The private grounds reserved for guests are approximately 3000 m², but the entire farm is accessible.

Organic farm: The house is located in the center of an organic farm of more than 25 acres. All products are available at special prices for guests. Rosemary and herbs, 120 fruit trees, chile peppers, vegetables can be harvested by guests with the assistance of the owners. From these basic elements Nine Lobo manufactures and markets Spirit of Habanero (pepper grappa), Nectar Habanero (hot pepper oil), honey, chili powder and other specialties. The farm has a store in town, 'l'Ambasciata', where you can find quality products from the region and beyond, delivered directly from farms. On the farm you can eat typical American brunch, chili specialties, as well as seasonal dishes made with local products.

Equestrian Club: Nine del Lobo is also home to Rancho Comancho, a horse-riding club founded over twenty years ago in the Apuan mountains. We train horses following the philosophy of the great Monty Roberts, 'The man who listens to horses'. We give riding lessons and there are special offers to those who come on vacation with their own horse. We board horses both in paddocks and stalls. Available: tackroom, club house, arena, round training paddock. We are part of Libertas Associaton, recognized by the CONI. We organize guided tours for guests with horses.

Other activities: We organize full immersion English holidays, with mother tongue teachers, tailored to customer needs. We organize camps for children aged 11 to 13 years and youngsters aged 14 to 17. We organize team building courses using softair and riding as a means of socialization and teamwork. Nine Lobo is home to the Traveler's Library of Sergio Stocchi, with over 400 hand made books and hundreds of others in different languages. We organize: theme nights, gardening courses and nature days for elementary school children.
