Organic farm holiday resort
After the required three years conversion period, we finally became an organic farm. This means that not only we use only organic fertilizers and feed but also that the 33 hectares of our farm are a healthy environment where you can lay down on the grass, touch plants, wild flowers or olive tree branches without risking the contact with harmful products.
What do we produce? Olive oil, vegetables for our restaurant, tomatoes for our tomato sauce, fruit for our jams, hay for the nearby farms, wine grapes, tasty Vin Santo, and delicious honey.
The Italian green and luxuriant countryside beauty, the harmonious hills, have made farm vacations in Florence one of the most desired.
Tuscany, in particular, offers this kind of farm vacations together with the possibility to visit some of the most beautiful art towns in the world, such as Florence, Sienna, Pisa, Rome, Venice, and to visit some of the most well known tourist seaside and mountain resorts.
Le Mandrie di Ripalta, near the Montespertoli village, a few kilometers away from Florence, is one of the most qualified and cosy farm houses, managed with great traditional experience and courtesy directly by its owner, Mr.Carlo Cubattoli.
