Farmhouse le Crete in Asciano (Siena, Italy),
a dream vacation ...


Silvano Vigni

In the centre of Tuscany, in the Heart of the Crete Senesi, is located the Agriturismo of Silvano Vigni, called Bastiano, one of the most famous racer jockeys, that here are called "fantini", in the history of Senese Palio.

The love for his horses and his homeland has become the reason of his life.
His love for this dry and wavy country brought him to share part of his farmhouse with Italian and foreign guests.

The apartments of the Farm


The apartments of the FarmThe lodges are composed of four Tuscany-style furnished apartments, which are fully equipped with all comforts. They have been obtained from the farmhouse, part of Vescona castle, which, in the 11th century, was property of the Signoria of Guinigi della Scialenga and della Berardenga's earls.

A Unique Landscape "Crete Senesi"


A Unique Landscape "Crete Senesi"

The landscape is moonlike; clayey hills and spectacular calanchi, without any kind of high trunk vegetation.

Bastiano doesn't offer you a holiday in a hotel disguised as a farmhouse but in a real farm where, between riding horses and reading a good book, you will come together whit the rhythms given by nature. This is the right chance for you to spend an holiday without leaving your pet friend at home and for your kids to enjoy meeting and playing with the animals in the farm.
