“A Fabulous Tuscany Holiday”
Reviewed 13 June 2010

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.

You get the feeling of staying in a residence of time past while enjoying the amenities of renovated modern conveniences. The garden grounds are spacious for families and an oversize swimming pool and deck space can accomodate the capacity of two family groups at a time. I have met both German and Holland families here in the past as I have repeatedly returned to San Savino and IL Poggiolo which are both served by the same proprietors. Their efforts of hospitality make you feel quite welcome and they occassionaly offer a wood overn pizza party seved with their locally produced wine and olive oil. Overall this agriturismo serves the function of remaining in one locale during your stay in Toscana and also is remote enough to escape the common tourist traffic. The Val di Chio offers many walking adventures and the local Friday market in nearby Castiglion Fiorentino is typical of local customs that a traveler can immerse themselves into the local culture easily. Castiglion Fiorentino offers interesting local historical pursuits as well. Hiking and bicycling trails abound throughout the area. Access to the area is good by either Trenitalia or highly recommended rental car as you will need to drive to the agriturismo location for your own convenience and day trips to other places of interest. The train service is particularly nice for going to Florence, Orvietio, or Arezzo for the day. The agrituismo holiday in Italy is the best all around experience for your enjoyment of the Italian experience.
