The farm is located about 20 minutes from Pienza. It is a working farm. The owner provides a very informative tour for about 30 minutes. We then had a wonderful fresh farm to table lunch with cheeses and charcuterie made on the farm. Great experience!

I went to Podere Il Casale for lunch and stayed there for 3 hours - the host Micha was very welcoming, showed me around the farm and told me of its history. Incredible people, incredible food, incredible view - a must-visit in Tuscany!
