“Great experience of authentic Tuscany”
Reviewed 16 August 2014

We had two fab weeks here enjoying the relaxing pool, scenery from our balcony and the great food. Gianluca and his family are very welcoming and you can buy local wine, olive oil and order home cooked Tuscan meals brought to your door. They also fire up the pizza oven twice a week ! If you're looking to relax in rustic but adequate accommodation, this is a must.

Spent nearly a week here as a part of our honeymoon.
There is no enough space here to describe how awesome this place is and the owners!!!
Shortly:
- Quiet location, shocking flora and fauna
- Nice overlook to the Tuscany hills from the typical and charming old style apartment
- Swimming pool, wi-fi, free archering and table tennis, possibilities to ask for local foods prepared by the familiy (recommended!)
- You can buy excellent quality wine and extra virgin olive oil at the reception (most probably you will get a free sample at arrival)

Could spend my whole life here :-)

We stayed here for 10 days June/July 2013 and we were very happy that we chose Il Lupinaio and very sad to leave.The appartment was genuinely"old world" not just pretending to be so,basic but very clean and the kitchen contained all the utensils needed for cooking and eating.The thing we really liked was the fact that there are no Tv's or Radio's here which is a great idea and very original.There is a good WI-FI connection though.Every appartment has its own patio outside where you can sit down and have your breakfast and dinner(which is what we did every day) and have a glass of the host's excellent red wine while watching the beautiful Tuscan sunset and breathing in the scent of Jasmine.The gardens are absolutely stunning,with a great variety of all kinds of different trees,shrubs and plants and of course,the olive grove.Appart from the regular cutting of the lawns,everything else from the vegetation is well managed but not manicured and left as it should be.There is a cute little playground behind the farmhouse for toddlers, shaded by the trees.The pool is also nice and clean and very inviting,with a shallow paddling pool part for the tots.The views from here are stunning.Best and most important of all,the hosts are the most genuinely nice,friendly and helpful people that made us feel most welcome and were helpful in every possible way.They really made us feel at home and we feel that we have made friends for life.Gianluca even took us on a tour to the sheep farm nearby which would be great place for kids to visit.They cooked the most amazing pizzas for us in their wood fired oven,all of them are great cooks.The other great thing is the location of this place:every town that you would like to visit in Tuscany is within 30 mins-1hour or so of driving.This is not a luxurious,but the most genuine and authentic Tuscan country retreat which is located in the most peaceful,beautiful and romantic settings.We can't recommend it highly enough and we can't wait to go back,absolutely love it.Thank you Gianluca and family

This agricoltura was fantastic! We stayed here for almost two weeks. The surrounding is beautiful, Tuscan nature with it's typical colors. The view is great, you can see kilometers of Tuscany all around you.

The apartments are nice and clean, with enough distance from other apartments. All apartments have a large balcony. The family who lives there is very friendly and gave us good advise regarding the area, where to eat or what to visit, et cetera.

The pool is nice, large and quiet, with enough beds for all guests to lay on and create their own private space to relax in. Wifi was good.

We are going back next year to this fantastic place!

An on great location in Tuscany the Gasparini family has created a very romantic place to be. The appartments are nice. The swimmingpool is okay for a little swim for children and their parents. If you want you can order great italian food from the family anti pasti, pasta, pizza made in their own wood oven.
We had a wunderful time there. Go there and find out yourself. Eric & family

We have been here twice now with our young family and found it to be a wonderful place.

It's run by Gianluca and his family and they all do a marvellous job of welcoming all their guests and helping with anything they require.

There are 8 apartments of varying sizes. Whilst spartan and rustic, they are very clean and feel like the real Tuscany!

The pool is by far the best bit. It's large, clean and has a shallow baby area. It really catches the sun all day long. You can have a morning dip or stay in it until sunset. Beautiful views of Tuscan hills, lined with Chianti vineyards. Absolute bliss.

The apartments are set in several acres of the most serene gardens/countryside. There is a recently equipped children's play area, an archery range (not near the play area!) and several walks and hideaways within the grounds.

All apartments are wifi enabled (strong and reliable signal) and Gianluca and his family will cook for you every night, if required. It's delicious and authentic Tuscan cuisine. Very affordable too.

Pisa is 30 min. Livorno 30 min. Lucca (best town in Tuscany and anyone who disagrees hasn't been) is 50 min. Florence and Siena both 1h+. Motorway is easily reached as are all main arterial roads in the vicinity.

You need a car, but this is the perfect base for exploring Tuscany.

My family and I will be coming back for years. Love Italy. Absolutely love Tuscany. Most of all we love Podere Lupinaio.
