Podere La Casellina
property description: With the joviality and the warmth of peasant culture, we offer our hospitality with care and discretion, trying to satisfy all needs.
All our guests, longing for rest and for being in touch with nature, enjoy the slow rhythm of the country.
We have transformed the hayloft and the stables into three comfortable bedrooms with bathrooms.
We still live in the three hundred years old farmhouse where guests can enjoy a full breakfast, with fresh eggs, homemade jams and cakes, and meals based on products coming from our fields like oil, wine and vegetables. The food is typical Tuscan and goes according to the seasons and our grandmother's
Our family have been living here since 1936, when the local church handed over this podere to our grandparents, after their wedding, under a form of contract called mezzadria (sharecropping).
In the years many people have come over to enjoy the atmosphere of this place and now, in order to keep the tradition of this rich and beautiful land, we would love to hand it down on all our guests.
For those who would not join us with working the fields, you can either go for walks through the farm, enjoy an old-style picnic in the vineyard or in the olive grove, or simply walk through the wonderful wood paths, picking chestnuts and precious wild mushrooms.
