The informal atmosphere guarantees our guests a holiday filled with the magic of nature in art and history, all in a climate which is always pleasant.

The farm is located near Chianni, in the province of Pisa, near Volterra and five minutes away from the hot springs of Casciana Terme, situated in the famous scenery of the Tuscan hills, nestled among Mediterranean plant life and gentle slopes. It is an excellent point of departure to reach the most interesting places in Tuscany.


The farmhouse is divided into two floors, the upper one dedicated to our guests.
The structure can host up to eight guests, with an option to add spare beds if necessary. We offer autonomous use of the apartment with kitchen.
All the rooms and washrooms are complete with heating, and wood for the cozy fireplace is provided. Also available are baby beds and high chairs for our infant guests. Pets are allowed, keeping in mind the animals already living with us on the farm.
THE ROOMS
Ascending a beautiful stone staircase, you come to the rooms furnished with vintage furniture. Available are: a double-room connected to an adjacent room with single beds, sharing one bathroom; a double-room separated from an adjacent room with single beds, sharing one bathroom; and a large double-room having its own bathroom.
There is also a large living space with kitchen facilities and a beautiful stone fireplace designed for relaxation and meals.
All linens are furnished and have been purchased with special attention given to the quality of their materials (goose-down comforters and quilts, anti-allergy and/or orthopaedic feather pillows, made of cotton of highest Italian quality).

IN THE PROPERTY
Around the house you will find terraces and verandas complete with tables and lounge chairs for basking in the sun, as well as a patio with a large wooden table, ideal for barbeques. There is also a shaded area where you can simply take a nap or enjoy your favourite book under the gentle branches of a majestic oak tree.

Location description from owner

The Tuscany region

The region is located in the central, western part of the country, north of Rome and south of Genoa. It is bounded by the Apennine Mountains to the North and East.

Pisa, located in western Tuscany, is known throughout the world for its famous Leaning Tower, but there is so much more to Pisa than just this striking landmar

Chianni

THE COUNTRYSIDE
Near the village of Chianni, you can explore on foot, by bicycle, or on horseback a labyrinth of footpaths and trails rich in natural and historic treasures. We can supply you with maps to plan your itinerary. You can also rent mountain bikes in the nearby town of Casciana Terme, where it is also possible to rent a Quad (a small, 4-wheel motorscooter) and go on a guided excursion.

In the woods surrounding the Farm there is a lovely little brook and, from the beginning of June as the summer sun warms the earth, you can go there to refresh mind and body, taking your place in the environment of wildlife including squirrels, tiny tree frogs, and, towards dusk, porcupines and wild boar.

In the valley of the farm runs the Sterza river where you can go swimming at Garetto place.

The village of Chianni (also accessible on foot) there is a swimming pool facility and a children's pool.
You can also find swimming pools in the towns of Casciana Terme and Peccioli; the latter is particularly interesting and also has a prehistoric park for children.

In the valley of Chianni lies the community of Terricciola and the famous Wine Path (la Strada del Vino), where local producers of fine Chianti delle Colline Pisane wine open their vineyards for wine tasting.

Following the itinerary you can reach in 40 minutes.
