We review each country house on a scale of 3 to 5, with 5 being the best category. We have looked at price, quality and x-factor and come up with a comprehensive review, which is largely made with the heart, and therefore is very personal.

You can't imagine a better vacation than this one with Serena and Alessandro

Welcome to the most wonderful holiday experience with Serena and Alessandro. Especially if you like a farm holiday close to nature and to eat organic, homemade food. Here it is possible to enjoy the silence and have a holiday out of the ordinary - spoiled by the sweet owners.

High up and a bit away from all the tumult is this beautiful agriturismo, where the first thing that meets you are horses in folds and then the hospitable couple who receive you and your family. Here, tranquility and warmth of heart is unlimited, so a holiday here is luxury in the relaxing way. In 1996, the couple fell head over heels for the place, and they created own-handed an organic farm and restored the homes so they could rent them out and thus delight others with the closeness to nature and the real, simple life. Here are only 5 holiday apartments and 2 rooms, so it is a cosy place where you will probably get to know the other guests.

The focal point is the food - that being said. The farm itself produces wine, oil, fruit and vegetables, and the rest of the products are purchased in the local area. Everything is organic. Every night there is food in the restaurant, and Serena stands in the kitchen and produces traditional dishes for shared enjoyment. The same place serves breakfast, where there are a myriad of delicacies, so everyone can get a good start to the day. It is the 2 meals that are fixed, but it is always possible to have a round of pasta brought to your own home, or a simple lunch dish served in the shade by the pool. You can also buy local specialties at the reception if you want to cook yourself sometimes in your own apartment.

Of the 5 holiday apartments, there is 1 larger apartment with 3 bedrooms, and the rest are 2-bedroom apartments with one bedroom and a sofa bed. The holiday apartments are furnished in 2 different houses and they all have their own outdoor areas. The apartments are very different, but all are nicely decorated with calm colors and good materials, kitchen corner, bathroom, and there is air conditioning and mosquito nets, internet and satellite TV.

Not far from the holiday homes there is a large pool (15,5 m x 5,5, m) with sun loungers, sun loungers and 7 parasols. The pool is open all year round and is surrounded by a large lawn with fruit trees, where there is also space for children to play. It is a beautiful infinity pool and the ripple breaks the silence, and from here one can easily fall in spells over the view over olive groves and the hilly landscape.

Another plus here on site is Alessandro's riding school with 4 very different horses, and here you can get riding lessons or go on horseback rides in the countryside.

There are many other animals on the farm, and more are being added all the time. This is a great place to be (and the local vet knows it well), and the harmony is perfect for animals that need special care. Alessandro takes care of all the animals on the farm with warmth of heart, and if your children feel like following the evening walk, they are welcome to greet the donkey Gepetto, the pig Zizu, the tame wild boar Dante and the Shetland pony Nutella - just to name a few. the animals.

Serena and Alessandro even live on site in an apartment on the 1st floor above the reception. So they are always nearby if you need help.

There are plenty of opportunities for hiking and running around the resort - in addition to riding Alessandro's horses. There are also 2 fishing lakes in the immediate area.

There are only 4 km. to the nearest village (Rufina) where there are shopping opportunities, restaurants and train station. It is 23 km to Florence, and it is a good idea to take the train into Florence, then you will enter the heart of the city without any problems and in a short time.
