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.

The description of this beautiful place is quite forward. It can be said shortly - the place has everything - wonderful, home-cooked food, a warm and welcoming family, pool with children's pool, fitness room and relaxing atmosphere. Then season it with breathtaking views!

Soiano is located in the triangle between Florence, Pisa and Siena in one of the most beautiful landscapes of Tuscany.

They produce wine and oil, and these are important ingredients in their life and in the kitchen as Tiberio controls with expert hand. They have a big garden with lots of fresh vegetables that are being used in the kitchen, and you will also be able to use these fresh ingredients with the help of Lara or Tiberio.
