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.
Is there a garden in the farmhouse and is possible to

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.

restaurants, some of them award-winning. Booking in

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
