We stayed in a ground floor apartment 1 for 6 nights. On arrival we were unsure of what to do or who to contact. A neighbour pointed us towards a doorbell which we pressed. The owners mother answered and we struggled to communicate. Language barrier. After a few minutes and a nifty translation app, she showed us to our apartment.

The apartment was as expected. Clean and rustic/country style, the owner came to meet us later that day. He gave us lots of information throughout our stay and was very helpful. We really enjoyed the wine and olive oil. We even bought more to take home!

There are 5 apartments in total and would be ideal to book for a larger party.

we used the pool exclusively during our stay which was nice.

Stayed: September 2014, travelled as a couple

Easy to find, and in a great central location for exploring Tuscany and Umbria, la Spiga d'Oro is a farmhouse with self-catering apartments that are suitable for couples and families. There are seating areas outside, the use of a big Weber BBQ (and another), a decent-sized pool and a hydro massage pool. Included in the price were some traditional Tuscan breakfast basics, olive oil and red wine 'di casa'. Highlights of our stay were the location, the pool and the cats/kittens who entertained us nicely! A couple of minor problems (the loo flush mechanism had broken, and the kettle leaked) were very quickly resolved. The apartment had pretty much everything we needed (we did buy a couple of mugs as we like to drink Earl Grey tea!), and the dishwasher a bonus. Good shower, a DVD player and free wifi (for sharing the occasional photo with family!), pool towels and dressing gowns. Mirella was very welcoming on our arrival, and Giancarlo on hand each day to check we were all happy, and also brought occasional presents, such as local organic tomatoes, plums and mini bottles of rosemary shower gel. We had a great time. Grazie a Giancarlo e a la sua famiglia per un bel ritorno in Italia dopo 19 anni!

Room Tip: Book early as some apartments are bedroom + sofa bed in lounge (we had an additional bed in our room so our son slept on that). Giancarlo speaks English. Italians are frequent guests. Discover and enjoy!

My sister and I took my 90 year old father here for his birthday. When we arrived Francesca and Giancarlo had purchased a beautiful cake for him. We were tired from the drive and it was a lovely thing to do. The location is wonderful, close to so many amazing cities, We took day trips and we had the most relaxing enjoyable time. Mirella brought us fresh eggs and I wanted to bring her back to the states with us. What a great family! Giancarlo and Francesca are extremely gracious and so very helpful and bright. We are lucky to have met them and found this beautiful place to stay. I hope we can come back sometime. I would love to come here with my husband and boys.
