The Agriturismo Poderi Arcangelo is, in fact, a tiny little Tuscany village consisting of 4 independent farm houses. You choose! Each one of them has a long history and an individual character of its own. Yet they are all equally comfortable, and likable and each of them has its own swimming pool, by the way.
The heart of the whole complex, the Capezzano House, dates back to the end of the 16th century. A careful reconstruction in 2004 has left the original structure and harmony of the place intact. A good deal of comfort and welcoming spirit have been added, tough. All guests of the Agriturismo Poderi Arcangelo are welcomed here on their arrival. The special facilities for everyone to make use of are: a particularly lovable restaurant, which has been built in the former stables, a tasting room and sales of wines, olive oil and typical products (Vinsanto, Grappa, jams, organic fruits) that are produced on the Poderi Arcangelo organic farm and last but not least a romantic panoramic terrace.
A former hay-loft reconstructed according to ecologically benign building principles, using only natural and ecological materials. The use of magnetic correctors to neutralize the electromagnetic fields guarantee you a cleaned, energized environment, in which you can stock up on positive and natural energy. Furnished with natural eucalyptus wood and beds entirely hand made with studied joints instead of metallic parts and synthetic glues, the little eco house will complete your deep and undisturbed well-being at the Bed and Breakfast Agriturismo Poderi Arcangelo.
Farmers who lived in this house, say it was a monastery once, in which charitable monks gave refuge to poor people turned away by the nearby village. Surrounded by vineyards and olive trees, this house is suitable for groups of friends or families who want to spend a relaxed Tuscany vacation together. On the first floor there are 9 bedrooms with private baths and original furniture from the late 18th century and 2 fully equipped kitchens.
