Perhaps the quietest and most peaceful place we have stayed in many visits to Italy. Virtually no traffic noise just birdsong during the day and cicadas at night plus the sound of kids having fun in the pool of course but that has it's own music too!
Each apartment has it's own reserved area near the pool with sun loungers, chairs and a canape to keep the sun off. The apartment was spotlessly clean, well equipped and comfortable - a dishwasher would have been nice but hardly a deal breaker. We had a terrace at the front and back of the apartment so plenty of sun or shade.Beds were large and comfy.
We were given a big bag of large juicy tomatoes from the farm which we put to good use and enjoyed very much.
The restaurant was only open on the Saturday when we arrived so we missed dinner but there are supermarkets just a short car ride away. A car is essential here but there is plenty of shady parking available.Daniella made us very welcome and we would go back in a heartbeat.
3 of us had a large 2bd/2ba apartment with an adequate kitchen an great outdoor patio for sitting and dining during our 4 night stay. The grounds are lovely to wander and we made use of the BBQ. Unfortunate that a recent storm had contaminated the pool and resulted in a lot of algae since we had hoped this stay would give us our 'rest at the pool day'. Breakfast is an extra charge and definitely not worth the 9 euros charged (we only did this our first morning before getting to the grocery store) Dinner is available 3 nights a week with several choices at each course. We did enjoy this option 1 evening. The location is very good for travelling in various directions with many villages and excellent scenery.
Valleverde is an excellent place to stay and an ideal location to make the most of Tuscany. Chianti is on the doorstep, Cavriglia has several top class restaurants, Sienna just an hour drive away, and you can pick up the train 5 minutes away and be in the centre of Florence in 30 minutes.
Back at the Agriturismo, Daniela is the perfect host, the pool area and gardens are extensive and the restaurant is a must (top food, good wine and just a few metres walk away). We also did the cooking and wine tasting lessons which were just that extra special touch to an excellent holiday.
I really enjoyed my stay. The apartments are very nice, clean and tidy. The spacious garden has a rather large swimming pool.
The staff is very friendly and the traditional Italian food was very good.
I would love to return here and will definitely recommend it to my parents.
