In twenty minutes by car you can easily reach Florence south area and in less than half an hour you will be in the heart of the famous city of art.

You can spend your time in the common rooms planning your visits and tours or just relax in the sun by the large swimming pool surrounded by the greenery of our olive groves, admiring the view of the wonderful mountains of Vallombrosa and Secchieta (1500 m asl).

A few hundred meters from the farmhouse there is a natural pool of rare beauty, in the river Vicano of S. Ellero, where you can bath and even swim: there the salmonids reproduce and you may see fresh water crabs and shrimps, or be flown over by the beautiful blue dragonflies.

The main activity is the cultivation of olive trees that give an excellent extra virgin olive oil also used to dress dishes according to the tradition of the region.

Our dishes are accompanied by excellent house wine but we can guide you to the finest Chianti wine.
