About This Listing
The farm, whose oldest part dates back to 1600, lies in the green and quiet valley of the Bugnano brook which is a few tens of meters. All rooms have been renovated according to the criteria of green building.
We are located on the slopes of Monte Amiata, an extinct Tuscan volcano, near the ancient village of Seggiano and hot springs that were highly valued by the Etruscans.
The landscape is divided between the austere, imposing presence of the volcano with its chestnut trees and larch woods, on one side and lush, green hills planted with olive trees and vineyards on the other.
Holiday Farm, whose oldest part dates back to 1600, is surrounded by the greenery of the quiet Bugnano River valley, which lies about 20 yards away.
Particular care has been taken in the renovation of the buildings in accordance with green building principles.
The Farm is being organized by the principles of permaculture and natural agriculture and is energy self-sufficient.
You can choose between a small apartment, a large comfortable room with private bathroom or a caravan in the nature.

Il soggiorno presso Le Case Della Buca e' stato davvero piacevole. La casa è immersa nel verde alle pendici del monte Amiata, di fianco un suggestivo corso d'acqua, la casa e' molto bella, tutta in pietra, un ex rudere perfettamente ristrutturato, e' il luogo ideale per una vacanza all'insegna del relax e del contatto con la natura. Massimo e' una persona davvero molto gentile e disponibile, e' stato un piacere esser stato suo ospite. Consigliatissimo.
Massimo è un ospite favoloso, accogliente, gentile e molto interessante. Il posto è magnifico, immerso nel bosco con una vista splendida e il rumore del ruscello che accompagna le giornate. La camera è calda, elegante e perfettamente confortevole. Abbiamo preso una tisana insieme e chiacchierato con Massimo delle nostre passioni ed interessi,curiosità e domande ed abbiamo trovato una persona interessantissima e felice di scambiare, dialogare e confrontarsi e scoprire sempre nuove cose. Ha molto da insegnare!CONSIGLIATISSIMO!!
Very nice place to stay. Newly remodeled and very clean. The house is off the beaten path and gives you a true experience of Tuscany countryside. The drive to and from freeway takes longer than expected although it was very beautiful.
The host was more than nice. We got lost finding the place and he drove into town and had us follow him back to the house. He also took us to the hot springs which were about hour away. He was very gracious and helpful.
