KNOW BEFORE YOU GO
Surrounded by olive and fruit trees, where you can pick your own cherries and plums in season, Carbonaia is a character filled 15th century Tuscan farmhouse with spectacular views, located just 3km from the picturesque town of Vinci and the former home of Leonardo da Vinci, now a museum. The family run estate specialises in the production of olive oil, Chianti wines, jams and honey and pride themselves on using only organic farming techniques. In November, there are special weekends available when you can join in the fun of the olive harvest and watch the traditional first cold pressing of the olives.
The position of Carbonaia offers the opportunity to enjoy a wide variety of holiday experiences with the main art cities of Tuscany, beaches and many sporting opportunities being so accessible. Florence and Pisa can be reached in under an hour, as can the beaches around Viareggio if you fancy a day at the seaside. Additionally, for families with children upwards of 9 years old, canyoning, caving and mountain biking activities can be organised.
The estate is comprised of seven comfortable apartments all with satellite TV, wi-fi internet and central heating. Prized mineral water from nearby Romito spring flows from the taps of Carbonaia and each apartment has its own furnished garden areas whilst interiors are comfortably furnished and finished in a typical Tuscan style, with cotto floors, beamed ceilings and whitewashed walls.
The closest basic shop, selling a little bit of everything including its famous home baked bread, is about 1km from the property and the town of Vinci with all facilities is 3km. A pizza night, where guests can join in to make home baked pizzas, is held every week in the summer months.
