Located in the Tuscan hills above the Arno valley near Montelupo, this agriturismo is close to rail links to Florence, Pisa and beyond. We stayed in the Nido apartment which was cosy, clean and plainly furnished. While not luxurious, the apartment has a charm and the amenities were as expected. Giulia, the onsite manager, speaks English and is very helpful and accommodating.
From the property one can hike into the hills along an unpaved and little used gravel road. An hour hike of about 5 km brings you to the village of San Martino in Campo. You will find a 12th century Benedictine monastery and if you arrive at the right time (as I did) you will hear church bells on the surrounding hills ringing through the valley. Everything one would expect of the Tuscan countryside!
There is a restaurant located on the adjacent property that serves excellent food. The fare is typically Tuscan and while not inexpensive, is what one can expect to pay in the area. Local products of olive oil and wine can be purchased as well.
