We really enjoyed our stay in this house up in the hills situated in the middle of the vinyards.
It's definitely not a five star hotel but the owners are amazingly kind and caring and they gave their best to make our stay unforgetable.
our room was in good condition and the breakfast was really good.
a real gem is the pool behind the house with an amazing view over the vinyards and sun all day long. we spent two days just hanging out by the pool just because it was such a great view and so quiet and peaceful.
its also the perfect spot to start a day tour through the tuscany valleys, to do wine tasting, to go to grewe or to florence for a day.
there is also a really cool restaurant that one of the owner recommened to us. trattoria l' antico forno in ferrone. it was absolutely outstanding!

Stayed there 3 times now. This is a farmhouse in the middle of Chianti region in Italy. Easy to get to Florence, Siena, and the rest of Tuscany. Rooms are large, bathrooms are clean, remodeled and have a bidet. Breakfast is pretty basic, but the price is very low too. We paid about Euro88.
I will for sure stay there again!

We rented the house Cipresso via In Campagna in Belgium. We were told it would not be very luxurious but very cosy. Upon arrival we already noticed the plaster falling from the walls and should havet urned around immediately. But we gave a try and were very disappointed:
* mosquito screens were all full of holes and broken
* no hot water for 2 days in kitchen and bathroom
* wireless Internet did not work most of the time
* sink plugs in bath room leaked/could not do dishes (there is no dish washer)
* gas pits did not all work
* screen television is smaller than average laptop (no manula for satellite)
* holes in walls and ceiling everywhere
* less than basic set of cutlery, plates, glasses, etc.
* not well-maintained swimming pool area with old parasols and (teared) mattresses for sunbeds
* the last day it rained and the roof started to leak in several places.

And on top of all we found a black scorpion in our bedroom one morning!

Need we say more?

A place that has breathtaking views and that is situated in the middle of silence. Oliver (the owner) is also the most kind and helpful host and guide.

We stayed two nights at this lovely agriturismo 2.5 km from Greve in Chianti. For those without a car, it is accessible by bus from Florence if you are prepared for a short walk on a narrow highway and then an uphill walk through quieter roads; exit the SITA bus at Tirassegno. Groceries can be purchased at the supermarket in Greve.

We stayed in a small apartment on the second floor of one of the buildings; the kitchen was adequately equipped for 2 people and is fine for preparing simple meals. A shared firepit/BBQ was also on site. Our rate included a generous breakfast buffet or cereals, pastries, yogurt, juice and boiled eggs.

We liked the extremely firm bed but it may be too hard for some. The standard of cleanliness was high. Windows are screened and an electric fan is provided. The only downside to the apartment is that the windows were at knee-level of the adjoining balcony; in our case, the room with the balcony was not occupied, but if it had been we would have had no privacy and noise might have been an issue.

There was a very nice (cold!) pool that was furnished with numerous lounge chairs and shade umbrellas. Although there was a children's pool, families with children used the main pool, making it a little more crowded and noisy that we would have liked.

Views from the breakfast room and a communal outdoor patio were goreous. Service was efficient and friendly. Wines and honey produced on site were available for purchase. A library of books and magazine was available.

We had hoped to do some hiking in the area, but the roads were very dusty and the heat made the uphill climbs too much of a challenge. We think that walking in this area would be lovely in cooler weather, however.

We recommend this agriturismo for a relaxing, no-frills holiday in a pleasant area of tuscany.
