The new frontier of tourism in Tuscany is without doubt the farmhouse with swimming pool. A new form of holiday for Italians original and well-established for the rest of Europe. Tuscany is now full of houses scattered in the countryside of a careful restoration have become the farm, on top of hills planted with wheat or expanses of vineyards and olive groves, biological, or close to major centers, real hotel in the countryside with swimming pool and any kind of comfort ready to welcome the most demanding customers. Today there are farms with wellness area, fine restaurants and elegant settings. Originally the farm was established as a real country house with swimming pool, the grandmother’s house, with original furnishings, open spaces, a fireplace, with the barnyard animals and a lot of nature around. Our agency love to publicize just those who represent the old farm house. The goal is to restore a real contact between tourists and the country life. There are too many farms that have departed from the original plan holiday on a farm, and have lost contact with the customer. The idea that we have about country house or farmhouse in Tuscany is linked to traditions, tastes the pleasure of spending evenings with candlelight and the sound of crickets, talking with people in the farm and know the Tuscan countryside. The farm was established in the eighties, for a real need to reconnect with nature and the earth, after a period of abandonment of fields, people have felt a natural need to go back to basics and for this reason, some pioneers of this new frontier tourist Tuscany, have started to restore the old abandoned houses where left extended families sharing home and work. The first guests arrived in the farm in Tuscany in the 1980 and they founded the original floors, fruit gardens, swimming pools, gardens that the owners cultivated for himself and his guests. The reception on a farm was spontaneous, sincere, did not speak the same language but were bound by a new found enthusiasm and to make known their land, the Tuscan.
Some cottages have retained the spirit of the pioneers of today, are still managed by the owners who look after their guests with spontaneous affection, without time constraints. Personally I prefer the realities as the choice to include in our catalog this farm, we would like to restore the holiday on a farm with the original design, making known to our customers not only swimming pools, tastefully furnished rooms and good food but also the ‘warmth and good humor of Tuscan families.
