Residence La Ferriera
Ranked #2 of 2 Hotels in Loro Ciuffenna
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 21 November 2013

My wife and I totally loved Residence La Ferriera and everything about the area! First you have amazing Tuscano! Then inside Arezzo is the quaint, charming village of Loro Ciuffena with the amazing Ciuffena River cutting through the town is a sight to see!!
The biggest complaint I've seen people have is the half board. I don't know why because this includes a great buffet style breakfast with great cappucino, espresso, american coffee, cereals, pastries, breads, meats, cheese, eggs, fruit, tomatos, jams/jellies/butter/honey, yogurt, juice, and more!! Then you have the amazing dinners! Each day is a different menu with "typical" Tuscan meals of pastas and meat that are outstanding!! While the choices from the daily menu are limited, there is an "a la cart" menu if you want a larger "choice" of dishes which I chose from several times and paid no difference. Of course bottled water and wine is not included because because nobody does that. They have a great wine selection and the staff at La Ferriera, whether it's at breakfast, dinner, reception, or wherever, are exceptionally generous, kind, helpful, and hospitable! The inn is an "almost" magical and definitely picturesque place with it's rustic stone construction, clear rock bottom river, rushing waterfall, all nesteled in a mature forest. It's unbelievable!! The rooms are clean and comfortable, with everything you need and nothing you don't. They have laundry facilities, hair dryer, safe, etc.
Our only regret was that we could not stay longer! Like everyone else has said, Virginia, Maurizio, Claudio, and everyone at La Ferriera, "sei il migliore!!" Non vedo l'ora di stare ancora!! Alla prossima!!
Signore e Signora DeCarlo!!

We stayed in a huge bedroom with a living, kitchen, private bathroom, view to a river and falls, near to all the Chianti area. The food (half board) was very good and the people so friendly and helpful. Comfortable, quiet, has everything you need. I loved Virginia and her family that owns the hotel and restaurant.The breakfast was good and they always offered cappuccino complimentary. The city Loro Ciuffenna is not that great but it is near to very where by car.

We used La Ferriera as a base for our 2 weeks of exploring Tuscany and drawing, painting and photographing beautiful places and scenery. Our room with a private balcony overlooking the incredible river and waterfall had everything we needed. We always enjoyed the 10 minute stroll into the amazing and quaint city center and the Monday morning open market. The friendly staff was alway pleasant and helpful. Virginia always had a smile for us and helped us with travel plans and tips for things to see or to avoid. The hotel is a 12 minute ride to the main highway (A1) and a 20 minute ride to the train station (which we used to go to Rome and Florence). We can't wait to get back to enjoy La Ferreria again.

We enjoyed every day in that wonderful place. The weather was rainy (at the end of March 2013) but there was a great atmosphere. We got an appartment with a living room and one bedroom with a large balcon - it was a pleasure. The waterfall was a magic! There were everything we need in the kitchen. We've got a baby cot for a child. Most of all we liked the restaurant. Evening meal was delicious!!!! My small daughter fall in love with the waiters (all of them were men). La Ferriera is situated in a very good and strategic place for traveling! We thanks Virginia and the family of the owners for the hospitality! I hope to come back to that place once again!!!

We spent a week using La Ferriera as a base to explore Tuscany. The family were very helpful in recommending locations, scenic routes, and where to find parking in the major cities (Florence, Siena) Their availability and local knowledge was a big part of our enjoyable (and productive touring) time in Tuscany. It was not unusual to hear guests at breakfast comment that they had consulted the family for the day's touring options. The family are proud of their region and are keen to make your stay pleasant and enjoyable. A the end of our stay, at short notice, the staff found and reserved us a room at our next travel point in Italy.

There was plenty of private and convenient parking at LaFerriera. We normally returned around 10:00 PM, and always had parking space.

La Ferriera is a restored residence that has a history back to the early 1800s. The workmanship of the restoration is very impressive. Open beam, and brickwork, with care taken to preserve and show the original character of the 200 year history. The buildings are located in a valley with a large stream that runs through the property. A stone arch walking bridge connects the two sides of the stream. They have located a pool and tennis court part way up one of the hills (pool closed in Oct). The properties are completely on their own, 5 minute walk from the the village of Loro Ciuffenna, a vintage Tuscan experience. The hills around the property are forested, and the overall effect is of calmness and tranquility. You wake up to the sound of the stream, the forest, and occasionally bells from the village. It can be alluring, and sometimes it was difficult to leave in order to tour the rest of the region.

La Ferriera provides a good and varied breakfast, and has a very nice dinner menu. They will also make reservations for you at one of the restaurants in the village. Our kitchen had a stove and fridge, but we elected normally to eat dinner at La Ferriera or in the village - Tuscan food made by locals. The vegetables, cheeses and meats are remarkably flavourful.

We prefer authentic and rustic, and La Ferrierra delivered. Enjoy.

The facility was everything we expected. The staff was very helpfull and and efficient. Our party of 6 was required to pay half board of 1800 Euros which did not include wine or water. The menu was also limited to only 2 choices of primi and segundi even though they had a very extensive menu. The food was very mediocre. There was no indoor common area and it was rainy.

Hi, I am very sorry for your words because we try to give their best on the quality of our environment and the food that we serve. About the prices the guest must first talk with the agency because it is not should not be our problem for us. A lot of people that not speak with the agency after create problems with us and this is not right. The guest must first request such information as to the agencies, we just follow the rules.
It is not our fault if it was rainy I'm sorry, I hope you can come back soon with the sun!

I loved Residence La Ferriera. The accommodations were great, the food was superb, and the best thing of all was getting to meet the other people from around the world who were staying at the Residence. It was a haven to return to at night knowing that you had spent a great day touring the areas of Italy and then relaxing with new friends. Virginia, her family, and their staff could not have been more helpful to assist us as we maneuvered our way sampling the Italian way of life and food. I sincerely hope to return to this little haven again.

Room Tip: Loved being in a room near the water and listening to the sound of it day and night. Really missed...
