We spent 5 days relaxing at the Santa Rita farm. The apartment the tower is very comfortable, spacious and clean. We have chosen to dine in the farmhouse and we did well: the cuisine is very good with fresh and tasty vegetables. Marcello is a friendly person, friendly and helpful. Do not forget the sweet and cuddly moon dog :) The farm is located a few kilometers from the sea right on the path of the Wine Route. The location to visit Volterra and San Gimignano is excellent.
