“La Fattoria di Colleoli”, an ancient estate dating back to the XVII century, where the farmers used to live in the old times, stands, surrounded by the luscious vegetation of the Tuscan hills, a stone’s throw from famous artistic cities such as Pisa, Florence, Volterra, San Miniato, Siena and San Gimignano.
The four properties, named Il Cerretello, Il Sole, Il Fienile and Il Botraccio, scattered around the grounds of the “Colleoli” farm, are surrounded by a green park, with two large swimming pools, offering the farm’s guests a chance to spend their days in utter relaxation…
The estate is set in about 200 hectares of land, and its main asset are the large olive groves that produce superior extra-virgin olive oil, known since 1865 for its excellent yield as proven by lots of international medals and awards. In the old times, the name Colleoli meant “Colle degli Olivi”, olive hill.
On the background of this uncontaminated area with magnificent views on the valley, just 2 km from the Farm, the guests can visit the old town of Palaia and its ancient castle, half of which belonged to the Bishops of Lucca, and half to a local aristocratic family.
AGRITURISMO FATTORIA DI COLLEOLI
Fattoria di Colleoli is a perfect place for families with children.
It has large green areas with a small playground and a swimming pool, where children are free to romp around without any danger.
It is also ideal for people who do not want to stay away from their best friends:
“their dogs or cats”. Pets are welcome!
Very close to the property, a few nature trails offer lovely walks to enjoy the fine sights that surround the area.
Optionally, the farm can arrange wine tastings a few miles from the farm, as well as horse riding, and Vespa tours.
In summer, the farm can welcome its guests with an evening tour of the beautiful old city of Palaia, its ART, CULTURE, SIGHTS, VILLAS and CASTLES, completed by a tasting of local produce, as well as food festivals or village feasts.
In winter… they can’t miss the Truffle Festival in San Miniato, and lots more…
