The farm hosts several pets and animals: Orazio, the donkey, Birra and his family, the dogs, together with many cats, pigs, peacocks, sheep and chickens. It is particulary intersting for families with children, since the young guests can meet all these animals in real. From Orazio guests can reach Volterra in 10 minutes.

Rates do NOT include
As of 2012, visitors to Tuscany may be required to pay a tourist tax, the rate of which varies from town to town and according to the length of your stay. If the tax applies in the location you have selected for your stay, this will be collected by the owner/receptionist of the accommodation at your arrival and is therefore not included in our invoice and in the pricelist above.
Here the message of Melanie and Togay who stayed at Orazio's property and visited the dairy with the guidance of Massimo:
Dear Arianna and Massimo,
We wanted to thank you for the great cheese tour you offered last Friday.
I have to say the information and hospitality we received was above our expectation and it definitely was worth it.
(I got my colanders too from the farm btw)
We really enjoyed it and as I promised Massimo here I added my private email address.. will keep him posted in the future about our own ‘Sheep and cheese experiences’ J
