A wonderful stay in a very beautiful house, full of charm and surrounded by nature ! Very nice food and outstanding welcome. Housekeeper very kind and caring. Looked like a family stay.
Nature and surroundings. Good food and wine ! Very personal welcome. Alessandra is really a delicious person full of passion.

Superbe !!
Tout est positif: Nous étions 3 couples d'amis. C'était génial avec la piscine,et les chambres privées avec les salles de bain privées. La maison est très belle. Notre hôtesse, Alessandra était tout simplement parfaite: gentille, serviable, aimable, bonne cuisinière, interactive. Le site est magnifique parmi les vignes et les oliviers. Le vin et l'huile d'olive sont vraiment bons. Rufina est un joli village près de Florence qu'il faut aussi visiter.

Wonderful trip to Rufina.
Rooms were beautiful and as described online.
While being close to the main road, the entrance was very close, not allowing any pedestrian to walk.

Nous avons été remarquablement acceuilli, les diners organisés par Alessandra sont des moments uniques de rencontres, de convivialité et cela autour d'une cuisine authentique et savoureuse.
L'accueil, le cadre, la facilité d'accès.

Excelent trip
The house is amusing, the owner really kind, really closed from Florence is worth it 25 min trip and stay in the villa
there are not good restaurants in the area for lunch, the good think is that you can use the kitchen of the house
thank you so much to stay with us!!!

Very uncomfortable beds. No local products for breakfast. Poor service.
Pleasant and helpful owner.
Not so generous.
For many years, our structure and 'open houses with great pleasure and customers from all over the world, with different habits and cultures. For our part, we try to give the best, while remaining connected to our traditions of hospitality, 'not of 5 star hotel, but at home, that is' close relationship with the host, and to always come in handy in times of need 'and for this reason we wish our guests a sincere relationship and direct. Our beds and futons were handmade by Florentine artisans and for years our clientele appreciates them. Of course the additional beds that are located in rooms or apartments offered for free, are suitable for boys or for overnight stays and short course are less comfortable than others and this is why our customers are always informed. The typical Italian breakfast is prepared with simple but fresh and wholesome foods. The bread is always fresh, but it is the typical Tuscan Bread that - perhaps - to give the impression of someone can not be done just right. I assure you, though, that the baker of Rufina we often see:-) Our rooms and apartments are all clean, and if there were to escape something, it would be like to be informed immediately, in order to provide better service and make more 'pleasant the stay of our guests THANK YOU

clamorosamente senza TV in camera, gravissimo in tempo di mondiali
animali di casa presenti in sala pranzo ??? !!!
Il ns. agriturismo , come segnalato sul nostro sito web, e' da sempre "PET FRIENDLY" e naturalmente si possono incontrare animali domestici . Offriamo gratuitamente WI-FI internamente ed esternamente alla ns. struttura, tanto da poter offrire a tutti i ns. clienti un accesso all'informazione di qualsiasi tipo e gradimento , ma allo stesso tempo a far si che rimanga un luogo di tranquillità.

The view from our upstairs room was beautiful, the host Alessandra was excellent and spoke good English, she cooked dinner for us one night, which was a blessing because we were exhausted! We enjoyed the outdoor patio table, access to the kitchen and we especially enjoyed the wine tasting that Alessandra privately did for us! We also enjoy a relaxing, slow drive through the countryside of Florence, Alessandra recommended we stop at a local cafe who had the best salamis, cheeses, bread and many other great items, we purchase a bottle of wine and enjoy a picnic outside overlooking the great view. This was a great place with no tourist and the locals were super friendly, a very enjoyable day!!
Great host who speaks good English, comfortable bed and nice size room with 2 windows, full kitchen access, good farm produced wines, relaxing atmosphere, near by small town with laundromat and an easy 25 min ride to the city of Florence/Firenzie via the train.
Although I believe the farm does not have a clothing dryer, the bath towels were coarse and had a scent of fire ashes. Sorry Alessandra, this was the only negative, overall we had a very good time and really enjoyable our stay with you!
Dear Kelly and Jim, thank you so much........and I hope to meet you again

Beautiful, relaxing farmhouse reachable by train from Florence
The room was clean and bright. The farmhouse itself is rustic looking but with modern comforts. The pool was terrific and there were many little nooks and crannies around the property to hang out, read, drink wine and chat with other travelers.
It was a little tough to find walking from the train station, but Alessandra came looking for us and picked us up by car (we weren't far from the entrance). Going to Rufina without a car was a little hair-raising as the road is quite narrow and heavily trafficked. We walked along train tracks but trains run quite frequently and there are several blind corners. You have to be on your toes and know what you are doing.

Lugar muy agradable
Muy bien comunicado con Florencia si se dispone de coche, se puede estar en el campo y hacer turismo de ciudad. Muy Tranquilo y relajado, el dpto dispone de todo lo necesario para poder cocinar y/o desayunar. La propietaria muy amable y simpática. Nuestros niños disfrutaron de la piscina.

Amazing stay in Tuscany!
I came to this location to propose to my girlfriend and surprise her with all my friends. I had arranged with the owner to get a bouquet of flowers and a nice supper for all of us. The weekend was absolutely memorable (she indeed say yes!). The location is very quiet and relaxing. The pool is fantastic and all my friends were comfortable and had a blast. The owner is friendly, accommodating, and fun. Make sure to try her Chianti wine, delicious! Overall, great place and I would like to go there again next year for a longer stay. I support Rufina without any reservation whatsoever!
Absolutely none.

Koselig og herlig avslappende
Flott uteområde med fint basseng og gode anledninger for vin på terassen. Kort avstand til den hyggelige byen Rufina. Fint rom. Vertinnen er fantastisk! Anbefales å ha bil.
Litt kjedelig frokost, men gjestfriheten oppveier den.

Rufina- A rustic* retreat in Tuscany! *spiders
A beautiful country side, picturesque, beautiful. A gorgeous setting, The Jasmine was fragrant and in bloom, and it was a perfect stting for relaxing with a picnic at one of the tables. The pool was beautiful and refreshing.
We did not get the rooms we reserved (we reserved Fiore), and would not have chosen to come to Rufina for the zeffate suite, It was open air, no screens with live and dead spiders everywhere. There was bird poop in the window wells, and dried up dead spiders in all of the upholstery and drapery. My daughter and I left with DOZENS of spider bites. They are still healing 2 weeks later- big nasty red things. We were not given a tour, instructed on wifi, or offered the olive oil tasting and cooking classes that were promised during Email correspondence and on the website. The hostess tried to charge us 10 euros each for a towel rental for the pool until I refused. I believe Alessandra is nice, but we did not get the warm welcome and she seem exhausted, overwhelmed with the situation. She has no help and manages all of the units herself. We were VERY DISSAPPOINTED to not get the unit we reserved through the website, which was immensely nicer than the one we received. Felt like a "bait and switch"
Dear Anne, thank you for being with us with your beautiful daughter…… This is true , I made a mistake with the apartment and for this I asked sorry to you, but at the meantime the day after you arrive you could change for Fiore Apartment, it was free.......just the time to clean and the apartment was ready for you, but you told me that you were very well in Apartment Zefffera and you didn't want to change. About towels for the pool, all the clients are free to bring their own, otherwise they can rent them, there is a notice in the apartment . I gave them for free because I made a mistake! We offer, on payment, olive and wine tasting of our production, cooking class and dinner and I wrote to you I offered these services, but you didn't ask me about this. Perhaps you were not interested….. we spoke and gave you other information. WI-FI is free and without password. In the apartment you found bottles of wines on payment and you drunk them…………..I offered them to you! About spiders you are right, but we are in the country and it is normal, we aren’t in the center of the city. I am very sorry, because I like very much to offer the best of my clients , but if there is a little problem and if we speak immediately is the best, and if I can try to help or explain …..I try to do Alessandra

La proximité avec la route (nationale) provoque du bruit mais pas de bruit dans les chambres et peu de bruit de la piscine. Peu de choix de restaurants dans les environs.

A wonderful place to stay!
Our cooking lessons with Allessandra were informal and informative and she was a pleasure to spend time with.She is a most gracious host and our stay was delightful and relaxing.

Très belle maison
Beau jardin et belle piscine en plus de la belle maison
10 € pour la location de la serviette de bain obligatoire pour la piscine, c'est un peu cher! Petit déjeuner plus que moyen, pas de pain frais et lenteur du service, air surpris et grognon si on demande une deuxième tasse de café Route un peu bruyante
vi ringraziamo per la vs. recensione tengo a precisare che non e' obbligatorio noleggiare il telo per la piscina, gli ospiti possono avere il loro personale, l'importante e' non usare gli asciugamani dei bagni degli appartamenti o camere, questo esclusivamente per motivi igenici. Inoltre in ogni stanza tutti i clienti trovano un informativa in merito al costo del servizio. Non abbiamo nessun problema a servire una tazza di caffe' in piu', basta avere la cortesia di aspettare

Great host, beautiful place
Our host Alessandra took care of us wonderfully well, the house and garden was beatiful and clean.
A bit too close to a road, and not really any possibilities to walk anywhere.

Outstanding comfort and privacy
Hosts were gracious, room accommodations were classic Tuscan and very comfortable. Short drive to the village and train station. Wine was spectacular!
Breakfast was on the light side so plan your day around this fact.

Such a beautiful spot of Italy!
The surrroundings, the tasteful decor, the kind and very helpful owners.

Lovely Experience at Rufina
We arrived during a heat wave in August so the serene pool setting was fantastic and we skipped a day going into Florence to stay there. Our hostess was a lovely person who laughed with us easily and helped us immensely in so many ways. We really liked her and her gentle dog Pepe.
The stove burners could be hotter. There was no oven, but we would not have turned it on then anyway.
 July 2011  Reynaert from Menen (Belgium)
Very helpful owner, and discrete at the same time. Very nice accomodation with several terrasses outside.
Our appartement (Rubino) was big enough for the four of us. Small but handy bathroom. Same thing for kitchenette. Wine tasting is superb. Great swimming pool. Free internet. Etc. etc.
Internet not very 'strong' in our room (we needed go downside to have good reception).

Muy agradable. Estupenda acogida.
Muy amables. La habitación confortable, muy buena situación.
No los hay. Quizá el desayuno podría haber sido un poco mejor y el cuarto de baño un poco más grande, pero en conjunto todo estuvo bien.
