What is an Agriturismo in Tuscany?

Staying at Corsignano is a moment. An emotion. An atmosphere. A great memory. A magical event. But it is not a hotel. 

It is a farmhouse. A way of spending a vacation, in the countryside, in nature, with the rooster’s morning song, small dirt roads (maybe a little dusty in the summer), the clean air, the fiery sunsets, and the starlit sky…

Don’t confuse us with a hotel or with the reception of a hotel. Our way of offering services is different. Our services are different (the breakfasts, dinners, wine tastings and cooking courses). And if something is not to your expectations, kindly tell us, and we will do our best to fulfill your requests.

Keep in mind, we can make mistakes, but our wish is to offer you a great memory of emotion, familiarity, hospitality and friendliness.

An agriturismo is a working farm with accommodations and so we have not only accommodations but we produce Chianti Classico as well as other wines, grappa, vin santo and extra virgin olive oil. We are also in the final stages of becoming organic (18 months left for the certification as of this posting).

Staying at Corsignano.

The four country homesteads have been converted into charming apartments.

All of them have been restored uniquely and with care: some in original Tuscan style with terracotta floors, wood beamed ceilings and stonewalls, others with walls coloured of sage, blush, saffron, sky blue and ochre yellow.

The furnishing is refined and accurate. Chests, furniture, glass cases… and antique relics which we discovered in the local markets and had them restored by the experienced touch of the local artisans, and then… branches, vases, glass and ceramics.

The photovoltaic system of 15 KW produces most of the consumed energy and allows us to save 4 tons of petrol yearly and avoids the emission of 10 tons of CO2, equal to the quantity absorbed by 2 hectars wood every year.

Our apartments & suites

Every accommodation is unique, a “home away from home” with a wonderful view of Siena or the Chianti valley.

Our accommodations do not have air conditioning but the natural climate in the Chianti valley always provides a light breeze ensuring comfortable temperatures in the apartments even in the warmest months of the year.

For the winter months each apartment has its own heating system which you can regulate to your liking.

Staying in an agriturismo

If you decide to stay in an agriturismo, you will get to experience true charm by getting involved in the life that we live here in the Chianti, enjoy the true food of the area (we believe in the “filiera corta a tavola” philosophy which means if we do not produce it, we buy it only from local and qualified producers), the wine that we produce, the views and above all else, the good feeling you get when you are one with nature.
