Characteristic Agriturismo between Siena and Florence
Owner Riccardo called me while I was in Siena on a sunny Saturday afternoon in October. He told me that he owns a beautiful agriturismo in the Chianti region and that he would like to be present on the website of My Italy Selection. It sounded promising, but first I had to see it with my own eyes. That same week I went to visit the agriturismo in the heart of Tuscany.
Fortunately Riccardo did not promise too much. What a beautiful place! The agriturismo is a carefully restored castle, situated among vineyards and cypress trees, halfway Siena and Florence. In the Middle Ages the castle was used by pilgrims and merchants who were on their way from Florence to Volterra.
Riccardo and his family, transformed the original farmhouse into a beautiful agriturismo with 5 comfortable and spacious apartments, a swimming pool and riding stables. They also live on the property. The wine cellar and olive groves of the agriturismo are located about 10 km away. On request it is possible to get a tour there.
The five apartments in this farmhouse are renovated and furnished in a traditional Tuscan style. Terracotta tiled floors, beamed ceilings combined with beautiful antique furniture. The apartments are all on the ground floor and the bedrooms on the first floor. Each apartment has a private terrace. On site there is wifi.
This is a beautiful and authentic agriturismo with very strategic location. Florence, Siena, Volterra and San Gimignano are all easily accessible from the agriturismo. Riccardo was right: this is indeed a jewel in the Chianti region!
