DESCRIPTION
Volterra - b & b in Tuscany countryside

This traditional farm house with its small barn, is located three kilometres away from Volterra, set amongst olive trees, many fruit trees and cypress trees.
A census conducted in 1820 by the local land register (in Italian catasto leopoldino), in reality shows that this house was already old at that time. You can see this from its angular stones that are very old and hold the original main building, and also from the style that makes it a traditional Tuscan farm house. One of the apartments and a small independent building are available for tourists to rent.
This farm holiday stay offers organic produce and half board or dinner bed and breakfast stays to its guests.
During the year numerous courses are organised, amongst which are beginners Italian language courses for foreigners, courses on Italian history and culture, botany courses, water colour painting and Tuscan cuisine cookery classes.

 
Volterra - b & b in Tuscany countryside

During your stay in this farm holiday house it is possible to go half board or dinner bed and breakfast in order to sample the local cuisine cooked in the traditional way around the Volterra area by the house chef.
The guests can sample and also buy extra-virgin cold pressed olive oil, home made olive pate’, tomato sauces to eat with your main courses, sauce made with artichokes, home made jams – everything is cooked and prepared using produce from the working farm co-operative. Of course, you can also eat the fresh artichokes grown in Volterra (the famous Tuscan Morellino variety) and those from San Miniato and many other types of produce available in the vegetable garden according to the season. During the olive harvesting season, which is the first two weeks in November, those who wish to, can take part in hand picking the olives and witness how they transform into the precious extra virgin olive oil which is entirely organically grown.

The apartment called “Grande” and the Studio are the two accommodations reserved to guests.
The apartment called “Grande” is located inside the farm house, all the rooms have one door/window which opens to the outside, which gives all guests wonderful panoramic views across the valley.  It can occupy up to 5 people. It is made of a kitchen/living room, two double bedrooms, a bathroom with a shower and a huge veranda where you can eat and relax.
The studio apartment is instead ideal for a couple. It has been restored with a great deal of attention to detail. It is a small building separate from the main farm holiday house and it has bare brick walls. It comprises of a kitchenette, one ample main bedroom, a bathroom with shower and a veranda where it is possible to eat al fresco.

Whether guests are staying at this farm holiday house or elsewhere, all can take part in any of the numerous courses available throughout the year.
Amongst the most popular courses that have been repeated throughout the years we would like to recommend the following:
- outdoor walks in search of wild plants
- water colour painting lessons in the tuscan countryside
- cookery classes to learn how to bake bread and cook traditional tuscan cuisine
- Last but not least, Italian language and culture classes for foreigners.
The Italian lessons, even for those who are absolute beginners, will be made by mother tongue Italian teachers.
Learning to speak Italian in a working farm holiday stay is so much better than any normal language courses in schools. Your are immersed in the tuscan countryside a few minutes from Volterra, surrounded by a tranquil and relaxed atmosphere, next to real folk from the region.
Within the programme, visits to the city of arts are organized, you can also take part to screening of movies, meetings and educational day excursions. At the farm holiday house it is also possible to organize parties, dinners, meetings and ceremonies
