Agriturismo in Italy
Agriturismo has become rather a big thing in Italy and basically it just means that the hotel your staying, usually a farmhouse or villa, is actually a working concern – that is, the farm or land actually produces something and is not a farmhouse only in name. Some of the very best are to be found in Tuscany, famed for its wonderful fresh, local food and fine wine. The Agriturismo Il Colto in San Gimignano is a perfect example. This lovely farmhouse has everything guests could desire, and is close to San Gimignano Communal Palace. Perfectly situated for great views of this wonderful medieval walled town with its famous towers.

Choosing Perfect Accommodation
Accommodation doesn’t come much more perfect than in a typical Tuscan farmhouse. The beautiful area around the rustic Corte Benedetto in Capannori is ideal for for relaxing and enjoying the culinary delights of the area. This lovely old farmhouse with its own pool and rolling green lawns is a fine place to choose, and even has its own riding school.

Stunning Siena
Siena is famed for its architecture, history and art. It’s a popular choice for visitors to this glorious area of Italy and you can enjoy it even more in the right setting. Great accommodation can really make a holiday special, and the beautiful Malafrasca is perfect for exploring the city and surrounding area. Its rustic countryside setting, with fabulous views of the Chianti Hills is the perfect, relaxing retreat, and you can even sample the home produced chianti.

A Friendly Welcome
Agriturismo Nibbiano in Montepulciano is a great choice for this famed part of the wine making region. Sample local wines and fresh farm produce in a spectacular setting. Gorgeous views, comfortable rooms, easy access to all the local attractions and amenities, make this rustic retreat a great base for taking in all the area has to offer. You’ll always find a friendly welcome here, its a family farm and has its own pool and romantic gardens. The pretty rustic setting is a far cry from the bustle of city life, though Agriturismo Nibbiano is ideal for sightseeing in Siena, Montepulciano and, of course Florence.

Choose one of these fabulous farmhouses and really enjoy a taste of Tuscany. See the beautiful museums and galleries of Florence or Siena, take in the medieval scenery of San Gimignano, or relax and just enjoy beautiful Capannori. Which ever one is right for you, you’re certain to leave feeling refreshed and ready for life.
