Such an interesting place and experience.
The family which run this are great and friendly.
The food is fab - the breakfast goes on for ages and was the best we had in Italy. The evening meal (if you can have one) is out of this world and comes with endless wine. The wild boar salami is amazing.
The wine made here is excellent and good value - we only had a couple of better wines anywhere in Tuscany.
The sprawling estate is so picturesque if a little rustic (in the rooms).
We were two adults and a 4 year old and they put us in a 3 bed apartments (guess we were upgraded).
It is really good value - they don't hit you with any extras (didn't even charge for our little one's food).
No A/C, but heat doesn't bother me.
One night it did pour with rain and the electrics shorted out while we were cooking. I managed to find the owner who rigged up an extension lead. The place could be world-class with some investment, but I doubt they'd see their money back and it would put it out of our price range and lose its charm.
The pool and facilities in general are great.
We stayed away from the main entrance so were not bothered by wandering coach tourists.
I would go back in a heartbeat.
