Plunge into the wonderful colours of our Tuscan hills! This is really the feeling you have swimming in the pool of the ORTAGLIA. The exclusive design with a skimming side creates a waterfall with a panorama that gives you the sensation of diving into the Tuscan vineyards.

After a nice swim we suggest you to relax in the Jacuzzi or to go for a walk in the garden and enjoy a juicy fruit from the orchard. At our farmhouse you cannot get bored. Our guests can rent some mountain bikes and freely explore the countryside of TUSCANY. We will show to you some off-road itineraries if you want to discover enchanting views and keep yourself in good shape.

"Your hospitality is so warm and gracious. This has been a dream vacation with our friends from California to share the love we have for Ortaglia. You should be very proud of your son, Nicola, as he is so passionate about his love for the vino! He blessed us with two wonderful days, and we now know how to taste a glass of wine. We look forward to a visit from him when he is in California. Our Tuscan dinner will be unforgettable. I lost count of all my beverage glasses. The drive to Siena thru your countryside, and our visit to the Abbey was breath taking, every turn, even a wrong turn now and then, was a site so beloved. But the most special time, was the time spent laughing with all of you. Enjoying the conversation with the beauty of your home to surround us. Till we meet again."

"We love Italy ! We have been coming to this beautiful country for ten years, but Ortaglia is one of the best places we have been to. It is not just the splendour of the buildings and the beauty of the countryside (and the wonderful weather) but the open-hearted and friendly welcome we have received. Nothing has been too much trouble for you to make our time here so special."
