Amazing Property and Outstanding Service
We were extremely impressed with the property - it exceeded our expectations at every turn. The location was great for hitting the best wine regions, and very drivable to Arezzo, Siena and Florence.
Patrick was amazing - meeting us at the property and personally touring us through the vast acreage upon our arrival. He ensured that we were comfortable with the suites (all different layouts and WAY nicer than shown in the pictures), and the amenities of the property (bikes, golf carts, and canoes and kayaks on the property lake). We all greatly appreciated the personal attention he provides for his guests.
We were also very impressed with Gregoria and Margarita and their support for us throughout the week. They exercised perfect discretion in their daily routines (cleaning, etc.), but were immediately available whenever we needed anything. And of course, Bruno - the four-legged best friend to our entire group.
Our only regret was that we only had a week to enjoy this villa and land - we will definitely be coming back and strongly recommend this property.
We stayed at Neci for two weeks with family and friends to celebrate my husband's birthday. We had no idea the property would be so stunning. When we arrived we drove through the beautiful iron gates to the generous villa overlooking Tuscan hills. It was even better than we had imagined! We were welcomed by Patrick, the owner, and Bruno the friendly dog, who took us on a tour of the substantial property on golf carts.
The villa is extremely comfortable and each suite is very large and separate. We have very high standards and the accommodations were well appointed and luxurious. There is a separate building with a common kitchen and dining room, which worked out nicely for group dinners and parties. Patrick was available via phone to help us with any questions we had and he arranged for some chefs to come to the villa to cook for us. The property is truly a destination in itself and we spent many days at the villa swimming in the lake, kayaking, walking, and riding bikes and golf carts.
The location is really ideal if you want to tour the many towns in Tuscany, go wine tasting, etc, but have privacy and the peacefulness of the Tuscan countryside. The whole experience was like a dream and we would love to stay again next time we are in Tuscany!
Outstanding , Fantastic - Put on your bucket list!!!!
The location is stunning, the property and surrounding estate is superb, the welcome from Patrick along with his hospitality all made for an unforgettable holiday in a truly stunning environment.
Having arrived later than planned, Patrick took care of changing the restaurant reservation, which he had made initially for us, made us very welcome and arranged a time the next day for a tour of the grounds, a trip to the nearest local supermarket and artisan shops. This was invaluable information and ensured we had everything covered for the stay.
We hired in local chefs for one evening (speak to Patrick he will arrange), and it is really well worth doing - not only are they the most lovely old couple (and spoke barely no English) the food was outstanding and served with a true sense of joy. Our whole family - spanning 3 generations had a wonderful evening with great wine and food...... just perfect.
Not forgetting Bruno, the most laid back friendly hound you could wish to meet, which as a family of dog lovers put the icing on the cake.
Whenever we return to Tuscany, there will be only one place I would consider staying ..... Agricola Neci - Salut Patrick.
The Anderson Clan
We came again, this time in summer. It is a place that combines wonderful landscape, designed and modern rooms, excellent service and unbelievable hospitality. I would recommend it, but I am afraid that it will always be booked and I cannot visit it again. So better go to the next proposal... it is just half as good as this one.
Beautiful Buonconvento Villa, Tuscany Countryside
The images of the countryside and surrounding villages will bring smiles to our faces for years to come. The hospitality of the owner and his staff was exemplary. Our four couples were ensconced in luxury in individual apartments and shared the common dining areas for breakfast and catered dinners. The private estate was open for our tour via golf carts. The listing description is accurate and I cannot recommend this villa enough!
Wonderful property in the Tuscan hills
We recently spent a week at this wonderful property in Tuscany. First, we need to mention how wonderful a host Patrick Zinelli is. He came all the way from Rome to meet us at the property, but that was not all. He gave us a thorough tour of the property and grounds, invited us for a wonderful appetizer/dinner with local (and delicious) products, and the next day took us personally to his favorite places in Buonconvento (the nearest town), introducing us to the wonderful butchers, fruit vendors, and bakers in town.
The house is beautifully appointed, very clean and, for our first day, had even a great spread for breakfast laid out for us in the common room. Each suite has separate entrances, and the views from the rooms were truly unforgettable. The grounds are extensive; we spent a day exploring it, canoeing in the lake and driving the golf carts up and down the beautiful hills, with Bruno (the property's dog, a sweet and active animal that will greet you every morning and will go everywhere you go, trotting along happily!).
Gregorio and his wife, the groundskeepers, are simply amazing. Every day the would clean after us, lay the breakfast table, bring us fresh eggs from their hens, fix the beds - you name it! We called them the magical elves because all of this happened with us hardly ever seeing them. But, when we did see them, it was a pleasure; they are the nicest people ever, and it also was a pleasure to meet their beautiful daughter Anna. Gregorio even helped set up the BBQ one evening we were planning on cooking bistecca (the amazing meat from the region), brought us fresh zucchini and green beans from his garden, and the next morning it was all magically cleaned and ready to use again if we wanted!
The house is conveniently located, with many area attractions between 30 minutes and one hour away. You will need a car to stay here, but it will be very hard to extricate yourself from this place. I would have enjoyed staying more in the house, walking the grounds with Bruno and simply enjoying how time seems to slow down there...
We truly recommend this place and will be back very soon. Thanks again Patrick for everything; we will see you again!
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.
