The woods surrounding the estate (131.2 ha) provide excellent privacy and are the ideal place for outdoor walks and hikes. In the right seasons it is also easy to come across mushrooms and truffles, as well as animals typical of the Tuscan countryside.<br/> Arable land (27.1 ha) is suitable for a wide variety of crops, but the area is famed for the production of excellent wines and the property falls entirely within the <b>Chianti Colli Senesi DOCG</b> production zone. An olive grove (2.7 ha), managed with rigorous organic methods, makes it possible to produce excellent extra virgin olive oil every year.<br/> A <b>private lake</b> (1,200 sqm), located south of the hamlet, allows the garden and crops to be irrigated when needed.<br/><br/> Finally, all around the buildings stretches the <b>9,000-sqm garden</b> on which are typical plants of the area and exotic-looking palm trees that frame the beautiful <b>16 × 8 m swimming pool</b> surrounded by a terracotta solarium with umbrellas and deck chairs.
