This Tuscany farmhouse is not to be missed. Our two night stay here in July was perfect. The large one bedroom apartment was beautifully finished and the great kitchen had everything necessary to cook two great dinners at "home". The infinity pool, the well-manicured grounds, and the Tuscany hillside views were beautiful. The friendliness, generosity and helpfulness of the owner's son was an added bonus. We enjoyed the free wine and olive oil which were made locally on the farm. We very much enjoyed the seclusion provided by the farm's location but yet only a short 2-3 minute drive to Pienza. Even though all of the rooms were full, we felt like we were all alone. At night we were able to sit outside in the courtyard alone enjoying a glass of wine and the stars. The breakfast buffet was amazing and truely homemade. The panna cotta with fresh berries was to die for!!! The only minor drawback was there was no AC, or even a fan to help move the air around. Thus, it was necessary to leave the windows open, which allowed us to hear the annoying sound of cars driving over the crushed stone driveway right outside our bedroom window. However, the many many positives of this beautiful property greatly out number these minor negatives. We would love to return and stay longer!
