Fodor's Review

The elegant Marchesa Olivella Lotteringhi della Stufa has turned her six-century-old family estate (circa 1483) into a top-notch agriturismo. Think sophisticated rustic: many of the apartments have open fireplaces, and the stone houses have a private pool (the rest share the estate pool). Explore the grounds, which include olive groves, vineyards, and private lakes for fishing and windsurfing. "We hated leaving," says one fodors.com user. To make up for the absence of

room phones, mobile phones are made available to guests, and Wi-Fi service is available in the main castle for a one-time fee. From June to mid-September a minimum one-week stay is mandatory. All accommodation is self-catering.

Rustic Tuscan living

We stayed for a week in June and found the Calcione apartment wonderful for touring the countryside. The surrounding area is beautiful. We even passed a family of wild boars on the road while we were driving home from a great nearby restaurant. We had a terrace which offered a terrific view of the area + Lucignano nearby. Not difficult to find-only about an hour from Florence, but definitely off the beaten path. The apt is rustic but by the end

of the week, we hated leaving. Great quality for the $$.
