What drew our attention and quick decision to rent this farmhouse while surfing the webs, were the photos of the bedrooms with some charming livestocks prints on the headboard of the beds, the instant relaxing effect from the hammock at the patio, and the swimming pool. In reality every tone and objects were present and sound, and just with much more. The panorama overlook at this agriturismo is a pleasure. It is a charming and warm holiday house.
We drove from the Marammena coast. We never knew that mountain and winding roads added the length to a trip. We arrived the farmhouse pretty late with no food or groceries, worrying that we had to go to sleep with an empty stomach. When Rita, the host greeted us at the door, we were so happy to see she had prepared a big plate of mixed fruits, watermelon, biscuits, some bottled water. She even gave us a loaf of bread from her own house. Such hospitality already made a good start of our holiday. Through Rita who is an enthusiast in this working farm, we had a wonderful harvest lunch with the farmers.
We love Tuscany.
We love this place.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Treat yourself a vacation in our small agriturismo, dating back to the early 1900s, newly refurbished and fitted with antique, comfortable country style furniture. It is located on a hill with scenic views in theTuscan Maremma countryside; an area sparsely populated, where farming traditions have been maintained. We are 12 km from Saturnia thermal waters; one hour away from the Argentario coast , Mount Amiata. Six villages listed within the "I Borghi Più Belli d'Italia" (Montemerano, Pitigliano, Sovana, Santa Fiora, Porto Ercole e Giglio Castello) are not far. The region was inhabited by Etruscans and Romans, whose fascinating remains can be visited. We reproduce old varieties of grains, the gluten which has the particularity to be much more digestible than that of the "modern" grains. The milling is done in stone and the leavening of bread using sourdough: We produce an excellent extra virgin olive oil. We have a vegetable garden and a orchard with ancient varieties of fruits, to rediscover forgotten tastes and fraqrances. Come and taste our breakfast with home made bread, prepared with ancient varieties of wheat, which gluten is more digestible! ... more less
