A XVIIIth century farmhouse in the silence of the countryside, tranquility, aromas and flavors of Tuscan kitchen paired with extra virgin organic olive oil.
Thanks for making us feel “at home” in this corner of Tuscany. Thank you for your lovely welcome and for your willingness to advise us what to visit. Thank you for the delicious dinners we have been served. We will definitely come back….
These words left by two guests on the “book of memories” may be enough to sum up the experience that we offer in our Farmhouse.
My family has been present on the territory of Calci for more than 300 years, with our farm which has always produced extra virgin olive oil. This land, of course, is in our blood!
To the traditional activities of the farm, for the production of extra virgin organic olive oil, I also added the farmhouse Al Palazzaccio. The structure consists of two apartments, which can accommodate groups of 4 or more persons each, and of a double bedroom with bathroom. The limited number of guests guarantees a relaxing stay as if you were “at home” with the certainty of being pampered and looked after by the hosts. In fact, my family itself lives in this farmhouse and we are always available for advice or suggestions to allow you to discover the most beautiful views of the surrounding area.
The location of the farm, although secluded, is not far from the village of Calci, reachable in ten minutes on foot. One of the walking trails that we suggest is the one leading to the “Certosa Monumental” of Calci and to the Romanesque church reachable along a pleasant way through the village with stretches in the countryside.
At the Palazzaccio we have opened a small restaurant where we prepare the dishes of local cuisine only with products from our garden or Tuscan products at km 0, all accompanied by our extra virgin organic olive oil. The restaurant reflects our desire to offer genuine food to be enjoyed in peace: in fact the seats at the table are only 12.
If you want to take home all the flavors of Monte Pisano we also have a small shop where we sell our farm’s products such as oil, jams – that you can enjoy in our breakfast – lavender and soap. In summer time we offer evenings of tasting of our products, an opportunity to know each other, to tell the stories and the life of the countryside and see a beautiful starry sky!
Our guests will have the chance to meet the animals of our farm: chickens, donkeys, sheep and our lovely cats. Depending on the season, you can follow the various agricultural works, which, as in olden days, follow the rhythms dictated by nature.
Guests have access to games, ping-pong table, swimming pool – ideal for cooling off on hot days – and a relaxation area with a hammock, to read or to be lulled by the murmur of the wind in the leaves.
The love for our land, its history and its human rhythms has found its natural outlet in the sense of hospitality and welcome we convey to all those who come to visit us at the Palazzaccio.
