The Tuscany area boasts a history so rich that it has greatly influenced human history. The fine arts, politics, or religion, Tuscany offers such a rich culture that it is nearly impossible for any visitor to Tuscany to ignore it.
It is also an area known for picturesque landscapes, many cities famous for its art museums. The top attractions of Florence, Siena, San Gimignano, Castellina, Radda, Volterra, Monteriggioni, and Colle Val D’Elsa are all within easy reach from the Fattoria L’Ottavo. To get there you will pass dozens of vineyards and lots of fabulous restaurants with excellent food and wines. L’Ottavo is only a 20 minute drive from Greve in Chianti, with its restaurants, cafes and shops and a supermarket.
You’ll need a car to reach most of Chianti’s places, but if you feel like venturing further afield, within a 2 hours drive you’ll find beaches, typical beautiful seaside resorts, and the peaks of the snow-covered Apennine mountains. And if you’re into golf, equitation or interested in watching wild animals with a local hunter, these activities – and more – can easily be organized.
