From the farm you can enjoy a wonderful sweeping view of the surrounding hills covered by olive groves and vineyards as you relax by the outdoor pool. Alternatively, you can hire one of Campitello's mountain bikes and go and explore this wonderful land.
This is a great spot to stay to have the best of both worlds. You have peace and quiet and unspoilt countryside here at Campitello, yet you are near enough to the medieval towns of Mercatale and Bucine for some adventures, shops and restaurants. If you want to see some bigger attractions, then 30 km away you will find Arezzo, 40 km will take you to Siena and 50 km to Florence.

You can certainly get a healthy dose of outdoor life and fresh air here (weather permitting). The farm has a large garden surrounded by lush olive groves where the children are free to roam and let off some steam. There is a great swimming pool (the pool is open from May to October with reservation for weather conditions) with sun loungers from where you can enjoy endless views of the vineyards. There are also tennis courts and mountain bikes to hire and the owners of Campitello will arrange a hiking or biking guide for you on request. You can take a ride on two wheels and discover the wonderful natural surroundings. You can choose to cater for yourselves in your apartments' kitchens, eat out or stoke up a BBQ in the garden and enjoy dinner with the great views. There is parking and a communal laundry room (for a fee).

It is very quiet and peaceful at the "farm". There were only guests in the weekend in the 12 days we were there. We were comfortable, the apartment were nice and spacious, a nice big porch, with a view over the vineyards.
It was difficult to find, our GPS opted out. There was a local young man who drove in front of us the last kilometers.
The host gave us red wine and olive oil of his own growth. Both were splendid.
Campitello lies out in the middle of tthe hills and there is a beautiful view from the pool. The apartments are big and relatively well equipped. We had expected a better tennis court, but it was too warm to play anyway, so we didn't use it. I don't think that you should advertise that you have a tennis court, since it can't be played on by somewhat good players. Our washing machine leaked water and made our fuses blow up during our whole stay. Despite a repairman and a lot of good will from the sweet hosts, we washed our clothes by hand the whole week. I wonder if the whole place generally is a bit under-maintained, but the pool area and the whole park around the homes were very fine and clean. The nearest town, Bucine, is functional, but not very charming.
Our stay at Campitello, was lovely, the wireless connection was very bad, however. We didn't succeed to connect to it once during our stay. The owners should also consider installing some air conditioning or at least a ceiling fan.
