Tenuta di Spannocchia in Siena, Italy


Tenuta di Spannocchia

As a working organic farm, Spannocchia provides guests with a unique way to visit the Tuscan countryside. Rustic farmhouses are available for weeklong stays, and two historic bed-and-breakfasts welcome overnight guests. While classic activities such as hiking and Chianti wine tasting are on offer, the farm (which relies on traditional land management practices) also serves as an educational center, with a focus on nature conservation and the preservation of cultural traditions. After a day spent exploring the olive orchards, learning about cheese-making or strolling through local gardens, you can return for a meal featuring organic ingredients and house vintages while the sun sets over the surrounding hills.
