“A room with a view”
Reviewed November 4, 2012

We loved this place!
We arrived quite late at night to a warm welcome. Our room was on the top floor and to wake in the morning and open the shutters to a spectacular view was such a pleasure.
We enjoyed every aspect of our stay. The property and amenities, the staff, the restaurant and food, all of it.
I've just bought a lottery ticket with the hope of winning just to book a permanent room for us!
Go I say, soak it up and enjoy the best Tuscany has to offer.

We stayed here as a couple first week of Sept 2012, at their wonderful Morellino appartment (in the middle of a vineyard), which has a bedroom, kitchen and livingroom with a huge fireplace. The main house (Casabella) has a lovely pool and pool bar, where they serve drinks, snacks and lunch. Everything was just great and the people were lovely. The owner Faye Lottero gave us a tour and let us taste their wines, we were really impressed how professional they run their wine and olive oil production. We took home some bottles of their olive oil and sweet Vin Santo. Also went horseback riding at the Vallebona stables, really super (thank you Franco and Debbi). I would really recommend this place!

We went to Tuscany 5 times and we really regret that we didn' t find this place before! Wonderful, amazing place; great, family atmosphere! Fattoria placed on a picturesque hill, between the fields of olives and grape plantations! Staff was more than helpful and made us feel like family - especially Faye! The rooms were very clean and comfortable as well as Tuscan-style;-) The food was delicious! Especially Fiorentina steaks and pizza, cheeses, homemade jams and almoust every day a fresh cake!
Faye, we would like to thank you for trip around the wine plantations, degustation and stories about the making of olive oil! Of course we bought a lot of wines and oil and we will degustate them during winter evenings and remember great holidays in Fattoria Lavacchio! And next summer we wiil come back with pleasure! Thank you all for this wonderfull time!

Amazing location, rooms, food, wine and staff. Could not have asked for more. We stayed in July '12 for my Sister's wedding and had a wonderful time. The staff were very helpful especially the owner Faye who helped everything run smoothly and went out of her way to make sure our whole group was happy during our 4 to 5 days there.
Great wine tour and great tasting wine, we came home with a whole case of the different wines, just love the Vin Santo!
The location really was amazing with views over the Tuscan countryside. Great swimming pool. Lovely comfortable rooms. When we a family member in our group had an accident on the day of the wedding, the team called for an ambulance to make sure she was ok and generally looked after us well. Could not say a bad word about my time at Fattoria Lavacchio, and can't wait to go back...

Room Tip: Rooms and suites in the main house Casa Bella were great, did not see the other locations.

We really enjoyed our stay at the Fattoria Lavacchio. Our room was in the main Casa Bella house and was extremely spacious and fresh which was great. staff were very helpful and friendly. The bed was large and comfortable and there were facilities for making tea/coffee in the room. The hotel is situated on the family farm with the vineyards and olive groves surrounding it. We were lucky enough to have a tour of the wine cellars and experience the wonderful wine tasting.There is a little restaurant close by with some delicious food on offer. The beautifully kept grounds also have a wonderful swimming pool complete with jacuzzi.

Only a few niggling complaints, the items in the rooms were not refreshed over night e.g. shampoo, tea, coffees etc. It would also be very nice to have some large water bottles in the room complementary for guests.

Dear guest,
thanks for your comment about your experience at the farm, most of the guests are happy of the staff, accommodations, meal and service.
We are a farm house, there fore we do not have the chambermaid in the afternoon and night who clean and refresh the items in the room in the late afternoon and night (this is a service of a 4 & 5 stars hotel in the cities).
We hope to have you again in the future.

Excellent and memorable experience! We loved our room with its views and the personnel/staff were very friendly and helpful. It was perfect for our family with 6-year-old daughter who got to swim, ride a pony, paint her own ceramics pieces, and drink her juice from wine glasses at Il Mulino restaurant. The food, wine and olive oil were superb! Florence was just a half hour away and the driver who took us to our various destinations was excellent. We cannot wait to come back!

We spend 2 weeks at Fattoria Lavacchio in July 2012. From the moment we arrived we where in love with the location. Great view, great service from very friendly personnel. Rooms are spacious and very clean. I can recommend the cooking course and also nice for kids and grown ups are the pizza evenings. Great location to relax as well as for visiting great Italian historic locations as Siena, Pisa, Florence etc.
