We had a great holiday week in L'Incrociata. Beautiful place, great pool, very cool inside the building (apartment Arco) and besides us only two other apartments rented out. Great place when you want to relax. Everywhere around there are hills with trees and wildlife in abundance: lizards, butterflies and we even saw deer and a pheasant. The apartment is nice and spacious, the bathroom could have been better cleaned. You can park the car nicely under a roof. The road to the complex is a few hundred metres through sand. The closest village Ambra, where you can buy all necessary things, is a few kilometres away.
I can't speak highly enough about this villa! It far surpassed our expectations when we stayed there in august 2016. About 1.5-2 hours drive from Pisa airport (hire a car - its worth it). Very easy to find with the use of satnav. We stayed in the Mirabelle villa which is separate to the main building. It has a large garden which is enclosed by fences and gates. The pool section is fenced off as well. In the house there is a living room as you enter with a dining room leading to a small kitchen. The kitchen has a dishwasher and fridge freezer. Past the living room the other way, there is a twin bedroom and bathroom. Below this level is the basement. On one side is where they keep the washing machine. On the other side is a double bedroom. Onto the upper level of the villa is a large double room and another twin room. There is another bathroom on this level. Good points - great sized pool, fantastic views, close by to restaurants and shops. Bad points - hard to say really. We got a few bites from bugs around the pool area, so bring lots of repellent. Lots of people commenting about the dogs barking through the night. I am a very light sleeper and heard them during the night, but I was the only one. Bearing in mind that I was also the only one who woke up to hear earthquakes in the distance! Recommended local places - train station in Bucine (less than 10 mins drive). Use this if you want a direct train to Florence. Do NOT drive in Florence! You are about a 40 min drive from Siena - very easy to find and good parking. Large market on a Tuesday. Very good resteraunts. We visited Siena twice. Resteraunt in Ambra (5 mins drive from villa) called Alla Corte Di Bacco. You need to book as they are highly popular. They speak good English. Food is amazing and well priced. Very bohemian little place.…
We've spent a week at Villa Miravalle back in 2013. It's a great place for family vacation - we've tried excellent local wine, great Tuscany food and even baked our own pizza in the pizza oven. Kids enjoyed the pool and adults had an excellent chance to relax. I can really recommend this place, I think the best recommendation is a fact that this year we're coming back to Agriturismo Incrociata.
We do enjoyed spending our holidays in Agriturismo Incrociata as it offered us both a beautiful location for relaxing moments in the green, and a central connection for visiting cities like Florence, Siena, Cortona and the tuscany countryside. The building is a group of old farmhouses very comfortable and properly furnished with tipical tuscnay furniture and cosy paintings. Everything is surrounded by a green enviroment with a beautiful swimmingpool looking on the valley. The wine selection is excellent, coming directly from the surrounding vineyard properties of the Agriturismo's owner. So, I do strongly suggest Agriturismo Incrociata!!
We stayed here in for 4 nights and had a wonderful time, we didn't want to move on to our next destination. The apartment we had was clean and contained everything we could possibly need. Sitting on the porch after a day of sightseeing and relaxing with a glass of wine and only hearing nature and the laughter of my daughter was bliss. We used this as our base and did day trips to the cities nearby which worked so well for us. We made great use of the pool, swing set, hammock and foosball table. I highly recommend this place and would be happy to return anytime with my family.
