What our customers say about us:

  • An absolute MUST. Upon arrival we were met by two wonderful women, who didn't speak a lot of English but we got by. They made every effort to make sure we understood everything you will need to know, including giving us a grand tour of the castle and a bit of history. They recommended a fabulous local pizzeria. On top of this we had the castle to ourselves!!!! We had an incredible time there.

  • Nous avons passé une semaine à la ferme à Montaione où Claudia et Mauro nous ont accueillis chaleureusement. Le domaine se situe à 3 mn en voiture du centre ville (commerces, supermarchés, restaurants, etc) de Montaione, au milieu des champs d'oliviers et des vignes. Il y a trois appartements de vacances dans un même bâtiment, chacun dispose de son petit jardin indépendant avec salon de jardin. Notre appartement était situé au premier étage, fonctionnel et propre. Le grand jardin de la ferme est accessible à tout le monde, avec des balançoires pour les enfants (piscine à la belle saison). En fin d'après midi, les enfants accompagnaient et aidaient Mauro à nourrir les animaux : poneys, chevaux, ânes, cochons, chèvres, vaches, veaux, poules, poussins, tortues... de quoi plaire à tout le monde! La soir, Claudia et Mauro vous accueillent dans leur petit restaurant à la ferme : à la carte, spaghetti pomodoro, omelettes aux asperges sauvages, bruschetta, tiramisu, charcuteries et fromages du pays, vin et huile d'olive maison. Il est aussi possible d'y prendre le petit déjeuner. Claudia et Mauro nous ont offert une soirée pizza maison où nous avons mis la main à la pâte avant de déguster nos pizzas cuites au feu de bois! Egalement un balade à cheval pour les enfants. La ferme se situe à une bonne heure en voiture de Florence, Sienne et Pise, idéale pour visiter la Toscane (attention cartes et GPS ne sont pas souvent à jour en particulier pour les derniers axes rapides). A proximité, San Gimignano, Volterra, San Miniato, et des petits villages typiques. Le temps est passé trop vite.. Merci pour tout! Estelle et la famille

  • Прекрасное место, уютный домик, замечательная и очень приветливая хозяйка - все это оставило превосходные впечатления и желание вернуться. Уже агитирую своих друзей съездить туда и провести там отпуск. Двух ночей, что мы забронировали оказалось очень мало, даже с учетом того, что мы никуда не выезжали и даже по сути и по поместью не гуляли). Помимо того, что поместье огромное, так можно было еще и съездить во множество мест, которые готова была показать хозяйка, но мы решили оставить это до следующего раза, когда приедем минимум на неделю. Домик точно такой как на фото. Есть все, что нужно для жизни и приготовления пищи. Ну и не могу не упомянуть животных, что живут на ферме: лошади, пони, собаки... Прекрасный вид на городок Кальдана или на поля. Лежаки перед домиком, место для гриля со столом и скамейками - все это создает возможность отдохнуть на воздухе. Передать словами все невозможно! Нужно просто ехать! PS Большое спасибо Дагмар за помощь в лечении ноги (у меня была рана, которая не затягивалась). С помощью ее лекарства мне наконец-то удалось решить этот вопрос.

  • Wir hatten das Anwesen für eine Familienfeier mit 14 Personen eine Woche lang gebucht. Leider war der Pool wegen der Vorsaison noch nicht in Betrieb - was wir allerdings auch erwartet hatten. Das Gelände ist sehr weitläufig, sicherlich 20.000 qm, wegen der Hanglage terrassiert, was den Kindern aller Altersklassen große Freude beim Klettern bereitete. Die gesamte Anlage ist sehr gepflegt. Das Haus selber ist ein schönes, gerade in den Sanitärbereichen sehr ordentlich saniertes Anwesen. Sämtliche drei Familien waren mit der Wahl voll zufrieden. Die Abendessen-Auswahl war überschaubar - Pizza, Pasta, Fleisch/Fisch, täglich variiert - und sehr lecker; Preise ortsüblich zwischen 7 und 11 Euro. Wegen der kleinen Kinder haben wir häufig dort gegessen. Frühstück war völlig ausreichend (Brötchen, Marmelade, Käse, Müsli, Yoghurt, Obst) - auch typisch für die Gegend und nicht vergleichbar mit dem opulenten Angebot, was teils weiter nördlich aufgetischt wird. Die Kritik hieran kann ich nicht nachvollziehen. Die Gastgeber selber waren sehr zuvorkommend und vor allem den doch manchmal etwas anstrengenden Kindern sehr nett. Einmal hatten wir eines unserer Autos festgefahren (man sollte den Navigationssystemen in dieser Gegend nicht alles glauben ...), Fabrizio hat sich direkt darum gekümmert (Abschlepper organisiert und so weiter). Das beste Kompliment kam allerdings von unserer 2jährigen Tochter, die auf der Heimfahrt kurz vor Ankunft "endlich nach Hause zum Fabrizio" wollte. Wir überlegen, ob wir kommendes Jahr wieder für eine Woche hinfahren, wenn es die Ferienplanung zulässt.

  • Besser geht’s nicht! 
Ein wunderschönes Fleckchen Erde in der wunderschönen südlichen Toskana, der Maremma. wir haben uns in dem schönen Häuschen pudelwohl gefühlt. eine ganz besondere Energie lässt Entspannung pur zu. Wie schön im Bett zu liegen und einfach nur ins grüne Tal zu schauen, Olivenhaine, Pferde, Sonnenaufgang, Sonnenuntergang...seufz! 
Die zwei Hunde, Arti und Luke, die auf das Haus, Land, die Hausherrin und auch auf die Gäste aufpassen, kann man nur lieb gewinnen! Wir hatten unseren Hund dabei, glücklicherweise haben sich alle gut verstanden. Übrigens, wenn man mit Hund reist ist dies auch der perfekte Urlaub für den Hund! Die Lage bietet sehr viele Möglichkeiten, schöne Strände, Städtchen und natürlich den Parco della Maremma. Die Gastgeberin Dagmar ist eine Persönlichkeit, herzlich und gastfreundlich. All ihre Tiere Pferde, Esel und Hunde spiegeln ihr freundliches Wesen wieder. Pferdefreunde kommen hier voll auf ihre Kosten. Ich bin viele Jahre, nach einem Unfall, aus Angst nicht mehr geritten. Mit Dagmar nun wieder das erste Mal. Das Pferd auf dem ich geritten bin heißt denn Gentile, sie hat mich ruhig und super lieb durch die wunderschöne Landschaft getragen. Dagmar ist auch unglaublich ruhig und geduldig, man fühlt sich sicher wenn man mit ihr ausreitet. Ein weiteres Highlight sind die tollen Produkte die Dagmar herstellt. Olivenöl von allerbester Qualität - vorzüglich. Außerdem stellt sie allerlei aus Kräutern her, und kennt sich sehr gut mit deren Wirkung aus. Wir werden so bald wie möglich wieder unseren Urlaub dort verbringen! Highly recommended!! Wir wünschen Dagmar alles Gute! Bis ganz bald liebe Grüße aus Deutschland Brigitte, Felicia und Herr Rossi

  • This place is heaven on earth! We were a group of 9 people, and we've stayed here for a week. The best week ever! The apartments were so beautiful and comfortable, the kitchen was very heavily used and met every single on of our needs. And the view... The view is unbelievable! Marina was really friendly and helped us with every question and request, and did it with a smile! Thank you for an amazing experience! Don't think twice and book this place...

  • I have travelled a lot around the world and I can honestly say this is one of the best places I have ever stayed. In fact, we were meant to stay 5 nights and ended up staying for 14! Breathtaking location with stunning views over the surrounding countryside (particularly great is the one from the bed!). The photos do not do it justice! The farm is beautiful and there are lots of great walks to be taken both within the property and up to the nearby hilltop town of Caldana (which is so picturesque it is straight out of a painting). Shops and amenities are all close by. The location is also well placed for visiting the wineries, beaches and villages of the Maremma region. The cottage itself is perfectly equipped with everything you could want, full of character, very comfortable and functional. We cooked almost every night, both inside in the kitchen and on the outside fire (NB, there is no oven). The housemade olive oil is also INCREDIBLE. Last but most certainly not least, the hosts are among the friendliest and most welcoming people I have ever met. It was a pleasure to get to know them and stay in their magical place. My only warning is that this place is very hard to find at night! Make sure you arrive before sundown!

  • Honestly don't know where to start. Take the impression made by the images and multiply it by 10. This place is simply a haven of peace, beauty and hospitality stock full of personality. 30 minute countryside walk to the stunning hilltop town of Caldana. Your host is charming and friendly with nothing too much to ask. The farm has three friendly dogs to play with, horses, a donkey named Gustav, 600 olive trees (yes they produce their own oil) and views to die for. In short - book it, go there, stay there, never come back.

  • Yvona was extremely helpful in finding the right location for us (a group of 21 people). The Fattoria in Pelago offered everything we were looking for and was therefore the perfect place to stay for our group. The apartments offer everything you need and are overall very large and well equipped. The restaurant is right next to it and therefore was a win-win as we could just stay there on our arrival day. The pool with its view is just breathtaking and had already in may 20 degree C. On site, Linda was extremely helpful, answering and supporting us on all our questions upfront (which is definately not the easiest thing when having such a large group of people). The dinner we had at Franceso's place right next to the house is an absolut must, when you are there (or in the area). The food was incredible and he is a wonderful host. The location is about 40 mins from Firenze and it is very easy to get there. Overall: a perfect place to relax and have a great time, also thanks to a great team there!

    Heinz Henner Germany

  • Fantastic host in Follonica ! All communications went smooth. We came to town late so she put us a in a house that was closer and it turned out to be amazing. Brand new, pool, all stainless steel appliances and amazing neighbors. Overall I would recommend Yvona to anyone traveling through the west coast of Tuscany!

    Ilushka Ontario, Canada

  • Really great stay! Making the reservation and arrangements were very easy. Yvonna was quick with responses and we had a very nice host when we arrived to show us the apartment. Apartment was clean, spacious for 2 people and had the comforts of home and the feeling of the country. The best part was the spectacular view which can be seen from all around the house. Additional pros: the pool is beautiful and felt great, very short drive to Volterra (took just minutes), close to San Gimignano (I think it took us about 25 minutes to get there), and close to vineyards and farms for olive oil or wine tasting. I agree with others that it may be best to try to arrive during the day so that it's easier to see the road and signs for the house. Thanks for a great stay in Tuscany!

    Kathleen Studer New York, USA

  • The Farm close to Pontasseive and Florence was absolutely beautiful and Yvona did her very best to make sure everything was perfect for us. Prior to our stay she was always available to answer questions and responded quickly every time. A lovely and memorable trip. Thank you!

    Sarah Haron GB

  • It is a great place in a lovely village. Roomy apartments and quite big swimming pool for all guests. The land was quite huge with park with a great view, some olives trees, vines, birds. If you are lucky, you may see tortoise as well. We did enjoy staying in Campagnatico.

    Bartek Szmit Poland

  • My husband, two children and myself had a wonderful stay with Marisa and her parents in the farmhouse in Montaione. They are so warm, welcoming and kind. The apartment was very large and comfortable and the property is simply delightful. We particularly loved seeing all the animals, and how loved they are! This is a great place for a genuine taste of Tuscany, as it is a working vineyard and olive grove, and is also very close to a number of historic towns. We will definately be back for a longer stay.

    Rosemary Pearson Atanassov New Zealand

  • We spent 4 days in the residence in Scarlino. Before our arrival,Yvona was really reactive and did her best to satisfy us. The location is well situated (just 10-15min from the beaches and near from Follonica,which is a city you can go out and have fun). The appartement was really clean and modern,and with a large terrace! We also appreciated the swimming pool in the residence. Sara was very welcoming,friendly and helpful. She recommanded us a lovely beach to go! We appreciate our stay and recommand this appartement!

  • Myself and my family have just returned from a weeks stay at this property and we would certainly recommend it to anyone who is looking for an authentic Italian experience. From our arrival the hosts were very welcoming and extremely accommodating. We were very impressed with their generosity such as leaving fresh fruit in the kitchen as a welcome present. The house is equipped with everything we could possibly need. The photos of the property really do not do it justice. The house is beautifully decorated and the addition of a pool in our own private garden was a source of sheer delight for our children. We found the inhabitants of Stiava to be very friendly and everyone made a great effort to communicate with us despite our lack of Italian. We would advise anyone wishing to visit this region to consider this property as a base to explore the region. We certainly hope to return.

  • Nice house-nice host-nice people. We had a great time in Stiava. It's a small Italian "town" with not much to do, but closeby you have both Pisa and Viareggio. Pisa is a thing you have to see while you are there, but it is a complete tourist ghetto. Viareggio is a pretty cool place, with a fantastic beach promenade and everything you need of stores and restaurants. Now back to the house and Stiava. The house is clean, the family that rented out is very nice and is equipped. When I said not much to do in Stiava, bear in mind that the town has a farmacy, a bakery, two grocery stores, a butcher, a couple of bars/cafes. AND DON'T FORGET BAR da MACEDO. Very nice Pizzeria/Restaurant/Bar with the most fantastic and friendly service. Say hello to Luca and Stefano! So conclusion; a nice place, no problems and a helpful Yvona & CO. Thanks for everything!

  • Vroeger aangekomen dan gepland, gelukkig direct toegang gekregen tot het appartement. Prima inrichting, Italiaanse sfeer. Schoon en netjes. Geweldig zwembad, groot en schoon, fijne ligbedjes. Argriturismo-sfeer door de huisdieren (ezel, katten, kippen, konijn). Helaas niks gemerkt van productie of verkoop van eigen producten. Bereikbaar via 5min offroad rijden, maar bij lage snelheid goed te doen. 10 min van Volterra dus ideaal om voor de grote drukte Volterra te ontdekken. Sfeervol en leuk stadje. Tip: lekkere broodjes bij VolaTerrA (naast de palazzo dei priori).

  • Fantastischer Aufenthalt in Florenz!! Wir können uns nur bei Juri bedanken. Nicht nur dass er ein absolut perfektes Appartement für uns ausgesucht hat- er gab uns auch noch Tipps wie sie in keinem Reiseführer stehen. Florenz ist eine sehenswerte Stadt ein Besuch lohnt sich immer! Tuscany Holiday können wir nur weiterempfehlen!

    Lucas Blum Germania

  • Kohde oli juuri niin kaunis kuin kuvista pystyi päättelemään. Maisemat jopa parempia kuin kuvissa. Yvonna hoiti järjestelyt hyvin ja saimme aina ystävällistä palvelua ja ohjeistusta. Hän selvitti asiat meille hyvin etukäteen. Isäntäperhe oli ystävällinen ja kaikki sujui hyvin.

  • It’s a very nice historical villa in Monteaperti, Tuscany,we like to having breakfast under the beautiful old trees. Every thing is exact as they described. Warm reception and sweet recomendation for resturant and wine tasting tour and everything. BTW,she is very beautiful and patient,we will come back for the villa and the chianti around the villa. Thanks.

  • Unser Aufenthalt im Farmhouse war herrlich! Die Ferienwohnung sind sehr groß und traumhaft gestaltet. Die Villa liegt eingebetet in der Toskana, so wie man sich es vorstellt, wie im Bilderbuch, man hat einen direkten Blick auf Volterra. Es herrscht eine himmlische Ruhe dort. Das Grundstück ist sehr gepflegt, der Pool ist perfekt, wie auf den Bildern zu sehen. Die Familie ist absolut hilfsbereit, sehr lieb und arbeitet schwer, um die Farm so wunderschön zu gestalten. Sara, die jüngste Tochter, spricht mehrere Sprachen, unter anderem auch Deutsch. Wir waren 3 mal am Abend im Farmhouse zum essen und waren begeistert! Das Essen wird frisch zubereitet und es ist mehr wie zu empfehlen!! Wir hatten eine wunderbare Zeit und möchten uns ganz herzlich bedanken. Wir werden auf alle Fälle wieder kommen. Hätte ich fast vergessen, am Abend im Garten zu sitzen und auf das erleuchtete Volterra zu schauen, umgeben von Glühwürmchen! Eine Steigerung kann es nicht mehr geben. Viele Grüße, Uwe We had a fantastic stay. The Farm is huge and looks like and old very well kept castle. The cottages are amazing big and beautiful. Sara and her parents are there to help you with everything, they are a very sweet family; hard working all the time for theit guests. The farm is in a typical tuskany country setting,overlooking Volterra. In the night there are fireflys and it is amazingly quiet, you can hear the birds, even owls. Not to forget, there are fireflies!! How sweet ist that! If you like to have an real tuskany dinner, just tell Sara or her Mum, they will cook and bake for you and you are in for an amazing neverforgetable evening! We will be back for sure. Thank you for the wonderful time we had at your Farmhouse! Sincerely, Uwe

    Uwe Herrmann Germany

  • Heavenly! We'd absolutely go back. Wish we had more time there. A perfect location in the Chianti region. A beautiful place with great views. Also, the local town of Montaione is great. The villa was true to the description. It was wonderful. David and his brother, Roberto, who manage the villas were great. Always available if we needed something or had a question. Great suggestions of things to see or do locally. It was 100 % positive.

    Merry Gerard Massachusetts, USA

  • Thank you Yvonа for a wonderful place! And for the other organizational help. Loved this comfortable nice home in Viareggio and a wonderful hostess Anna. Very clean, bright, close to the sea and at convenient to walk to the train station. Special thanks to Anna for helping us in every way! And a trip to the doctor, and pigtails, and help in organizing travel routes of Tuscany. And just very cheerful companionship! Thank you.

    Alina Vensko Russia

  • This was our last and best stop on a 28-day journey across Italy. The property was amazing, beautiful and wonderful. It's on a hill offering 360 degree views of the vineyard and the mountains beyond. We stayed on the top floor in the Colombaia apartment which offered spectacular views in all directions - you could even see the Sea which was about 10km away. The rooms were spacious and the owners, Gloria and her husband were super friendly, kind and very accommodating. The pool and grounds are beautiful, as was the outdoor eating space that was provided to us. The beach at Follonica is only about a 10-15 minute drive to Follonica. There are restaurants, grocery stores, et al there. I would highly recommend the property to anyone traveling to Tuscany and look forward to returning.

  • Yvonna thanks for the nice accomodation. The little town of Roccastrada was very nice to visit. The castle was in great condition and it was a very unique and special place to stay. The ladies taking care of the place were very friendly and helpful. Also, what we liked of the location, was the fact that there was a pizzeria restaurant opened until 11pm (which was very unsual to see in Toscany) and a bakery shop that baked fresh bread every day. Thanks for the great place and also, the owner gave us great trips of places to visit nearby. I highly recommend this place to stay and have a great memory of the Toscany flavour!

  • Dagmar in Caldana was such a wonderful host, and the farm was like a little peaceful haven in the busy world of Italy! She took me horseback riding through the hills and farms, it was insanely magical! Her olive oil is amazing but even better is her homemade bug oil, which you will need! I recommend if you go, you bring some apples and dog treats and you will have some fast friends! It's pretty cool waking up with that view every morning, 3 nights wasn't enough. Can't wait to visit again! Thanks to Yvona for setting everything up!

    Jewell Morelli Canada

  • Our stay at the horse farm was incredible. The cottage is really beautiful with a perfect view of the Tuscan countryside when you wake up in the morning. Yvona was very hospitable. We chatted with her nearly every day, she recommended an amazing restaurant in nearby Caldana (I think it was called osteria la gricia), and she gave us all the materials we needed to make fires and cook outside. We were able to make fast friends with her dogs and horses on morning walks around the vast property. The farm is 20 minutes from Castiglione della pescaia where we enjoyed the low-key beach scene, delicious fish, and surprisingly good shopping. I recommend staying here to anyone interested in staying in the Tuscan countryside with access to beaches and surrounding historical cities. Just to note, it is imperative to have a car to get to the surrounding beaches and towns of interest. We will absolutely be staying here again as soon as possible!!

    Rachael Hoover Indianapolis, USA

  • After touring around the Tuscan region we found Volterre to be our favourite city, and the view from our eating space outside our room provided one of the best settings for our dinners. I would recommend this place 100%. The hosts were friendly, spoke great English and happy to help out. The rooms were clean and had air conditioning. You'll read reviews about the shower being small (if your fat I guess) the kitchen isn't well equipped (sure maybe the bare minimum but we managed with 4 people to cook top notch meals) or the road down is a bit bumpy (take things slow and there will be 0 problems, you are on vacation after all). The pool is just a fantastic addition to come back to after a long day exploring other wonderful places around the area. Make sure to visit San Gimignano in the morning for breakfast and a a stroll through its beautiful streets. I would recommend this place 100%

    Kyle Mc Culloch Canada

  • This farmhouse in Caldana is one of the most beautiful and tranquil places that I have ever stayed at. The owner is personable and very nice. The lady who cares for the property and cooks is lovely and helpful. Yvona, who I booked through, was incredibly helpful. The area is stunning and the house is perfectly rustic, meaning it has all the amenities and comforts with detailed rustic charm. Every room is a different size and has it's own decorative charm. The bathrooms are modern and there is plenty of hot water. The beds are comfortable, sheets & towels clean and of good standing quality. The area is so beautiful and they grow their own vegetables and have their own wine. The meals are delicious and plentiful. They have wifi and are super helpful about getting you what ever you want & need. It is also a 20 minute drive to the Tuscan coast, near the beautiful coastal town of Castiglione di Pescaia. Myself and my two friends did NOT want to leave! I highly recommend a stay here !

    Mari-Elisabeth Gomez California, USA

  • Site à Volterra splendide, vue imprenable plein sud. Logement bien conçu, propre et décoré simplement et avec charme. Toute la famille des propriétaires s'est affairée pour nous rendre le séjour le plus agréable possible, avec entre autre les bons petits plats. Je recommande vivement. Merci à Sarah et à sa famille sur place, et à Yvona pour s’être activée pour la réservation.

  • Abbiamo passato un capodanno stupendo nei 3 appartamenti che avevamo affittato, al nostro arrivo abbiamo trovato nella sala dell'appartamento grande il tavolo preparato per 14 , con i flut sul tavolo e 4 bottiglie di vino bianco, una accoglienza bellissima!!! Lo consiglio a coppie di amici che vogliono trascorrere dei giorni in compagnia in un posto tranquillo e cin una vu vista stupenda !

    Gabriella Platto Italy

  • Stanza bellissima e molto grande in un posto da sogno, immersi nelle colline Toscane, è stato meglio delle nostre aspettative. Yvona è stata gentilissima e ci ha consigliato delle spiagge da andare a dei posti da vedere. Consiglierei di fermarsi in loco per rilassarsi !

    Claudio Petrarulo Italia

  • Stefano and Marta are the perfect hosts. The apartment has one of the best BBQ views. Their pool is a good size to laze around in. The area is true Tuscan hills. Unspoilt by tourism - stay here for a real Tuscany experience. Thank you !
