apartments on a farm near Manciano, Tuscany West


When

June 2009

Review

This agriturismo was a highlight of our month-long travels in Italy. The pool and accommodations were wonderful; the animals on the farm were adorable, including a kitten and dog named Ya-Ya. A new foal had just been born. The apartment was nice to have. We paid around 100/night in June.

The owner, Riccardo, has built this agriturismo on his grandfather's property. He bottles his own wine which is delicious and upscale, as well as olive oil, which was sold out during our stay, so we could not taste it.

The only disadvantage is that it is 10kmm from Manciano, deep in southern Tuscany/northern Lazio. Some people staying there were making day trips to Siena, which is crazy. The roads are very windy. We stayed at the pool, relaxed from busy traveling, and visited Pitigliano, the hot springs, and other hill towns nearby. We loved the quietude and peacefulness of the property, and would go back again.

This review is the opinion of a Slow Travel member and not of slowtrav.com.
