“Lovely, authentic spot with wonderful hosts”

The pictures on the website don't do this place justice, it's a really lovely, authentic property on a working farm. Our hosts were super friendly and helpful, nothing was too much trouble. They made a birthday cake for one of our group and provided Prosecco. Outside space was excellent with a large patio for outside dining and fantastic pool. Plenty of room in bedrooms, wifi worked very well (essential for teenagers!), kitchen/living/indoor dining was small but adequate. The location was great with lots of amazing Tuscan towns within easy reach, as well as Lake Tresimino. We booked a meal on site for the evening of our arrival which turned out to be a great idea as we arrived late and very tired. We thought it was pricey at 20 euros a head, but actually it was such a fabulous meal that it was well worthwhile. We had also booked breakfast, another good idea as it meant no hassle over buying food when we first arrived, or taking it with us. The breakfast was great too especially the toasted cheese and ham sandwiches and home made jam tart, and top value at 5 euros each. You do need a car to stay here as it is tucked away in a nice quiet spot.

“Perfect location and THE TOMATOES!!!!”
Reviewed November 8, 2013 for a stay in August 2013

We stayed here for a week In August 2013. The cottage was much much larger than we thought, with sufficient space for 8. Lovely outside area for braai and el fresco dining. - and fantastic pool area, with lovely views of Cortona, for those very hot days before we realised we needed to cut our days in half! It is a working farm and we quite enjoyed picking the plums adjacent to our cottage as dessert. Conveniently located close enough to grocery stores, and also for Tuscan exploration - Orvieto, Siena, Montepulciano, etc.
We quite enjoyed interacting with the Italian family - they helped us a lot in terms of translations when we got stuck at the post office. The fresh produce from the farm supplied by the owners was literally picked off the "vine" and out of this world delicious.
Loved our stay and hope to return.
