...and more
In ancient times, the territory of Tuscia was called Etruria, taking the name from its inhabitants, called Etruscans or Etrurians. The latter were organized into twelve groups and occupied large areas of Tuscany, Lazio and Umbria; they were excellent in metalworking, in weapon crafting and in the arts. Their reign declined as a result of Roman expansion to the north. In this area, you will find everything you are looking for: hills, lakes, woods, art and history at will.

Mount Amiata is included in the provinces of Siena and Grosseto, in southern Tuscany. It is a now extinct (not the right word) a dormant volcano, rich in vegetation, ponds and  with many suitable places for excursions and walks to discover this territory, either by feet or on horseback. Thanks to its volcanic nature, the area is full of hot springs, some free to go, where you can spend a day in total relaxation.

This area is rich in medieval castles, like the one of Arcidosso, in the province of Grosseto. In addition to the castle in this village, you can visit the Church of Saint Nicolò.
Another historic building to visit is the Abbey of Saint Antimo, a complex near the town of Montalcino, an area famous for the production of the famous red wine.
Another interesting place is the one where the “Villa Sforzesca” was built in the 16th century by Cardinal Alessandro Sforza, as his summer residence.
In the “Fosso Bianco” (white ditch) of the San Filippo thermal baths, close to Mount Amiata, there are pools where you can swim freely and throughout the year, given the very hot water temperature.

The waters are sulphurous and have numerous healing properties for epidermis diseases and the respiratory system. A part of the thermal baths have free access, while another has been included in the main thermal establishment.
Monte Amiata has a rich historical tradition, especially as to  what concerns the festivals. In June, there is a popular festival of arts and crafts where performances in period costumes are staged.

A more modern festival is  the one that takes place in July in the village of Roccalbegna, full of food stands dedicated to dumplings and beer. Another festival in medieval costume is that of the Palio delle Sante, which ends with an archery contest, very characteristic.
A very special event that deserves to be seen during a stay in the territory of Monte Amiata is that which takes place in August in Piancastagnaio in the province of Siena. All the inhabitants set up a 200-meter-long carpet of flowers, built with colored sawdust and depicting religious scenes. (source siviaggia.it)




You can decide to stay in the farm and participate in our agricultural activities to learn the secrets of the countryside. We are also used to  children (young and older ones)  visiting the farm and we entertain them by explaining how to grow a field or a vegetable garden, how to raise animals or milk a cow. They can also participate in first person in the cultivation and harvesting of vegetables and fresh eggs. Ladies will also be able to learn our secrets in the kitchen!
