Wonderful site, beautiful home
We (family of 3) just spent a week at Carmelina's lovely home. We used it as a base for day visits to Siena, Montepulciano, Arezzo, Cortona, etc, and also just sat and basked in the beauty of the surrounding countryside. The apartment is very authentic and special; a lot of thought and love clearly went into it. The little "village" that is the farmhouse was also nice, complete with about five cats of varying dispositions. In all, a wonderful stay, highly recommended.
Gorgeous setting in the heart of Tuscany.
Of the many Agriturismo's we've stayed at over the years, none can compare to the views at Podere Cavoni.
The spacious common area hosted many memorable meals, made possible by the well equipped kitchen.
Navigating the road to the Agriturismo does take some getting used to, but the peace and serenity make it worth the journey.
The Pictures Don't Do It Justice
This is an amazingly comfortable apartment in an idyllic setting that is the very essence of what those who've never been there might imagine the Tuscan Hills to be like. It's conveniently located to three principal wine centers: Chianti Classico, Montepulciano's Vino Nobile, and Montalcino's Brunello. Each is about an hour's drive. (Yes, you need a car because it's a ways away from everything, down a gravel road at the end of the trip.) We were two couples who stayed in this spacious rental. We had welcoming home made pastries and olive oil (!) when we arrived. I just cannot say enough good about it. If is up a flight of stairs, so if that's an issue, this might not be for you. Other than that, I can't say enough good about this place. (Oh, and the cats are very friendly.)
Beautiful setting, amazing location, wonderful holiday

Every view outside each window was a masterful painting. We could not stop taking photos. The apartment was perfect for my wife and I. We stayed for a week which gave us enough time to travel each day to a different city / town in the Siena region. The pool was just being opened for the season the day before we left but we could imagine ourselves lounging poolside with a great bottle of vino enjoying the view, clean air and sounds of silence.
The view from the hilltop house is wonderful in all directions and all hours. From sunrise to sunset, there are constant photo ops. Even at night, far off twinkling and shimmering city lights enchant. The setting is serene and the house is spacious and sumptuous. It was a pleasure living there, and to come home every day and enjoy the beauty, inside and out. There was an abundance of good ideas, information, maps, and books about the area and for reading pleasure in the house. We adjusted our original daily destination plans as we found and learned about the many enjoyable experiences close to ”home”. We felt fortunate to be a part of that life for awhile.
The apartment is located in the Crete Senesi, 15kms south-west of Siena. It has extensive undisturbed views across the Tuscan countryside and to the skyline of Siena. Shopping at Taverne D'Arbia 7km or the medieval town Asciano 10kms. Only 30km from the wine area of Montalcino where the famous Brunello wine is produced. Rapolano Terme (thermal baths) 18kms; southern Chianti area 15kms.
The area is not touristy, you will find yourself surrounded by local farmers and people from local towns that visiting the countryside on the weekend.
