We have just returned from nearly 2 weeks staying with the Ciappi family at Casa Alle Vacche. It was one of the most relaxing holidays we have had. The accommodation is very clean. The apartment (no 5) was upstairs in the main building. It is at the back overlooking reception. A great little apartment. We didn't do big meals in... More

My wife and I stayed in 2012 and absolutely fell in love with the Ciappi farm. Centrally located in Tuscany, it was the perfect place for exploring the region, from Montalcino to Florence. Francesco was a most accommodating host. The accommodations were modest but extremely comfortable and the wine was superb. They didn't even complain about a yank hanging around... More

The day we spent at this lovely farm, where we were treated to an amazing lunch and wine tasting, was the highlight of our 3 week trip to Italy. The warmth and hospitality of the family made us feel very welcome and we would love to return for a longer stay.

Wonderful location to spend some time in a niche area of the Tuscany. Casa alle Vacche is run by a very nice family of excellent wine producers, the location is situated in a prominent area with a stunning view of the Chianti's Hill just in front of San Gimignano (5mins by car). Lovely rooms allow to re-discover the tipical taste... More

We stopped at this farmhouse on our way to Rome and we had lunch and wine tasting for at least 4 hours...One of the best experience we've had in Italy and this is our 3rd time in this beautiful country! Every single wine we tasted was world class and the food: "Oh my God". The chef (by hobby) made this... More

My Mum and I have been coming back here for about 12 years now. We absolutely love this place. It is relaxed, tranquil, peaceful, great comfy accommodation and incredibly friendly family who we have had the pleasure of getting to know over the years. The apartments are immaculate and the pool is beautiful and refreshing. Casa Alle Vacche is in... More

We stayed at one of the two big apartments that have very big (6*8 m^2) porch .with the best view. The farm house has... More

This was the Tuscan hillside retreat I had dreamed of. The road up is a little narrow and daunting, but the location is stunning - on a hillside amongst vines and olive trees. Casa Alle Vacche is a working vineyard and produces olive oil - we were offered wine on arrival, but sadly were so hot we opted for water!... More

Casa alle vacche is set in an area of rural beauty. The accommadation is simple, but splendid, the warmth if the welcome is genuine and unparalleled. Senora Nella speaks no English, but finds ways of communicating everything by gestures. The vineyard produces lovely wine and the most excellent olive oil, and eating al freco in the moonlight was delightful. Only... More
