these guys were fantastic. The lady who hosted us was so good natured and friendly and had great local knowledge and really helped us out. The place was always tidy and and the rustic farm stay itself was truly fantastic looking and is the perfect place to stay for a tuscan retreat.
This is the perfect place to choose if you want to enjoy Siena without missing the best part of Tuscany: its beautiful countryside!Fattoria di Cavaglioni is a 220 hectares farm just 10 minutes by car from Siena, 25 minutes by bus and the bus stop is just in front of the accommodation. (Notice: Because of the financial crisis in Italy at the moment there had been cuts to the sundays and holidays' buses rides, but we try to give rides to Siena in these days as more as is possible for us)The bedrooms are located in an ancient fortress and in the typical farmhouse near it. The fortress dating back to the 13th Century became a luxurious Villa in the 18th Century and, together with the farmhouses it overlooks the green beautiful valley of our Farm.This part of Siena's province is one of the most gorgeous area in Tuscany!We are between town (at 50mt, shop and restaurant walking distance) and the countryside (you can hike or bike in our Farm), so you can really enjoy both situations! We are on biker's guide as a good starting point to visit the Montagnola senese and Val di Merse areas by bike.Since 18th century Cavaglioni has been owned by our family and the Villa still preserves intact the original furniture and paintings.You can easily visit Siena and we organize your wine or sight-seeing tours to Montalcino, San Gimignano, San Galgano, Volterra, Pienza, Montepulciano, ChiantiWe rent bikes; we can organize your activities like cooking class, italian language class, horseback-riding and more.There are huge green areas that our guests can use for walks, barbecue, relax.In our Farms we produce a great Chianti red wine and extra-virgin olive oil that you can taste and purchase.Berenice and Anna Maria, daughter and mother, speak perfect English and French and are happy to welcome and help all travellers.Great breakfast is served in the morning!We also rent self-catering apartments for 2, 4, 6 or 8 people for short or long term, located near the Villa, all of them with fireplace. Weekly rentals are very convenient.At the Farm we often organize unique music events and other art performances.Please advise about arrival time.Check-in 12pm to 7pm.NOTE: we are the same owners of Fattoria Palazzo di Piero at Montepulciano, check it out!

I stayed here a few years ago when I was travelling around Europe with a friend, we stayed in ALOT of places and encountered various kinds of accommodation (both very good and both very bad) but I’m happy to say that this was by far one of the highlights of our entire three month trip!
The owner is a lovely woman who owns and runs the place with her mother and they made our stay fantastic! Staying in the actual mansion made me feel as though I had travelled back in time to what Italy was like hundreds of years ago, the place was clean, comfortable and welcoming. Everyone who stayed there were very pleasant and we actually made some good friends, but you can spend time alone if that is what you are looking for, the mansion has acres of grounds surrounding it so you can go on lovely long walks. There is a small town not that far if you want to get a feel for a more local Italian atmosphere, (which is a good chance to brush up on your Italian!). Also the main town isn’t that far (I think a bus ride away) and that’s a great tourist spot, with loads of little roads and cobbled streets. Our trip actually coincided with the Palio that was on at the time which also was amazing.
Our stay was truly magical, we actually cancelled some other parts of our trip so we could extend our stay - trust me this is a place you do not want to miss out on and once you go you’ll never want to leave!

these guys were fantastic. The lady who hosted us was so good natured and friendly and had great local knowledge and really helped us out. The place was always tidy and and the rustic farm stay itself was truly fantastic looking and is the perfect place to stay for a tuscan retreat. Bus stop is literally right out side so easy to get in to siena. We had such a great time here, possibly the best place we stayed at in our whole 1 month europe trip. Recommended.
Breakfast fresh crossaints, juice, coffee and breads along with wonderful jams they served were the perfect wake up to start the day. A stroll through their massive yard on massive green land in the afternoon along with a dip in their swimming pool was also a nice touch.
during two months of travelling, my 8 night stay ( extended from 6!) was the highlight , and the best place i have stayed! Fattoria di cavaglioni is an amazing place to be, surrounded by beautiful tuscan countryside , but within a short bus ride of siena. It was perfect!!!! the atmosphere in the fattoria is like no other, you are guaranteed a warm welcome and will instantly feel at home. I miss it so much i want to go back !
---Thank you for a wonderful time in siena!!!!
