Tuscany Recommended Agriturismo

Follow me on:

In the Italy Travel forum, a reader who just returned from a trip to southern Tuscany recommends Cretaiole, a reasonably priced agriturismo near Pienza (see Tuscany map for Pienza location). Included in the weekly stay was a guided tour of the Romitorio (an ancient Etruscan site) just outside the walls of Pienza, a guided tour of Siena, a pici making class and dinner, and an olive oil tasting evening...

Join the Tuscany discussion in the forum for more or to add your recommendations.

Staying in an agriturismo (definition of agriturismo) or vacation rental can be a good way to save money on an Italy vacation and the owners often provide valuable information about the area and may include special activities.

Apartments include a full kitchen (a good way to save money on food) and there's a lovely garden with a barbecue and swimming pool. On Saturday evenings, there's a welcome buffet with typical Tuscan food included in the price.
