Fontepetrini Farm is situated in a typically Tuscan landscape and has a long tradition in the cultivation of crops, vines and olive trees following the old sharecropping system. The main farm (an ancient medieval fortified building of the 12th century) and several farmhouses are situated in an area of about 100 hectares.
The products of the farm are typical of the Tuscan tradition: red wine, vin santo, olive oil and crops such as wheat and other cereals. One of the sharefarmers breeds cattle of the wellknown Chianina breed.
One of the farms, Ginestra, has been recently restructured for guests. This farm has an elevated position and offers a beautiful view over the surrounding woods and hills and over the Arno Valley. The guests can walk or ride their mountain bikes in the quiet of uncontaminated woods and open fields.
Ginestra can accommodate as far as 12 guests in two different flats, "Il Bosco" (4 guests) and "L'Olivo" (6 guests). There is also an independent room, "La Colombaia" situated in the tower on the top floor. The flats and the separated room have their entrance from a panoramic loggia on the first floor. The loggia on the ground floor is at the disposal of the guests too.
"IL BOSCO" (80sqm - max 4 persons): kitchen with fireplace, livingroom, 2 bedrooms, 1 bathroom with shower.
