When authenticity meets perfection!
Easy to find with Google.
A piece of heaven in Italy with a beautiful garden and great food. The water in the Swimmingpool is cold and clea.
The rooms are cozy and bright.
The service is beyond perfection.
Highly recommended!

My husband and I spent four beautiful nights at this charming inn. Everything from the people to the location to the accommodations the food and wine completely exceeded all expectations. Breakfasts were a work of art, dinners were unrushed and meticulously prepared. Highly recommend - I pray that we can return again someday.

This fabulous farmhouse has been beautifully renovated to very high standards. The gardens are like an English country house and the ambience is very romantic and peaceful. There is s large quiet swimming pool with plenty of comfortable sunbeds and towels provided. It's definitely a hidden gem and sadly we were only there for 1 night. Their wonderful restaurant only has products produced on the farm and the service was 6 star. From the towels provided in the rooms, which were carefully tied with ribbon and the lovely slippers this 145 year old family business have thought of everything.

What a lovely place…
The “relais” belongs to a farm where they produce almost everything themselves: wine, olive oil, fruit, vegetables and meat. The food for both dinner as well as breakfast is all “kilometre zero”, meaning from the own property, except for the cheese. The quality and taste of it is very high. You feel privileged when the weather is good, but not good enough to eat outside, when you are seated in a greenhouse (the old lemon house) to enjoy your breakfast or dinner.
The rooms are well equipped, with a traditional look and feel but with modern comfort. Comfortable beds, a good shower and comfy sofa, it is all very pleasant.
The staff is friendly and so is the property owner Alberto.

Typically, I always have some critical remarks to make, but here it felt hard, if not impossible. This place is really recommendable for a holiday under the Tuscan sun.

Truly lovely little B and B. Staff was very friendly, accommodating, and patient with our somewhat ill-behaved toddler. We had several meals there. Dinner is excellent—they grow and produce almost all the ingredients in their farm—and breakfast similarly delightful. Picturesque setting. Rooms are a good size, well appointed, beds are reasonably comfy. My only disappointment is it was a bit chilly when we stayed so we didn’t get to visit the pool.

Great location, spacious comfortable room, outstanding breakfast. Probably the best we have experienced. The staff was friendly and very helpful. All in all a very enjoyable experience. Try the house wine. With good weather, the various outside seating areas and the pool must be very enjoyable.

A wonderful stay with fantastic food and a super service. A family "farm" in the 4th generation. Spacious roms and outstanding athmosphere in beautiful Tuscany.
Our car broke and Alfonso - the owner - brought the car to MB and it was returned the same day!

I am not a vindictive person, so I was really dragging to write this review. However I feel obligated as I do not wish to anyone this same experience that I had with Fattoria Il Cipresso.

In September 2017 me and my husband travelled to Tuscany to look for wedding venues for our wedding day end of May 2018. Everyone already warned me to be very careful when doing wedding planning without wedding planner in Italy and especially Tuscany region. I am a Personal Assistant and organise a lot of Global (corporate) events (70 pax +) you would think I would be able to organize my own wedding (30 pax).

We came across Fattoria Il Cipresso via booking.com and we were in the region so we called whether we could stop by to have a look. It was a rainy day in September and when we arrived we were greeted by the friendly Alberto (the owner) and he showed us around and turned on the beautiful lighting and we were sold! The next day I’ve called him to inform him that we wanted to work with him and we wanted to stop by to taste the food and the wines. The next day we had a lovely dinner, Alberto showed us around and we blocked the 2 nights stay of the complete cantina relais and he provided us with his menu prices and wine list prices. We had discussed over email that when all prices are ready we would make a summary to have a contract drafted.

We stayed over the months in touch and we had agreements on the prices that were fixed a lot of details were discussed over email. We were planning to get back end of March/April to finalise the last arrangements and also to go to the party equipment rental place to have everything all ready for the big day. Our wedding invites were sent to all our guests at this time our friends and family had booked their travel to Tuscany. We had an amazing time at our stay at the Fattoria Il Cipresso and Alberto even opened up his home to us when returning in April. Wedding planning could not have been better. The rooms are super nice, the staff is so friendly and warm, we thought we could not wish for more.

4 weeks in advance of our wedding, being 1,5 week back in Amsterdam after our amazing stay at Fattoria Il Cipresso. Alberto dropped us a bomb over email the total price for the wedding doubled. We did not understand where this was coming from and we immediately sent him a reply that we cannot have the wedding there. He came back to the original prices but removed almost everything so we still had nothing… Then the ping pong emails started, a few 100 more for this a 1k more for that, every time we received an email from him it was bad news. I’d analysed his extra costs he and they did not make sense at all and he could not justify the costs.

After a week of ping pong emails we felt the relationship was so damaged we wanted to have a skype call with Alberto to discuss face to face instead of email all agreements we have made now suddenly were of the table or it was not possible. Even the price lists he gave us in September himself they were according to him not valid anymore.

Alberto replied very emotionally, he did not want to have a skype call nor a contract and wished us a very nice life. After a week or so he sent us an email whether we still want to continue or he would release the rooms for the 2 nights on booking.com. I have checked some quotations, that I have received from wedding planners and Fattoria Il Cipresso was way more expensive than what was quoted including the services of a wedding planner, so we were not being cheapskates. We decided to end the cooperation with him as the relationship was so damaged and we felt very uncomfortable. Good luck, bad luck it is all luck, we did not pay any deposit so we were free to walk.

In one week I’d planned my wedding at another venue, sent new invites to our guests and walked away from the drama he has caused. We wish not be treated as cash cows but as human beings. I would not wish this amount of stress to my worst enemy, complete waste of time.

We were very sorry that this happened to us and do not wish did to any couple wanted to get married in Tuscany. It should be the most beautiful time in your life.

A night to remember. We sat outside in a beautifully appointed glasshouse while the owner, Alberto, described the night’s menu. He explained how everything we would eat (with the exception of a local artesian cheese) came from the farm. The bread was made from grain milled at the farm, the olive oil from their trees, the meat from their herd, the wine from their grapes.
There is no point to me describing the precise dishes we ate because they change depending on the items being harvested at any particular time. Suffice to say that whatever is on the menu the night one would choose to dine at the farm, it will be a meal of the highest quality that would be remembered for quite some time.
The pride of house and presentation is evident in every description Alberto gives to every course. The property has been in his family for 187 yrs and he is carrying on the family tradition in a stellar manner.
If you find yourself anywhere near this area of Tuscany, La Cantina Relais should top your list of places to eat.

We loved this agriturismo- it is very recently restored so the rooms were spotless with modern bathrooms. Our host was charming and very proud of his farm/fattoria. The food was phenomenal- the best we have had in Italy so far!

Answer from Alberto M

Dear Sally, the closest airport is sure Florence and Pisa, there is also a little airport in Perugia but I think the connection is only from UK to Italy. If you need also a transfer we can arrange for you from the airport to our Farm. if you need any other info don't hesitate to ask us have a good day Alberto Marcelli
