We stayed here in Mid- November, a beautiful Agriturismo ( Accomadation on a working farm ) right in the heart of the tuscan country side.
The grounds and facilities were out of the top draw - lovely swimming pool.
The rooms were very spacious and nicely furnished, definately no short cuts on the quality here.
Breakfast was most pleasant and stood you in good stead for the rest of the day - loads of homemade cakes and tarts by the mother of the household.
Francesco and the staff were very helpful by recommending restaurants and places of interests.
We took a walk down to the olive mill and were given a tour by Francesco, very informative and interesting.
Pienza is only 1 km away and a nice place to head for an evening meal.
