Farmhouse | 3 bedrooms | sleeps 8
The main house 'Il Ciliegio' is a very old farm, dated around 1200, on the road which goes from Belforte to the sea. The house is exposed to the south, between the forest and the valley of the cultivated fields surrounded by tranquility and nature. We are not far from Belforte, only 300 meters on foot, along the panoramic and characteristic old footpath. The other way to reach the village is the dirt road (800 meters) by car. The farm is located along the route of migratory birds; wild animals, common to the area, can frequently be seen. Our family lives in this agricultural farm and practices traditional agriculture according to biological criteria. We produce cereals, corn, sunflowers and olive oil.La Ripa is a farm in the peaceful and relaxing country of Tuscany, near a typical village called Belforte (300 mt), originated around the year 1000 as a fortified castle. It is a ideal place for a relaxing holiday in the heart of Tuscany, nearby the main towns of art.
