The Tartuchino farm is surrounded by a beautiful hilly countryside, dotted with olive groves, woods and cultivated fields. It is located on top of a hill, where the view spans from the Argentario to the mountains.
In ancient times these lands were inhabited and cultivated by the Etruscans: the remains of a farm from that period were found just few meters away from Casetta Tartuchino, while the nearby woods hold an etruscan necropolis dating back to the VI century BC. Roman remains are also found near the hot springs of Saturnia, already in those times they were a popular destination.
Medieval and renaissance towns are found all around the countryside. They make for fascinating strolls though picturesque alleys and interesting architecture. They are also good shopping destinations for artisanal products and cuisine.
Over the years farmers employed by landowning families cultivated these lands which are difficult to tame: the nature here is proud, different from the softer countryside that lines the coast.
Casetta Tartuchino farm stay has a living room with a TV and a fireplace, to keep you warm when the winter days get shorter. To ensure all the guests have a peaceful stay, the use of the kitchen is reserved for the groups that rent the entire house.
Outside, there is a patio overlooking the surrounding hills, where you can relax or have your meals using the grill in the garden. From tthe “belvedere” you can conteplate the view. The changing colours of the sky and fields around the house are enchanting.
In the summer you can enjoy a refeshing swim in the private pool of the Tartuchino Farm. It is found on top of a small hill and surrounded by a pleasant view.
We produce excellent Tuscan extra virgin oil (IGP) and have built a solar power farm in a secluded field. We also joined a project for the reproduction of the Olivone di Fibbianello, which is a centenary olive tree that has come to be a symbol of this area. Some small olive trees, children of the Olivone, are right in front of Casetta Tartuchino.
