This Farmhouse is just minutes from the Highway and is centrally located about 18 minutes drive from Sienna. We used the GPS Coordinates N 43 18' 52.62" and E 11 26' 16.30". After you reach this point keep driving another minute up the road and turn at the 1st right. You will see the sign and the dirt road. The farmhouse is a beautiful building, quiet and private with the picturesque Tuscan countryside all around. The suite itself was very large with a kitchenette and bedroom but quite small bathroom. Everything was very clean and well maintained. Nicola is a wonderful and gracious host, but be warned, there is no English spoken here. The breakfast in the morning was in the dining room on the ground level of the building. It was a delicious Italian style breakfast. Highly recommended and we would certainly stay at this location again.
