Agriturismo in the heart of Tuscany for foodies!
As soon as I entered the door of this agriturismo, I realised the owners understand why people around the world come to Tuscany on vacation. Italian hospitality, cozy rooms, quirky interior, breathtaking views and above all, a great kitchen!
The agriturismo is just 4km from San Gimignano and from the garden and the swimming pool you have beautiful views of the city's medieval towers. At the reception you can get a walking map and in about 40 minutes you walk to the city through olive orchards and vineyards. The footpath is not illuminated at night, so it's more of a daytime activity. The central location in Tuscany also makes the agriturismo perfect for day trips to, for example, Siena, Florence, Volterra and Lucca. You can also visit the many wineries in the areas. For example, at the neighbouring wine farm (1.5 km), they give wine tours and tastings practically every day.
Whoever comes to Tuscany, of course, also comes to enjoy the Italian cuisine! The young hosts have understood this very well. Every day a home made 4-course menu is served in the cozy restaurant or on the terrace overlooking San Gimignano. I cannot imagine a more perfect place for a romantic dinner. The fresh organic ingredients are all sourced from farms in the neighborhood or at least from Tuscany. With passion the chef prepares her creative interpretations of the traditional Tuscan cuisine. Everything is home-made, such as the cakes for breakfast, desserts and even the fresh pasta.
The menu is included in the room price, so you do not have to leave at night and find yourself a place to eat. The drinks and wine are not included, but the espresso and a liqueur after dinner are on the house. Every morning on a blackboard at the reception, the cook writes the menu that she will prepare that evening. Something to look forward to all day! Lovers of cooking can also participate at a cooking class with the chef of the agriturismo (on request and given sufficient interest). A rich breakfast buffet is served each morning, including fresh, traditional and local products.
Swimming pool and lounge terras
There are two access roads to the agriturismo. A short but fairly steep dusty road or a longer dirt road (about 2km), but less steep. In the garden is a swimming pool with sunbeds and there is a terrace with lovely lounge sofas where you can enjoy a glass of wine, the beautiful view of the surrounding vineyards and the sunset behind San Gimignano.
The 14 rooms are carefully restored with original materials such as terracotta stone floors, large wooden beams and decorative bathroom tiles. The beds are made by a befriended carpenter and the wall decorations in each room are painted by hand by a local craftsman. There are two types of rooms for 2 and for 3 people, each with private bathroom. The rooms are equipped with satellite TV, minibar, safe, hair dryer, air conditioning, kettle and of course 2 wine glasses.
An agriturismo for food lovers! For those who want to experience real Tuscany and want to enjoy the local cuisine and wines, I highly recommend this agriturismo. Centrally located to visit all the cities, but also great to relax by the pool and to enjoy the Tuscan cuisine!
