and generous host who was readily available to answer questions or address any concerns. His crew was equally wonderful. We recommend highly and without reservation.
First of all I will like to say that Patrick is an excellent host. The house was amazing everything was clean and in properly working conditions. This home is the best idea to rent for a large family or a group of friends, each Suite has its own private entrance, bathroom are big. The views are unbelievable. The personnel is courteous and ready to help when is needed. Also the house comes with nice bicycles, and ATV the property is huge you can go ATV in the afternoon and also you can visit the lake for a swim or a kayak excursion. You can not ask for a better place to be than Agricola Necci. Location is wonderful next to Bonconvento a small village with nice restaurants mini market coffee places. Best experience on earth. Visit Tuscany it is gorgeous. Be prepare to drive if you want to visit surrounding towns Siena is 1 and 1/2 hours from home,, Antinori 1 hour away, Montepulchiano is like 45 min drive and San Giminiano 1 hour 45 min.
Also you must go to Bani Termale San Filippo. Amazig experience.
I will suggest for best time to travel May, June, September or October.
You can't go wrong choosing Agricola Necci is to beautiful and enjoyable.
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.
