We stayed five days here. Needless to say, five days is not enough. It feels like home here and it makes you wanna stay here much longer. Since first second you arrive to Rostolena hills it feels like a fairytale. Looks like you get into some magic country of mountains, valleys, olive groves, never repeating shades of green. And it is all filled with sun.
The little house we stayed in was cozy and romantic. Mornings were filled with bird songs. Breakfast is excellent, homemade cakes and coffee reveal energy to explore surroundings with much more pleasure. Caterina and Riccardo are nicest couple we have ever seen. They provide so much hospitality and this hospitality makes you wanna come back again.
And be prepared to be surrounded by cats, lots of cats :-)
If we could we would never share this place as we’d better keep it as a secret ;)
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Fattoria I Ricci Agriresort, an ancient 17th century estate situated on the lush Tuscan hills set against the backdrop of the spectacular Apennines, is a mere 35 kilometers from Florence and easily reached by way of quaint country roads or the fascinating age old railway line. The Agriresort is surrounded by a luxuriant park of age old trees, which includes rare exemplars, in the middle of which we find a swimming pool with a breath-taking view and furnished with comfortable and elegant sun-beds in wrought iron. An idyllic place surrounded by olive groves and vineyards that yield extra virgin olive oil and wine can be enjoyed at the restaurant. The complex is composed of the Villa Padronale, the family quarters, and just behind that the old Fattoria (Farmhouse building) used for hospitality, Fattoria has been renovated preserving the original structures and combining them with modern comforts: WiFi, LED TV, heating, hairdryer, organic olive oil complimentary toiletries and mini bar and wellness center. The interior has been treated in detail using ancient furniture from the Villa Padronale and other selected furniture in flea markets, great passion of owner Caterina. At Fattoria ground floor are located two huge Halls, le Tinaie (the fermenting room), where breakfast and dinners are served. Climbing the sand stone steps you reach the first floor of the farm: where once there were the barns, there are now three apartments and a suite. In the park, under cool of Lebanon cedars and redwoods, is located a half-timbered Cottage built in 1919 and since then called “Casina”; during the work of renovation was replaced the wooden floor with old oak vats and made it an ideal place to spend a romantic and relaxing holiday. The Agriresort is run in a deliberately family: the attention, the smile and hospitality are the starting point for a memorable vacation. ... more less
