We saw that place back in 2009 on Channel 4 and my wife being pregnant at the time we thought we should go there one day. 4 years on, we went to Tuscany in October and stayed for a few days at the farm.
The stay was exceptional! I had high expectations and they were all easily met by the hosts!
- Our 8 months old had homemade food prepared for him every single night. He truly enjoyed it and could not stop eating.
- Our 4 year old daughter also enjoyed the food but she had even more fun feeding the animals! (sheep, horse, chickens, handling rabbits and guinea pigs)
- We (adults) loved the food, wine (organic chianti made on the farm) and the care the family took to host us for a few days.
The only thing we regret is that we didn't stay long enough. It is close enough from Florence and Pisa (45mn roughly for both) and it is therefore possible to go to those cities on a day trip.
The room we had was quite rustic but we found it refreshing. We wanted a complete switch off from our daily routine and it achieved just that.
Price wise, I initially found the price slightly steep. After the stay, I can only say that it is actually really affordable. Considering the quality of the food and the quietness of the tuscany country side, I find much more affordable and enjoyable than staying inside Florence for example.
As a final note:
- Did we like it: Yes
- Will we go back: Certainly and for longer this time
- Do we recommend it? YES!
