Description of Vistabella 1An antique farmhouse and a large hayloft, both of which have been completely restored, make up part of a small hamlet known as Vistabella, because of the beautiful panorama that can be seen from the top of the hill. The owner lives in the main house and in the nearby hayloft there are two small apartments on the ground floor which lead onto a very large and panoramic furnished terrace. On the upper floor there is a third apartment, very large and delightful, which is accessed by a large courtyard and from which you can also access the owner's house, a very kind, welcoming couple that won't miss the opportunity to offer you a glass of vinsanto on your arrival. Peace and quiet. Shared with the guests of ACONE (6 apartments), is a very lovely and original oval shaped swimming pool (28x14) surrounded by a lovely furnished solarium, situated approx. 900 m below. The owner will organise a party celebrating the threshing of wheat 'Festa della battitura del grano', in the last week of July, using age-old machinery and tractors. The owner has a horse riding school with 16 horses and instructors and on request will organise a 2-day horse-riding trekking with booking in nearby farmholiday homes. The owner can also organise tours of cellars with tastings in the Chianti Rufina as well as horse-riding excursions and horse-riding lessons in the property (approx. 120 ha) and cooking lessons. Possibility to organise lunches and dinners (also on the day of arrival) with the typical products from the farm in the 13th century cellar. This apartment has an access onto a very large terrace with a very panoramic view of the countryside and equippped with table and deck-chairs for outdoor dining.
