We recently spent 3 lovely days and nights at this agriturismo south of Volterra and Pomarance in Tuscany. The farmhouse is just as described on the website and was the perfect place for us to relax. We had the place to ourselves. Our rooms were spacious and clean and the beds were comfortable. Every room has its own private patio, which I could have sat out on all day if the weather had been just a bit warmer. Our kids (12 and 9) really loved playing with Stella and Pepe, the dogs, and the numerous cats that roamed the property. The two donkeys and the horse, Ballerina, were more than happy to eat the carrots that the kids insisted we buy at the grocery store in Pomarance. It is also an ideal location from which to take day trips. We stopped at Pisa on our way in from Florence. Then we spent a day in San Gimignano and a half day in Volterra.
Dinners were a delightful surprise. We had originally planned to eat “at home” only on the first night, but the food was so good, we didn’t see the point of going anywhere else. It was kind of exciting to show up for dinner at 8 p.m. without knowing what was going to be served. Even our boy, who is a very picky eater, tried almost everything. On the first night, we had home-made gnocchi with tomato sauce, stewed rabbit, roasted potatoes, broccoli rabbe and a lemon ricotta cake with strawberry sauce for dessert. The highlight of our second dinner was the amazing linguine with pecorino and rosemary. The kids loved the chocolate mousse. On the third night we had a cauliflower soup as the starter. I am normally not a fan of cauliflower, but this soup was good! The herbed pork roast and the roasted fennel were also delicious. For dessert we had apple streusel with vanilla ice cream. The kids were happy to have chocolate mousse leftovers from the night before. I’m so glad we stayed for dinner each night because if we had “gone out” we would have just stuck to foods we were familiar with and would have missed out on this delicious and authentic Tuscan fare.
Our family would absolutely come back to this agriturismo for another visit. We look forward to enjoying the pool next time, and I really want to wander down the country lane a bit farther when the weather is warmer.
