Our guests can rely on our daily bread service. All kinds of bread and sweet rolls can be ordered at the reception for delivery the next morning.
Friendly pizza evening
The remains of an authentic wood oven were found when the houses were restored. The oven has been fully rebuilt and is used sometimes in the summer for a pizza evening. The guests on the estate are invited to pull up a chair around tables set up in the street of the “borgo” in the neighbourhood of the oven! Salute!
On Thursday evening, when there is sufficient interest of the guests, we can organize a wine tasting on the property in a pleasant setting beneath a pergola. A local sommelier will present a selection of 6 high quality wines (Vernaccia, Chianti Classico Riserva, Vino Nobilo, Brunello, …) (in English). During his interesting presentation, you can enjoy some typical fine Tuscan meats and pecorino cheeses, together with bruschetta’s.
Cook on demand
Upon request, you can call on the services of an exceptional local female cook for your group (minimum 10 persons) to prepare a typical Tuscan dinner. These dishes will be served at the tables beneath the common pergola (near the kitchen on the property). Truly a recommendation!
Outdoor eating area
Each unit has a private garden where guests can enjoy meals in peace. Garden furniture is provided. Some of the houses also have a private terrace beneath a pergola. A number of pleasant little eating areas or rest areas with the necessary facilities have also been created on the estate for the use of guests.
The beautifully designed and maintained garden around the buildings of the “borgo Gagnoni” is surrounded by woods and farmland that also belongs to the estate. The footpaths through the estate make the woods and nature reserve accessible for guests. The garden is designed to ensure peace and tranquillity in a different spot at any time of day to read or simply relax.

The swimming pool includes a shallow end where children can play, with a built-in jacuzzi, with 4 seats to relax with back and leg massage, and a larger part for swimming.
