Great agritourismo in Tuscany

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay here and hope to return. The apartment was perfect for our family of five. The town of San Quirico is a short walk away and has many good restaurants, bakeries, gelato, etc. Marusca and family were always available for anything we needed. We were welcomed with a bottle of wine, apricots, and fresh eggs and sent away with plums that we are still eating in Florence. This was the most relaxing stay of our 3 week trip. Highly recommended.

Peace under the Tuscan Sun

  • 5 of 5

My daughter and I stayed in five different places on our trip, and this was our favorite! Rossano was a great communicator, keeping in touch with us before and during our stay. He was kind in so many ways. From the beginning, he offered to meet us in town if we needed help finding the place. At check-in, he provided fresh eggs from his farm along with milk and tea for breakfast the following day, since the grocery store was closed upon our arrival. There was a basket of snacks and wine from his vineyard waiting for us as well. He made it a point to check on us the first morning we were there just to make sure we were enjoying our stay, and he made a dinner reservation for us along with providing a discount card. The location itself is yards from a vineyard and olive groves. The sunsets are incredible, the air is fresh, and the location is peaceful. The town of San Quirico d'Orcia is only a few minutes by car, and Montepulciano, Pienza and Bagno Vignoni are all less than an hour away. We found the people in Tuscany to be the nicest of the places we visited in Italy, and the region to be as beautiful as the postcards show. We would highly recommend this farm in Tuscany!!

Perfect home, perfect location

  • 5 of 5

We rented the upstairs apartment with our two children and it was perfect for us. We traveled all through Europe that trip and this villa in the heart of Tuscany was our favorite part. We rented a car for the week and simply took day trips to all the different near by towns. San Quirico D'Orcia is full of cafes and restaurants. There is a Coop grocery store as well for everything you need. The food and the wine was fabulous at every restaurant we went to. At the villa we appreciated the fresh fruits, veggies and eggs that where left for us daily. We felt right at home here. It was great having a washing machine and a full kitchen to use, especially since we were traveling for a month. I hope have a chance to visit again.

Charming Tuscan home

  • 5 of 5

In March myself, husband, 2 children (age 9/12) and mother stayed for 2 nights at this beautiful Tuscan farmhouse. From the early planning stages of our trip, Rossano was a pleasure to deal with! Quick to respond and helpful via email. When we arrived in San Quirico, he met us in his car and we followed him to his rental. He showed us around and answered any/all questions. He showed us his quaint wine making room and let us enjoy a taste of beautiful rose right from the stainless steel barrel! Then, Mama showed up with a delicious homemade fruit torta to sample. I fell in love with the place immediately:) We stayed in the upstairs farmhouse which was tastefully decorated, comfortable, clean and had everything we needed. It is a very quiet and serene location and I only wish we could have stayed longer. One night we even had a barbeque dinner which was wonderful. San Quirico had a great grocery store for everything we needed. We explored Montepulciano, Pienza and Montalcino. I have travelled all over Italy and this is by far one of my favorite locations. We hope we have an opportunity to return some day and spend more time. I myself am a VRBO owner and when I book on VRBO I have very high expectations when dealing with other owners and staying in nice places. If I could give Rossano a 10 star, I would. I highly recommend this property....you will not be disappointed! Grazie Rossano e Mama!

Best, Cindy

Tuscan hospitality at its best.

  • 5 of 5

The accommodation exceeded our expectations as previewed on their web page. It has been tastefully furnished ,well equipped and within a ten minute walk to the walled city of San Quirico. The house is surrounded by Vinyards and Olive Trees, which makes for a perfect setting for Alfresco Dining.Good restaurants,Bakeries and Supermarkets are close by. There are many beautiful towns to visit including Bagno Vignoni for it's Thermal Spa, Pienza and Monticchello for the magnificent views of the Tuscan Countryside.

This two week stay in Rossano's accommodation formed part of our 3 month tour of Europe by car. We are so pleased we chose this accommodation.

Thank you Rossano, Taechinee, Mum and Dad and all the family for extending their hospitality

to include us at the dinner following their wedding. This was the highlight of our stay and we wish Rossano and Taechinee a long and happy life together. This accommodation is highly recommended if you are looking at staying in this area.

The perfect villa to explore Tuscany from.

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I have had the best time in Italy. Picking this farm villa near San Quirico d'Orcia was a great decision. The two units here are beautiful with tile floors, modern bathrooms and a kitchen supplied with everything you might need. The outside areas were wonderful for cookouts or just sitting in the sun. The views of the vineyard, olive grove and surrounding area makes this a peaceful place to stay. The town of San Quirico was about a ten minute walk which was very convenient. My husband loved the access to the bikes here and he explored many of the trails surrounding San Quirico.

Rossano and his Family made us feel like a loved member of their family. They welcomed us with a nice basket of their farm products and wine. We enjoyed the wine and bought a lot more over our stay. We were able to participate in the grape harvest and got to see the start of the wine making process. We were also here for olive harvest so we were able to do some olive picking and then go with Rossano to the olive press to watch the olive oil pressing processes. The family also invited us to three wonderful dinners that Mama cooked which we enjoyed immensely. Rossano was not only a great host but a great friend as well. We enjoyed our talks with him and he was always helpful. He let us participate in the farm activities and we learned a lot from him. He even helped us book a Brunello winery tour and then drove us to Montalcino for the tour and brought us back later in the evening.

We came and lived in the villa for two months (Sept and Oct). It was wonderful to unpack and stay in one location. This home is located in an area where we could easily take day trips to everywhere we wanted to explore in Tuscany and Umbria. We went on wine tours and lunches at vineyards. We explored hot spas both natural and the resort type. We drove over to the beach twice and explored the Maremma region. We took a Hot Air Balloon ride over Tuscany.

September and October are great months for festivals in the area so we went to as many as we could. We went to a wine festival in the Chianti region, a chestnut and mushroom festival near Mount Amiata, a cheese festival in Pienza and the thrush festival in Montalcino.

Driving around Tuscany you will never run out of amazing views and quaint hill top villages. We have been here for two months and I still haven't seen enough. We will greatly miss Tuscany and our Italian Family.
