  • We are a soccer team with the trainer, the   technical coach and all our wives. Can you accomodate all of us? Read
    Yes we can, provided that you do not expect to sleep all in the same apartment.


  • I made a reservation, yet: I have broken it off with my girlfriend/boyfriend / I have an unexpected examination at the college just in that period /our sons are going to spend their holidays in Paris (Texas) and we have just realized that it is not in Europe! / my husband has unexpectedly decided to leave to Cuba with his secretary...
    How can we solve the problem?
    Come on, it's not a real problem. Please check our policies


  • I have broken it off with my girlfriend/boyfriend. Can I find a substitute there? Read
    I am writing  a FAQ about a farm house in Tuscany, not the section "I do see and I preview "  of a fortune teller's web site... Anyway, I guess you could try.



  • What is the distance to the beach? Is there a swimming pool around? Can I play tennis or join riding fields? Are there stores and shops and restaurants? Where can I find a family doctor? Read
    You can reach a lot of beautiful beaches in about 20-25 minutes by car. Here in the farm we have a nice private swimming pool in which adults and children can swim safely. Free of charge for you.

    I don't  know if you can play tennis :-) Anyway, if you can you'll be able to get a tennis court in Ponteginori, only 5 minutes by car  from the farmhouse. Yet you must know that the tennis court is very close to the public swimming-pool and the bathing attendant can't help looking at you and giving unrequested suggestions. You can reach a lot of riding fields in about 7-8 minutes by car.
    In only 5 minutes you can reach a chemist's (and a doctor too) a baker's, a butcher's, pubs, a newspaper kiosk, and so on.

    Many of the surrounding  villages have excellent restaurants, some of them award-winning. Booking in season is advisable, and ordering after 9 p.m. can be difficult. We will be happy to make suggestions and reservations for you. Recommendations are based on our own experience and feed-back from our guests. Inevitably not everyone agrees!   If you have opinions or suggestions to share, we would love you to email us.


  • Is there a garden in the farmhouse and is possible to make walks and excursions? Read
    All around the  farm you can find approximately 250.000 square meters of green fields, woods and country lanes in which you can freely walk. For your comfort and in order to avoid that you get lost in the forests we have also put deckchairs, chairs, tables and sun umbrellas in the area next to the cottages.



  • From which countries do your guests usually come? What do your previous guests say about your hospitality?guests  Read
    From Italy, Germany, Switzerland, Austria, Belgium, England, Holland, France, the United States, Israel, South Africa.
    We have recently created a "Guest Book" with the secret aim to burn during the night any page containing blames and censures. We are proud to announce that we have had  no opportunities  to play with candles and matches


  • Are there fireflies? Are there wolves? Read
    Yes, thousands of fireflies! Its' a sort of midsummer night dream.
    Unfortunately there are no wolves around
