With our 12 day Italy trip coming to a close Tuscany was to be our grand finale. We stayed for three nights in this agritourismo in the heart of Tuscany and it totally exceeded all our expectations. We simply love it.
The apartment is wonderful - tall ceilings, classic wood furniture decor, kitchen with stovetop and a well stocked breakfast pantry with juice, bread, spreads, milk, and an espresso machine and microwave. The bathroom is very clean, modernly renovated with a skylight and washing machine.
The view outside is a stunning panorama - in fact, even just by looking through the bedroom window you can see classic postcard views of Tuscany's rolling hills and Cypress trees. In the evening, we opened a bottle of local wine and sat by the table outside to relax and enjoy the sunset over the Val d'Orcia.
The owner Vilmo is a very welcoming, friendly and open guy who is passionate about showing his guests a silce of the Tuscan lifestyle. He makes sure that everything is all right with the apartment, and provided us with a folder of information he wrote himself with handy information of the local area such as where to park for free when visiting the hill towns, and food recipes for local cuisine to try.
Being an agritourismo this is a working farm, with farm produce that can be purchased by guests and is also being used by the local restaurant in Monteccheilo. Since we liked the food there very much, on checkout day we bought the same farro used in the risotto and olive oil to take back to the UK.
Our next trip back to Italy we really have to focus much more time in Tuscany and we would definitely come back to stay here again with Vilmo!
