    Description

    Hi! We (Cristiano, Sarah & children Noah 3years & Juna 1year) are a multilanguage family with an organic farm and horse stable in southern Tuscany. We produce olive oil, hay & oats and we board 7 horses. We have a big garden, 3 own horses, dogs & cats. We mainly eat organic or local food; we are not vegetarians but have no problem hosting Vegetarians. However we don't host Vegans because cooking vegan seems too complicated. Cristiano works also outside the farm, while Sarah works on the farm and with the horses. We speak italian, english and swiss-german. Our farm is best reached by car even though there are some buses nearby. There are several small towns in the area and the next bigger city is 25km away while it takes about 25min to get to the sea by car.

    Help

    Naturally on a farm there is always lots of things to be done. We can need help in the stable; there is almost always something to do in the garden; a fence to be fixed or something to be painted. We can also use help cutting back the olive trees in September and March or harvesting olives in Oct./Nov. Oviously there is always something to be done in the household or some babysitting while Sarah works with the horses.

    Accommodation

    We have an old camper which we renovated with lots of love (glamping-style). It has a double bed with real mattress and it has everything for making your own breakfast (on our cost). It stands right outside the horse stable under a big tree. So you will wake up in the middle of nature with the sounds of horses and birds. There is a complete new bathroom with shower to use for you in our modern horse stable. Lunch and dinner will be together with us.

    What else ...

    In your time off there are lots of gorgeous villages to visit, natural hot springs, museums, the sea, etruscan ruins and a lots more. We are 1 hour away from Siena and about 2 hours from Pisa and Florence. Its best to move with a car, but there are some buses and a train station in nearby villages.

    Can possibly accept pets

    We accept pets if we have the feeling that they will get along with our dogs and cats, if they are no danger for our children and will create no problems around horses and riders.
