Because we love our accommodation:

1. ... because in 1981 we chose this place to live of agriculture, away from traffic and noise, in the silence and nature.

2. ... because every time I look out the window, we see something beautiful!

3. ... because we took the heart, so much time and effort to make it as it is today.

Spending a holiday with us means first of all to rest the body and mind, find a lesser known Tuscany, enjoy forgotten flavors and experience nature.

We offer accommodation in 6 rooms (B & B and half board with dinner), two doubles and four triples each with bathroom, terrace and entrance from the garden, for a total of sixteen beds. Two of the bedrooms are located in the "Barn" renovated in 2010, 50 m from the cottage.

Discovering the surroundings: interesting things to see and do

We are in Alta Val di Cecina that center on cultural Volterra, close to the delightful little village of San Dalmazio which is well worth a visit and is reached by a short walk.

Not far from endorse the Parish of St. John the Baptist that preserves part of the facade in Romanesque-Norman and 2 km Rocca Sillana (XII sec.), Placed in a dominant position over the valley, one of the most significant examples of Medici fortresses and of Renaissance military architecture, built to defend the copper mines and silver that were in the territory.

In our town of Pomarance there are numerous other medieval villages to visit and the interesting Museum of geothermal Larderello.

A Sasso Pisano you can also observe the natural geothermal phenomena as fumaroles, potica, heads in their natural state, following a marked route that arouses much interest to children. Here in 2014 it opened a swimming complex fed by hot springs. Steam bath with water at 36 ° and tub and pond at room temperature.

A few kilometers away we have the Nature Reserve Berignone-Tatti and the Reserve of Monterufoli-Caselli. The latter is the largest nature reserve in Tuscany. Mediterranean forests, dense evergreen spots, with its characteristic green rock outcrops, are the dominant feature of the landscape reserves. Here you can go hiking trails, nature trails and educational paths. Reserves are home to many animals, observable directly or through their tracks. And 'possible to see the majestic flight of birds of prey, hear the drumming of the woodpecker or observe the tracks of the badger, porcupine or the wolf, the latter benefited from the presence of wild boar, deer and fallow deer.

Very close to our house flows the Torrente Pavone, stream really pristine offering traits of rare beauty and very natural.

Masso of the Maidens, along the river Cecina, is one of the most evocative of the reserve Berignone. Its cool, clear waters invite you to take a refreshing swim on hot summer days.

In about an hour's drive you can visit cities like Siena, 50 km, Florence 75 km, Pisa 80 km, San Gimignano 45 km to the beaches of the Tyrrhenian coast 40 km.

A Pomarance (7 km) there are 2 riding schools, as well as to take riding lessons, also organize walks or horse trekking. Ideal for children Monterufoli ponies, native breed (high at the withers between 135 and 140cm).

And 'possible to reach our farm by public transport, but it is not very practical. Unfortunately in our area racing coaches they are becoming less frequent, and in August there are. E 'therefore advisable to arrive by car.

We are 80 km from Pisa and 90 kilometers from Florence, the nearest station is Cecina.

Traditional cuisine

Guests of 'Farm Holiday Apparita can enjoy dishes inspired by Tuscany tradition. Dinners are always a set menu that changes every evening. They are composed of a starter, main course (pasta, soup, risotto), main course with vegetables and dessert.

In our cooking we respect the seasonality of the products, paying particular attention to the choice of the raw material that our territory generously offers (cheeses, cold cuts of Cinta Senese DOP, bread Montegemoli, pomarancino lamb, farro, beans and products such as the "Red Bean Lucca "Slow Food). We prefer ingredients from organic farming and the ingredient protagonist is definitely the extra virgin organic olive oil we produce. Vegetables, especially in summer time, come from our organic garden and herbs scattered in the garden nicely embellish our plates.
