The location of La Pievina is absolutly amazing. The view from the garden is really beautiful, and with a book and glass of wine very relaxing.
In our opinion the room wasn't so great. It was hot, dusty and moisty because it is hard to ventilate.To keep the warmth out you have to leave the double doors closed during the day. These doors are the only way to ventilate the room. At night you can open the doors for some fresh air, but then you shouldn't be afraid of all the bugs and insects that like to visit your room
Next to that problem the bed was very old en not very comfertable.
The fact that the owners of La Pievina didn't speak a word of English made it hard to communicate. Any questions that we had could not be answered. With some help and the little Italian that we speak there were no problems, but we missed just a little bit of communication.
Maybe we have the wrong idea about 'agriturismo', but we found that the only 'agri-part' was the location. The farm next to La Pievina produces wine and olive oil (we think), but there was no possibility to see, taste or buy any of their products. The language barrier was maybe part of that...
All toghether our three days in La Pievina were okay, for the biggest part because of the location.
The accomodation was oke, but by far not as great as we tought...
