What makes this Farmhouse unique
The ground has amazing colours and is so maleable that anyone passing over it leaves tracks. Livestock paths, numerous vineyards, olive-groves, truffle-grounds, and lush forests with oaks, ilexes, broom and hawthorn can be seen here.. Travelling along the rural dirt roads,often located on hill ridges, seems like sailing among waves of earth and, when overlooked by an open sky and pushed by the wind, one feels very small.

Had a wonderful time
Beautiful property in a beautiful setting. Enjoyed day trips to Florence, hill-top towns, and wineries. Cooking lesson with Marcello a lot of fun and as well as informative.
If I could give this stay/experience a 10- I would! Everything was perfect and Sylanna and her family were so very nice and accommodating! They made you feel like family. The apartment was VERY clean and decorated beautifully! The view was even better! We could have stayed forever! Lol
We also took Marcello’s cooking class. It was a wonderfully experience and I highly recommend this!
Thanks so much for your wonderful review!
We wish you and your beautiful family all the best....and to see you again in the future.
Silvana and Piergiorgio with Marcello
Podere Cunina was the perfect home base for our extended holiday in Tuscany.
Our family, two adults and two boys 8 & 9 years old, absolutely adored the property that we chose based on its location. The host family was welcoming and attentive even though they were busy running a working farm. We spent a day with Marcello learning to cook a menu of traditional Tuscan dishes and this was a definite highlight for the whole family. We just left and our boys can't stop talking about our next visit.
Dear Justo and family, we are so happy to read your wonderful review! Thanks so much.
We hope to see you again in the future! The best greetings from Podere Cunina.
Can’t wait to go back!
We only had 2 nights to visit but I’m glad we did. Place is beautiful and relaxing. Silvana and Giorgio are amazing. The garden is incredible. Clearly a lot of work and love went into this place. Thanks for a great stay!
Dear Leigh, thanks so much for your wonderful review. Piergiorgio is so glad to read it. He works a lot in the garden! Your words are a great satisfaction .
The best greetings from Cunina to you and your family.
Tuscan Apartment with Amazing Views/Family!
Silvana and family came highly recommended by a friend who had stayed there before. The location, apartment and family interactions did not disappoint!!! The location is perfect for those touring wineries. The view from the top of their hill is spectacular. We enjoyed the sunset each night with a great bottle of wine. Loved having a full kitchen in our apartment as we cooked several nights at home. Take advantage of their beautiful outdoor grill area. We took the cooking class with their son Marchello. It was so much fun and we loved being able to sit down and eat our creations with the family. Marchello also took us around to wineries for two days. It was great to leverage his knowledge of wine and the region. Be sure to purchase some of their yummy honey and olive oil to cook with while you are there. They also ship!! We have already placed our orders. We can't wait to return to this lovely Tuscan gem and the wonderful family that owns it!!!
La propriété met en valeur tout ce que la Toscane authentique a à offrir, calme et beauté.
Nous avons connu la meilleure expérience de tout notre voyage de vingt-sept jours dans le nord de l'Italie. L'emplacement près de la région du Montalcino et Montepulciano que notre gentille hôte nous a recommandé de visiter pour se rincer l'œil en même temps que sa proximité de Sienne est idéale pour apprécier la Toscane. Bien que cette région charmante où on sent que les habitants préserveront au mieux la qualité de la terre et des immeubles nous ait ravie, nous avons fait en sorte d'assister béats au lever comme au coucher de soleil bien assis dans des coins aménagés sur la propriété même pour profiter du spectacle. Et quel spectacle !
Un régal pour les yeux et une nourriture pour l'âme. Quant à l'intérieur de la propriété, vous y trouverez des pièces d'artisanat qui vous reporteront les décennies plus tôt, tout en bénéficiant du confort moderne d'une cuisine et d'une salle de bains bien équipées. Je réserve mes derniers commentaires pour nos hôtes qui sont prévoyants, chaleureux et qui ont un attachement à ces terres de la Toscane manifeste par la culture qu'ils en font, mais aussi par leurs connaissances de ses spécificités. Au-delà de tout, la famille entière met tant d'amour à l'ouvrage de voir à tout et à tous, ils sont d'une discrétion et d'une efficacité exemplaire... Bref, ils font honneur à leur métier de faire vivre une expérience de voyage mémorable au plus grand nombre. Saurez-vous en profiter ?
Coming from northern Italy, the Freddis came to visit Tuscany and, like many of us, fell in love with the region. They were lucky and bold enough to take on the challenge of restoring this farmhouse to the south of Siena from ruin, since it was pretty much just walls when they found it
We were invited by the Freddi family to come and visit this April and have a chat over lunch. As we drove up the dirt road with a few potholes here and there (nothing our own DT-mobile, a Toyota Prius, wasn't able to handle), we concurred that it was worth it! Anyone arriving here cannot be left untouched by the stupendous views of the surrounding hills..While the photos on their website are quite spectacular, the estate is so much better in person. To be told of the views is one thing, but to actually be there and be surrounded by them and see the medieval hilltop village of Montalcino just beyond the house is certainly another. I stopped and imagined enjoying the sunset by the pool, carved out on the hill just below the house, with a glass of wine and the view: what dreams are made of!!
