The location offers maximum privacy. Our guests enjoy the most beautiful sunsets here in the evening in peace.

Thanks to the electric cover, the water maintains a pleasant temperature.

The pool is open from May to October and, weather permitting, even from mid-April to mid-October.

Own wine and olive oil

We are too small to call it an agriturismo. Still, we produce quite a bit of organic wine and olive oil each year. Come taste it and experience the harvests. This experience will make your vacation unforgettable and special.

The vineyard

In the grounds above the pool of our luxury vacation apartments in Tuscany, you will find our beautiful vineyard, surrounded by the distinctive cypress trees of this region. Located on one of the last hills of the enchanting Chianti region, we grow mainly the Sangiovese grapes. Towards the end of September, when the grapes are ripe, we begin harvesting and making our delicious wine. Don’t miss this period and book your stay to experience this unique process up close. Picking the grapes together and experiencing wine production is always a fun and unforgettable experience, which we like to end by enjoying a few glasses of wine and the beautiful sunset.

The olive grove

Around the pool, is the olive grove with some 200 olive trees. Starting in late October, we are ready to harvest. A good harvest can yield up to 1,500 kg of olives, giving you about five weeks of pleasure. Nets are laid down under the trees and then hand picking begins. For every 500 kg, we go to the mill to have the olives pressed into delicious, green-yellow olive oil with a spicy aftertaste. This is typical of the oil from Tuscany. Ask for the oil and enjoy the delectable flavors it has to offer.

Supermarket and bakery

In Pieve al Toppo you will find 2 supermarkets:

  • Carrefour , an extensive and luxurious supermarket with a bakery, butcher’s shop and fresh fish
  • Di Più , a somewhat cheaper supermarket with a butcher’s shop

Fratelli Pierozzi is a fantastic (confectionery) bakery . For sweet and savory as well as delicious salads for lunch. You can pick up, but also eat all that delicious on the spot. Of course while enjoying a good cup of coffee.

 

Art and culture
Tuscany is one of the most beautiful regions of Italy with many medieval cities. It is rich in culture and art. Of course you can discover this on your own. Or do this with guide Mirjam or Ineke (Dutch, English, French, German and Italian speaking) who will take you on a tour for a half or full day. They will take you through the history and arts of Arezzo, Cortona, Montepulciano, Pienza, Siena, Firenze or the lesser known places that are also worth a visit like Monte San Savino, Lucignano, Anghiari and San Sepolcro.

We have documentation about this in the apartments.

 

Events
  • Carnival , at the end of February, people are dressed all over Castiglion Fibocchi in the most beautiful carnival costumes, comparable to what you can see in Venice.
  • Sarapino , is a medieval festival in Civitella in Val di Chiana at the beginning of June, in which the 4 teams of the quarters of the city with an Ape (motorized 3 wheeler with loading platform) and a person on the back with a lance, have to try to achieve the highest score on a disk. Very entertaining.
  • Antique market Arezzo , every first weekend of the month there is the antique market in Arezzo. This is a very well-known market in Italy and is well attended.
  • 1000 miglia , in May the tour of vintage cars goes from Brescia to Rome and back and often stops near Casa del Tramonto on the way there or back. Wonderful to stand along the road with a snack and a drink and to see this beauty.
  • Saracino , the same as Sarapino, but on horseback and in Arezzo at the beginning of September
  • Palio , the famous horse race in Siena, takes place twice a year. Early July and mid-August. A place on the square must be booked well in advance. Otherwise outside the square at every bar you can experience this spectacle through a TV. The horse wins, not the jockey. Be warned, it can get tough.
  • Sagras and Medieval Festivals, throughout the year there are various “eat” and/or spectacle parties that are dominated by the seasonal products of that moment. Think of wine, oil, mushrooms, wild boar, honey, the weeding bistecca Fiorentina (Tbone) etc. Italians then come together to eat, drink and ….. dance together!

This is a small selection of the events that are there. Of course, Corona has been adjusted or canceled. This can be viewed per period.
