Our area offers many possibilities to taste and discover our traditional dishes and food (fish and meat), in the surrounding villages you can participate at feasts and events.
You reach the sea in 5 minutes by car either to the north or to the south(about 7 miles). To the north there is the Maremma Natural Park’s beach and at the same distance southly you find the long sand beaches that lead to the Argentario promontory (where rock and stone beaches begin). A cycling track starts from Alberese (where it is possible to rent bikes in 3 different points) and leads to Marina di Alberese inside the Natural Park. We are provided of electric bikes that you can rent on request.
In Alberese town there are also some points for horse-riding either for experts or beginners: 2 hours for beginners inside the Park and 4 hours for the experts with the Maremman “butteri”, typical cow-boys…an unforgettable experience!

We are the first country farm with ECOLABEL certification, in 2005 we were awarded by the Tuscan and Lombardia Regions for eco-efficient parameters. Referring to our idea to promote a sustainable and eco-efficient turistic development of our territory, recently we built a mini wind-system concerning the plant of two wind blades of 12 mt. height that produce clean electricity for the consumption in our farm. In addition, we built a photovoltaic panel and a solar thermic panel that is for the heating of the water in our rooms for the consumption of our guests. Finally, we received the first “Prize for good practices for renewable energies” in the International festival of Ecology and Solidarity “Festambiente” organized by Legambiente “Festambiente” (Rispescia – August 2006) and a mention as finalist in the ""Royal Accomodation Award for Sustainable Tourism in Europe 2006"", organized by the Danish and Spanish Royal Crowns (Copenhagen, November 2006).

We remain at your disposal for any further information you may require. Don’t hesitate to contact us. Hoping to have you soon as our guests, we send you our best regards.

NB: The room availability will be checked at the moment of the actual reservation. (We are sorry, but we cannot accept animals)
