Lovely secluded farmhouse in a scenic setting. Agro-tourism. Very nice, hospitable family. Facilities good - but don’t plan to run a business on the WiFi. A safe environment for the kids. The pool is refreshing. Lots of wildlife seen in immediate area from boar to deer to wild tortoise. If going in Summer insect repellent and plug ins are highly recommended. Central location for a days drive out to Pisa, Sienna or Florence or the beach. We had a great two weeks there with the kids and can highly recommend.
Local villages - Ribolla: Cappuccino at the bakery at far end of town (just past T junction) - btw one can dump rubbish in a skip nearby. Fruit and veg shop great and there is a supermarket (street market Tuesday). Castellaccia : very small but has a great friendly little restaurant ‘Osteria Borgo Pesca’ specialising in authenticate simple Tuscan cuisine. Popular with the locals.
We have stayed at the apartment for 4 nights. It is very well equipped, clean and big enough for two people. The views from the window are mesmerising. Fabio is a great host and organizer - I've asked for white linen due to my husband's allergy and it was provided along with a bottle of very good local wine. I would definitely recommend Buriano and Fabio's apartment if you are after peaceful little break.
