Hospitality at our farm
Our 30 hectare organically-cultivated farm (ICEA), is situated on a hill among olive-groves, orchards, fields and woods, with a lovely view over the valley of Cecina as far as the sea. This environment offers many opportunities for glorious excursions through the Tuscan countryside: along trails in the woods, across hilltops with far-reaching views or in the pineforest along the coast. The sea is a mere 10 kilometres away with lovely sandy beaches.
Close by there are several picturesque villages, some dating back to mediaeval times and not far away famous and artistic cities such as Volterra, Pisa, San Gimignano, Siena, and Florence to visit. Also nearby are interesting nature reserves, thermal baths, and archaeological sites. Elba and the other little islands of the Tuscan archipelago are easy to reach.
In the nearby village of Riparbella 4 km. away or in Cecina, 8 km., you can find a full range of shops, banks, chemists and typical Tuscan restaurants and pizzerias. In some periods of the year we offer a restaurant service at ‘Le Serre’. Our kitchen, with mostly organic products, serves breakfast and dinner but only upon request. Our own ‘Le Serre’ products are also for sale at the farm shop.
We offer farm accommodation both in ground floor flats (a) of 35 or 40 sq.m.in a separate building and in a larger apartment (b) of about 90 sq.m. in the old farmhouse. The flats each comprise a living-room with two sofa-beds and cooking area, a bed room with double bed and fully-fitted bathroom with shower. The larger unit comprises a large kitchen with fireplace, a living-room with sofa-beds, two bed rooms with double beds and two fully-fitted bathrooms with showers. All offer garden facilities and it is also possible to take a refreshing bathe in our pool, 20x12x3 m., dug to receive rain and spring water.
The daily price of each accommodation includes hot-cold water, electricity, gas, wood for heating and farm vegetables from the kitchen-garden. Linen, crockery and towels are also included.
Holidays at ‘Le Serre’ are especially suitable for families with children.
