Local area

Our farm is located in a small valley at the foot of the mediaeval hilltop village of Pari. We are surrounded by acres of Mediterranean woodland rich in holm oak and arbutus (strawberry) trees.

During the summer months the sound of crickets fills the air like that of the nightingales in the month of May.

We are truly immersed in nature.

From the farm, in only half an hour, you can reach the wonderful city of Siena with its "Piazza del Campo", home of the famous "Palio".

Travelling in the other direction, the coast is only an hour's drive away. You can visit the Maremma Nature Reserve or relax on the beaches at Castiglione della Pescaia. A longer trip could take you to the Mount Argentario peninsula where you can catch a ferry to the beautiful island of Giglio.

Our farm is fairly isolated. However, following the old country road you can reach the village of Pari in less than ten minutes, and fifteen minutes away are the Petriolo thermal baths. This is definitely not to be missed. Hot spring water, rich in sulphur at a temperature of 43°C gushes into the nearby river Farma.

In the village of Pari, only 2 km from the farm, you can find a bar/restaurant in the village square, a small grocery store, a tobacconist, the hotel/restaurant Il Cacciatore where you can sample traditional Tuscan cuisine and in nearby Leccio there is a family-run pizzeria.
