Tenuta De Fanti
It all began in 2001 when the De Fanti family: Filiberto, his wife Anna Maria, and the three children, Marco, Veronica and Andrea, left Verona to come to Tuscany and felt in love with this unique territory as to start with an appealing, new adventure.
This is how De Fanti Estate started, and over times has maintained the features of a small farming hamlet.
Located in the district of Bibbona on the hills near theTyrrhenian coast, the Estate occupies an area of about 4 hectares with vineyards, olive groves and a large park-garden that surrounds the Farmhouse, and with a stunning panorama of priceless beauty across the hills reveals a magnificent profile over the countryside and down to the coast.
The microclimate and other features of this territory have allowed us to create a little corner of paradise, an oasis of tranquility much appreciated by those whoseek the typical Tuscan environment, almost forgotten nowadays.
The unique hilly soil is ideal for the cultivation of vines, and producing wine from our own vineyard became our passion. The result is a niche production of Merlot and Trebbiano. Our wines and our extra virgin olive oil are the purest expression of this great quality.
The 2 ancient homesteads, surrounded by a big garden, have been tastefully renovated giving several nice apartments of different sizes: two, four and six bed places.
All the houses are independent and heating is supplied.
Attentively furnished in typical Tuscan style each dwelling has kitchen with a typical stone sink.
Garden furniture is provided outside. Each apartment has a lovely front door, private corner of garden, and on the firstfloor a terrace offer an enchanting view, like no other, to the Etruscan coast and the Tyrrhenian Sea.
Of course, each apartment has access to the common-use swimming pool.
The Farmhouses' services and activities:
- A fine swimming pool where the water is treated with salt rather than chemicals. Salt does not damage the skin, but leaves behind a feeling of pleasant softness as it is perfect for the human skin.
- Barbecue. A cheery corner with barbecues is available for lots of grill lovers.
- A wide park surrounding the property offers spacious and scenic areas for a short escape from chaos.
- Satellite TV
