Barbialla Nuova ia a Chic Retreat that sits in the heart of Tuscany and has been in Guido Manfredi Rasponi's family for hundreds of years. When he graduated from university in 2003 he decided to transform the organic farm into an eco-sensitive agriturismo with self-catering apartments with the help of a group of friends. From the start, the concept relied on the natural beauty of the place (500 hectares of completely organic woodlands and pastures) and the laid-back nature of the hosts to charm their guests. Ten years later many things have changed, but the spirit of Barbialla remains the same.  Solar panels, filtered water and wood burning furnaces have been added and the estate is still surrounded by 1200 acres of completely organic land. The farm shop sells local and organic products including their own Chianina beef, honey and olive oil.

Activities

Barbialla Nuova is in the heart of Tuscany, making it the perfect base to visit some of Italy's loveliest villages, towns and cities including Siena, Pisa or Florence, not to mention the closer towns of Volterra and San Gimignano.  Tuscany is full to the brim of wonderful festivals and celebrations throughout the year and Guido and his team will happily recommend when and where to go. Don't forget that the focus in Autumn is the San Miniato white truffles as it is one of the few areas in the world where this rare and precious tuber is found.  Golf and horse riding can be arranged nearby and guests can practice their fly fishing on the lake and try their luck at catching black bass.  There are 15 miles of signposted paths for walking and mountain biking to suit every level. Each of the houses has a pool, though Doderi's is the only full size one. Brentina has a large pool  (10 x 5 m) and Le Trosce has a plunge pool (2 x 3 m). Brentina is connected to Wi-fi: this service has to be added to Brentina Sud, Brentina Est, Brentina Ovest and Brentina Ovile.

Dining

All of the apartments at Barbialla Nuova are self catering, but guests can find the superior Chianina meat at the store along with fresh bread and other homemade products. Most importantly, the Barbialla Nuova estate is home to the rare Tuber Magnatum Pico, the famous White Truffle of San Miniato. Guests can join the truffle hunters out on a dig and buy the prized white fungus and homemade truffle butter in the store.
