Best Agriturismo Farm Stays in Tuscany with Swimming Pool

What is an Agriturismo Farm Stay?

  • Staying at an Tuscan farmhouse or Agriturismo is one of the highlights of a trip to Tuscany. If you have the time you should definitely make the effort.
  • Accommodations range from simple rooms to luxury agriturismo. Most include breakfast and some also offer lunch and dinner (for a fee).
  • Many agriturismo, but not all, have minimum stays (3 to 7 nights).
  • To be a true agriturismo the farm must earn more money from agricultural activities than room rentals. Places that do not fall into this category are usually called B&Bs or farmhouses.
  • Agriturismo vacations have become very popular so plan on booking 4 to 6 months in advance – and even longer if visiting between June and September.
  • Renting a car is close to essential for getting to most agriturismo farms.
  • Popular options: Agriturismo with swimming pool are great for kids. Many agriturismo offer cooking classes (highly recommended). Some agriturismo provide breakfast and dinner so a kitchen is convenient for preparing snacks and light lunch.
  • Booking.com – The best site for booking Agriturismo in Tuscany. (Good rates and the best selection.)

12 Questions and Comments

  1. Best Time for Agriturismo Visit

    HI, my girlfriend and I are traveling to Tuscany at the end of March for 10 days. We are booked 3 day in Florence and looking to go to Sienna, Lucca, and Cinque Terre, possibly San Gimignano. Is an agriturismo a good place to stay in late March, as it’s probably quite cold. Somehow it seems that being on a farm at that time of year won’t afford us the outdoor beauty of being outside to enjoy what the farm has to offer in warmer months.
    Any suggestions are very welcome!
    Gracie Mille!

      Weather is variable in March so you’re wise in expecting/preparing for anything but most years I think a March visit will be great. Countryside is green and farms busy with work. I would be more concerned with the Cinque Terre in March than an Agriturismo – paths between the villages are sometimes washed out due to winter rains and boats between coastal towns don’t start until April 1 (usually). When it’s cold and rainy on an Agriturismo you can usually find something interesting to do (cooking classes are great) but in the Cinque Terre it can feel sorta miserable.

  2. Agriturismo for Family of 4

    HI,

    We’re going in April with my kids 10 and 13 – would love something with animals and have the ability to do a cooking class. Ideas?

      Poggio Tre Lune would be perfect but no animals (besides a few cats and dogs). I can’t think of any Agriturismo where farm animals play an integral role. The orientation is more agricultural than farm animal.

  3. Tuscany Farmhouse for Holiday

    I’ve been to Tuscany last summer, a great, unique place. I visited San Gimignano, they are beautiful landscapes and the historic center is very nice and the people are very friendly. I stayed at the Raccianello Farmhouse, I recommend going there, a very nice place to relax and enjoy the holiday.

      Wow. Looks great. Thanks for the tip.

  4. Agriturismo near Florence with Cooking Class

    Hi Dave,
    Looking for a farmstay north of Florence, maybe Bologna (?) for early June. Ideally one that offers cooking classes or other food/wine or outdoor related activities on the farm. Any suggestions?
    Thanks, Amber

    1. Santorini DaveSantorini Dave Hotels + Travel

      Poggio Tre Lune is an agriturismo near Florence, beautiful, and has cooking courses put on by the owners.

  5. Agriturismo in Tuscany

    We are looking for the ‘right’ place for 7 nights in April in Tuscany Agriturismo for ‘luna di miele’ and there seem to be so many wonderful places – trying to narrow down best place for location, accessibility to the local sites/wineries, towns and allow one to immerse in the Tuscan culture…

      You’re right, there are many. The good news is that most are very high quality (I’ve never heard of someone having a bad experience – I’m sure it does happen but it’s rare). I find the ratings on Booking.com/farm-stays are a very good signal for quality. A rating of 8.0 or above consistently means it’s good. 9.0 or above and it’s usually great.

  6. Agriturismo Villa near Florence with Cooking Class

    The villas you’ve listed look wonderful but most are fully booked for our dates in early September. Can you recommend a Agriturismo that is beautiful and offers cooking classes for a family? Also need a swimming pool, preferably, and within a short drive of Florence.

    1. Santorini DaveSantorini Dave Hotels + Travel

      The Poggio Tre Lune agriturismo/farmhouse is beautiful and run by a very friendly family. Nice pool and they do cooking courses where you’ll make some delicious food. Located close to Florence. September is still high season for agriturismos so I can’t promise they’ll have availability for your dates, but otherwise this ticks all your boxes.
