Thanks a lot for your review!

Very sad to let one of m'y first bad review...
Everything was good unt'il they charge 25€ for late checkout (20min because of trafic and Exams before going) as they didn't mention How many before réservation...
Their attitude was really bad, non commercial. As, we Wish to come back now thinking about where Else to go
Hope they Will give up their activity one day. It's dishonest
we are really sorry for your bad experience.
We'll expect you for improve your experience in our Tenuta next time.
Having spent 3 days in busy Florence we took the SR222 road (voted one of the most scenic in the world) to Siena and then the accommodation. It’s a good ten minute drive from Siena and if you follow their instructions relatively straight forward, although we cheated and used satnav.
The property is down a long track and located on a large working farm / vineyard. We were welcomed and shown to our accommodation which was a ground floor apartment.
The views from the accommodation can be wonderful, but slightly limited due to the orchard and olive grove surrounding our property, some people have great views, others slightly limited. I can also understand some people would be disappointed as not every apartment has dedicated outside space, we had two chairs and a table so were fine however. But we did want a BBQ one night and felt we were invading someone else’s space as the BBQ’s are next to other accommodation.
The apartments are a good size (can’t comment on villa’s as didn’t see), well-furnished and decorated, although it was slightly nervy boiling water in a large pan to make a hot drink (accident waiting to happen). They provide a small welcome pack on arrival which is a nice gesture, but to be honest I have had better at a travel inn!
Pool is very well maintained as are all the grounds and accommodation was extremely clean. We chose this accommodation due to its location and tranquility, however there were a number of children around and it did get noisy at a few points. This did spoil it slightly for us however.
Final cleaning bill of 13 euro’s per person was a bit of a surprise, first time I have ever experienced this. It’s a bit like charging for heating and water, you expect to be in room cost and also made clear when booking.
If, like us, you're looking for the cliche Tuscan experience of staying in an old farmhouse set among vineyards on rolling hills, this place definitely provides it! We were delighted with everything at this agriturismo: the helpfulness of the staff at reception, the peaceful pastoral atmosphere while still being only a few kilometers from Siena (where we did our supermarket shopping), the gorgeous views from the balcony and out of our windows, and the way we were able to stay in a classic stone farmhouse with a wooden beamed ceiling, terracotta floors and traditional fireplace, but still had excellent modern amenities, including very comfortable beds in large rooms, lovely bathrooms with great showers, an electric stove in the kitchen, and very good free wi fi. Also made good use of the barbecue outside. Could happily have stayed here for a month!
We were in toscany for cycling.
It is a quiet place to relax and enjoy the Tuscany countryside. They produce good Chianti wine (you should bring some home)
One downside though: a bit too "remote", as you need a car to travel the 1.5km of "Strade Bianche" (dirt road) to the nearest village.
