Often the guests of a farmhouse do not just want to visit the cities or the Tuscan villages but want to find slower and relaxed life rhythms.
In the farmhouses you can taste the typical dishes of the Tuscan tradition cooked starting from direct production ingredients such as wine, extra virgin olive oil, but also “vinsanto”, vegetables, eggs, chickens rabbits, lambs and more.
Often it is also possible to buy these products and bring home a bit of the genuineness of Tuscan cuisine.
Today the old rural houses have been converted into comfortable residence with pool, where the rooms or apartments are equipped with heating and air conditioning.

A didactic farm is the ideal environment to allow the child to establish “true” contact with nature and the agricultural world.
Spending a day in the countryside, lying on the grass, visiting a stable, stroking a goat, gathering cobwebs, sowing, smelling the must … are experiences unknown to most of today’s children.
It is the farmer, who lives on a daily basis peasant reality, the most suitable figure for transmitting love for the earth and at the same time stimulating the curiosity of the children.
By exploring, observing and rediscovering nature, the child becomes in this experience, active protagonist, capable of expressing his perceptions and emotions.
Many Tuscan farmhouses have Didactict Farm to ensure this wonderful experience for children.
