Franco and Umberta welcome us in their ancient farm in the middle of the beautiful Tuscany countryside between Siena, Volterra and San Gimignano. We will certainly be regenerated after our daily explorations by their warm hospitality, authentic cuisine and Chianti wine. Friendship, good laughter and a great company will help us get away from the stress of it all – all in a magical atmosphere.
They will host us in their elegant recently restored double rooms. You will be mesmerized by the traditionally looking rooms while at the same time everything is eco-friendly (the hot water comes from solar thermal plants).Stone, terracotta, handcrafts shops, antique furniture and wrought iron create a romantic and welcoming atmosphere. Each room is furnished with an in-suite bathroom with shower, hair-dryer, mini-fridge and heating.
You will be amazed by the beautiful views of the surrounding countryside.
Franco will introduce us to the ritual of dinner. The dinner will bring us closer to the Tuscany and Italian culture because you will experience what a family dinner means to an Italian. It is not just eating, it is sharing, friendship and a welcoming ritual. Franco will serve us organic products from the Orgiaglia factory and from other local companies.
He will offer us a complete menu based on Tuscany’s typical dishes – from appetizers to deserts including unlimited wine, spring and sparkling water, coffee and the Grappa liquor.
We will eat home cooked dishes, natural and tasty, exploring the old family traditions and eating near the fireplace, in the pergola or under the starry sky.
