In the middle of the famous and well known breath taking view of Tuscany, stands signora Mariangela's agritourism. We arrived there after 5 days in Italy: Venice, Reggi Emilia, 5 terra, La spezia. A long and enjoyable drive, but we really needed the rest. It was the right place for that matter. The place is beautiful clean and well kept. It has a nice swimming pool with a large green grass surrounding with several different types of fruit trees (like lemons, Figs, Apple and more). The area is not only beautiful it's also surrounded with plenty of small picturesque villages with nice and friendly people.
For laundry there are two options- just have use of the machine and hang the laundry by yourself – 5 euros or have them hanged and ironed for an extra fee. We bought our own food and cooked because this is something we like to do, but there is an option for breakfast.
We stayed in a spacious apartment, very well decorated and it had a real Tuscan atmosphere. There is a lot care for details.
There is a high sense of privacy and safety, due to the fact that the property is gated.
I would recommend this place for couples and families.
The only drawback was that the free internet was available only in certain places outside in the courtyard and not in the building. It took us time to come to that realization and that was a pity. Furthermore if the weather is no always agreeable – it might not always be comfortable to sit outside for "getting in touch" with the world.
We left the place for Florence with a lot of sorrow.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- THE WORKING FARMThe Agriturismo is made up of one main building with other separate independent buildings all which are based on a small hill that allows you to see the amazing view of Siena and the typical Tuscan countryside. The apartments have been restructured from old stables and out-houses, while the rooms have been built from the Casa Calonica (the old farm-house). The farm has traceable origins from 1600. It was the old threshing - floor used for straw and wheat. ... more less
