Many architectural featuresand details prove this origin. It was only natural to turn Monasterial hospitalityinto a warm is to be a warm and cozy home whereyou can find comfort and relaxation along the famous VIA ROMEA (the old main road linking Rome with Florence and north Italy). With a complete restoration done to return that original charm and beauty of the region to the HOUSE ON THE ROCK, you can experience the conforting atmosphere.

Marina prepares them with passion and love using the fruits grown on the hills property! These include cherries, apple, plums, figs, mulberries and more: depending on the season you come to visit us you can pick these fruits directly from the trees! Durimg lunch it is possible to enjoy the pleasure of our typical tuscan oil prepared with our olives. Relax in your bedroom gazing at typical tuscany ceiling, have a drink while sitting by the old fireplace, enjoy your breakfast on the gorgeous terrace overlooking the breathtaking view of the hills. in addition this summer a nice swimming pool will be ready enhancing the special relaxing moments viewing the surrounding Tuscan Hills! we think all the Borgo in ecologic way. In fact in the property there is an important source of groundwater absolutely drinkable and for energy we use big fotovoltaic shelter. With 'natural' stone reliefs on the bedroom walls, classic and cmnfortable furniture, make this HOUSE ON THE ROCKS your relaxing getaway while in italy!More

About the neighbourhood
It's very difficult to find an ancient and well restored BORGO like ours where is possible to stay with other 25/30 relatives and friends being absolutely confortable. 7/8 families may share the property having their own privacy and sharing only the free time and happy moments. Moreover in our Borgo is possible to spend free time in many,many,many ways. Play soccer, volley, beach tennis, swimming, hiking,bird watching ect...every sport in our property garden Close to the property (25 mn driving) you can go to swim in a beautiful river with clean and fresh water or , if you prefer, in our panoramic swiming pool inside tuscan olive grove. Every morning we like spend time looking in the silence the pink colour of dawn.
