Review 3665: Agriturismo Il Passo degli Ulivi, Apartment


Review by Elaine L from England

apartments on a farm near Paganico, Grosseto, Tuscany West


12-19th July 2008, 1 week


The location was very secluded and was one of only three apartments. It was very quiet and just what we wanted. The nearest village was 6kms away. The area was lovely and the scenery stunning.

Nearby Amenities

The nearest groceries etc were 6 kms away. The owners left a list of local restaurants that were recommended.

The House/Apartment

The apartment was a barn conversion. The farm was just at the back of the premises. It was in excellent condition and appeared to be a recent conversion. It was very peaceful. There were only two other apartments. This was a one bedroom apartment and everything was on one level. There was a large kitchen/lounge with sofa bed, bedroom with large double bed and a very nice bathroom with shower.


There was a terrace outside of the property with table and chairs for own use and a large pool complete with sun loungers. The pool was only shared with the other two apartments.

Furnishings/Cleanliness/Living Areas

The furniture was in excellent condition and comfortable. The apartment was very clean. There were four dining chairs and a sofa bed for sitting.


The bedroom was very spacious and had a large comfortable bed. There was only one bathroom but fitted out very nicely.


The kitchen had a full gas hob (four burners) and a small electric oven. There were plenty of pans and dishes and all good quality. It was very good for cooking meals.

Problems or Bonuses

The good surprise was the peaceful location.

Agency and Representatives (and price)

We booked direct but there was a very nice Italian gentleman on site to greet us (Donato). He didn't really speak English but we were able to communicate and understand him.

Everything was exactly as advertised on their website.

Do you recommend this vacation rental to others?

We would definitely stay here again and have no hesitation in recommended this to anyone.

Things to do in this area

We drove to various places around Tuscany. A car is necessary for this accommodation.

We traveled from the local village (Paganico) on the train to Siena.
