Loc. Ponsano, Volterra
Taking the country road, flanked by age-old cypress trees, vineyards and olive groves, you arrive at the gate of Berignone Nature Park and the Orgiaglia Estate...
Its great location in central Tuscany makes Orgiaglia the ideal point of departure for getting to places of historic, artistic and cultural interest, such as Volterra, San Gimignano, Siena, Pisa, Firenze, Cecina and Lucca, whilst staying far from the hustle and bustle of these busier areas.
3,000 olive trees and sunflowers embrace the old farm, which was founded around the seventeenth-century master’s house, Luppiano’s villa, which looks on to the stupendous scenery between the natural land of Siena and the soft hills of Volterra, where your eye and spirit will fix upon the infinite and find peace.
The Estate is around 100 hectares, cultivated according to the criteria of organic farming, and is immersed in a faunal reserve of pheasants, hares, wild boars, foxes and deer.
It is the ideal place for whoever wants to recharge their batteries amidst the rare beauty of nature which is still intact and discover sounds, colours and smells: the gentle silence, olive trees of silver, aromatic broom flowers, pink and golden sunsets, red strawberry trees in autumn, fireflies and bright stars, nestled in the fresh breeze...of the sea
You will be welcomed warmly by the owners of the house, who will be available to assist you with every requirement, in a friendly, familiar environment, where you will taste the unique flavours of a time which has come to a stop here.

Among the starter dishes, caserecce al ragù (bread with sauce), pappardelle alla boscaiola (pasta with mushrooms), maniche alla nana, and a range of tasty soups: spelt, barley, Volterra soup…, tomatoes, porcini mushroom risotto or asparagus risotto, with asparagus from our woods.
Amongst the main courses: magnificent Florentine Steaks and tasty grilled cuts, rostinciana and sausages, chicken and rabbit grilled over oak wood in the great oven, saddle of pork with white wine, fagioli all’uccelletta, wild Etruscan pheasant and wild boar.
Fresh vegetables from the garden, salad from the fields, mushrooms, rosemary potatoes and more depending on the season.
Cantuccini (local biscuits) and Vin Santo (a dessert wine), grappa and genuine Chianti are available as much as you like... many other recipes of traditional Volterra and Tuscan cuisine, served at the pleasant table by the chimney in the stone room, outside on the pergola, or beneath the starry skies
It is a traditional kitchen, simple and tasteful, which takes you back to the old, abundant “slow food”, rediscovering the merit of sitting around a plentiful table.
The magic recipe for your well-being is made from simple and natural things, healthy eating, enjoying one another’s company, resting well and moving around in the outdoors.
Upon request, it is also possible to have lunch, from a full meal to an afternoon snack. During the day it is also possible to request sandwiches or drinks.
For breakfast, between 8am and 10.30am, we serve warm and cold milk, coffee, tea, fruit juice and water; bread and biscuits, cereal, butter, marmalade, honey from our apiary, homemade cakes, fresh seasonal fruit; upon request, egg, sliced ham and cheese for a continental breakfast.
“The most beautiful moment is to meet up again in the evening at the table, with the desire to be together, sharing bread, talking to a new friend about our experiences, hopes, life as it is; adventure...leaving behind the everyday, free to express ourselves in this large family gathered under the same starry sky.
In Orgiaglia, at every toast you will have one more friend!”
Franco and Umberta.
