Benvenuto a Spannocchia!
Casa del Fantino is a cozy house, located in the main courtyard of Castello di Spannocchia, a historic property on a nature preserve in the countryside of Siena. The traditional architecture of the property has been preserved while maintaining operations as an authentic organic working farm promoting sustainability and responsible land use. Guests renting a farmhouse at Spannocchia can enjoy the peace and privacy of rural Tuscany while having the opportunity to experience daily farm life and enjoy family-style meals with seasonal products from our gardens.
Casa del Fantino is located near the swimming pool and main Villa that houses the guest office, farm shop and dining room. The house has 2 bedrooms, one with an extra sleeping loft, a spacious bathroom with a full tub/shower and a washing machine, and a small reading nook perfect for curling up with a good book. The fireplace in the kitchen/dining area provides warmth and a cozy atmosphere on colder nights. In the warmer months, most guests eat outside under the attached pergola covered with white Trebbiano grapes. The kitchen is stocked with all the items needed to make and serve meals, and we welcome guests to order a harvest basket of organic vegetables from the Spannocchia garden or to try our own organic wine, olive oil, honey, or pasta when creating their own versions of a Tuscan dinner.
Guests have access to a shared swimming pool, studio and classroom space, full service guest office, and dining room open for dinner Monday - Friday, free internet wireless, and shop featuring farm products.
The property offers many hiking trails as well as special tours and programs such as cooking classes, language/arts classes, farm tours, and wine tastings.
