Activity/In-activity


 

You can devote time to the discovery of a territory rich like few others in beauty, art and culture or just stay and contemplate the passage of time in the magic of nature.
The pool (6x4), obtained from the restoration of an old collection point of rainwater, formerly used to irrigate fields and gardens, has now become a place to cool off and relax in the hot summer days!

 

From our farm there are many paths that lead you to discover the beauty of the surrounding woods and, over the historic route of the Via Francigena, you can reach the Castle of  Monteriggioni and the ancient churches and monasteries in the vicinity (the churche of S. Leonardo a Lago, Hermitage of Lecceto).
