Usually, all those Tuscan farmhouses that have been renovated and converted into accommodation facilities are considered “holiday farms”, but only few of them really are.
This depend not only on how the facilities are managed, but also and above all on the kind of hospitality offered.
Our family has been farming the estate for four generations, which makes us the repository of the ancient knowledge linked to a demanding but fascinating work, characterized by profound love for the land. We would like to transmit our love for our land to our guests while we receive them in the very heart of the farm: the house where our ancestors used to receive their tenant-farmers.
Only thanks to a similar passion and knowledge of this wonderful land and to our dedication to hospitality can we take care of our guests as if they were members of our great family and make their holidays a dream. If you wish, you can participate in the grape and olive harvest and we will obviously be glad to offer you a bottle of our wine, which you can purchase together with the olive oil of our own production. At the holiday farm, you will meet Cesare, the discreet and industrious head of the family, who in his spare time lovingly takes care of the garden.
He will tell you the story of the farm and proudly offer you the vegetables produced in the small vegetable garden beside the park.Our Caring Presence
The Ciampalinis dedicate with passion, love and warmth to hospitality. With their constant discreet presence in the holiday farm, they try to meet any single requirement without ever saying “no”.
