The sheep barn on the ground floor, with its thick, ancient walls, was transformed into an apartment. It has a bright, fully equipped kitchen with a glass door leading into the garden. There is a spacious living room with fireplace and a large bedroom with a double bed.
The working organic farm (about 60 acres) comprises an olive grove, a vineyard, a garden with old roses and woodlands.
The farm centers on the breeding of English thoroughbred race horses. These have competed on national and European tracks, are offered to the visitor's gaze confident of their innate elegance.
Every activity of the company is carried out with the utmost respect for the natural heritage of great beauty and biodiversity.
The farm is located in the Ombrone River valley , immersed in a landscape with unique charm , is situated on the border of two landscapes among the most typical and the Tuscan Chianti and the Crete Senesi. That's why the view that it offers the visitor is characterized by softness and roughness magically fused.

Ideal in spring and autumn to live and enjoy life in the countryside , far away from any city noise . You can enjoy walks along the shore and in the woods to discover an untouched landscape , cultivated fields , abandoned farms , and many species of wild animals and birds. There are many excellent restaurants and taverns serving local cuisine and wonderful wines . A few steps away are the thermal baths of Rapolano ( with whom we have an agreement ) and art cities such as Siena , Arezzo, Florence with their beautiful surroundings.
Francesca and Teo were wonderful hosts. The apartment was perfectly clean and nicely furnished. Milk, juice, cookies, coffee and all kinds of other amenities were very generously supplied.
If you are interested in staying in a rural, rustic environment in a real farmhouse on a working farm at a very reasonable price, this place is perfect.
Ambiente rilassante, accogliente, così come l'ospitalità che mi è stata riservata. Ottimo soggiorno per chi vuole godersi le terme di Rapolano
