There is hardly an Italian region that offers so many opportunities to spend a varied holiday like Tuscany.
This holiday resort, hidden slightly on a hill in the village of the small village of Montaione (the village is part of the Florence county, but very close to the provincial border of Pisa), is the ideal location for a stay for couples and families who, rest and relaxation, but also want to visit many of the famous art-historical cities.
The former homestead, whose origins date back to the 13th century AD, has been transformed into a holiday resort in the 1980s. Farming - which still includes 75 hectares of land - has remained an important branch of business. Among other things, an excellent Chianti DOCG and a first-class olive oil are produced.
The "Padrona di Casa" Gloriana and her sister Gina will take care of your guests, who are accommodated in 8 apartments of different sizes in three buildings. On a large terrace below the beautiful swimming pool (18 x 9 m), the tables in the small common room are covered in the cooler season, and the farm is owned by the lovable mongrel dog Luna and the cats.
For those who want to do sport, Gloriana can reserve the tennis court. The smallest guests will enjoy the children's playground. If you just want to relax, you can go back to the pool with a good book in your hand on one of the panoramic terraces.
Day trips are certainly an integral part of the holiday program. The sea can be reached in about 1½ hours driving time. Florence is about 55 km, Lucca about 62 km, Pisa about 64 km. To reach San Gimignano (about 24 km) and Volterra (about 35 km), you drive through small country roads that lead through the beautiful hilly landscape with its vineyards and olive groves. This is where hobby photographers can get their money's worth every time of the year, as the interplay of colors and light creates new impressions.
In the nearby Montaione (about 4.5 km) there are shops and some small restaurants, where the typical Tuscan farm kitchen is offered.
The apartments are all furnished in simple country style. In high season every morning you can by fresh bread and cakes by a mobil baker service. There will be interesting cooking classes organized by prior registration.
