FAMILY-RUN RESTAURANT, with typical courses from the Tuscan tradition, prepared exclusively with local products and organic vegetables from our farm. Indoor dining room and outdoor panoramic loggia.

Our holiday farm is located right in the center of Tuscany, in a beautiful position on a hill on the left side of the river Arno, in front of the typical medieval town of Laterina.

Set amidst gentle hills, it offers a breathtaking view that goes from the Arno river valley to the Apennines. It is an ideal starting point for trips to the most renowned cities in Tuscany and Umbria. Arezzo is just 15 km away, Siena 45 and Florence 60. San Gimignano, Cortona, Perugia, Assisi and many other art cities are also near just like Chianti, Valdichiana, Casentino and Lake Trasimeno.

The holiday farm has been recently painstakingly restored and now retains all the classic architectural aspects of old Tuscan dwellings (cotto or stone floors, oak beams, bricks arches), but it was also endowed with a touch of modernity that makes the reconstruction even more fascinating. All the apartments have their private entrance, a garden for outdoor dining and a reserved area by the swimming pool. The main farmhouse consists of 5 apartments, while the smaller house, the Cottage, hosts other two. The Cottage is also an ideal dwelling forĀ  groups, because it is completely independent and surrounded by a big private garden.
