The Farmhouse offers accommodation in three private en-suite rooms (double, twins and triple) and in several private apartments with one or more bedrooms, kitchen and living room. All apartments feature all the facilities, a terrace or balcony or have a private and equipped outside area with table and chairs. For all our guests there is also a private and shady sitting-area at the swimming-pool with table, chairs and sun lounger. The half board service consists in breakfast and lunch/dinner at the farmhouse restaurant. This is managed personally by the farm’s owners with the aim of offering a truly authentic, Tuscan dining experience. Many of the ingredients used in the restaurant will come from the farm itself, including organic, extra virgin olive oil, red wine “Rosso Galeffi”(a blend of 90% Sangiovese and 10% Canaiolo) and meat from Maremmano cattle, which graze on the estate’s 50 hectares of green hills. The use of locally produced “0 Km” ingredients, including “in season” fresh fruit and vegetables is of particular importance and whenever possible the restaurant menu will show the names of the individual suppliers. The restaurant, set amidst the beautiful Tuscan countryside, will offer a calm, relaxed atmosphere because in our opinion eating well means taking time to really savour the food and where the staff will be happy to discuss the menu and its ingredients with guests. The restaurant also offers cookery classes on request.
The Farmhouse owner Ernesto (an Italian Cowboy) and the rest of the staff will welcome you and take care of you during your stay. The Butteri of the Associazione Dimensione Maremma La Forra will involve you in their daily activities with Maremmana Cows, teaching you some basic skills and techniques to handle these majestic animals. You will ride on beautiful Maremmani horses, perfectly trained and docile animals and you will have a chance to try the typical “scafarda” saddle.
Airports: Florence Peretola (FLR), Rome Ciampino (CIA) and Rome Fiumicino (FCO). It’s possible to arrange a transfer on request (cost varies based on number of people/time of the day). From Florence or Rome train stations, you can catch a train to the town of Mentevarchi (AR) and reach your destination by taxi (approx. cost 20 euro).
