My husband and I only stayed in this farm home one night but wished we had stayed longer. La Presura is basically at the beginning of the main, very long and windy road that takes you through the heart of Tuscany. When we arrived, we were greeted by someone other than the main clerk, but the clerk gave us a hand drawn map and suggestions for good food stores and restaurants nearby. We drove quickly into Greve in Chianti that evening and had a wondeful Florentine steak (Don't ask questions. Just get it. You'll be glad you did.) There is a grape vineyard on the property and a small trail where you can walk down to the lake. It was a bit muddy the morning I tried it and the lake was actually blocked off, but it was gorgeous nonetheless. The grounds themselves were beautiful. The bathroom was great but the shower water did leak onto the floor. I had a difficult time figuring out the climate control in the room, but I am willing to chalk that up to my lack of technological prowess than some problem with the system.
We were very happy with the Farm Home La Presura, especially for the price. It was clearly set up to be inhabited for several days at a time. There wasn't anything overwhelmingly flashy or overindulgant about the place but it was by no means roughing it either.
Book without fear!
