Eat, drink and be merry in unadulterated rustic comfort. Set among rolling hills covered in vineyards and olive groves just outside Siena, in the heart of the Chianti Classico region, Fattoria de Corsigano is an eco-friendly, organic winery where you can totally immerse yourself in the traditional Tuscan way of life. Its dusky pink, red-tiled farmhouse, rustic converted outbuildings, tree-shaded swimming pool and rambling gardens strewn with roses, scented herbs and cypresses all make for a truly blissful setting.
Your hosts, Elena and Mario, embrace the eco-friendly way of life with passion and dedication. At this TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence winner, water comes straight from one of three wells, energy is generated by solar panels, and the restaurant follows a zero-miles food-chain philosophy. What could be more tempting that feasting on local produce and homegrown wines prepared with age-old secrets and family recipes? Wine tasting and cooking classes mean you can pick up a few tips to take home with you, too.
Country suites, set apart in the gardens, are typically Tuscan in style, with terracotta floors, wood-beamed ceilings and pale pink or ochre-washed stone walls. They have a private entrance, plus double doors leading to a private terrace with comfy garden furniture.
The rustic farmhouse restaurant prepares authentic Tuscan dishes with pride: bruschetta, salami, fresh pasta with classic sauces and meats braised on the open fire. All this deliciousness is accompanied by perfectly matched, homegrown wines. “He who eats well goes far” is a much-loved family motto here, and it’s easy to see why.
Fattoria di Corsigano is reached via a dirt road less than half a mile from the hamlet of Corsigano, with basic shopping available in Vagliagli. Siena is around 15 minutes away, and Florence about an hour. Day trips can be made to Pisa, Perugia and Lucca, and also to the traditional villages of San Gimignano, Pienza and Montepulciano. The whole region is dotted with castles, abbeys and monasteries, many of which are open to visitors. You can also hop on one of the estate’s bicycles and roam the many country trails.

Frattoria di Corsigniano is not just a place... it is much more then that! It was one of the most authentic experiences in Tuscany we had! This place is beautifully situated between olive groves, vineyards and cyprus trees... with a view of Siena!
Great food, nice pool area, comfortable apartment, friendly staff.
We stayed for 2 nights and hope to come back sometime for longer. It was all so beautiful and serene! The property is incredibly gorgeous, and we would’ve loved to spend more time outside on the lawn.
Our 1-bedroom apartment was clean and updated. We even had a small private yard and covered patio, which we didn’t expect. It was a pleasant surprise. The apartment was a bit rustic (bugs inside and a leaky ceiling) but we would stay again. The bikes we paid to rent were not in good working order, and the provided WiFi password never worked. Other than that, we were very pleased.
The food was delicious! Best we’ve had on our whole trip. Mario from the restaurant was very helpful and friendly. We enjoyed talking with him and learning about the fattoria from him.
I would suggest this place as a good home base in Tuscany for a few days. A family of 4 could’ve lived comfortably in our 1-bed apartment. Maybe rent a car so that you can tour during the day. I suggest buying your own groceries and self catering a couple times if you want to save money. The restaurant is delicious but not affordable for many days in a row.
The wine was our favorite we’ve ever had! We will miss this place and hope to come back someday. It was a very special retreat from the tourist crowds.
