Overlooking the Medieval town of San Gimignano Raccianello is a beautiful, warm, well kept treasure in Tuscany.
The agriturismo is based on a full operating olives and grapes farm, producing its own olive oil and wines. The latter was placed in our apartment at arrival as a welcome gift. Lovely after cooling a few hours in the fridge!
We stayed in one of the 2 air conditioned apartments; Iris. Yes, my co-writer below is right about the rather small shower cabin. In order for it to be truly relaxing it could be slightly bigger.. And yes, the shower itself had some problems staying in the holder. But hey, this is Italy, not Germany!!
The apartment was nicely kept, had plenty of room and an airy feeling to it. One of the bedrooms had full view of San Gimignano, nice! So yes, the pictures kept on their own website show you the real thing!
Part of the agriturismo experience is the availability of a vegetable garden from which the guests can harvest their own fresh ingredients for dinner. Also at your disposal are 2 BBQ areas, a laundry facility, hot tub, nice ‘endless’ pool and Mario, the ‘grounds man’ with a nice story every day again.
On a weekly basis the owners prepare a nice home cooked dinner to be enjoyed together in the small restaurant. A real treat prepared by ‘Nonna’.
There was only one ‘but’ to all of this. During the summer months a ‘Festa’ might take place in San Gimignano (check Google before booking!). When this is on, it results in quite some background noise as there are live performers on a daily basis between 9.30PM and midnight, not all of the highest quality…
Outside of these Festa weeks, we will be back for sure!!
