The reception here is heart warming and the location most scenic. You can't find many modern conveniences but if you are seeing authenticity then we doubt you will mind. Since the house is located 1800 metres from the main road (the white road) it enjoys absolute tranquillity.
The farm is located along the famous La Via Francigena, also known as the pilgrim's route, and the core of the building is a tower dating from the 11th Century. You can image the historic past that this place must have had, even before you come here and experience the atmosphere. The farm is owned by two cousins and their families who have for generations produced wine and olive oil and the farm is surrounded by those very vineyards and olive groves.

The view of the valley cannot be described, it really must be experienced, let's just say that it is magical! The peace and quiet is something else! You can dine right here at the farm where food will be prepared with fresh ingredients just for you. Otherwise the nearest town is in Certaldo approx. 2.5 km away where you can go for shopping and to find other restaurants, bars and cafes.
The rooms are spacious and sturdy. There is no air conditioning, or TV. there is however an internet connection here, and a wonderful swimming pool which measures 12 x 6 metres and is almost in the vineyard.
