quiet and gorgeous property

  • 5 of 5

Stayed her for one week with another couple we were travelling with. Plenty of room for 2 couples-each had separate baths and bedrooms. Perfect. It was a bit too cool to use the pool but we loved where there was privacy and the pool area was stunning. Fabio was our host as well as Urzula and they were both helpful and around to help us with our accommodations. The kitchen was easy too cook in and we even hired a chef to teach us Italian cooking. We were close to Siena and travelled by car during the day to see the sights. If you don't want to rent a larger villa that has other guests in the apartments, choose this place for privacy. The grounds were filled with herbs, vegetables, flowers, grapes,, trees... The inside is updated for modern conveniences too. Loved it !!!

Wonderful Stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay.

Urszula And Fabio were lovely hosts, with Fabio bringing bringing us figs, tomatoes, the best mozzarella and his own produced wine. Also mustn't forget the pomodoro sauce that we watched being made with Fabio's special pomodoro machine.

The property was really nice and well equipped also the pool was a very good and a decent size, much needed during the heatwave we found ourselves in.

The location is good with Siena a short drive away and good access to the Tuscan countryside all around. There some nice restaurants nearby also. For stocking up there is a co-op not too far away which Fabio took us to after we dumped our bags on arrival.

Thank you Ursula and Fabio for making our stay such a great one. Loved it.

Comfortable and fully equipped. Most relaxing.

  • 5 of 5

Great location to visit Siena and many interesting parts of Tuscany. We saw lots of Siena, including the Palio, plus Lucca, Pienza, San Gimignano, San Quirico, Greve in Chianti and Montalcino. Other days spent relaxing by the pool, which was delightfully quiet and refreshing.

Owners, Fabio and Ursula, were generous and attentive, providing home-grown produce - tomatoes, olive oil and Chianti - as well as good advice re. places to visit.

We had a wonderful family holiday with our teenage daughters.

Something to remember for life

  • 4 of 5

Hello Fabio and Urszula,We loved our stay at the Farmhouse. The location was very close to Siena, and easy drive to get to. We went to see Siena by night with Fabio as personal guide and it was amazing beautifull. The farmhouse is charming. We were very happy with the pool.We were here for a week. The hosts are wonderfull. We will remember Fabio and Urszula for life , Fabio is a great person with a big hart for his guests and Urszula also. After we unload our car, Fabio guided us to the local store. During our stay he brought us a tasty selection of vegetables and pomodori and "courgette". Fabio made dinner reservations for us at a nice restaurant where he delivers. We appreciate everything Fabio and Urszula give to us: food,wine ,olive oil but especially the good memories.

Greets from Sam,Cédric and Naomi

Bad location

  • 1 of 5

For my family (2 adults – 2 children) this place was a huge disappointment.

But I want say a few positive things also. The property owners were really kind and I have mixed emotions to write this review. In addition the apartment is also nice, clean, more equipped and modern than other Tuscan Villas.

However the location is not good and I know this can be discussed. For me Tuscany is many things – but one essential thing is the scenic landscape. Tuscany is BIG and the landscape is very diverse, from vineyards, forest to areas with almost no vegetation. There nothing positive to say about the location here in my humble opinion. When it’s 35 degrees outside and you have kids, you want to spend some time at the pool. The pool area is not at all good, it’s messy, smells weird and not a place you want to be.

We booked for one week and we spend less than 24 hours there before moving to another location.

For me this price is way too high for this place given its location and standard of the pool area.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to review your stay and we appreciate the positive comments. We're sorry you didn't voice your complaints during your stay so we could have had an opportunity either to rectify the situation or to give some context and better understanding. In any case, we'd like to address some of your feedback, to help clarify for future guests. 1. The area we're in is conveniently located all the of sought after sites of interest in the Province of Siena. Our area is dubbed the "green heart of Tuscany" by the European Union and is very special - however, Italy, along with the rest of Southern Europe, has been hit with some of the highest temperatures ever recorded this summer and as a result of the drought the landscape is not as green as it would normally be. 2. As for the "messiness" of our place, we are a farmhouse and not a residence. The success and uniqueness of our place is linked to the the fact that guests have the chance to experience the real life of a functioning farm with all the activities that come with it. Rather than hide the realities of farm life, such as the equipment, we prefer to keep it visible. This is all intention and normally appreciated for its charm. 3. About the swimming pool: we can assure you that the water is perfectly clean. You arrived earlier than was previously expected and as a result we hadn't had the time to tidy up the area around the pool. If there was an odor, we were not aware of it and if you had brought it to our attention we would have investigated immediately. Normally those who choose us do so because they appreciate our ' green ' and our ecological approach to tourism . We are sorry if you didn't feel that way and we hope you enjoyed your stay in Tuscany
