The agriturismo

The farmhouse, located within a biologically protected and environmentally restricted area, at 800 m above sea level, is in the centre of Tuscany, in an artistically fortunate triangle (Florence 38km, Arezzo 40 km , Siena 50 km) . It is completely immersed in uncontaminated nature, among chestnut woods, meadows and pastures. The secluded swimming pool is ideal for total relaxation.

The last stretch of road (about 800 meters) is deliberately unpaved to guarantee the typology that distinguishes us and is not suitable for sports cars or for people who are driving on dirt.

The accommodation

The structure, mentioned in several specialized guides all over Europe, is divided into 2 old farmhouses typical of the Tuscan region, renovated and divided into 8 apartments (2-3-4-6 beds) furnished with care, in rustic Tuscan style: Metato (small hut with mansard and two bathrooms), Tramontana (large two-room apartment with two bathrooms), Maestrale (three-room apartment with double bedroom, kitchen, small bedroom with bunk beds and bathroom), Montrago, Valle, Primo sole, Colombaia (two-room apartment with double bedroom, kitchen and bathroom), Granaio (large three-room apartment with 2 double bedrooms, large kitchen-living room and 2 bathrooms).

 

In the restaurant it is possible to taste the ancient flavours of the Tuscan tradition, with characteristic specialities taken care of in every detail. The farm produces and sells directly excellent cold cuts from pigs reared in the wild with strictly natural methods.

The large outdoor spaces give you the opportunity to enjoy a gastronomic break in the food area served by the Food Truck of the same structure with the boards of cold cuts produced on site and the characteristic gurmet sandwiches in addition to Chianti Classico and Tuscan craft beers.

Activities and surrounding

In addition to the swimming pool, open from June 1 to September 30, the structure offers the following activities: sport fishing , paragliding , hot air balloon tours , mountain bike rental , trekking also guided and, for nature lovers, the observation of a rich fauna (wild boars, deer, foxes, wolves, buzzards and other birds of prey). In thefood area there is our Food Truck to taste our products in the open air presented with tasty sandwiches filled with unique flavors.

Good
I have to be honest. When I arrived, the facility looked different from the pictures I saw on the website. I did not make a great impression. The last stretch of "road" to access the farm is worthy of the Camel Trophy but as the owner explained to me, unfortunately, doe... Read more

Dearest,
the photos that we have a bit 'everywhere, are made by us and without professional retouching, then, usually, according to many, are also not give merit to reality. Anyway, tastes are subjective and we're sorry you were disappointed.
As for the road, he said well, the last stretch (about 800 meters), in October, when you arrived, frankly needed some work that we do periodically when we can.
Apart from the score a little 'low that penalizes us not a little commercially, however, thank you for your review that helps us to select customers. The dirt road, diversifies us from all the other farms here in the area and preserves a wealth of tranquility and unparalleled nature. Then it is reported on all the portals and on our website and at the time of requests we always send the link of Google Maps / Street where you can see in detail.
We are glad that you enjoyed our cuisine.
A cordial greeting from the Team of Praticino
