Family friendly agriturismo with large pool and new apartments in Tuscany
This agriturismo has the same owner as agriturismo number 95. After I was greeted with a glass of white wine we drove along a country road to this agriturismo for an extensive tour. It was immediately clear me, the owner is a born host who does everything to make his guests feel at home.
The agriturismo is surrounded by cornfields and has stunning views of Volterra and the surrounding Tuscan hills. The grain of this agriturismo is organic and they sell it to Barilla for making pasta. The agriturismo also has 400 olive trees for their own production of Tuscan olive oil and they make white and red wine and honey.
The agriturismo consists of two fully renovated Tuscan style farmhouses with a total of 17 apartments of different composition. There are apartments with 1, 2 and 3 bedrooms. There is also a separate house with 4 bedrooms, ideal for a large family or two families. All apartments have a 2-seater sofa bed in the living room and an open kitchen with a stove, microwave and fridge freezer. The furnishing is Tuscan, functional (no TV) and colorful. Also all apartments have a balcony or terrace with a private table and chairs and fantastic views over the Tuscan hills.
Pool & child friendly
The agriturismo has a large pool with jacuzzi. Because of its location on a hill you have beautiful views of the Tuscan countryside and Volterra. Around the pool tehre are sunbeds, tables and chairs and a large lawn for children to play. The agriturismo also has a playground, a ping pong table, a football game and there are a number of (child) bicycles that you can use. At the nearby agriturismo 95 there are various animals such as horses, donkeys, ponies and dogs that children may help feed.
The owner takes pleasure to have his guests discover Tuscan cuisine and three times a week, you are invited into his restaurant at the nearby agriturismo 95. On Saturday there is a buffet with all kinds of Tuscan appetizers and where everyone can get to know each other. On Tuesday there is pizza night (from the wood oven!) and on Thursday there is pasta night. The fresh pasta can be made by the children under the guidance of the host. The bread for the meals they bake in the afternoon in the wood oven.
For these evenings all guests of the 4 agriturismo's of the owner are invited, so it's quite a happening. Outside on the covered terrace you eat at long tables and one times a week there is live music. For the children there is a bouncy castle in the garden during these dinners. The food is free and you only pay for your drinks. A bottle of red or white house wine of the agriturismo you buy already for 8 euros.
A special child-friendly agriturismo with nice apartments, great pool and very welcoming owners. Quietly situated between the cornfields with stunning views of Volterra. Because there are 17 apartments, there is more chance of playmates for children.
