Interaction with guests
We live on site, so we are always available in case of problems, to give advice, or just for a chat if our guests wish to learn more about the local area or the olive oil production. We like to interact with our guests, to learn more about them but we are very careful not to disturb their privacy. Some of our cats are also very friendy and they are expert in PR. As for the donkeys they like to let our guests know that they are there and that they are welcome to go and pet them...but mind the fingers!

About the neighbourhood
Vinci, birthplace of Leonardo, is an historical village surrounded by vineyards and olive groves and is centrally situated with easy access to the major cities of art and places of interest. Enjoy staying in a landscape that has changed little since Leonardo himself lived here.In Vinci there are 3 museums dedicated to the life and works of Leonardo and from April to June Vinci holds special lectures and cultural events to celebrate the life of its most illustrious citizen. During the summer there are many village fairs and sagre; with many different events, local specialities, and of course fireworks. At the end of July Vinci hosts 'La festa dell'unicorno' which is a fantasy festival with CosPlay and important guests.
Getting around
The closest railway station is Empoli (12 Km from Vinci) which has good connections to Florence, Pisa and Siena.
We always recommend to take the train to get to Florence because of the traffic and the difficulty of finding parking, moreover the main station in Florence is set in the middle of the city.
Other towns or villages can be reached by car: Lucca, Pistoia, Certaldo, S.Gimignano, Volterra, Montecatini,etc
