Residenza San Leo
Reviewed July 6, 2013

Residenza San Leo in Figline Valdarno (20 kms south of Firenze) is a unique place to find rest and friendships. It may be tough to get there the first time for your GPS. The last kilometer is tough and dusty. Don't matter, time stands still once you're there. Patrizia is your host and the real mama for everything. Charming appartments or a little house, a great swimming pool with a unique panorama over Patrizia's olive trees. You can participate at the dinner, without any obligation. Again a great experience. We had the chance to meet there families coming from San Diego, California, from Québec Canada and even a family coming from India. And the meal offered has without doubt the best quality over price performance. Real Italian gastronomy. Take your time and enjoy it. San Leo is also ideally situated to visit Firenze (even by train) and Siena, but also Arezzo, Assisi and Perugia are easily accessible by car. Nearby is also Impruneta (authentic terracotta production) and the Chianti Route.

Room Tip: If you can get it, try to have the little house (for 3 prs). Very convenient and cosy.

A jewel, which we found thanks to Trip Advisor. An agriturismo, with shop and restaurant. Magnificent old buildings, lovely courtyard area, excellent pool. We stayed down the road in a villa and visited regularly for the fresh farm produce, freshly baked bread, wonderful olive oils, home made pasta sauce and a lovely meal. All run by the amazing Patrizia, whom most other reviewers have commented on.

Well worth a detour to find.

If you want to get away from everything, this is the place. A beautiful setting, great hospitality, peace and quiet. Comfortable rooms, nice swimming pool (even though it closed early in October), and greatly placed in the middle of the Chianti region. Patrizia has a great place, and is nice enough to share it with us. I highly recommend it!

Stayed here last year and decided to go back: what a good idea!!!
This agriturismo is the best we visited and is our favourite in Tuscany…Close to the Chianti, Firenze, Sienna and within driving distance of San Gimignano and still you are not at a busy camping site: there is peace, tranquillity and nature.
The owners are very very nice, but do not expect an very accurate planning: take life as it comes: diner is served when it’s ready and breakfast is different every day....Patrizia did not cook every day during our stay, but the new chef in the kitchen made very nice (often vegetarian) meals.
The pools is still wonderful and has a view never to be forgotten. Go eat at Dudda, go to the market and try to visit Albola...

We came back… we will return… that’s my advice to you as well…

We stayed here with another couple for 4 days in May 2012 while visiting the sites locally! You could not ask for a more relaxing place to stay! We had breakfast each day for 5 Euro with local produce only. Also two evening meals for 18 Euro each, you have a fixed menu and plenty of the local red wine.

The location is just outstanding and you are made very welcome. This is a place we will go back to. 40 mins from Florence and 75 from Pisa. If you want a quiet relaxing place to stay, you have found it here!

Room Tip: It all good here!

Hard to find any fault .Patrizia is a great hostess (and cook).The appartment for two ,Gato, was very spacious ,comfortable, clean and well appointed,both inside and out.The infinity pool was warm and the view from it unbelievable. The estate and out buildings looked just like what you imagine Tuscany to be.The option of eating very reasonably with the other guests in the courtyard at night,really seemed to work well( not least because the food was delicious and the wine included).Hard really to do the place justice in just a few words,but it doesnt get much better than this!

My family (partner , 10 month old and I) stayed in residenza Limonaia and it was lovely. It was helpful to be slightly detached from the main apartments and have a private grassy area. Our little boy loved this area as well as the pool.

Patrizia is a great host and you have options to enjoy her home cooking (not available every night) or shop in Figline Valdarno and prepare yourself.

We felt it was good value accommodation and enjoyed our daily drives to the surrounding towns and cities.

Room Tip: see website for the available apartments (each is different)
