Cozy and centrally located agriturismo in Tuscany
I was especially struck by the name of the agriturismo - "the singing cricket" - so I contacted them. The owner sounded very friendly on the phone and an appointment was quickly made. A week later I was on my way. The agriturismo is quietly located in the countryside and among its own olive groves and vineyards. In the distance you can see the mountains of Montalbano and the famous town of Vinci, the birthplace of Leonardo da Vinci.
It’s worth visiting the old town, which has a pretty centre and a museum exhibiting Leonardo’s designs and machines.The agriturismo is ideally situated for visits to the famous places in Tuscany. Florence is about 50 minutes away, Pisa and Lucca are approximately one hour. Volterra and San Gimignano are a little further, one and a half hour’s drive from the agriturismo. Also a day at the beach is possible. The famous beach resorts of Viareggio and Forte dei Marmi are about an hour away..
Pool & restaurant
In the garden of the property is a fully fenced pool of 7x18 meters, with sun beds and umbrellas. The agriturismo has no restaurant of its own, but there’s a restaurant only 150 metres away. They serve local dishes and you can easily walk there. The agriturismo serves breakfast in the cosy breakfast room or outside on the terrace. There is also a shared living-room and the agriturismo has wifi. Nearby, it’s just two kilometres to a golf course.
Apartments and rooms
The agriturismo has two spacious suites, six double rooms and 2 apartments. Both apartments are on the ground floor and have a living-room with sofa bed and one bedroom. The two suites are on the first floor and consist of a living room, with separate double bedroom and a bathroom. One suite has a balcony with views over the garden and pool. On the first floor of the renovated country house are five double rooms. Finally, there is a relatively small double room on the ground floor. All accommodation has air conditioning.
A homely, centrally located agriturismo with apartments and charming rooms. Ideal as a starting point for excursions in Tuscany!
