Limonaia is located close to Lucignano, in the heart of Tuscany, and is the ideal destination for a relaxing holiday. It's just a few kilometres from Arezzo, Siena and Florence, and Umbria is nearby as well. The house was built just recently, but is fully furnished in the traditional Tuscan style. There is no TV, so you have plenty of time to enjoy a good book and glass of Tuscan wine. The house is surrounded by a large garden with fruit trees, a swimming pool, a garden hut and a barbecue grill and looks out across the beautiful Tuscan hills. This is a family-run estate and the owners are happy to receive guests at any time of year. It's the perfect place for a quiet country holiday and makes a good base for excursions to art destinations and for hikes in the surrounding nature. The homeowner organizes olive tastings on request from their own organic olive grove. And on request it is also possible to do a cooking class to learn how to make typical Italian dishes.
All you can see in the Agriturismo is the result of the work of the Sacchi's family. We have started the activity some years ago, always maintaining the same ideas and methods.
In our Agriturismo you have the opportunity to taste our products, to know the original savours of Tuscany.
We have two big gardens, one where the Agriturismo stands, and an other not far from here. There, we have our 23 chickens, one goose and 2 ducks, which live free and happy, eating only grass and corn, wheat, soy and some earthworms that they find around.
Every day I take about 15 eggs from my hens to make my homemade cakes or my tagliatelle.
OUR OLIO EXTRA VERGINE DI OLIVA
Olive oil is, together with wine, what makes our region so famous throughout Italy and abroad. It is obtained from the olive tree, native to the Mediterranean basin and our particular variety, called Extra-virgin, is of higher quality, coming just from virgin oil production, it is produced by the use of mechanical means only, with no chemical treatment.
Our olive oil is obtained from trees in the fields of “Maestà Rotta\" in Lucignano and “San Poerino\" in Monte San Savino. It is an Extra-virgin oil of excellent quality, that maintains high level of the nutrients of the olive.
Ask Claudia for a tasting with some bruschette, in the way it is usually eaten here.
We directly produce the honey you find at the Agriturismo, without addition of preservatives, flavorings or coloring. It smells of different flowers in the several varieties, depending on the fields where we put the beehives and the period of the year. In our garden, they are surrounded by the vineyard and the orchard.
You cannot miss taking the opportunity to try the match between honey and Tuscan cheese, with the honey complementing the salty nature of cheese, one of the best specialty of our region. You can have it served as tasting in the Agriturismo.
