I am an expat living in Florence, Italy and this past weekend I had relatives come to visit. We decided to stay at this amazing agriturism for three days. It was a true dream holiday. All around us was like we were living in a painting. The location was perfect (1 km from Pienza) and half way between Montepulciano and Montalcino. Great cantine all along the way where you can buy Brunello and Nobile di Montepulciano. The place was very clean and very comfortable. They offered an amazing breakfast including homemade cakes. They have their own oil and we got to visit their oil mill and what a place!!! This agriturism basically lives off the grid. With all the remains of the olives (pits,branches,leaves) they are able to produce their own energy! Not only were we staying in an amazingly beautiful place but also very forward looking. Truely amazing!! Very corteous staff (family owned) lovely large apartments complete with kitchens. They also had a gorgeous pool that unfortunately this time of year was not in use however, if I ever plan a short holiday with friends or family in the summer I would go back there in a heartbeat. I highly recommend this place for people who love Tuscany and are interested in the forward looking mentality of this family regarding the preservation and evolution of their farmland.
