The agriturismo

The holiday farm "Il Calesse" takes its origin from the farm "F.lli Giuntini", existing from 1860, and it is located on the green hills of Montalbano region, in Tuscany.
The estate and the farmhouse have been totally restructured to be able to accomodate guests and to offer them genuine and relaxing holidays. The farm is composed of vast woods, olive-groves, vineyards, tree nurseries, and it produces olive oil, wine, vinsanto, lumber and ornamental plants.

The accommodation

Guests are lodged in bedrooms with private bathroom, provided with all comforts and furnished an a rustic style with completely restored ancient furniture. The name shown on the door to the rooms corresponds to the view that you have from the window.

The guests comfort is assured by natural elements and by the environment, using alternative energy: the heating and hot water are maintained by solar heating panels; sewage and dark waters are purified in pools of 'fitodepurazione'; for the water irrigation of the garden it is used rain water; second hand and restored elements and materials; PV panels on the roof, using solar light to produce electricity.

At the ground floor there is the dining room (the old wine store), where guests can have breakfast and dinner. Breakfast is typically Tuscan, made up of jam and cakes completely home made served with cappuccino, coffee or tea. The evening dinner menu is also typically Tuscan. You can choose from the farm's selection of starters, first course of pasta and second main meat course, and end up with one of our home made desserts or cakes The ingredients used are from own land, and if not they are produced in the same area following local traditions, certified and suitable for retail sale.

Activities and surrounding

In their spare time the guests can run across the ecologic path in the chestnut wood and reach the medicean wall of Barco, the ancient building stone quarry and the glade where hunting formerly took place.
For its guests the farm house organizes: guide tours to Florence, Pisa, Lucca, turistic outgoings to Versilia, to Tyrrhenian coast, and to Pistoia Mountain.

On the ground floor of the ancient farmhouse there is a didactic classroom provided with projectors and equipment for courses, seminars and exhibitions. In the room it is possible to admire the ancient work tools and the equipments used for the production of oil, wine and the various agricultural products.

    "Very familiar and nice agriturismo"

    05/09/2018

    The agriturismo is high up, idyllically surrounded by olive trees. The rooms are typical Tuscan with attention to detail and very clean. The homemade breakfast was always a good start to the day. A special highlight was the dinner, which we were allowed to enjoy every evening in the agriturismo. Fresh, regional and typical Tuscan cuisine. It was really delicious every night. The atmosphere is very familiar. We felt very comfortable right from the start and would come back anytime. For city trips to Lucca, Pistoia and Florence, the agriturismo is also perfectly located. Thank you for the great stay.

    We were there yesterday, the typical Tuscan food, but not the usual things. Even the children have eaten! The guy who was in the room was very kind and helpful. The rustic place (as I like it), but very clean. I will definitely be back soon! Too bad they already had the date of the communion of the child already booked!

    Dear Ilaria, thank you very much for your words, we are pleased that you enjoyed the kitchen and our style ... traditional Tuscan, but clean and welcoming. Even if we no longer have room to celebrate First Communion, we hope to have you again with us on other occasions! See you soon
