Guests can use the family's beautiful pool where they can relax surrounded by vines, olives, local plants and palm trees, shrubs, lavender and rosemary bushes.
The restful background music is provided by birdsong and, on sultry days, by the singing of the cicadas. There are daybeds, umbrellas, tables and chairs around the pool.
For those who like walking or trekking, from Poggiarelli it's possible to choose between country footpaths which offer views of Chianti with the added possibility of encounters with small wild animals such as hares, pheasants, deer....or roads (with very light traffic) where you can easily reach the nearest village, Greve in Chianti, which is only 2 and a half km away.
For those who prefer a restful holiday, on the ground floor there is a large lounge with a fireplace where guests can browse through the books, magazines and guidebooks.
GARDEN AND PANORAMIC TERRACE
In the gardens and green areas around the house you'll soon find a favourite spot with a “rustic” resting place where you may catch sight of a passing hare or pheasant or where you can watch the tractor at work in the vineyard. And then, not far away you can see our three goats and the families of hens and chickens which live freely in the meadow. The large terrace is ideal for looking at the view, reading, studying, eating......
COOKERY LESSONS OR COOKING CLASS
Learn to cook traditional Tuscan dishes together with the lady of the house in a few hours you can cook a complete dinner, from the starter to the dessert. She'll tell you about the history of the typical Tuscan cuisine, she'll let you in on the secrets and teach you her family's old recipes. During dinner, included in the cost of the lesson and open to other guests, you'll be able to sample the dishes which you've prepared together.
