The space

The Piaggione of Serravalle, at a first glance, appears as a gem naturally cast on the highest ridges of the Chianti hills of Central Tuscany, and as a jewel it shines with its authentic flavors, ancient traditions and silent stillness.
Shaded and enclosed by oak woods and shrouded by the greenness of its olive trees and vineyards, it mingles within the horizons of the grandeur of the Tuscan countryside that is still genuine and remarkably unspoilt. The structure of Piaggione consists of two spacious apartments, one holds four, the other, three bedrooms. Available on request we have a wonderful spa the Loggia, which houses a fine collection of exotic plants.On the top floor a spa tub and an infrared sauna and, accessing via a staircase, you will approach a somewhat hidden room used for massages and turkish baths on the bottom floor.
On the outside you are welcomed by a splendid swimming pool that plunges down on the lush valleys and, between sprouts of fragrant shrubs, built in the rocks, a jacuzzi tub that is surmounted by a spurt of hot water. Small paths and stone steps cut into the gardens that slope down the valley, designing silent hidden nooks that make its way through the forests. In this enchanting setting, stand out the modern sculptures of famed artist Alberto Inglesi that will accompany your quaint countryside strolls and hikes. If your desire is to rediscover the spontaneousness of life, the Piaggione of Serravalle is the place to be, to relax and immerse yourself in the magnificence of a Tuscan setting blessed by serenity and silence.
The Piaggione of Serravalle is a lively farm that is in constant action and that brings forth its daily activities that are carried out in order to achieve a balance of eco-friendly status that are , rational and respectful of the rules that prevail in nature and that characterizes its existence in every detail. Plants and animals, placed at the center of activities, have always been treated like human beings and therefore have the best care and attention to undergo the strictest quality controls that strive for excellence as well as for superb genuineness. The seasonal cycle of activities, therefore, commence in spring with the most suitable positioning of the plants, sowing the seeds and the maintenance of gardens, vineyards and olive groves. During the summer we proceed mainly with the picking of fruits and vegetables and then we begin canning the food for the winter and start collecting the wood for the colder months. Autumn however, is the most busy period since we deal first with the grape harvest and later with the olive picking. We also commence all the various processes for the production of wine and oil, the squeezing and the pressing and we also collect the wild fruits from our forests , traditionally considered to be one of the bases that characterize our local cuisine. During the winter, with the arrival of the frosts we end our labors but we also have to start preparing the land for the new year to come and we have time to devote ourselves to more domestic chores. Of course we always have our farm animals to look after. The food processing is challenging and goes hand in hand with the local tradition, to sustain the authenticity of ancient flavors and discovering new ones, thus giving the opportunity to gourmet fanatics to acquire the most authentic recipes , the methods of cultivation and preservation . The culinary skills of Camilla, joined with the hard labors of Alberto, will allow you to take advantage of the exquisite cold meats, salamis, bruschette and cheeses produced on the farm and we will be honored to prepare you memorable full course meals with traditional dishes, accompanied by Chianti DOC and DOP Extra Virgin Olive Oil; all obviously of our own produce and of course our products can be purchased directly on the farm. Camilla also offers her services as a professional tour guide, organizing trips and excursions all over Siena and its territory and enriching them with thorough descriptions and explanations. Alberto, instead, offers his own experience and skills in the arts, by offering sculpture and painting classes. Among the various projects under construction, in the future Piaggione will be able to offer cooking classes as well as organizing educational strolls along the paths of the vegetable gardens. Also at a stones throw from Piaggione recently has been established a horseback riding center , with a full range of activities related to equestrian trekking through the ancient roads of the Chianti hills.

Il Paggione was an absolutely fabulous place to stay in the heart of Chianti. It is located in a tiny hamlet, down a dirt road, surrounded by vineyards and olive groves - no noise from cars, planes or the neighbours - just the sound of ducks, roosters and birds. Stunning views over the Tuscan hills from the numerous balconies. The fireplaces kept us warm and the brilliant kitchen facilities made cooking so easy. It was pretty chilly when we stayed (February), so no pool action - but it looked great and would be absolutely perfect on a warm afternoon with a glass or two of the 'local produce'. Camilla & Alberto were always on hand and did their best to make sure we had what we needed - Alberto was a big help with the fire place, fire wood and doing what he could to make us warm.

We have enjoyed a wonderful week at this great house. We love the scenery and the friendly hosts. We can recommend to fill up the house and rent both appartments and the lodge next door - then you can enjoy it all for yourself - there is room for 16 persons. Please try the pizza party - a very special experience when Alberto start the big outdoor oven and create tasty pizzas in the beautiful surroundings - with nice appetizers and the house Wine and the lovely view of the Valley to make it a fun Night. Camillas pasta dinner is also great. We'll be back for more..

Camilla and Alberto were the perfect hosts. The villa was just as the pictures showed and accommodated 10 adults easily. And after a long day of travel to get there, the hot tub was wonderful. Nestled in a working vineyard along a hilltop the views were breathtaking every time we looked out the window or stood on one of the many porches. Alberto is quite the winemaker and his Chanti Classico rivals anything we tasted either dining out or at the nearby wineries. We had a couple renewing their wedding vows with us and to celebrate we had Alberto cook us pizzas! They were so good and as long as we ate, he kept making them. It was so good we later asked for the Tuscany Dinner which was two kinds of pasta and Florentine Steak. Delicious. If I had to do it all over again, I would have Alberto and Camilla cook for us every night, for their food was better than any we could find at any restaurant. We also had rental car trouble and Alberto handled it while we were away in Florence for the day. So nice to feel like a large Italian Family. Definitely will return and encourage you to visit soon!

We had the MOST fantastic two week stay with Camilla and Alberto! The main house (we rented both apartments which is ideal for groups and big families), furnishings, huge pool, custom hot tub with water fall, grounds, patios & decks, spa, ping pong table, bocci court, hammock, and sculpture FAR exceeded our expectations. Not only was the airbnb description accurate, the property was even more spectacular than the photos could show. The mix of antique charm with super modern amenities made it the perfect place to stay! Its hill top location (with breathtaking views!), quick drive to Siena and very close proximity to the quaint villages of Castellina and Vagliali (for top ranked restaurants) is, in our opinion, the finest and most beautiful location in all of Tuscany. In addition, we loved hanging out with their geese, cats and dog. Alberto and Camilla were such generous and welcoming hosts! We took a family clay class with Alberto, who is a world-renowned sculptor, enjoyed amazing wine and olive oil that they make themselves, and one day, Alberto took us to Siena to see the preparations for the Palio, not as paying tourists, but as new friends. On our last day of our two week stay, Camilla and Alberto invited us to lunch in their home as a send off. Next door is an equestrian farm, where our daughter took a (very reasonably priced!) lesson and they served us antipasto and their own wine as we watched her ride with the backdrop of Tuscany and Siena behind her. In addition, wineries, including the famous Dievole, are everywhere. We can't say enough good things about our experience and hosts. We consider Camilla and Alberto friends and are already planning for a return visit. If you have the chance to rent one of their apartments, think no further. This place is magical!

Apres nous avoir accueilli avec chaleur et un grand sourire, Alberto nous a servi le vin de la bienvenue.Camilla, malgré un emploi du temps trés chargé, nous a offert une visite trés riche en détails de Sa ville Sienne et nous a livré tous les secrets du Palio. Nous avons pu apprécier leur talent culinaire remarquable au cours d'un repas que nous leur avions commandé, sans compter les qualités de pizzaiolo d'Alberto lors de la soirée d'adieu ! Nous recommandons a tous les futurs résidents d'en profiter à leur tour ! La ferme auberge est idéalement située au centre du Chianti, qui est probablement une des plus belles régions de (URL HIDDEN) petite route qui y accéde est un ravissement pour les yeux (Caler le GPS sur le village de Vagliagli trés proche de la ferme auberge et non sur celui de Castellina in Chianti si vous voulez ne pas trop chercher !). La ville de Sienne n'est qu'à quelques kms. A recommander.
