The main income at the charming Tenuta Cantagallo still comes from agriculture as it has done since the 1800's, but now there are also apartments which you can rent and enjoy as slice of life on a real farm. The farm is picturesque in the midst of a landscape most will perceive as typical Tuscan, characterized by rolling hills, vineyards, olive groves and cypress trees.
A stay at the farm means you can enjoy a most picturesque setting in the middle of a landscape that most people would describe as typically Tuscan, featuring soft hills, vineyards, olive groves and cypresses. The hills surrounding the farm are criss crossed by paths, so there are plenty of opportunities for walking or biking. It is also possible to get around on horseback as there are a number of stables in the area. The farm has more than 230 hectares of land and the facilities include a tennis court, a small football pitch, table tennis tables, and playground for children, not forgetting the swimming pool 7 x 15 m which is surrounded by sun beds and covered terraces with tables and chairs.
The owners also arrange wine tasting in their home from time to time and there is a restaurant on the farm which is usually open on the weekend. If you like to explore a bit, the staff here are very friendly and will happily advise you of where to go for the best day trips and direct you to other local restaurants.
There are eight apartments nest to the old main building, all with a typical rural Tuscan interior design. The furniture is simple and rustic, but solid. All the apartments have kitchen facilities, a bathroom and TV and they all benefit from a central heating system so they are an all year round holiday option. The kitchen facilities include a stove with gas hobs and an electric oven, and they all have a private terrace. In addition, there is a rather delightful communal terrace and viewpoint on the farm overlooking Capraia and Montelupo.
