“Can't wait to return”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2013

A friend recommended that we try this place out, and said that once we arrived we would not want to leave. Absolutely true, and so we visited yet again this June, this time staying for two weeks. As other reviews have noted, the location is ideal--you are in pure Tuscan countryside, and yet such a short drive to the endless wonders of Florence (and Mirella can advise you exactly where to park), with Siena, Volterra, San Gimmignano, Montalcino, Montepulciano etc all within reasonably short driving range. The produce of the farm itself is marvelous, with the holy trinity of excellent and distinctive wine, cheese and olive oil enshrined right on site (btw 2006 was a banner year). We stayed in the Gina apartment, with each of the three bedrooms its own delight; the kitchen is fine, but you can also arrange to have a cook come by with a prepared Tuscan meal that you will relish the leftovers from. Evening walks through the olive groves with the lovely farm dog Lulu were only interrupted once by a wild boar (at a safe distance), and the pool at the main site (which is where Gina is located) is the perfect place to cool off. The family who run the vineyards are so nice and Alyosha, the winemaker, is always happy to talk about the wine--there are no pretenses anywhere here. The main host is Mirella, who is such a lovely person, always helpful and thinking of your particular interests to come up with suggestions for enhancing your visit. We especially appreciated the fact that our young son loved Corzano so much the first time he visited that he was keen to return, and keeps talking about his wonderful experiences there--a sense of home.

We were guided by Silvia, who was extremely nice and told us about the wine & cheese making process while showing us around the farm. The farm was a bit difficult to find, if you want to visit..be sure to rent a car, that's the only way! After the tour we enjoyed a great lunch with products from the farm. We got to taste three wines and some olive oils. There's also a little shop that sells the products you've just tasted. We're glad that we did this, it's surely something to remember! P.s....great for couples as the place is romantic

We stayed four nights at the "Fienille" which is not located at the main property, but we had a great pool almost for ourselves (only shared with another house, and honestly, never crossed with the neighbors).
The Fattoria is located in the middle of the most beautiful Tuscan country, surrounded by Olives and Vines, and everywhere we looked around seemed like paradise.
Mirena hosted us a visit to the winery and cheese factory and offered a tasting of their world class wine, cheese and olive oils.
The location is perfect for day trips to Siena, Florence, Pisa, San Giminiano and most of the amazing sight seeings os the region.
I'd recommend this place for families as well as couples who like the concept of rural tourism.
You won't be disappointed.

We stayed a week at the Corzanello farm house and absolutely loved it. 7 very comfortable bedrooms, lovely large well equipped kitchen set amidst vineyard and olive groves. No TV or clocks to disturb your drift into the Tuscan rhythm of life.

Mirella, who coordinates the agritourism business of the farm (they produce great wine, cheese & olive oil), was fabulous at recommending restaurants, sites etc. She went above and beyond the call when my son arrived with strep throat and accompanied us to the the doctor's and pharmacy. I have never had someone be as responsive as she was.

The property is nestled at the ridge of Chianti hills and surrounded by breath taking views. The roads in this part of Tuscany are not for the faint of heart but after a day or two, you adjust and become a pro at pulling to the side or being the aggressor!

Truly a magical place.

We were a group of 2 families in the farm house and another in one of the separate houses. Quiet and stillness among breath taking views from every window. The olive trees almost touch the house. This is a working farm and the dirt on the car windshield was evidence that we were removed from the fast pace of life. Exactly what we were searching for as we began our vacation.
The house is very well equipped. The kitchen was easy to work in and includes a wood burning pizza oven outside. Wifi is available at the main house.
Mirella is warm and friendly. All requests were met with ease. We hired Lucia, a local chef, and dined effortlessly on our big farm table on the farm's amazing cheese and local reds. Can't wait to return

If you are looking to get a glimpse of what life in the Tuscan countryside is all about look no further. Fattoria Corzano e Paterno is simply the best place to visit when it comes to Tuscany's countryside. The huge estate is ideally located in the triangle Florence-Pisa-Siena, it covers a large surface that is privately yours to explore whilst you are a guest there. Despite having lived there for a long time the large very internationally minded family that runs the estate will look after you just the way you like it. You want to be left alone, you will be; you want a tour of their winery or boutique cheese production, they are happy to show you around. You don't speak Italian, no problem they'll converse with you in English, French, German, Spanish, just name it! Whether you need a small apartment or a place for a big party - they'll have it and all of their units are not only very tastefully decorated and beautifully restored, they'll also provide you with utter privacy and quietness. The charges are very reasonable - what you get is in fact priceless.
This place will truly recharge your batteries and you will leave wanting to return again and again.

I am advised I need to write 200 characters, but really the title says it all. Perfect for families, couples, solo. Mirella looks after everybody with such warmth, efficiency, generosity. The region is spectacular, near to more touristy Chianti towns, but separate. Perfect anytime of year. Delicious cheeses and wine from the farmhouse, and spoilt for choice for nearby restaurants.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Fattoria Corzano e Paterno unites neighbouring properties acquired from the historic Florentine families, the Machiavelli and Niccolini. Three distinct sectors complement each other: wine and oil, stables for sheep for artisan cheese production and agriturismo. The AGRITURISMO is comprised of four large houses positioned in pristine locations amid cypresses, olive groves and vineyards, views that have escaped the passage of time. Their restoration has maintained, with the exception of modern kitchens and baths, the original structures of beamed ceilings, open sit-in fireplaces and large, airy rooms. Situated in this classic Tuscan landscape, near fields of our grazing sheep, the houses overlook the verdant valley that lies between the two distinctive hills of the farm. CORZANELLO: With views of our vineyards on all sides, this house was once home to an artist whose atelier in the tower has since been converted into a bedroom. It sleeps twelve, has a large, roomy kitchen with a walk-in fireplace, a comfortable sitting room, six bedrooms and three bathrooms. In the garden there is a pergola for dining with a panoramic view of the valley. Nearby is the original functioning bread oven. Within a walled terrace also overlooking the valley there is an octagonal dipping pool; the larger farm swimming pool just a short walk away. GINA is an apartment in the oldest section of Casa Corzano. It is spacious and high ceilinged, set over two floors. The history of this house can be read in its ancient stone staircase and vaulted ceiling. On the ground floor is the kitchen with fireplace and a large salon with dining area. On the first floor two double bedrooms, one twin, bathroom with shower and bath and washing machine. Outside there is a private garden and the farm's swimming pool is a few meters away. CASA ERTA faces south, and has an uninterrupted view down the valley. It has been restored without compromising the large, high ceilinged rooms and beamed ceilings. It sleeps twelve, has a large kitchen with fireplace, six bedrooms and four bathrooms. Outside there is a large garden with pergola and pizza oven. FALLOCCHIO is a spacious house divided into five large apartments with one or two bedrooms, kitchenette, living room, bathroom with bath and shower. In the restoration of the house, the beamed ceilings and large rooms have been preserved. On the ground floor there is a large and well-equipped kitchen with fireplace available for communal use. The house is surrounded by a garden with a covered patio and barbeque and views across the surrounding valleys. ERTA and FALLOCCHIO share a swimming pool with panoramic views. Given the high quality of the farm's wine, olive oil and cheeses, it specialises in enogastronomic tourism and often has visiting chefs who are available to prepare meals and give cooking courses on request for guests in their houses if requested. ... more   less
