IL PIAGGIONE DI SERRAVALLE
The Piaggione of Serravalle, at a first glance, appears as a gem naturally cast on the highest ridges of the Chianti hills of Central Tuscany, and as a jewel it shines with its authentic flavors, ancient traditions and silent stillness.
Shaded and enclosed by oak woods and shrouded by the greenness of its olive trees and vineyards, it mingles within the horizons of the grandeur of the Tuscan countryside that is still genuine and remarkably unspoilt. The structure of Piaggione consists of two spacious apartments, one holds four, the other, three bedrooms and a separate two bedroom cottage. Among these, the Loggia, which houses a wellness center embellished by an exotic touch. On the top floor a spa tub and an infrared sauna and, accessing via a staircase, you will approach a somewhat hidden room used for massages and turkish baths on the bottom floor.
At Piaggione of Serravalle you will discover La Loggia , a small wellness paradise. Created from the predilection of the family for aesthetics, health and body care, La Loggia, with its large windows, treasures the most precious secrets for a complete physical and mental relaxation. You can let yourself go under soothing jets of hot water or to the 37 ° C of the indoor hot tub. In alternative, you can be enveloped by the warm therapeutic infrared sauna, until it reaches the adjustable temperatures up to 65 ° C. In between sessions, you can relax on our ergonomic lounge chairs, underneath the beautiful orchids and tropical plants. Descending the stone steps from La Loggia you will access the hammam area, inspired by the most renowned spas of the Etruscans and the Romans and a room entirely dedicated to the art of massage, with a comfortable shower and the glittering mosaics of the Turkish bath. The steam bath together with the chromotherapy and aromatherapy, as well as being beneficial to the skin and respiratory system, contributes to the proper relaxation of the mind and the body.

Small paths and stone steps cut into the gardens that slope down the valley, designing silent hidden nooks that make its way through the forests. In this enchanting setting, stand out the modern sculptures of famed artist Alberto Inglesi that will accompany your quaint countryside strolls and hikes.

The Piaggione of Serravalle is a lively farm that is in constant action and that brings forth its daily activities that are carried out in order to achieve a balance of eco-friendly status that are , rational and respectful of the rules that prevail in nature and that characterizes its existence in every detail. Plants and animals, placed at the center of activities, have always been treated like human beings and therefore have the best care and attention to undergo the strictest quality controls that strive for excellence as well as for superb genuineness. The seasonal cycle of activities, therefore, commence in spring with the most suitable positioning of the plants, sowing the seeds and the maintenance of gardens, vineyards and olive groves. During the summer we proceed mainly with the picking of fruits and vegetables and then we begin canning the food for the winter and start collecting the wood for the colder months. Autumn however, is the most busy period since we deal first with the grape harvest and later with the olive picking. We also commence all the various processes for the production of wine and oil, the squeezing and the pressing and we also collect the wild fruits from our forests , traditionally considered to be one of the bases that characterize our local cuisine. During the winter, with the arrival of the frosts we end our labors but we also have to start preparing the land for the new year to come and we have time to devote ourselves to more domestic chores. Of course we always have our farm animals to look after. The food processing is challenging and goes hand in hand with the local tradition, to sustain the authenticity of ancient flavors and discovering new ones, thus giving the opportunity to gourmet fanatics to acquire the most authentic recipes , the methods of cultivation and preservation . The culinary skills of Camilla, joined with the hard labors of Alberto, will allow you to take advantage of the exquisite cold meats, salamis, bruschette and cheeses produced on the farm and we will be honored to prepare you memorable full course meals with traditional dishes, accompanied by Chianti DOC and DOP Extra Virgin Olive Oil; all obviously of our own produce and of course our products can be purchased directly on the farm. Camilla also offers her services as a professional tour guide, organizing trips and excursions all over Siena and its territory and enriching them with thorough descriptions and explanations. Albert, instead, offers his own experience and skills in the arts, by offering sculpture and painting classes. Among the various projects under construction, in the future Piaggione will be able to offer cooking classes as well as organizing educational strolls along the paths of the vegetable gardens. Also at a stones throw from Piaggione recently has been established a horseback riding center , with a full range of activities related to equestrian trekking through the ancient roads of the Chianti hills.

A lovely farmhouse with breathtaking views and the most charming owners. Getting to the villa is a bit of an off road experience, but it is doable with normal cars. The house is rustic and has its own character. If you are looking for an authentic experience, this is it - if you prefer 5 star hotel luxury, this may not be your perfect choice.
We were 16 adults, and enjoyed every second of our stay. All rooms are slightly different and some are smaller than others, so we decided to draw lots for them. A few rooms are with double beds, some with twin beds.
Pool is a nice size, but it is not heated, whereas the jacuzzi is. Pool has a fantastic view over the surrounding countryside. Spa environment is pretty unique.
Meals provided by Camilla and Alberto left nothing to wish for, and especially the pizza party was something we definitely recommend. The welcome dinner is a good idea if everybody is travelling that day - a great way to start your stay.
Plenty of wine available, produced by the owners, and it is of a pretty good quality if you like the Chianti/Sangiovese type of wine. They also produce great olive oil.
Camilla speaks good English and can provide a really informative and entertaining guided tour of Siena - highly recommended. The owners actually live on site, so they are available for any questions and support needed.
A Tuscan dream
Camilla's place is a jewel in the middle of a beautiful setting!! So many areas where you can sit and take in the beauty of the country side.

grazi per la bella recensione
Our family loved your special home!
Staying at Camilla's place was a highlight of our three-week trip to Italy for our family of four. The apartment was very large, with everything we needed. We loved spending time on the huge terrace, with amazing views of the hillside. The pool and hot tub were amazing. Our hosts, Camilla and Alberto, were amazing. It's very private and off the main road but it was very easy to go into Siena and elsewhere in the area. Highly recommend.
Beautiful Tuscan Vacation
Superbe semaine en famille chez nos Hôtes Camilla et Alberto. Le domaine est proche de Sienne et dans un cadre vraiment magnifique. N'hésitez surtout pas à déguster les plats savoureux concoctés par Camilla et Alberto avec une mention particulière pour la Pizza Party !!! Que de bons souvenirs à Main House ! Merci à eux ND
“Everything we hoped it would be - and more”
We had a wonderful time. It was much more than we had even hoped for. Our accommodation was much more spacious than we had imagined: the photos don't do it justice in that sense. Italian friends came to visit and said the view from our balcony must be one of the best in Tuscany. We sat out there every night. Camilla and Alberto were wonderful hosts. We booked Camilla for a tour of Sienna a couple of days before the Palio: the atmosphere in the city was electric and Camilla's enthusiasm was infectious. Alberto was unfailingly friendly and kinder than we could possibly have anticipated. We enjoyed buying eggs, vegetables, wine and olive oil from Alberto & Camilla and our final night we had a pizza party where Alberto cooked fantastic pizza in a wood fire oven. The local area is a joy to explore, and Siena is handy enough. Highly recommended to soak up the Tuscan way of life. It can be hot in the bedrooms if it is the heat of summer, but there were shutters to shade the windows during the day, and provided you don't have the lights on when the bedroom windows are open, mosquitos in the bedrooms were no issue for us. You do need repellant/coils if you want to sit outside late into the evening without the odd bite. Finding it: you will drive up a hill through Vagliagli as you follow the website instructions/your sat nav./the location on Google Maps. Stay on that road (keep the faith) and you will pass through 'Cignano' (there is a sign), come over the crest of a hill and the ? second driveway to the right has a stone Obelisk (like the ones they carried around in Asterix & Obelix). Take that driveway, its not the first house to the left but instead you continue down the gravel drive and you will find it at the end.
Beautiful Tuscan Vacation
Camilla and Alberto are fantastic hosts. Friendly, energetic, interesting and accommodating. They made us feel at home. We enjoyed chatting with them and learning more about their home, Tuscany, Siena, Alberto's work, etc. Camilla speaks perfect English and was a pleasure to chat with. Alberto may not speak English (and we don't speak Italian), but we managed to have some great conversations in spite of the language barrier. The property is just gorgeous. Rustic and beautiful with sweeping vistas. Alberto has many of his sculptures throughout the property. We loved it. We stayed in the La Grande portion of the villa which includes 3 bedrooms a large living room, large dining room and a beautiful deck. We visited with our three kids (17, 9 and 6) and we had a great time. The younger ones enjoyed exploring the farm and visiting the animals. In addition to a few restaurants within a 5 minute drive, Camilla and Alberto also offer some meal options. They made us a delicious dinner the night we arrived and we had a pizza party the last night. Both meals were excellent! It is also very convenient to travel to Siena (15-20 min), Florence (45 min) and many Tuscan hill towns. We really enjoyed our time and highly recommend their beautiful property. We look forward to going back someday. Thank you Camilla and Alberto!
