Agriturismo La Collina dei Lecci
Reviewed June 6, 2011

We traveled in Italy for 2 weeks, and our 3 nights/4 days in Tuscany were a highlight among many highlights. The authenicity of Agriturismo La Collina dei Lecci was a delight and contributed greatly to our overall very positive visit to Italy. The room we stayed in was in the upper level of the relatively new dwelling where the guests stayed, and was very clean and spacious. There are 3 private rooms with private baths on the upper level, sharing a common area. The view of the Tuscany hillside was spectacular. The grounds including the olive trees and original farm buildings also really gave us a true feel for this part of Italy. The owners could not have been nicer to us in terms of making the reservation, and welcoming us to the room. The homemade breakfast and service made us feel special. And the rate for the room was a great value.

This is a perfect place to stay to experience the hill towns and nearby cities of Siena, Florence, and Pisa. We stayed in the one bedroom apartment which appeared to be recently constructed and very well maintained. It was very clean and comfortable, had a fully equipped kitchen, and a beautiful working fireplace. The scenery is absolutely breath-taking and the resident dogs walk with you in the morning as you go to breakfast. The warm family that owns the agriturismo and operates the farm is genuinely interested in making sure that you have eveything you need. Although there can be a slight language barrier, we were able to communicate well with them. Teresa is well versed in English and is only a phone call away in case there is a language barrier with her parents.

Breakfast was included and was served daily in the main house by Rosa. Sometimes her husband Pepe was also present. They gladly shared the fruits of their farm (honey, olives, cheese, olive oil, and wine) with us.

This is a perfect place to stay if you want to enjoy experience the beauty of Tuscany in a quiet, friendly, and truly Italian atmosphere.

We spent the first week in May in San Gimignano close to Siena in Tuscany. It was an ideal holiday because it is not yet high season but all the hotels and restaurants are open so it's easy to just find a place to stay without too much hassle. We stayed at La collina dei lecci, 7 minutes by car from San Gimignano. It's a tiny complex of 3 apartments and we chose the Sasso flat with 3 double bedrooms 2 bathrooms (one ensuite) and a small but fully equipped kitchen. The flat has a very Tuscan feel to it, with stone walls and wooden beams, it's neatly tucked away in the hills and close to a working farmhouse belonging to the owner's parents . Olive trees and vineyards surround the area and it is lovely to take a walk first thing in the morning accompanied by the owner's 2 dogs Lola and Ulisse. From San Gimignano there are loads of day trips each offering something totally different. A day trip to Siena is a must but drive carefully as the road to the city is very busy and park right outside the city as the roads within the walls are very narrow , or take a driving tour south of Siena along the ''Crete Senesi'' for those breathtaking views of typical Tuscan hills, or spend a day in the Chianti Classico area visiting all the small villages (Castellina in Chianti is a little jewel) and stopping at every vineyard for a taste of Chianti. Tasting is normally free if you buy at least one bottle of wine. Another day out is visiting the town of Pienza lovely on its own but blessed in addition by endless shops selling wild boar salamis, pasta and pecorino cheese...an absolute must.
