Stayed for a little under a week during the summer and it was a one of the most satisfying and calming holiday breaks I have had for a long time. Warm enough to swim in the pool but not so hot that you can't do anything.
The location is stunning and tranquil with views over a beautiful valley dotted with small Tuscan hamlets.
Maurizio and his family made me an my family feel part of their household immediately and we thoroughly enjoyed joining-in to do things around the place with them and learning from them about local produce, the farm's animals, beekeeping, and making bread. I had a wonderful day with Sara, Maurizio's daughter, making pizza and sourdough bread in the wood oven.
The food was superb; simple but really authentic and always made with top quality produce from the farm or from other producers nearby. A true taste of Tuscany.
The agriturismo is also well-located for further trips in the surrounding area and hiking in the hills and forests, either nearby or after driving further afield where there are well signposted hill and forest walks and beautiful little sparsely populated villages to visit. There is also good access by car - also by train from the main town (Vernio) to Prato and Florence.
I would return for another and longer stay at the first opportunity.More
