This agriturismo was a great find in Italy. My wife and I stayed here for four nights, and were very pleased to be here. The grounds are absolutely beautiful, looking out over the rolling hills of Tuscany. The room was modest, but that was what we expected, so no problem at all. The food was a complete surprise - we had one of our best meals in Italy at the farm, complete with fresh vegetables, home made pasta, fresh ricotta, and the best limoncello we had in Italy. For that matter, the ricotta at breakfast was the best I've ever had as well.
The staff was extremely friendly and accommodating - even though most of them did not speak English they did a great job of making us feel at home and taking care of our needs. They were able to do our laundry for us, for instance, for a minimal charge, which we felt was above and beyond the call of duty.
The farm itself is completely charming, full of animals from dogs, to cats, to donkeys. My wife, who was missing her cat, especially enjoyed morning feeding time, when all the cats lined up for breakfast.
One thing to keep in mind as you plan your stay is that Fattoria Lischeto is relatively far from any major roads. We used this farm as a base for our five days in Tuscany, and drove from here to Pisa, Sienna, Chianti, and everything in between. The drives were very picturesque, but they were on the long side - it was generally 90 minutes on winding roads to get to our destination.
That said, I do highly recommend this farm for your trip to Tuscany!

A view not to be missed during the sunset, the reflection of the sun that bounces off the cliffs which creates a spectacular show of colours.
