Exquisite interiors, sprawling forests and olive groves, estate-produced meals, pool, hammocks and a haunted ruin. Wonderful for families

Read guest comments

Set in an organically certified, 200-acre olive estate beneath the magnificent Appennini mountains, this 17th-century hamlet, procured by Corrado and English Cornelia, recently renovated whilst also raising a family, is agriturismo perfection. Follow a winding five-kilometre drive through chestnut, hazelnut and oak forest (ensuring utter seclusion), be greeted by charming Cornelia, decant into rooms beautifully designed with Arabian (not Tuscan) flair; both spent time in Abu Dhabi. Find exquisite rugs on cotto floors, raw beams, antique screen bedheads, richly textured cushions, delicious cotton bedding, little chandeliers, creaky trunks, glass bedside lights, and breezy bathrooms with free-standing tubs and monogrammed towels... all feels uncluttered and balanced. La Tavolata, their restaurant, serves delicious estate-produced meals (game in season) against sensational valley sunsets. There's loads to do both on the estate and off – this is heaven for free-range kids. And, with secluded nooks, poolside daybeds and hammocks in secluded crannies, it's pretty nice for adults too. Oh, and a haunted ruin!

Guest feedback
"Absoulutely stunning..... We were lucky enough to be offered a deluxe room for the price of a double as there were no doubles left. The room was huge, and the bathroom bigger than some of the bedrooms we've stayed in. The attention to detail and special touches were second to non. We had dinner in the restaurant and all was as described, fabulous views and great service. I'm not a big meat eater and so there was limited choice but I found something and was happy! Breakfast was also very good, the coffee excellent. Cornelia was absolutely lovely, how she manages to run the place so well with 5 young boys astonishes me. Would definitely return..."
