The property is situated on a quiet country road and has its own large landscaped garden with wonderful, extensive views across the Tuscan countryside. The property is part of a privately owned estate that has been in the Andreini family for three generations.
Guests are welcome to explore the 300 acres of private land. There is a delightful walk through the wood and a visit to the farm itself is particularly worthwhile. There is an olive grove, a vineyard and children will especially enjoy seeing the chickens, pigs and 80 Chianine cows.
Thea nearest grocery store is just a mile away in the village of Corsano (Ville di Corsano). There is also a taverna, a pizzeria and a post office.

|Further details outdoors|
The property has a large landscaped garden overlooking the rolling Tuscan hills.
There is plenty of space for children to run around safely, while the adults can relax while perhaps enjoying a nice glass of Franco Andreini's vino.
The apartment is self catering but meals can be arranged on request. Agriturismo Andreini also offers B&B accommodation where guests eat together in the restaurant. Guests at the apppartment are welcome to eat in the restaurant and enjoy traditional Tuscan meals prepared by Giulia Andreini and her daughter Maria Pia.
Maria Pia and her sister Monica are English speaking (though a conversation with purely Italian speaking Signora Giulia should not be missed).
Olive oil, eggs, wine and seasonal vegetables are available to purchase at the farm and a fine selection of organic goats cheese is available from a neighbouring farm.
Signora Giulia will happily recommend excursions and activities (horse riding, nearest beaches, golf, restaurants, etc).
The Tuscany region
Tuscany has something for everyone. The sun, the food, the history, the fashion. Whether travelling with family or friends, the opportunities are endless. Pampering weekends, wine tasting, hunting (wild boar, pheasant, deer), horse riding, hot air balloon trips, golf, moto-cross can all be arranged. Siena is our main town where you can enjoy lazy days strolling around the shops or lounging in the many bars and restaurants.
If you are lucky enough to be here during the Palio (2nd July and 16th August), you are in for a treat. The city comes alive as the entire population celebrates this traditional medieval event.
Ville di Corsano
Ville di Corsano (just five minutes by car) has a grocery shop, a post office and a pizzeria with a bar (free WI-FI).
The bar is an ideal spot for a nice sunset aperitivo and a chance to mingle with the locals.
The pizzeria (actually a lovely restaurant with a great menu) also has a take away service. At the end of your very busy day strolling around the cobbled streets looking at stunning views, perhaps the last thing you want to do is start cooking..... place your order and by the time your cocktail is finished your meal will be ready.
The historical town of Siena is just a 15 minute drive along typical Tuscan winding roads. Here to explore are museums, historical buildings and tiny cobbled pathways leading to wonderful eateries where afternoons sipping fine vino easily drift into balmy evenings. The views will leave you breathless (as will some of the steep hills!).
Nightlife in Siena is lively and friendly with a great mix of bars and restaurants. Nobody should miss a dinner or lunch in Piazza del Campo nor a trip to the market which is open every Wednesday. Live music events also take place regularly in and around the city.
Corsano is the ideal base to explore Montepulciano, Montalcino, Pienza, Montichiello, San Gimignano and Florence. For a decadent treat, the thermal springs at Antica Querciolaia is just a half hours drive (http://www.termeaq.it/index.php?id=59).
