Welcome to the Agriturismo Gli Etruschi
We arrive at the large gate ofAgriturismo Gli Etruschi after a drive through the tranquil countryside that lies between Venturina Terme and Piombino. The air is immediately fresh and clean – a good omen for outdoor enthusiasts. It’s early March and although spring hasn’t fully bloomed, one can imagine the awakening of nature in the coming weeks – a sight not to be missed.
Our meeting with Luisella in her office is warm and inviting. Her genuine smile and evident passion for her work give a clear indication of the care and dedication that goes into making this agriturismo a prime location for a sporting holiday in Tuscany.”
Let’s start by asking you to describe the property, this beautiful farmhouse nestled in the Tuscan countryside…
“Our farmhouse is situated in the municipality of Piombino, just a few kilometres from the renownedGulf of Baratti. We offers glamping tents with a private outdoor hot tub, along with studios, one-bedroom and two-bedroom apartments.”
“The studios boasting a surface area of 25 square meters come equipped with a kitchen, private garden, and bathroom. The one-bedroom apartments are more spacious at 45 square meters, featuring a kitchen, a bathroom, and an outdoor veranda. Our two-bedroom apartments vary in type but are all equipped with a kitchen, two bedrooms, and a generous living room.”
“In terms of glamping tents, we offer three variations: Large, suitable for two adults and three children, featuring a loft area with a bedroom, kitchen, and private bathroom; Medium, designed for two adults and two children, with a loft area containing a bedroom, kitchen, and private bathroom; and finally,the Small, perfect for two adults, comes equipped with a private bathroom, kitchen, and hot tub.”
Luisella escorts us to take in the sight of the newly-established, picturesque glamping tents, immediately enticing us to stay and welcome the spring while enjoying a glass of red wine in the outdoor hot tub on the patio. But let’s stay on track…
From farm to table
Tell us about the locally sourced breakfasts and themed dinners, which we’ve heard are truly special…
“The Gli Etruschi farmhouse proudly holds organic certification, signifying our unwavering dedication to cultivating crops like forage, wheat, sunflowers, olives, grapes, and vegetables without resorting to chemicals harmful to human health and the environment.
Our buffet breakfast offers a feast of organic jams, freshly baked cakes made with our flour, freshly sliced meats and cheeses, seasonal fruit, and much more. We’ve curated our breakfast to provide our adventurous guests with the necessary energy for exploring the Val di Cornia through activities such as trekking, mountain biking, e-biking, and water sports in the beautiful waters of Baratti and nearby beaches.”
The communal dinners are a memorable experience. Three times a week, we orchestrate moments of camaraderie and conviviality, focused on togetherness and building connections: there’s the day dedicated to wood-fired pizza, freshly baked on-site, the meat grill evening supplemented by appetizers, mains, and vegetables, and the evening of grilled fish and cacciucco,again accompanied by appetizers, main courses, and side dishes. We directly source the majority of our food from our land, carefully choosing the rest based on its provenance.“
Farm holidays for children and families
What are the educational experiences that children (and adults too) can participate in on your farm?
We have a lot in store for families choosing to book a holiday at the Agriturismo Gli Etruschi. We offer their children access to our educational farm, where they can interact with our goats, cows, horses, peacocks, geese, chickens, rabbits, and donkeys, while experiencing the beauty of nature and country life. With a bit of luck, they might even witness the birth of a little calf or a puppy from one of the other animals. Additionally, children can have fun in our green spaces, in the swimming pool, and with the games available to them.
We also offer workshops and educational activities for the whole family. We’ve always upheld the beauty of nature and animals, which is why we’ve introduced beehives into our facility, allowing children to participate in our educational workshops. These workshops are specifically designed to educate children about the care, observation, and history of bees, with the invaluable collaboration of our expert beekeeper. Afterwards, we offer a tasty snack and a guided visit with direct contact with all the animals present on the farm.
Holidays for everyone all year round
What is the best season to stay with you? For what types of people would you recommend booking a holiday at Agriturismo Gli Etruschi?
The Gulf of Baratti, Populonia, and the parks of Val di Cornia surrounding us make our farm stay perfect at any time of the year, but if I have to choose the best season, I would undoubtedly say spring and summer. During this period, the countryside awakens and becomes a riot of colours, with fields turning green.Surrounded by the singing of birds, we experience a special moment as we witness the blooming of plants and the harvest of our land’s products.
In any case, the weather in this area of Tuscany is mild for most of the year, and the beauty of the countryside is always there in any season. So, for those seeking well-being, sports, and enjoying the beauty of nature, it can be done 365 days a year.
“When we opened our farm-stay, our main goal was to create a welcoming and hospitable environment for every type of guest. For this reason, Gli Etruschi is suitable for couples seeking romance and intimacy, families with children looking for a safe and fun place to spend their holidays, and groups of friends who want to spend time together in the great outdoors. Additionally, for those seeking a vacation of relaxation and wellness,our farm stay offers everything needed to rejuvenate and break away from the daily routine.
