Gianfranco and Giulia Andreini have run the Agriturismo since the early 90s. There are two buildings that our guests can choose from: a converted barn next to the main farmhouse called La Capanna and the restored Appartamento Belvedere which is only a short walk from the main house. Both accommodations have being restored respecting the Tuscan country style: terracotta tile floors; wood-beamed roofs and wooden shutters using rustic yet elegant furniture.

The Farm Restaurant is known for its traditional Tuscan home-cooking, prepared using the farm's produce. Our robust full body red wine, extra virgin olive oil, vegetables, fruits, cold meats and salami, vinegar, jams, plus fresh eggs all come from the farm. Mamma Giulia is very much appreciated for her cakes and home-made jams. On request, Signora Giulia, will prepare vegetarian, vegan or celiac meals and can accommodate any food allergies our guests may have.


Chianina

We breed Chianina cattle to offer the best of the Tuscan meat.

Chianina cow breed

The Chianina Cow bred has been present in Italy for 2500 years. The " ox " Chianina was much appreciated by the Etruscans and Romans for its white blanket used it in triumphal processions and sacrifices to the Gods, as we find described in the Georgics and the Latin poets and depicted in bas-relief bronzes and Roman antiquities, including the famous Arch of Titus in the Roman Forum. The name Chianina comes from the Val di Chiana, an area where it has always been raised. Today it is present in Tuscany, Umbria and northern Lazio. The Chianina is recognized by porcelain-white coat, the black pigmentation of the muzzle and tongue, from the head light and elegant with short horns, long and cylindrical trunk with the back and loins wide and limbs longer than in other breeds is, in fact, the largest cattle in the world. After the Second World War, due to its capability to adapt to different environments, the Chianina breed has become a " cosmopolitan ", crossing national borders to reach Asia, China, Russia, Australia and the Americas. Once used primarily for work in the countryside, the Chianina is now considered one of the finest meat in the world. Among the breeds of cattle protected by the Consortium Chianina is perhaps the one that now enjoys a more noble and well-established, thanks to the reputation that has been able to conquer the culinary myth of Bistecca alla Fiorentina.
