In the Tuscan countryside, not far from Arezzo, this Agriturismo is made up of several restored buildings for a total of 16 bedrooms, 16 bathrooms, a restaurant and a wellness center. The surrounding 23 ha of land houses 300 olive trees (producing up to 150 liters of oil per year), a chestnut grove, ample open surfaces to relax and an Infinity pool. The estate is energetically independent (95%) thanks to solar panels and firewood boiler.
The nearby village (3km; 5’) offers a few services (pharmacy, restaurants) but to have a full selection one must move to Arezzo (15km; 20’) where there are supermarkets, banks and post offices if needed. The other art cities of Tuscany (Florence, Siena, Montepulciano, San Gimignano) can all be reached in less than two hours.
The closest airport is Perugia (81km; 1h 5’) but the terminals in Florence, Pisa, Bologna and Rome are equally easy to reach.
DESCRIPTION OF THE BUILDINGS
The main farmhouse houses on the ground florr a reception, a bar, two restaurant halls (50 seats), an ample sitting room with fireplace, bathroom and a few storage rooms and cellars.

Not far from the farmhouse is located a restored rustic annex (40 sqm – 430 sqft) currently used as a reading room and relax area for the guests.
The last building is an old agricultural warehouse, recently restored and converted into a cozy wellness center for the guests: here we can find a Finnish sauna, whirlwind tub, Turkish bath, emotional shower with aroma- and chromotherapy, relax area with tea corner and a massage room.
The property is energetically independent (95%) thanks to the installation of a photovoltaic system for electricity (26 kW both supplying the building and sending energy directly back to the network for a yearly income of roughly € 13,000), a firewood ETA boiler (60 kcal ≈ 250,000 Joules) a solar thermal system (50 sqm, installed in 2018). The boiler is located in an independent technical room with a shed offering shelter for firewood.
Two parking lots covered with canopied allow sheltering cars and other vehicles if needed.

A 3.0-ha olive grove (approximately 300 trees) allows producing up to 900 kg of olives per year (processed into 150 liters of EVO). Following up we find a chestnut grove (3.0 ha) and over 5,000 sqm of vegetable and fruit gardens. The farm has already been awarded organic certification.
The pinewood surrounding the property is dotted with tables, benches and wooden gazebos, also offering a cute playground for the younglings. Gardens are all equipped with an irrigation system.
