Agriturismo San Michele
Reviewed 1 October 2013

There is so much to recommend this agriturismo. It has three apartments, two in the one house, elegantly refurbished in the 90s and one smaller building on its own higher up the hillside, also very well furnished and appointed.

The first things you probably notice [having wound several kilometres up the hill on a switchback dirt road] are the spectacular views across the valley with Volterra taking pride of place. Then the swimming pool, glistening clean. Inside you find the spacious apartment, [I was in number 1] squeaky clean, loads of hot water, crisp bed linen, comfortable beds. We were four but it would take 6 comfortably and a cot for a baby. 

We arrived very late at night so the views had to wait until next morning. But the welcome, even at that late hour, was genuine and warm. 

San Michele is very much a working agriturismo, producing fantastic olive oil [voted number 1 in Tuscany in 2012] and very drinkable wines. They can be bought direct from the farm but also are to be found in local shops [slightly more expensive].

Just up the hill is the fascinating Borgo della Speranza [whch has a restaurant and cafe], and above that the villa where weddings and other functions take place.
Beyond the immediate location, you can spend many hours wandering in the hills, exploring Volterra and other towns in the Val di Cecina. Have to say there was a lot of lazing around the pool in our group.
The only down-side I could see was the probability of mosquitos in the Summer. Not all of the windows are screened. And not a place for those addicted to urban noise - it is so peaceful and quiet.
