On the hills surrounding Florence near the ancient fountain of the poet, you may spend your holidays on a real fairy tale farm among  horses, donkey, geese, hens and cows.

Here men and animals live and work together to fulfil the dream of an organic and as far as possible, self-sufficient island.

Guests can take part in the activities of the farm or just relax completely and enjoy the peace of these places.

On a farm holiday at  il Poeta you can have horse-riding lessons , go horseback  riding  and  donkey trekking.

For gourmet food lovers, we prepare typical meals attending to every detail and using healthy and delicious products from the farm.

Il Poeta farm holiday is the ideal place for anyone who loves animals, good food, nature and the environment.

We have apartments and one room for our guests, perfectly furnished in the Tuscan style and equipped with every comfort.

The apartments have a large bedroom, a kitchen and living room, bathroom and a private space outside. All the areas are close to one another and can be connected to host families or larger groups.

In our very small restaurant you can taste dishes with forgotten flavours made using mainly our products and the products of regional businesses.

In winter the meals are served in the chimney room,  a warm and welcoming room with a beautiful fire that is always lit. In summer, we eat in the garden and enjoy the freshness of the  evenings.

All our guests sit around the same table because  a farm holiday also implies conviviality and a delight in getting to know people who often share the same love for nature and the environment.

The farmhouse complex was built around an old medieval tower, on a sun drenched location at a height of 400 meters (1300 feet).

Though the farm “The Poet” is immersed in surrounding woods and olive trees, it is perfectly situated to offer a variety of daily outings and activities to the vacationing guests.

Florence is only only 30 km (18 miles) away and we will provide you with all the necessary information ranging from the best restaurants to the most interesting cultural events.

Nearby there are also numerous, well-marked nature paths for walks, trekking or mountain biking, away from traffic roads and starting directly from the complex.

Of course, you are welcome to bring along your four-legged friends!
