Their horseback riding sounded wonderful, but turned into simply a walk through beautiful vineyards. Would have liked to explore more and have a faster pace. Our guide only spoke italian and was not very personable.

We ate on the terrace and the food was great too. A scenic spot for sure. Make reservations ahead of time.

Eight of us reserved space for dinner at the Agriturismo Il Vecchio Maneggio for a Sunday night. We were told to be there no later that 7:45 so we could enjoy an "aperitivo" with the other guests who were also spending the night there. We were greeted by the Hostess of the facility, Tiziana who was the cook, the entertainment,... More

Like much of Italy, this was just simple but quality entertainment. Place was near San Gimignano and people were very friendly offering a local wine afterwards.

Such friendly people who welcome you into their farm and made you feel at home. We only had a hour ride through the... More

Our family went today to ride horses and it was wonderful! Good tame horses who have obviously been doing this for years. Saw rows of grapes and fields of sunflowers! Staff was wonderful. Thanks! Fletcher Family

Tiziana and her family are truely the perfect hosts. They are so welcoming, generous, and the evening meals are not to be missed. You really get a true taste of the lovely Italian way of life. If you aren't sociable and don't like food and wine then don't bother going. We don't speak Italian at all but passed 3 hilarious... More

Enjoyed it so much we went back again during our week's holiday. Lovely safe and fit horses taking you through wonderful... More

We arrived as guests but left feeling like family. My husband and I had read the reviews and had no hesitation in booking 7 nights at Il Vecchio. Our expectations were high and I worried that we may be disappointed. NO Way. It is a fantastic experience and I would recommend a stay with Tiziana and her family ( Lisa... More

We stayed with Tiziana for 3 nights and man did we EAT! Both breakfast and dinner are served here and both offer a lot of food. Breakfasts are typical - pastries, fruits, cereals, tea, juices, honey produced on site - but dinners are where it's at! It's a minimum of a 5 course meal prepared by Tiziana (or sometimes her...
