The tour was certainly pleasant & informative followed by a truly delicious lunch in a beautiful setting. We had such a nice time with the owner and her family that we returned a couple of days later for dinner. The dinner was not as special as the lunch but we saw an incredible sunset.

The day was cloudy, rainy and cold...so we didn't have high expectations. However, the owners of this farm created a day for us that turned out to be our favorite of the entire trip. The owners are extremely hard working and friendly people that impressed us beyond belief. We learned about the intricacies of making cheese and afterwards, sat in... More

We took a group here for a tour and lunch. Very interesting tour, they work hard to make all their organic food. Everything we ate was simple and delicious, coupled with spectacular views of the valley. Try the cheese plate, so many different flavours! We went back twice for lunch (linguine cache e pepe to die for).

One of the best camping experiences; beautiful surroundings and warm hosting - felt like a secret getaway. They are doing great things with their restaurant- however on a camping budget we felt the breakfast was best value- got to sample homemade jams and cheeses from the farm. Recommend!

An awesome setting. Julia takes you through her philosophy around organic natural food and farming. Class is great. Food is great. Staff are super friendly. Get directions before you arrive. GPS may not have it.

We were given a tour by one of the owners followed by lunch. The owner really made this visit wonderful for us. She was dynamic, knowledgable, and passionate about her farm. The lunch was excellent and the outdoor setting provided incredible views of the Tuscan hills and valley.

Cannot say enough good things about this farm. We were given a tour by one of the owners Ulysse and were just amazed by how much they accomplish every day. From making cheese from their own sheep, olive oil from their own groves, to serving delicious meals from their own farm...this is just simply the most beautiful farm I've ever... More

Awesome home grown/reared food, eaten with a stunning view of the sunset over the Valdorica. Simple Tuscan dishes, cooked well, with a great selection of cheeses and wine. We went for dinner, however they also offer lunch, cheese tasting, and cooking classes. If you are in the Pienza area, this place is not to be missed.

We had a happy and relaxed day learning to make pizza with our boys (4&6) who were fully engaged and enjoyed everything from making the dough, meeting and feeding the animals to preparing and eating the pizza. Sandra was an informative hostess and pizza chef Pierlouis charmed the boys. One of our favourite days of the holiday. The view from... More
