In the heart of the charming Tuscan countryside you can enjoy the benefits of outdoor life as well as some interesting local resources, such as unforgettable landscapes and incomparable historical and cultural insights. In Val di Cornia, Località Cafaggio lies “Casa Vacanze Ribocchi“, the result of a careful restoration of an early 1900 farmhouse, carried out in a rustic Tuscan style, but very elegantly and well appointed.
The home exterior is in stone cladding and has been carefully sand-blasted, with a large porch with arches and original ancient brick floor. On the garden side there’s a large brick and wrought iron external staircase. The windows are large framed and bright, and made from precious chestnut wood.
The farmhouse is surrounded by olive trees and vineyards, and the area is reknown for excellent wine and virgin olive oil, thanks mainly to the blessed climate.
The location was called by the Etruscans “The Valley of the Sun”, as it’s surrounded to the east by picturesque olive tree covered hills and Mediterranean vegetation. Looking west, the coast boasts neverending beaches and unpolluted waters. It’s ideal for children as the water is crystal clear and shallow so you can swim safely in most places. This is an ideal holiday for those who love nature, walking or cycling, fresh and pollution-free air, good food & wine and great olive oil.
