Tocchi, Siena-Tuscany Borgo Ferraia

15 Bedrooms — 28 Pax

Luxurious hamlet on the hills between Siena and the Maremma

This property offers a taste of the real Tuscany with all the modern amenities of today. A perfect location sets the villa near the Merse River, south of Siena, and only a 40 minute drive to the Maremman Coast. The location also allows those wanting to experience all of the true flavors that Tuscany has to offer. From the organic garden and greenhouse, to the state-of-the-art private astronomical observatory, this property offers those a way to spend time learning while relaxing. This is a place to organize a learning vacation focusing on the richness of the land of Siena. Other amenities include a spa, sauna, horses, as well as culinary programs on request.

There is also something new to discover in every season: from the splendid colors of the autumn foliage, to rides on horseback, as well as relaxing in pools of water at different temperatures - all amidst breathtaking scenery. This property is ideal for friends on vacation or destination events, gatherings of stargazers, yoga courses or incentive groups, managers who need to recharge their batteries , team building programs, and small-scale meetings or original events.

A visit to this exclusive property is a unique human and cultural experience. It is a mutual exchange of feelings, ideas and information. A coming together of different ways and worlds that enrich one another. There are many “slogans” that become reality here: you can see for yourself what environmental sustainability means and how it is possible to make use of alternative sources of energy, such as solar panels, photovoltaic cells and biomass heating fueled by wood chips. You can try out a zero food mile diet, i.e. one in which everything is produced on the spot: going to the garden and picking fruit and vegetables straight from the plant, preparing meat, salami and cheeses, gathering herbs. You can learn all about a lifestyle that enjoyed great favor among the upper classes of ancient Rome many centuries ago and has now been forgotten. Nothing complicated. On the contrary, all you have to do is go back to that now unfamiliar simplicity and take a break from it all. What the Romans called otium is time to devote to yourself, to physical activities and pleasures like reading, playing games, philosophizing, exchanging dreams and ideas. Pursuing beauty and harmony and getting in touch with nature, family and friends.
