Scopeto is a rustic farmhouse in the Tuscan hills designed for socialising and relaxing. There are two buildings - a traditional farmhouse with vaulted ceilings, fireplace and large pizza oven, and a modernised barn with two self-contained bedrooms (en suite). The property is rented as a single space - you will have complete privacy. You will have exclusive use of our new 12 x 5 metre swimming pool. All bedrooms have air-conditioning.

Le logement
Scopeto is at the very end of a small road and, with 270 degree views, it is completely private, but it’s also in walking distance – 500 metres – of a small Covid-free village. Legoli is a classic one-horse town - a single main road, off which terraces and roads climb and lead to churches or chapels (there were six at the last count but you may well stumble across another). It owes its limited fame to Benozzo Gozzoli, a renowned 15th Century painter who created the tabernacle at the entrance to the village. The locals are proud of its frescoes, and Legoli's general vita lenta, and are often to be found discussing… well, who knows what … outside the village bar. Next to it, Michela’s Alimentari sells essential foods as well as locally produced, organic fruit and veg. Opposite is a really good restaurant, Legoli 1480 (named after the plague that brought Benozzo to the town) that serves traditional as well as more artisan Italian fare.

Food is hugely important here, and locals forage for truffles, fungi and wild asparagus – abundant on our land when in season. Wild boar is always on the menu, as well as in the woods - don’t worry, they are wary! We have deer on our land, that feed in the fields below the house in the early morning and at dusk. If you are quiet you can watch them from the terraces.

The main house is traditional, although we have opened up the cantina to create a large, contemporary kitchen for cooking and dining. There is a range, oven, dishwasher etc. Also, a sound system and CDs you are welcome to use. We will also leave basic food items in the cupboard for guests to share (and replace if needed).

There are two terraces outside the kitchen - to take the morning or afternoon/evening sun and to dine al fresco.

We have 70 olive trees on our land as well as various areas to read, swing from the tress or soak up the sun. It is Scopeto’s terracing and nooks and crannies that we fell so in love with. Artists and musicians have lived here before us - apparently David Bowie once stayed! There are books at the house if you forget yours, and some games. There’s Wi-Fi across the property and good telephone reception.

This year we have added an outdoor HD Optoma projector that can be pointed directly at the back wall for a pool screening, or at our new 200" screen that is easily hung on the side of the barn, for the full 'Cinema Paradiso' effect. We have a Blu Ray DVD player, but it is also possible to stream Netflix or Amazon from a laptop via HDMI (we have a long HDMI cable but check your laptop connectors, you may need an adaptor).

If you want time off from cooking we can arrange for Enzo, a professional chef, to shop, prepare and cook for you at very reasonable rates. The guests who have taken this option have really enjoyed the experience - see reviews. Enzo also offers on-site coking classes - pasta, pizza, prep of a three course Italian meal etc. Let me know if you want to know more.

We can also help you with horse riding, air balloons, cooking (at Scopeto or elsewhere) and all other Tuscan activities.

Où se situe le logement

Legoli, Toscana, Italie

9km away from Legoli is Peccioli, a larger town with shops, supermarkets, summer street markets, festivals (opera and live music) and a wider selection of bars and restaurants. English is spoken here but not routinely. This is Tuscany off the beaten track – and it’s why we love it.

If you need more noise and culture, there are day trips to San Gimignano (28km/35 min), Florence (70km/1hr 20mins), Volterra (35km/40 min), Pisa (40km/40 min) and Lucca (50km/1hr). Castelfalfi golf course is 12km from the house, and the Tuscan Riviera, with its blue waters and dolce vita dining is just an hour away. Nearby, Libbiano (5 mins away) has a planetarium that you can book to visit. There are lots of excursions available - horse riding, balloons, wine tasting etc. We are happy to help set up anything you fancy.

We are offering our Tuscan home for families or groups who want to experience real Tuscan 'slow' and charm. I fell in love with Italy as a child in San Francisco, when my Aunt taught me how to make fresh gnocchi. My love affair continued after I moved to the UK and had opportunities to first holiday, then, as an adult, spend longer chunks of time there. For a while I wrote about its food and culture I love travel and new experiences, the best of them being an encounter of connection with somebody new. Bringing people together - my family as well as friends, old and new - was the main motivation for Scopeto. I'm delighted that my husband, a TV executive, and 20 year old daughters love it too, and I envisage many happy holidays to come.

If you require more frequent cleaning it can be arranged (as can babysitting), with additional charges.

Check in... 2pm. (You are welcome to drop off bags if you arrive earlier.)
Check out...10am. (When there is turnover on the same day we ask that you vacate the kitchen by 9am so deep cleaning can begin. We are being particularly careful in line with Covid safety). You are welcome to use the pool and grounds if you want a more leisurely exit. Please check with Letizia.
