Our family have just returned from a memorable week at this Agriturismo. We have stayed at plenty of places of this type of accommodation in Italy and this is the best we have been to. The hosts ( Andrea and his family) could not have been more helpful and were always on hand when needed without being obtrusive.
The apartment ( Capriolo) was very spacious and remained nice and cool even during the hottest parts of the day. It was much larger than other agriturismo places we have stayed at before. There are 4 apartments in total and we had 3 Dutch families staying at the same time as us. The fact that two of the families were on their fifth visit and the third one was on their second visit speaks volumes about the level of amenity here and its idyllic location well away from main roads.
There is a huge pool which is kept spotlessly clean and each apartment has 4 sun loungers allocated. On the rare occasions when the pool is busy there is plenty of room. There were fantastic panoramic views from the pool area and from our first floor apartment. In its slightly elevated position there is normally a gentle breeze which is very welcome on hot days.
The beautiful hilltop town of Volterra is 10/15 minutes away with plenty of restaurants to choose from. For those who want to explore Tuscany, Siena, Pisa, San Gimignano and Florence are all within easy driving distance ( may be better to get train though to Florence as parking is very difficult and the city is extremely busy).
Andrea and his family also provided a superb evening meal for all the guests at the agriturismo on the Thursday evening we were there- a lovely touch much appreciated by everyone.
We will definitely return to this impeccable place situated in what is a beautiful part of Tuscany. It is only an hour from Pisa airport.
