We falled in love with our landscape, the rolling hills, the colors of the nature , the cereal fields, the very open tuscan sky, the sun, the clean air, the wineyards and olivegroves, the old medieval and reinaissance small towns.

Superb food and wineIf you are looking for a place to relax and unwind, to feel amazement from a glance towards the skyline, or a walk, or some woodland animal crossing your path, for a sunset caressed by the fresh evening breeze, to experience emotion for fascinating and amazing artistic places immersed in such unique, calm and silent environments, COME TO the FARMHOUSE CUNINA in BUONCONVENTO, and you enjoy the Tuscan countryside.

WE OFFER COOKING CLASS AND WINE TOUR ON DEMAND.

Each apartment is high quality, typical from Tuscany, comfortable and elegant with panoramic view. All very romantic.

What makes this farmhouse unique

The ground has amazing colours and is so maleable that anyone passing over it leaves tracks. Livestock paths, numerous vineyards, olive-groves, truffle-grounds, and lush forests with oaks, ilexes, broom and hawthorn can be seen here..

Travelling along the rural dirt roads,often located on hill ridges, seems like sailing among waves of earth and, when overlooked by an open sky and pushed by the wind, one feels very small.

Fantastic Tuscan holiday with amazing views

  • 5 of 5

I cannot recommend Podere Cunina highly enough. My partner and I spent a week here in late October and it was just perfect. The Freddi family could not have been more welcoming and friendly. The apartments are beautifully furnished (we stayed in Hedera which has just incredible views as you step out of the door over the hills looking towards Montalcino a few miles away). The views in every direction are just amazing. The outdoor pool is fantastic - just about warm enough to swim in even in mid-October - and also with incredible views over the olive groves to Montalcino. Highly recommend doing a cookery class with Marcello - not only for the amazing food but also it was really nice to have dinner with the family afterwards. Their extra virgin olive oil, honey and saffron is also wonderful. If you're looking for a truly peaceful, relaxing holiday in the heart of Tuscany, there can't be many places better than this. Grazie mille, Silvana and Piergiorgio - we will definitely come back again sometime to stay here again.

  • 5 of 5

Gorgeous property, Great family, cooking lesson was so very nice. The apartment (hedera) was cozy and perfect. The views from the property were picturesque! I would highly recommend this property to anyone traveling in Italy. It was the perfect place to view the Tuscany region and surrounding towns. The family was just a delight and we look forward to visiting again.

A Little Piece of Heaven

  • 5 of 5

Podere Cunina is a truly a little piece of heaven! The love and pride that have gone into every part of this wonderful property are evident down to the smallest detail. Silvana and her family are gracious hosts and eager to make sure your stay is what you expect. Our time there was 100% PERFECT from the apartment (Hedera), to the garden, (pick your own vegetables for dinner) the pool, the absolute peace and quiet, and fun cooking class taught by son, Marcello. Don't miss the cooking class! We stayed four nights and would return again with no second thoughts. You will definitely enjoy your time at Podere Cunina. Thank you to Silvana, Piergiorgio, and Marcello for opening your beautiful place to us and making sure we had the most amazing vacation.

AMAZING (AGAIN)

  • 5 of 5

It was our 2nd time in Silvana's house and, as in first time, everything was perfect: the views of the valley (with Montalcino at the end), the welcoming atmosphere, the apt (comfortable, clean, spacious, well equipped).....

They also have own production (organic) of honey and olive oil, both very, very good.

Silvana and her family were always around to help and assist us with everything.

Grazie Silvana for all.

We will come back (again)!!!!!

SUN-ART AND NATURE.

The farm-holyday resort Agriturismo Podere Cunina is immerged in a large natural reserve , with a lot of wild small and mid size animals, offers to the tourists a finely renovated flat with sight on Montalcino, mount Amiata and the hills of Buonconvento and Siena.

WE HAVE 7 FLATS AVAILABLE, PLEASE, CONTACT FOR DETAILS ABOUT OUR OTHER FLATS. We offer unforgettable and very interesting wine tours and cooking classes.

The farmhouse is equipped with ancient quality furniture, fitted with all modern comfort items, with maximum level certifications regarding the safety and the energy saving (floor heating/ refreshing with geothermal system, thermal and acoustic insulation).

Silvana, Piergiorgio, and their family invite you to spend a vacation at Podere Cunina, an old Tuscan farmhouse situated on a hill with a 360° panoramic view. The farmhouse and grounds were restored to include 7 apartments, barbeque and picnic areas, and a swimming pool with wi-fi connection. Podere Cunina is an ideal location from which to discover the Crete Senesi, Val d'Orcia, and all of Tuscany. Surrounded by this ancient landscape, essential and harmonious, your respect and love for nature's beauty will be nourished. Your eyes and your soul will remember it….and you will remain always attracted to this land

Live­stock paths, nu­mer­ous vine­yards, olive-groves, truf­fle-grounds, and lush forests with oaks, ilexes, broom and hawthorn can be seen here. Travelling along the rural dirt roads,often lo­cated on hill ridges, seems like sail­ing among waves of earth and, when over­looked by an open sky and pushed by the wind, one feels very small.

This land is crossed by the an­cient Via Cas­sia road and is part of the Fran­ci­gena pil­grims route. It is rich with old parish-churches, abbeys, and an­cient farm­houses and ther­mal springs, as well as traver­tine quar­ries which gave birth to the fa­mous local handicrafts. Due to their pe­cu­liar land­scape and the abun­dance of artis­tic and his­tor­i­cal ref­er­ences, the Sienese Clay Hills are among the most fa­mous and pho­tographed en­vi­ron­ments in Italy. Set be­tween the hills, the fields of grain and the cy­press trees, the Clay Hills are a coun­try­side her­itage pro­tected by UN­ESCO. Here mass tourism doesn't exist, it would be de­struc­tive and would dev­as­tate the in­ti­macy and har­mony em­i­nat­ing from these hills. In re­cent yeats ef­forts have­been made to ren­o­vate local farm­houses and restart crop cul­ti­va­tion, which was aban­doned in the '60s and '70s fol­low­ing in­dus­trial de­vel­op­ment. These rural small­hold­ings live again and often offer hos­pi­tal­ity to tourists from all over the world as farm-hol­i­day prop­erty and lo­ca­tions.

PODERE CUN­INA in BUON­CON­VENTO is also a farm-hol­i­day lo­ca­tion within this sys­tem of ar­chi­tec­tural and land­scape re­cov­ery that fully re­spects its en­vi­ron­ment. Tra­di­tional ma­te­ri­als typ­i­cal of the area, sourced via ac­cu­rate and de­tailed re­search, were used for the ren­o­va­tion. Lo­cated in­side a large na­ture re­serve, with many small and medium-sized wood­land an­i­mals, it of­fers 7 finely-ren­o­vated flats to tourists, with views of Mon­tal­cino, Mount Ami­ata and the hills of Buon­con­vento and Siena. It is equipped through­out with qual­ity, an­tique fur­ni­ture, fit­ted with all mod­ern com­forts, with max­i­mum level cer­ti­fi­ca­tion re­gard­ing safety and en­ergy sav­ing (un­der­floor heat­ing via ge­ot­her­mal sys­tem, ther­mal in­su­la­tion, pool).
