The agriturismo

The La Cantina Relais agriturismo is classified “4 spighe” (4 ears of corn, an agriturismo classification just like hotel stars). The property is located on the slopes of the Monte Lignano Nature Park, a few kilometres from the Etruscan city of Cortona.

Nestled among olive trees grown on characteristic stone terracing, the agriturismo is part of the Il Cipresso farm, which is around 1 km away from the accommodation.

With its olive groves, vines and woodland, the organic farm produces oil, wine, vinsanto and jams. The farm also has an apiary, from which it gathers honey, propolis, pollen and wax.

The accommodation

The agriturismo is located inside the historic villa which houses the farm’s wine cellar. The guest suites, the smallest 20 m2 and the largest 40 m2, are built among the oak barrels and kegs: sleep amidst the aging wine, among the scent of oak and must. In the attic, you can see the vinsanto production room, where the old barrels are stored, yielding vinsanto each year.

 

Inside the historic villa, which houses the wine cellar, there are 7 guest suites, including lounges with armchairs or sofas and a small writing desk.

 

In the grounds there is a swimming pool where guests can relax in the shade of elm and acacia trees, and a restaurant (La Tabaccaia) built inside a renovated tobacco leaf store, with the original features kept unaltered.

 

The restaurant serves breakfast, and delicious Tuscan dishes prepared using the farm’s own produce (including handmade pasta made from stone ground wheat).

Activities and surrounding

A few metres away you’ll find the Monte Lignano Nature Park, the perfect place for strolling and admiring the views of the Chiana Valley. 15 km takes you to the Etruscan city of Cortona, 8 km to Castiglion Fiorentino with its medieval streets, 12 km to Arezzo with the paintings of Piero della Francesca and the Piazza Grande with the Vasari Loggia. In the Siena region you’ll find Montepulciano (30 km), Pienza (45 km) and Siena (65 km). Florence is an hour away, and Rome is two hours by car.

    "Wonderful time at La Cantina !"

    10/27/2015

    The place is impeccable; the people are super nice (yes! very very nice), the food and wine are fantastic. Alberto is an extremely pleasant guest that truly enjoys what he does. Stayed two nights and really enjoyed. Highly recommended and would come again anytime. Best regards from Canada. Luc and Anne-Marie.
