at. As one of the experiences of this holiday we want our guests to explore the local cuisine. We buy our food fresh and local. All your and your babies meals are included in the price whether we eat in or out. Here in the villa we have our private chef but we also enjoy lunch out in local winery and also in local family owned restaurant. Italian food is well known all around the world and we are confident to say it is the one of the most popular. Who doesn’t like to indulge in delicious pasta plate or gelato?
There are 20 regions in Italy and every one of them have their typical dishes and signature foods. Big part of Tuscan cuisine are cheese and meats, all kinds of them. Salami and prosciutto, pecorino and stracchino…and you almost have learned Italian! And of course all the fresh olive oil and wine produced locally. Make sure you participate in our cooking class where real Italian mamma will teach us to make various pasta dishes, tiramisu and other classics so you can continue in your own kitchen and surprise your loved ones at home. Don’t forget the wine, it’s also included. There is no denial, some days it’s the juice that keeps us going. Imagine evening: you and other moms sharing your baby stories by glass or two. And we know that can go on for a while…
Don’t be confused, we do yoga here but we also like to enjoy ourselves and eat. At the end we are in Italy! We believe that everything needs to be in balance. The key is good ingredients. Another truth is Italian cuisine tastes as good with or without meat and we are happy to accommodate any dietary requirements and if you have any allergies please let us know on the booking form.

This is where we spend most of the time. The pool is guarded by fence so the little ones can’t wonder in there by themselves and is surrounded by plenty of sun beds, towels and umbrellas. We have also free laundry facility here, so you don’t run short on little explorers clothes. Ahh..we can’t wait to show you “la dolce vita”!
ou! At the end of the day it all comes down to you. Yes, you are mother and wife at home but you are also woman and you need to feel like one. It’s hard, I know. Specially if you are first time mom. There are days when you realize it’s already afternoon but you are still in you pajamas and how we are waiting for our husbands day off to have a little time for ourselves. Here we always have baby sitting available during all morning activities, so you can do yoga, go for morning swim, have breakfast or just have a shower without someone knocking on a shower door. We offer also babysitting while you are getting your treatment or massage you choose. We also invite you to try mandala coloring in villa, we have plenty of books and some moms swear by this method. It is alternative to meditation just more creative. Tuscany is also know as place with many natural hot springs, our Jacuzzi bathtub is filled with sulfurous water from local source, It has many health benefits. Also please take advantage of our free face mask service, go to the SPA and kindly ask Rita to apply it for you, ideally after sauna. Then relax in lounge chairs with cup of detoxing tee. I admire Italian women, they always look so good and effortless. In Italian family a woman is the center and everybody looks up to her. She is the rock of the family. But to take care of everybody else, firstly she needs to take care of herself.
