The weather in Tuscany
The weather in Tuscany is generally very pleasant. Even during the winter months, the sun comes out, the coats can come off, and you can have an espresso sitting outside La Cantina. Some weather apps don’t always give a realistic picture of the weather in this area. Thanks to a difference in altitude, you need to wait and see how correct they are. We take it day by day and prefer to just enjoy it…
Agriturismo Anna-Rosa boasts a lovely swimming pool of 14 by 7 metres. The depth is a maximum of 1.35 metres. Diving is not allowed. From the pool there is a beautiful and stunning, panoramic view. There are sunbeds (2 per apartment) by the pool.
The swimming pool is open from May to October. If the weather permits, it may open sooner or close later in the season. The swimming pool is not heated and there is no supervision at the pool.
Food and drink
A holiday in Italy means enjoying good food and drink. To make your holiday even greater, on some nights a week you can join our pasta evening or to join our tasting on the communal terrace. (fee applies)
We don’t serve breakfast, but we do have a bread service from our local bakery. And if you are lucky with fresh eggs from our own chickens… Fresh bread and eggs every day… isn’t that delicious?
Agriturismo and our products
Anna-Rosa is an agriturismo, a farm estate that combines the agricultural business with tourist accommodation. Situated in the Agriturismo Anna-Rosa grounds (around 14 hectares in size) you will find a farmhouse, our private house and the swimming pool, olive groves and a small vineyard.
The most important agricultural activity of our agriturismo is olive oil production. Our olive groves contain various types of olives: Frantoiano, Leccino, Moraiolo, Maurino and Pendolino. These types produce a lot of good oil. The next olive harvest will take place in October / November 2023. After the harvest, the olives are cleaned as soon as possible and then pressed in a nearby communal frantoio (press). The sooner the olives are pressed after being harvested, the better the quality. Next, the olive oil is bottled and labelled. This is high-quality olive oil, obtained from the first so-called cold pressing.
In our small vineyard, we mainly grow Sangiovese grapes. From grape till bottle….
We round up our vineyard with surrounding farmers. This is how we get our own wine with label.
The driveway to the farm runs through olive trees and grapevines. Next to the farm are two new olive groves. A little further on lies our biggest olive grove and wood. You can take a walk across the estate, but we are also happy to give you a brief tour.
We love pets, but after careful consideration, we have decided not to allow pets at Anna-Rosa.
