I stayed here for four nights in September with a friend as part of a cooking tour. The farmhouse has been tastefully restored with a real Tuscan flair- with spacious bedrooms, bathroom common area and kitchen. The views from the farmhouse are absolutely stunning, "picture post card perfect." I made myself get up two mornings in a row just to see the sunrise. The farmhouse is located an easy five minute drive from Pienza but you feel as if you are a million miles away and living the country life. The addition of a beautiful new swimming pool is a welcome respite from a day tramping around the countryside. A few friendly cows nearby make this a most idyllic spot for relaxing and enjoying Tuscany. Pienza is a wonderful Tuscan town to explore and enjoy.
The hosts, Daniela and Marcello and their family are warm, inviting and engaging. The perfect hosts for such an endeavor. Every morning Daniela had baked a special little treat for us, as well as providing fresh fruit from her garden. Her other products and wine are available for tasting as well.
