You don't have to compromise here. You stay in an authentic setting with nature on your doorstep and with plenty to do for the children. You can dine onsite twice a week, nearby at restaurants and pizzerias, or cook at home in your apartment which is furnished in the Tuscan "arte povera" style, with traditional terracotta floors and a simple kitchen.
The farm's large swimming pool, 25 x 12.5 m is at your disposal and you can also hire the tennis court if you wish. On payment of a supplement you can also hire bicycles, use the washing machine, arrange gliding trips, go horse riding or go sailing from Marina di Pisa to the island of Capraia. For those interested in golf it should be pointed out that Tenuta Quarrata has arranged a deal with Metropolitan Golf & Country Club in Tirrenia (approx. 35 km away), whereby guests from the farm can play the 18-hole course at a special price. In the same town there are also large sandy beaches, so you don't have to make do with the swimming pool every day of your holiday.
Dinner can be arranged twice a week at the farm for a fee - a simple yet robust Tuscan style of cuisine. On Saturdays when there are more arrivals, you can expect a good buffet. On Thursdays there is a traditional Tuscan dinner with good meat and good local red wine. On Tuesdays often a tasting of Tuscan specialties and wine, olive oil and other local products is arranged. If you want breakfast, this can also be arranged but you can also just order fresh baked bread to be delivered to your door - so you can enjoy your breakfast as you like. NB. All these services are not available during low season:
The apartments are spacious and nicely decorated (and equipped with Wi-FI), but the kitchens are a relatively simple feature; they have a four-burner stove and a refrigerator, but there are not many household items. Most have access to a garden table and chairs near the entrance, otherwise you can use the tables and chairs that are in the common areas.
About three km from the farm you will find a supermarket, butcher, bakery, pharmacy and fruit and vegetable shops. If you don't feel like cooking and you want to try eating somewhere other than farm eating place, no more than a few kilometres away you will find the first of many restaurants and a pizzeria.
