Beautifully renovated agriturismo near a restaurant and a medieval fortress
This agriturismo is located near one of my favourite restaurants in Tuscany. For years I’ve been lunching regularly at this restaurant, quite unaware that such a beautiful agriturismo was tucked away only a few kilometres away.. Really, a hidden gem! The agriturismo is a beautifully converted former monastery and is located among vineyards, cypresses and olive orchards. You have fantastic views of the surrounding hills and a beautiful medieval fortress. Which is well worth a visit! In the courtyard of this fortress you can find a few nice shops, bars and restaurants and for a fee you can also visit the castle and walk along the old city walls. The agriturismo is in a central location in Tuscany: Siena, San Gimignano and Volterra are all within a half hour to 45-minute drive and Florence is an hour away.
Pool, mountain bikes and communal barbecue zone
In the grounds of the agriturismo you can clearly see the remains of the monastery, there’s a small chapel and the old well in the courtyard. The other buildings of the monastery were tastefully renovated a few years ago to provide 11 comfortable units of different sizes. Somewhat hidden behind the olive trees is the swimming pool (12x6 meters) from which you have breathtaking views. Around the pool are sun beds, umbrellas, a pergola for some shade in the warm summer months and there are lounge cushions scattered around. On the other side of the monastery is a beautiful garden, with a characteristic avenue of cypresses among the vineyards. There is also a shared barbecue area, with tables under a pergola, which all guests can use. The agriturismo also has 6 mountain bikes that you can use for free.
Apartments and breakfast
The 9 apartments and 2 rooms of the agriturismo have been carefully renovated, while maintaining the original structure of the monastery and using natural materials. The terracotta floors, the wooden beams, the fireplaces, were all reused or preserved during the renovation. The apartments are simply but nicely furnished, all have a modern bathroom and are equipped with Wi-Fi, satellite TV, a safe and a hair dryer. What makes this agriturismo extra special and luxurious is the comprehensive breakfast buffet that you get every morning (included in the price). When the weather is nice, you can enjoy breakfast in the sun in the courtyard, otherwise it’s served in the comfortable breakfast room. The apartments are also cleaned daily (with the exception of the kitchen, and they don’t do the dishes!).
A beautifully situated agriturismo with panoramic pool and strategic location for visits to the famous Tuscan towns. Nearby, a beautiful Medieval fortress and a few kilometres from one of my favourite restaurants in Tuscany. An agriturismo for lovers of peace and quiet and for those who like to start the day peacefully with a nice breakfast.
