The agriturismo Borgognano Farm House is a farm of 25 hectares, consisting of olive groves, grapevines, fruit trees such as cherries, peaches, apricots, plums, pears, apples, figs and persimmons, and arable land cultivated with wheat, fodder for livestock and sunflowers.

Within the farm lies the Podere with two hectares of green park, situated on a hill and surrounded by green meadows, fields and woods. Every afternoon a slight breeze rises to cool even the hottest days.

Its location, far from roads, making it a unique and enchanting setting where you can relax together and enjoy the unspoiled beauty of the place. Borgognano Farm House, certainly, is a structure created for nature lovers.

 

Montioni Park

The Azienda Agrituristica Borgognano Holiday Farm House is located in Tuscany, bordering the Parco di Montioni - Montioni Park, one of the most pristine natural reserves of the Maremma. The park has over 7000 hectares of scrub and numerous historical sites including: the Tower of Pievaccia, mills, blast furnaces, and alum mines and spas of Elisa Baciocchi, sister of Napoleon Bonaparte.

The ancient paths of the park are signposted for hiking, mountain bike or horse-riding and take you through oak, cork-oak, holm-oak and arbatri woodland where you can discover the many species of animals that live there; such as wild boar, fallow and roe deer, porcupines, hedgehogs, foxes, hawks, owls and turtles.

The park is beautiful in all seasons, and acquires a particular charm in the spring and autumn. In spring, everything is green and wild fruit trees and hawthorns are filled with white flowers, the yellow gorse spread their fragrance everywhere, turtles and hedgehogs come out of hibernation, whilst wild boar and deer roam with their children and move towards greener pastures. In autumn, however, everything is colored by an intense and brilliant yellow rust and the collection of mushrooms becomes a fun pastime.
