A Biological Farmhouse-Agriturismo near Montepulciano in Tuscany
This eco-agriturismo lies in the beautiful, peaceful Tuscan countryside, just outside the historic city walls (800m.) of the medieval town of Montepulciano, It has been completely restored according to the principles of "Bio architecture", which means that only natural materials are used. Hot water and heating is obtained by means of solar panels. On the farm they produce saffron, olive oil, honey and various types of grass for feeding the horses.
The four large rooms of the agriturismo, each with private bathroom, are on the first and second floors of the farmhouse. All the rooms have beautiful views of the Tuscan hills or of Montepulciano. All rooms have wooden floors and a good king-size bed 220 cm long. Breakfast (obviously based on organic products) is served in the breakfast room, or in the garden when the weather permits. Occasionally they prepare dinners with home-grown vegetables.
The agriturismo has a special pool. It looks like a cross-over between a lake and a swimming pool. They call it a bio-pool. The water is not cleaned with chemical products, but with plants that are just outside the edge of the pool. The result is a natural pool with beautiful clear water. Unfortunately I was there in the winter and could not try it!
This agriturismo is the perfect base for day trips to Pienza, Montichiello, Bagno Vignoni and San Quirico. Larger towns too, such as Siena, Perugia, Arezzo and Orvieto are easily accessible from the agriturismo. For lovers of culture, tranquility, good food and an afternoon relaxing by the natural pool!
