Fattoria di Castiglionchio will provide a beautiful setting for your holiday, set in the countryside with vineyards, woods all around and great views. Here you will stay around three kilometres from the town of Rosano Valdarno.
The farm was once a fortified village, but today it has rustic apartments and offers an eventful holiday in the hills just a short distance from Florence (15 km). The farm produces large amounts of olive oil and wine, which is available to buy from reception or in the restaurant, which is open two to three evenings a week.
The apartments are either in the main building, the newer building Girasoli or in the nearby farmhouse Rustico. Rustico is location 500 metres from the main building and the swimming pool, and 100 metres from the apartments, and parking is available by the house. You can request accommodation either in the main building or the more rurally located farmhouse, but unfortunately we cannot guarantee the location.
The farm has a spacious garden, a swimming pool (17 x 7 m with a depth of 75 - 135 cm. Other amenities include tennis court, bike hire, horse riding and laundry room. In addition to home made olive oil, wine and honey, other delicacies and specialities are also for sale. Once a week there is a conducted tour around the farm.
The place is particularly recommended to families who will find plenty of entertainment and activities for children and teenagers, a pleasant environment full of Tuscan atmosphere and spectacular views over the vineyards. There are good opportunities for excursions to well known towns including Florence, Siena, Vallombrosa, Reggello, San Gimignano and Greve in Chianti, which are all under an hour's drive.
