“Great Farmhouse and location”
Reviewed 14 June 2016 for a stay in May 2016

We had a great time visiting this Farmhouse, the location is perfect sitting in the hills of Tuscany with easy access to Volterra, San Gimignan, Pisa, Florence and Siena.

The Farmhouse is very well equipped with everything you need for a self catering holiday. The pool area is clean and well tended. The Farmhouse sits in the middle of a working farm and all of the family are extremely friendly (my 4 year old son got a ride in a tractor and he is still talking about it).

The weekly Pizza Party organised by the owner is great as the food is delicious.

I would recommend this Farmhouse to all travellers, we were a group of 5 (1 Child, parents and grand parents). Everyone loved this holiday and we will definitely return in the future.

“Absolutely brilliant”
Reviewed 6 June 2016 for a stay in May 2016

Firstly,Katia and her family are the most wonderful and friendly people you could ask to meet.I stayed in this lovely villa for 12 wonderful days at the end of May 2016.Everything you need is in the house,swimming pool outside,barbecue area,play area for kids and glorious scenery.Its location is ideal for touring Pisa,Florence,Sienna and some old and quaint villages all within driving range.There are not many owners who would invite you to their own home for a Pizza feast and that is what Katia did not only once but twice.We are certainly looking forward to returning again.We were in a family group of 4 adults and one child and had a brilliant holiday.

“A Wonderful Stay”
Reviewed 25 August 2014 for a stay in August 2014

Well equipped, clean apartment with wonderful views. The pool area is perfectly formed with enough sunbeds/chairs to go around. The apartments are family owned and we were made to feel very welcome. Volterra is a 20 minute drive away where we did our food shopping. If you are planning to visit Sienna or San Gimignano make sure you leave early enough to allow time to park. We were very sad to leave a very relaxing and wonderful holiday!

“Good base, in quiet location, from which to visit Tuscany”
Reviewed 25 September 2012 for a stay in August 2012

people found this review helpful

We had a lovely holiday here, and it was a fantastic base from which to easily drive to Siena, San Gimignano, Volterra etc. The apartment was well equipped, clean and just as described. There was a cooker as well as a hob which is not always the case in self accommodation and makes cooking much easier!
Our apartment was on the ground floor, all on one level, and had a seat in the shower/wet room, so would be perfect for anyone with a disability.
The pool was always clean and there was plenty of shade which was very welcome as we arrived to a heatwave! There are only 3 apartments here, so the pool was never busy.
The nearest village is less than 5 mins drive and has a couple of small shops for groceries, or there is a much larger supermarket in Volterra (about 20mins drive.)
We would thoroughly recommend Volterra - a fabulous walle medieval town, which we all rated above San Gimignano.
Katia and her family made us very welcome and cooked a fabulous meal for all guests one evening which was lovely. Our children (12 and 9) loved it here, as did we!
Would recommend having GPS in the car as some of the smaller roads could be difficult to follow on a map.
