Activities in the Agriturismo and in the surrounding areas

Gastronomy, nature, tradition and much more

Montespertoli offers the perfect mix of relax, nature, food, art, history and outdoor activities. The village is also the strategic starting point for the exploration of the highlights of Tuscany.

Old villages, parish churches and castles lie between vineyards, olive trees and woods. Wine is the beating heart of this territory. You can visit the Wine Museum - interesting also for kids - and the “Mostra del Chianti” (Wine Festival) that takes place between the end of May and beginning of June. There are a lot of wineries that offer guided tours of their cellars and wine tastings. Don’t miss the various events mixing food, wine, music and local traditions, like the Veglie sull’Aia and la Madia dei Sapori.

Montespertoli is also known for the Amedeo Bassi Museum and the Sacred Art Museum located in the old church of San Piero in Mercato.

The territory is perfect for true nature lovers that enjoy hiking or simply walking while discovering castles, Roman and medieval ruins.

What to do in the Agriturismo

For those who love outdoor activities, there are plenty of opportunities. First of all, the 2.5 kilometer long nature trail inside the Agriturismo is rich in picnic areas.

The farmhouse offers mountain bikes, a soccer field, an archery field, a tennis table and two playgrounds.

Last but not least the beautiful swimming pool (15 x 8 meters, open from April to October) and a smaller one with hydromassage. Both are surrounded by the olive trees and have an incredible view over the Tuscan hills.

The Staff organizes weekly special activities for the Guests:

Pizza
On Thursday afternoon, we organize a pizza dinner. With the help of our chef Enrico, both kids and adults can participate and prepare their own pizza and cook it in a traditional wood oven.

Green activities for kids
Every Tuesday, weather permitting, we organize some educational and fun activities for kids in our vegetable garden with the expert Matteo.

Cooking class
It is possible to be part of a cooking class followed by dinner or lunch together with our chef Enrico at our restaurant.

Every Monday you have the chance to taste three of the wines produced by our farm inside the cellar with Giulio. For those who are interested, there is the possibility of having a walk among the vineyards.

We created a natural trail in our Agriturismo to offer you a pleasant 2.5 kilometer-long walk lasting 1 hour approx. Buon cammino, at the discovery of our countryside!

Itineraries

Towards the discovery of four villages: Montalbino, Il Pino e Montegufoni, which tell the story and the roots of Montespertoli through the heritage of past generations.
We suggest four itineraries that have been designed by the historian and author Paolo Gennai to discover, walk and communicate with our territory from an usual point of view: that one of the water!

The first itinerary “Montalbino, Fonte di Mensole and Poderaccio” is within walking distance from our farmhouse.
