The bedrooms are located in an ancient fortress and in the typical farmhouse near it. The fortress dating back to the 13th Century became a luxurious Villa in the 18th Century and, together with the farmhouses it overlooks the green beautiful valley of our Farm.
This part of Sienaï¿½s province is one of the most gorgeous area in Tuscany!
We are between town (at 50mt, shop and restaurant walking distance) and the countryside (you can hike or bike in our Farm), so you can really enjoy both situations!
We are on bikerï¿½s guide as a good starting point to visit the Montagnola senese and Val di Merse areas by bike.
Since 18th century Cavaglioni has been owned by our family and the Villa still preserves intact the original furniture and paintings.
You can easily visit Siena and we organize your wine or sight-seeing tours to Montalcino, San Gimignano, San Galgano, Volterra, Pienza, Montepulciano, Chianti
We rent bikes; we can organize your activities like cooking class, italian language class, horseback-riding and more.
There are huge green areas that our guests can use for walks, barbecue, relax, get cool at the little pool.
In our Farms we produce a great Chianti red wine and extra-virgin olive oil that you can taste and purchase.
Berenice and Anna Maria, daughter and mother, speak perfect English and French and are happy to welcome and help all travellers.
Great breakfast is served in the morning!
We also rent self-catering apartments for 2, 4, 6 or 8 people for short or long term, located near the Villa, all of them with fireplace. Weekly rentals are very convenient.
At the Farm we organize unique music events and other art performances.

Check-in 12pm to 7pm.
NOTE: we are the same owners of Fattoria Palazzo di Piero at Montepulciano, check it out!
If by car, please don't use the gps with the name of our street or you'll be lost!!
If you really really want to use it, put instead:
Via grossetana ï¿½ costalpino (siena) and only then change to
Via grossetana ï¿½ san rocco a pilli (sovicille)
Otherwise follow my human suggestion :) :
If you drive from florence/pisa/arezzo/prugia/A1: once near Siena continue direction Grosseto on the fast road SS223; after about 10 km exit at 'San Rocco a Pilli'; after 1 km and a half turn left in Via del Poggetto; enter the first gate on the left.
If you drive from Grosseto about 10 km before Siena exit at 'San Rocco a Pilli'; after 1 km and a half turn left in Via del Poggetto; enter the first gate on the left.
Call us if you have problems!
Remember! You need tickets before you get on the bus, and you have to ring the bell to make the bus stop. Tickets are sold in many bars and tabacchi shops.
If you arrive in Siena by train, take a bus to Piazza Gramsci...
If you arrive in Siena by bus, get off at Piazza Gramsci...
From Piazza Gramsci in siena take the bus nï¿½ 30 to' San Rocco'.
Following your bus ride:
-the bus will leave siena; will cross three small towns: Costafabbri, Costalpino and Sant'andrea; will enter 'San Rocco a Pilli';
- the bus will turn left toward a residential area of the town, will do a round about and then come back to the main road (via Grossetana);
- the bus will cross the town: along this main road there are just three bus stops. Fattoria di Cavaglioni bus stop is the third one, you'll recognize it because is next to the huge gate of the villa with eagles' statues on top.
To be more sure you don't miss the stop tell the driver you want to stop 'a San Rocco, alla fermata dopo la piazza (the bus stop after the main square) alla Villa Cavaglioni' ,
When you have the huge gate of the villa with statues of eagles in front of you, take the road on the right (via del poggetto) and enter the first gate on the left.
From train station or siena center the cost is about 18-20 euro.
Call us if you have problems!
