My wife and I stayed here for 3 weeks and the whole experience was wonderful. We rented the lower apartment, ground floor, of Agriturismo San Savino, which included 4 large bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and dining salon and a delightful kitchen in an adjoining building where I must admit we spent many enjoyable hours preparing and savouring the food and wines of Tuscany. The huge pool is located just steps away and is surrounded by a beautiful terrace where you can look out over the surrrounding Tuscan hillsides, scattered farms and olive groves. The location was ideal for us. We bought bikes locally when we arrived and really enjoyed the small roads and trails that can take you through gorgeous scenery no matter what direction you go. Agriturismo San Savino is located about 7 kilometres from Castiglion Fiorintini, a beautiful midieval city sitting on top of a hill that you can reach in about 30 miniutes by bike or 10 minutes by car. Market days are Friday and well worth the visit.
The owners of San Savino are Paolo Del Gobbo and his family and they truly made the stay memorable. The Del Gobbo family invited us to their home for supper one evening, and again one afternoon when we asked for a tour their olive oil business. They made us feel so welcome and at home. Each morning, although we rarely heard or saw anyone, Franco, Paolo's father, would drop by to make sure the pool was in order, answer any questions we might have, and generally make sure everything else was perfect.
All in all Agriturismo San Savino was a very enjoyable experience and one we hope to repeat again soon.
