The farm

A country house in Tuscany

We are pleasure to welcome you in our country house, where you have the possibility of enjoying, among vineyards and olive trees, the scents and flavors of the Tuscan tradition immersed in an uncontaminated nature, in a setting of absolute comfort and relax. Podere le Spighe is an old 18th century farm in the outskirts of Castiglion Fiorentino, in the heart of the Valdichiana Valley. The first time that i saw the country house there was hardly anything left of the home and the nature had taken over. The fields, once farmed, were now covered with wheat spikes. Me and my husband fell in love with the place and, although we were not yet sure of the purchase, for us it was already Podere Le Spighe, (Wheat Spikes Farm, in english language).
