In the heart of Tuscany, near the ancient medieval village of Certaldo (FI), it extends VILLA FOSSI, an old manor house (700 SQM) used for agritourism (2 Spighe) that dominates the over 100 HECTARES of typical Tuscan landscape, with vineyard ( 6.5 hectares, average production 1000 quintals of grapes), olive grove (7.5 hectares, 2000 plants, average production 300 quintals of olives) and grains (65 hectares of wheat, sunflower and corn).

VILLA FOSSI, with access by a beautiful driveway of cypress trees, has a total area of 700 SQM, divided into 370 SQM of the manor house (12 beds) and SQM 230 of the dependance, built in the near BARN (8 beds) and divided into 2 independent apartments, just steps from the panoramic SWIMMING POOL.
