The complex of 17th century is composed by Villa Padronale (the family quarters) and just behind that the old Fattoria (Farmhouse building) used for hospitality, Fattoria has been renovated preserving the original structures and combining them with modern comforts: WiFi, LCD TV, heating, hairdryer , organic olive oil complimentary toiletries, mini bar.

Climbing the sand stone steps you reach the first floor of the farm: where once there were the barns, there are now three apartments and a suite.

 

In the park, under cool of Lebanon cedars and redwoods, is located a half-timbered Cottage built in 1919 and since then called "Casina"; during the work of renovation was replaced the wooden floor  with old oak vats and made it an ideal place to spend a romantic and relaxing holiday

Hi, my name is Caterina and I am 43 years old.

This is me and my parents, Gabriella , Fabio

I have been doing this job for 7 years along with my family.

As well as we cook for the guests, we welcome the guests, we take care of the crops.

It was a desire to to meet new and interesting people all the time which led me to run an agriturismo.

Our guests' favourite thing about Fattoria I Ricci - Agriresort & SPA is the warm family welcome.
