Our Swimming-Pool is of a much larger size than the average of the other Tuscan farmhouses’ swimming-pools: it is 15×7,5 meters large! You’ll enjoy magical hours of relaxation at it … perhaps, after a refreshing bath, reading lying on the sun-beds we littered in the greenery next to the pool, shaded by ancient Chianti olive trees.
Cooking Classes can be organized for whom is wishing to discover in person the Tuscan cuisine. The cooking class is performed by a well-known Tuscan chef, Leonardo Grazzi, and you may take arrangements directly with him. His cooking class will end with a dinner, tasting what you have prepared plus something else offered by Leonardo.
Wine Tours with a personal certified sommelier can be organized: our sommelier will bring you, on his van, to tour the best of Tuscan wineries, including Brunello wineries, to taste some of the most famous wines, but also will suggest you some wineries off the beaten tracks … In brief, we offer you the best wineries and best locations, often undiscovered by the “normal” tourists. Of course you won’t miss the opportunity for private, guided visit of their cellars tasting their great olive-oils and wines!
Sightseeing Tours on a private van/bus with driver (and, if you wish, with a guide/cicerone too) may be organized to discover not only the most famous Tuscan towns and villages, like Firenze, Siena, San Gimignano, Lucca, Volterra, Pisa and so on, but also Assisi or the Cinque Terre.
Horseback walks in the Chianti countryside can be organized: we are in partnership with an horse-riding center that is placed 5 minutes driving far from our Villa. Adults may book an horseback walk in the Chianti countryside, while children can only ride inside the center, on a pony or, according to their age or training level, on a normal horse. Everyone can ride!!!
Hot Air Baloon Flies can be organized, admiring the Chianti hills and the cultivated fields, towns and villages from an unusual perspective…
Trips on a bike to enjoy even more closely the beauty of the Tuscan land. Hybrid bikes, electric, road or trekking bikes are available, for different training or fitness levels. Children bikes are available too, and, for babies or kids 0-6 years old, comfortable “bike trailers” with safety belts may be attached to the parents’ bikes. Each trip can be organized to fit the customers’ needs. We can also organize bike tours at sunset ending with a nice wine-tasting while watching the sun falling between the Chianti hills on the horizon.
One Day In Search Of Truffles may be organized as well: yes, we can also arrange this! You can learn a lot about the ancient art of truffles-research with truffle-dogs.
