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.
How to Get There
This small family run organic farm 20 minutes from Siena was the best experience we had in Tuscany. On arrival we had booked a cooking class, the room was a traditional Tuscan setting with a chef that didn’t speak English but we had a translator Mario who was very funny. We laughed as we learnt to make pasta and got to know the staff. We were then taken for a tour of the winery and onto sampling wines all evening as we were brought traditional Tuscan 4 course meal. If you come here you MUST do the cooking class that includes dinner and wines.
This large property is absolutely amazing, from the breathtaking views across the countryside and to the Castle of Poppi, to the very well kept grounds and lovely gardens, nooks and corners and two beautiful pools (closed at this time of the year). We stayed in apartment Beppe, which was a two bedroom and two bathrooms accommodation with two covered balconies, a very well equipped kitchen and a cozy living room with fireplace. The apartment was spotless and in perfect conditions and the manager Simona is a lovely person, who really cares for here guests. We enjoyed our stay in this property very much and will be back! Thank you!
Our family of eight had a wonderful time cooking our delicious Tuscan Lunch. The chef and staff were fantastic in teaching us how to prepare delicious Pappa al Pomodoro, fresh pasta Pappardelle , Chicken Prosciutto Sage Rollandes, and a decadent chocolate molten cake for dessert. The entire day we were tasting their excellent wines! This was certainly a highlight of our trip to Tuscany. Highly recommend to anyone wanting an authentic Tuscan experience! Thank you to all at Fattoria di Corsignano!
We celebrated our wedding at this beautiful and peaceful property with our families and friends in October 2017 after we fell in love with it visiting in November 2016. We cannot describe how thankful we are that we chose Fattoria di Corsignano for our special day.
We spent one weekend with our guests and everybody was more than satisfied with the location, the staff, the food and and typical tuscan atmosphere we love so much.
From the very beginning while planning the wedding we felt so well cared with so much professionality that we knew we just made the right decision to celebrate our wedding at our favoured place instead of Germany.
We were so lucky to try some food and speak about all the details personally when we stayed at the Fattoria in summer 2017. Dada & Brenda from the reception were ALWAYS kind and helpful and also Elena was so kind to take time to arrange a meeting with a Florist and translated for us, etc. :-)
When we arrived in Ocotber there was such a familiar atmosphere and we felt so welcome! Our wedding day and the whole weekend was more than perfect and every detail we planned was implemented with so much love.
All our expectations were exceeded by far and we had a wedding that we, our families and friends will always be remembered!! We will definately come back soon because this became our „happy place“ :-)
We read some of the last comments and cannot understand about the criticism and are ashamed of our compatriots. For sure everybody can feel free to criticize if something wasn’t okay but if you choose a biological and ecofriendly Agriturismo you cannot complain about some insects or a not 100% working WiFi connection. If you read correctly about where the location is situated you will be informed very well and if you prefer your daily breakfast habits instead of trying something new you‘d better stay at home. Also: Only speaking people can be helped!
We can only say that we found a perfect and familiar property with professional and kind people taking care of their guests, doing a great job!
Thank you so much!!
We had a wonderful time at Fattoria di Corsignano. Our suite was lovely with a great view of the vineyard and Tuscan Hills. The service was great and the office provided many recommendations and reserved activities and restaurants on the phone for us. The wine was delicious and reasonably priced, we did a tasting. The breakfast each morning was delicious with a huge spread. Very quaint and quite in the country side. The cats on the property were so sweet too!
