"Time for Harvesting"
The producers are expecting a great vintage because the intense spring heat, followed by a termic excursion in July with temperatures below the average seasonal level, and the sweltering weeks of August let the grape sugar concentrate prematurely. Consequently some grape varieties matured a little bit earlier than foreseen, signalling the beginning of the Harvest.
We suggest to all our Guests who will spend their holidays with us in September to visit one or more Viticultural and Winegrower sites, for which we can make reservations on-line, in order to have a direct experience of the Harvest.
Furthermore you will have the chance to make beautiful excursions to Siena and Monteriggioni, the Elba Island, Firenze, Volterra and San Gimignano, with travel agency departing directly from the Hotel.

Vada; “A Roman ship between the bathers
Wrecks are a passion to every diver. The ancient wrecks are a dream to graverobbers of the sea and treasure hunters. This time the wreck stranded at few meters from the beach; a roman ship, from the I or II century a.C. was discovered by a bronzesmith of Florence, Daniele Ugolini, while he was bathing. With his diving mask he went to check that dark and sinuous shape; the floor is about four meters, with light sand and clear water. In front of his eyes he recognized the skeleton of a twenty meters ship, large seven.
