Wandering among the cypresses around a 100-year-old house, surrounded by the organic vineyards and olive trees of the Italian countryside – the Tuscan idyll doesn’t get much better than this. Acquapietra is a privately owned guesthouse with just six bedrooms, where you can enjoy the peace and natural beauty of one of Italy’s loveliest regions in luxury and comfort.
The décor of the recently renovated property is pleasantly in keeping with the surrounding countryside, from its historic stone exterior to the fresh white walls and exposed beams inside. Here you can enjoy the simple pleasures of life, whether sipping a glass of chilled white wine overlooking the hills or cooking a meal of garden-fresh ingredients in the shared kitchen.
There’s also a cool communal living room with music and books, and the friendly owners can arrange horse riding, cooking classes, motorbike tours, Vespa rental and a variety of excursions. If you feel like a day trip, you’re a half an hour’s drive from the incredible history and culture of Florence.
How to Get There
I have stayed only two nights in August and I wish I have booked more. Owner is great, very friendly and full of useful tips to make best of your stay. Her breakfast cakes are absolutely delicious. Also the surrounding is simply stunning.
If you plan to stay in the area it's a place to be.
After 2 weeks of touring on a bike all the way from Scotland we finally arrived at this B&B...the moment we started to decent down in to the Vineyard valleys we knew this was going to be an experience we will never forget. The moment we arrived at the house...we were warmly greeted by Alice and then accompanied to our room (the whole house / room(s) decorated in a very artistic vibe), which was very neat clean and tidy...we loved it! We loved the view of the vineyards outside our window...and every other part of the property was just perfect. Breakfast spread was very nice clean and simple...especially when you are enjoying it from a balcony with an amazing backdrop of hills and vineyards....living the dream. We also had the opportunity to meet Alice's partner Carlo and Pietro, they were both amazing. Alice and Carlo were very helpful and went an extra mile to give us tips and information about restaurants,winery's, places to visit as well as nice roads to ride on as they are also bikers themselves...this was very much appreciated and we will never forget this experience! We will definitely visit again in the near future...and would like to thank the family and staff for an amazing stay which we will never forget xxxx
We arrived to Acquapietra in the afternoon after a long ride and we were lovely recieved by the owner. She explained the property to us and showed us around. Her and her partner were very helpful, informative and great hosts. They have lots of tips on how to get to all the places and very good recomendations for food and wine.
They have a dog and a cat who are super cool and friendly.
The rooms are clean and very very nicely decorated with an artistic touch.
Also the breakfast is typical mediterranean with home made bread and jam, we really enjoyed it.
Overall our stay in Acquapietra was fantastic and we hope to come back next time to actually enjoy the peacefull property a bit more as this time it was a quick stay of two days.
Thanks a lot
We stayed for two nights at Acquapietra during our tour around Tuscany.
The place looks exactly as on the pictures, including stunning panoramic views of vineyards. It is a typical beautiful Tuscany house with modern facilities and unique spirit.
Our room was spacious and clean. The homemade breakfast was fantastico. Alice gave us great tips for visiting exclusive and authentic places in Florence.
Check-in and check-out went smooth.
Thanks a lot to Alice and her team Kelly & Carren! We enjoyed our stay very much!
This place is great for peaceful holidays, far away from city crowds but yet not far from Florence or Siena. The room has a rustic decor and nice view on the vineyards, it is very clean and despite lack of air conditioning it is nicely cool at night, one can sleep with open windows. This is a place, where you can feel "like at home", the owners are very friendly and happy to give tips about places to visit in Tuscany. The breakfast is delicious, served on the terasse. We cooked our own dinner in the common kitchen (there are pasta and sauces available for a small charge) but you can also ask the owners to cook for you. Overall it was a great experience and we highly recommend this place.
