Property description

Centrally located at the point where the provinces of Pisa, Siena and Florence meet, you can find the Tenuta di Ghizzano, which stretches for about 360 hectares among the gentle Pisan hills.

Our villa and farmhouses, built at the end of the 19th century, have been restored maintaining the original structure, but they are all fully equipped with modern comforts such as, satelite TV. and Wi-Fi Internet.

They are Situated in the middle of the countryside, among wheat fields, olive trees, vineyards, buzzards, pheasants, bee-eaters and roe-deers. Even if every farmhouse has it's own unique style, each of them have a swimming pool, a barbecue and a large garden. 

Ghizzano, the little medieval village, reachable on foot from all of our farmhouses, has everything you may need: a bakery, a grocery store, a local club and an Italian clothes shop.

Within a ten minute drive you can find Peccioli, where there are some excellent restaurants, reviewed on TripAdvisor, banks, supermarkets, a chemist and butchers. You are only 30 minutes by car to reach Volterra and San Gimignano, while it takes about an hour to reach the most well-known cultural cities such as Lucca, Siena, Florence and Pisa. As a local would say, you are within 'shooting distance' of every main historical attraction!

Wine and extra-virgin olive oil have always been produced here, since 1370, which you are invited to taste in our ancient historical cellar or in our beautiful Italian Style Garden.

Our farming method is completely organic; that’s why you can still find rich and diversified local vegetation and animals that make the environment even more perfect.

We look forward to welcoming you!

OTHER ACTIVITIES:

1) ANIMAL WATCHING:
Our purpose is to bring you closer to the wonders of nature and to our great variety of animals, such as deer and roe deer.
The project 'Animal Watching' was created with this purpose.
You will be guided through the woods In the quiet of the sunset and dawn. with binoculars we will observe the open space where deer and roe deer come out of the woods in search for food.

During the breeding season - July and August - females make a high whistle to attract males and males roar and flash their white rump. However males may also roar or make low grunting noises when alarmed. During the rut, bucks will spread out and females move between them. At this time of year one can see fallow deer ungrouped compared to the rest of the year when they try to stay together.

In early fall roe deer males mate and they chase the females.
You can see the roe deer primarily at dusk, they live in the woods and they may venture into grasslands and sparse forests. In June females usually give birth to two spotted fawns of opposite sexes.

It's up to you what time of the year you choose to meet them.
At the end of this full immersion into the green, experts will be happy to answer your questions.
We are willing to take you on a guided trip around the natural habitat and the fields that tells us about the peasants culture and the history of the little village. During thistrip, there will be an optional stop to taste the specialities cultivated on our farm and the surrounding area.

2) WINE AND EXTRA VIRGIN OLIVE OIL TASTING
We are willing to make you taste the exceptional wines that we produce and that we export all over the world. They have been highly rated from all the major wine magazines such as Wine Spectator, Wine Advocate and Gambero Rosso.

The other traditional product of the family is the extravirgin organic olive oil, that you can taste with our wine.

The olive pressing is a cold and continuous cycle pressing within 24 hours from harvest ; we obtain a really fresh and flavoured oil.

3) MASSAGE
There is a nice and comfortable room dedicated exclusively to relaxing massage. It's usually recommended to enjoy a pleasant, relaxing and regenerating hour and also as a relief from various functional unbalances.



SOMETHING ELSE ABOUT THE AGRITURISM

The agriturism has 2 VILLA , 2 FARMHOUSES AND 4 APARTMENTS , all located in the middle of the hills, 5 or 10 minutes walkIing from the Ghizzano Village, through olive trees. Initially, its belonged to the farmer, and thus the name “The Colonial House”. It is usual for such a house to be located at one side or in the centre of a field called “podere”. The “Podere” was a piece of land given by the owner to the peasant : the crop was divided among them in equal parts. This system was very common in the late Middle Ages and was called “Mezzadria”.
the houses were built on one side of the of land (podere). This allowed people to get to the main road easier and allowed easy access of the crop wagons to get to the market.
It was our grand grandfather who, by the middle of the 19th century, built these houses and named the places after the patron saint of the crops. Thus came to life “Casa poderale Il Monte & Santa Giulia”. Casa Poderale' San Prospero' .The Gamekeeper''s house : today called Casa Guardia . VILLA GORGO who was the huning house of my grandfather, who has the noble title of 'COUNT' ,today called Villa gorgo. 4 beutifull houses eachone with his own swimmingpool and his own garden.
In order to protect and highlight the beauty of the landscape where these houses are, we did our best to preserve the original features of the structure. The beautiful landscape that you can see from the windows is still rich of wildlife that you can appreciate having long walks along the paths crossing the whole area. Biking, riding & bird watching are the other exciting sports that you may practice in this 'piece of Eden'.



SOME MORE NOTICE ABOUT THE ESTATE
The estate currently extends over approximately 865 acres with 45 acres of vineyards, 50 acres of olive groves, 370 acres of cereals, 370 acres of wood and poplars groves. The woods are still rich of wildlife: hawks, buzzards, bee eaters, pheasants, hares and roes the t you can appreciate having long walks along the paths crossing the whole area.

I speak english good, franch really well, and spanish I understand quite all and I can speak only a little, I'm studying deutsch.
