The agricultural establishment Sassi Bianchi has 40 hectares of land at its disposal and is situated in the splendid landscape of the Chianti hills.
The property lies in a woody complex, a refuge for numerous wild animals. With some luck, one can encounter hares, pheasants, wild-boars, roe-bucks, badgers, bald-coots, or wild ducks, that go to water in the lake of the establishment. It is in the centre of an ideal triangle, where the vertexes are Volterra, San Gimignano and Colle Val d'Elsa.
Guests are welcomed in 4 farm houses of the 16th century, completely restored and independent, furnished with taste by the owners, with beautiful antique forniture. They provide heating and all other modern conveniences, with equipped kitchens and private bathrooms for all bedrooms.
Besides the garden where it will be pleasant to relax, at the guests' disposal are a swimming pool, a tennis court and a bowling green. The guests may enjoy relaxing walks, through the paths that mark the woods or go jogging in the quiet of the countryside.
The closeness of famous art centres like Florence Siena Pisa offer a valid alternative. The golf centre of Castelfalfi is just 10km away. The owners (two doctors in medicine, a biological science teacher and a veterinary) are able to provide maps and guides but also useful suggestions to discover art and nature treasures.
Restaurant service is not provided but delicious typical trattorias are situated in the vicinity. On request, it is possible to have a language teacher, an embroidery teacher, a cook and a maid.
