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.

"Really recommended" - that is what our guests say

Tenuta Lupinari is situated in the hilly countryside between Siena and Arezzo. There is a small enclave of buildings, all designed with apartments of very high standard. Everything is located in the middle of 750 hectares of forest, vineyards and olive trees. The area is unusually unspoiled and in the middle of this lies Tenuta Lupinari as a oasis.

It produced both oil and wine on site, and it is possible to buy the local products - or taste it in the restaurant. During the summer, the menu is served (35 euros incl. wine) on the terrace outside the restaurant, but in the early and late season the wonderful food will be enjoyed in the fantastic, exclusive setting inside the restaurant. It is also possible to enjoy breakfast on the terrace for 10 euros person.

The owners - the noble family Pellegrino - live at the castle next to the main building, and they are currently leaving the daily operation to their daughters, who are doing a fine job taking care of the castle. A special feeling exists at this place and it is certainly because of the family Pellegrino's desire to create a place with a very special spirit.

It is possible to participate in the site's cooking school, which takes place every Tuesday from 16. The price is 85 euro per person incl. dinner. Max 8 people

Each apartment has its own terrace and many have a small garden, and there are nice and comfortable furniture. Around the castle there is plenty of space and a large green area with comfortable chairs and white pavilions around the pool. The apartments are furnished by the book with terracotta floors, rich fabrics, comfortable sofas and comfortable beds. There is no sofa beds.
Internet is possible in the common areas.

It is emphasized that there is peace and quiet at the apartments, so everyone can enjoy the silence. There are large lawns around the pool where the children have plenty of room to play. There is no washing machine. All bedrooms with aircondition.
