Designed for people who like to experience Tuscany from within it. We produce our organic extra virgin olive oil and the olive harvest is for our guests a great chance to be part of one of the most joyful experience of country life in Tuscany.

Combined with the 3 cooking classes on Traditional Family kitchen, we give here the chance for a unique experience: picking olives and participating to the process of olive pressing, and extra virgin olive oil making. An olive oil tasting class, under the guidance of an expert, is included into the weekly schedule.

This course is available just during the first two weeks of November. Cooking on this time of the year is based on truffles, mushrooms, pumpkin, stew, and soups. It's winter cooking....and fresh made extra virgin olive oil will be the king in the kitchen.

Daily excursions to art cities, medieval towns, open markets, food and wine producers complete this authentic experience on real Tuscan life and cooking.
