Cypress trees watching over the antique country house, gentle hills and geometric vineyard rows; these are the pictures that all over the world stand for the word Tuscany. Within such a scenery we offer you the most characteristic form of vacation in this region: the farmhouse holiday, known as agriturismo. You will be the guest in an ancient farmhouse, restructured according to the traditional Tuscan stile using the materials of former times.

In the framework of the farm, you have the chance of sharing with us the sunny side of rural life in Tuscany. You may learn how we cook bread and Focaccia in Italy, using the ancient wood-burning oven and enjoy home-made pasta together with our agricultural products extra-virgin olive oil, biologic red wine or sheep cheese. You are welcome to participate to the seasonal farming activities such as olive picking or grape harvest. Just seeking for relax? Do so in the shadow of a secular oak with a breathtaking view on Volterra. Or spend your time exploring medieval towns and the nearby cities of art, namely Siena, Florence and San Gimignano, just to mention a few of them. Or else, after a day spent at the white sand beach of the "Etruscan coast" between Cecina and Piombino, join one of the many colourful festivals in the villages around us
(see things to do).

Riders and non-riders are welcome staying with us in our ancient farmhouse of the 17th century. Be a guest at our Agriturismo Podere Palazzone in independent self-catering apartments, furnished in traditional Tuscan country-style. You may study the antique techniques of cotto-vaults construction, as each room has a different one. All apartments have direct access to the garden with the dining area around the barbecue corner. This is the perfect place to delight in the beauty of typical Tuscan landscape and get inspiration from the breathtaking sunsets that immerge our countryside in a spectacular light. While you look over Volterra and the Terre di Siena you may watch the horses strolling around on the pasture. The riding arena is just behind you. You may also opt for b&b rural guesthouses in the immediate surroundings of the barn.

Start your day at the neighing of a horse, do some horse riding in manège and enjoy horse trekking through the Natural Park of Berignone Forest. If you parents want your children to spend their holiday as horsemen while you explore Tuscany your way, leave them with us for the day. They will learn about horses, have fun and share a genuine plate of spaghetti with us.
