Fattoria la Torre

We spent our vacation lounging about the Fattoria la Torre. A Fattoria in Italy is a farm. Our farm produced wine and olive oil.  Not just any old wine either but Esse, certified as the best Syrah in Italy and the house red was pretty good too!

The Fattoria has 10 apartments to let for any stay over 1 week.  If you are coming for a shorter stay, the hotel has 10 lovely modern rooms with a clean Scandinavian design. The reception is open from 8 am to 7 pm and offers concierge services and wine tastings. If you are thinking about taking a romantic drive in the country, order a picnic basket the day before and pick it up after breakfast.

The hotel restaurant or Trattoria offers authentic Tuscan cuisine. I tasted the most amazing chick pea soup with porcini mushrooms, roasted pork loin and lamb and of course their pasta was freshly made, daily. They subscribe to the slow food movement and the time and love they put into their dishes makes you feel at home. Be sure to make reservations for dinner, the small restaurant fills up quickly and even though the staff will do magic tricks to make a table appear from nowhere, they do have some limitations.
