Breathe the true Tuscany and enrich yourself emotionally and spiritually. Villa Ferraia is designed to celebrate the relationship between man and nature in the pursuit of otium, as understood in ancient Rome.
Otium, true leisure, not intended as idle, but as activities that nourish the soul.
Our idea in 1995, was to create a place of sublime beauty and bring together all our passions. From that day we have worked to involve our guests in the multiplicity that is often hidden from the outside world.
The Villa already existed back in 1204, when it became part of the Republic of Siena. This particularly beautiful area to the south of the city of Siena is home to the most spectacular landscapes and biological diversity and is surrounded by wooded hills and valleys with breath-taking views.
Ideal for exploring Tuscany from an unusual and reserved perspective, it is perfect for holidays with friends, family reunions or weddings, astronomy club meetings, yoga sessions or incentive groups for managers that need to recharge their batteries with team building sessions, small meetings or original events.
Villa Ferraia is composed by three adjoining buildings where the rooms are located. Often, they can be accessed by cosy lounges where guests can meet on comfortable sofas to read, listen to music or sample a fine Tuscan wine. Guests of the original building are treated to tasteful interiors and respect for materials: terracotta tiles, wooden beams, wrought iron, and great care with color combinations. The 14 rooms in the villa that can accommodate 28 people, are large (15-20 m²), bright and furnished with period furniture.
Castello di Tocchi is a medieval village dating from 1100. Despite being seriously involved by the wars between Florence and Siena, its medieval walls and the magnificent arched entrance have remained intact and still exude a certain antique charm. The views of the surrounding area take in mixed woodlands made up of oaks chestnuts and cork trees, and rolling hills dominated by the peak of Monte Amiata.
A holiday at Castello di Tocchi means having a base amongst the green Tuscan hills, a peaceful apartment where in the evenings you can relax in absolute tranquillity after spending your days exploring the numerous walks and pathways winding through the woods, following in the antique tracks of the medieval roads which connected Siena with the sea, or alternatively you can take part in a variety of activities organised with the help of our staff.
Guests can participate in a series of guided tours of any chosen towns, discover the local producers and the characteristic products they have to offer, take part in a cooking course run in the communal large room in the centre of the village or go horse riding (for those with experience).
The strategic position of the village means that it is easy to visit centres of historical and artistic interest such as Siena, Florence, Montalcino, Buonconvento, The Abbey of San Galgano, Pienza, Monteoliveto Maggiore or take a trip to the seaside, only 40 km away.
The apartments in the medieval village have been carefully restored with due regard to their historic character, keeping the stone walls intact.
Each apartment has been tastefully furnished and has all the comforts one would expect; kitchen, bathroom with shower and hairdryers, cosy living room with a log fire for intimate evenings or for getting together with friends
At Castello di Tocchi you can enjoy a relaxing stay. It is entirely up to you when and if you wish to see the cities or visit the seaside.
ACTIVITIES AND SURROUNDINGS
Villa Ferraia, in every season provides the possibility for guests to take care of their own well-being with a wide variety of different activities, for those who let themselves be conquered by the profound value of ancient Roman otium.
The same activity can provide different sensations depending on the season. Riding in a warm and flowery spring meadow is a completely different experience to a placid walk among the hills to admire the autumn foliage or on a fresh, silent winter afternoon as a prelude to a glass of wine in front of a cosy fire.
In every season we can provide our guests with emotions and experiences that can rejuvenate the physique like trekking and horse-riding, or stimulate the senses like food and wine tasting or relaxation, or nourish the intellect like artistic or cultural excursions, cookery or language courses, or simply enjoy your time reading, playing, philosophising or exchanging dreams and ideas.
To discover everything this place has to offer you can find the activities that reflect your interests and passions in relation to the period you wish to come and stay with us.
Free from chemical substances and cultural practices that could upset its natural balance our organic vegetable garden is our pride and joy and our greenhouse makes it possible to extend this privilege even in the winter months.
