We stayed here for 4 nights on our Italian trip.My husband and 3 sons.We had two simple ample rooms with patios attached to each room which provided lovely shade and privacy .When we approached the house first I felt a bit apprehensive but after the introductions and a tour it turned out to be a absolute gem.Friendly and helpful owners, beautiful pool, table tennis ,small volleyball area, fantastic views,quiet and relaxing.The food fresh simple and delightful.

This was a highlight of our Tuscan trip! Such a beautiful, peaceful place. The room was lovely - even better than in the photos! The owner and the staff were friendly and multilingual, making us feel welcome and free to enjoy the garden and pool area. The food was amazing - breakfast was a good spread and the supper was delicious! Different every night with good variety, some ingredients even home grown, with all courses fresh and homemade and plenty of it - definitely worth booking to include the evening meal! Wines were good too and very reasonably priced. We left feeling very relaxed and wished that we could have stayed longer, so we bought some of their olive oil as a souvenir!

Listen, this place is in an amazing location, beautiful accommodations, everything is clean and lovely, and its worth staying here; however:

-we stayed here based on the photos of the food and reviews of the meals online.
-they accommodated our vegetarian requests, thank you for that.
-the meals were fresh and used organic when available.
-AND to be perfectly honest, for 2 days of the 4 we were there, the food was indeed amazing.
But:
-we are in Tuscany, finding fresh food at this time of year is not a challenge. its seasonal eating. you can go to the market down the street and get fresh local produce.
-I don't believe we ever had fresh pasta once! (see photos on Trip Advisor or the Agritourismo site)
-I believe we only had dry pasta, and it was cooked poorly twice.
-the photos of someone making fresh pasta online was severely misleading, 4 days and we never had it once. it was a selling point of us choosing this place. so disappointing.
-We can literally get organic dry pasta anywhere at home, and make a sauce for it. we don't need to pay $42 euro for the hat board to get it (its a lot of money!)
-a lot of the time the food looked like it was cooked by a teenager: basic and boring.
-Again, the food looks NOTHING LIKE THE PICTURES online
-you don't need to pay over $46 euro a night for this food (half board) seriously not worth it.
-it just seems like there going through the motions now, not much passion for the cooking, and little concern if the guests are getting what they advertise on the agriturismo site.
- I don't believe the same chef they had in the photos is there anymore, and the food certainly doesn't look like what they are showing on the site.

But please remember what I said, this farm is gorgeous, clean and worth staying at, they just need to update the pics on their website, its very misleading, and feels like a little like bait and switch. (also maybe a glass of wine included with dinner too?) Again, its $46 euro a night for this food, for 2 people. too pricey for what we receive, and no fresh pasta! (again see the pics on the agriturismo site)

there a lot of places you can go to in Tuscany for this type of accommodation/service, and I would recommend a little more research before you choose. Almost every place does organic, local options. its what the area and Italy is known for.

Dear guests,
we are delighted that you have appreciated the place and the accomodation, but at the same time we are sincerely sorry that you did not appreciate the dishes that we served.
It's a pity that on your arrival you did not express the reason why you chose us :"fresh pasta". We would certainly have tried to please you as we always try to meet the wishes of our guests.
We usually serve homemade pasta once a week and unfortunately it had not been planned during the 4 days of your stay.
We allways offer a traditional Tuscan menu and we change it every day taking into consideration the guests who stay for a long period.
There are many guests who visit us again especially for our cooking which is appreciated as can be seen in other reviews.
The chef is our son, the same that you can see in the pictures on our website.
We believe that the cost of half board at 23 Euros per person with a four course dinner (appetizer, first course, second course with side dish and dessert) with fresh, seasonal, local and mostly organic produce is not too expensive. Mineral water, coffee and digestive drinks are included in the cost of the meal.
We always try to satisfy everyone and we very much hope that we will have another opportunity to welcome you in the future and meet your expectations.
Best Regards
Agriturismo Apparita

An agricultural property with six rooms to rent. The owners care a lot and you can feel their personal care. Breakfasts and dinners are prepared with your allergies in mind. Breakfasts start at 8.30 and have many quality ingredients: hams, cheese, eggs served to your liking, breads, cakes, home made marmelades, yoghurt, flakes, muesli, fruit, juice, milk, tea, coffee or local's favorite: cappuccino. Our request for extra vegetables was met every day. Lunch is up to you. It actually encourages you to travel to some great restaurants nearby. The dinners start at 20 and are two-hour celebrations with 3-5 dishes. The tastes are fresh and great. Some of the wines you can purchase are excellent. The rooms are basic but nothing to complain about. Please note that only some rooms have bath tubs. All have showers. We were concerned with stone floors but thanks to a carpet no kid was harmed. The surrounding is absolutely beautiful. The pool seemed too cold in May but children still had good fun around it. The area hosts a horse, a donkey and several cats and dogs that children adore. There is a grass volleyball / badminton area. On sunny days it is perfect. On rainy days you have the table football and the TV in your room has channels from several countries, including two from Poland. There are many sunbeds outside. We had great holidays relaxing in this Agriturismo and sightseeing Tuscany.

We stayed here for three nights, on top of a hill a lovely place with friendly owners. They speak English and really good German, the rooms are spacious and clean. The owners were very helpful when we had problems with our "targa" (thanks again!)
The food is pure and really really good, the only small critical thing here is the high speed of serving it, but nevertheless it tastes delicious! "Risotto a la Chianti" and "torte della nonna" were the best!!
