The place is in the area of Radicondoli, Province Siena.
The next train station is in Poggibonsi, 52 mins by car, to reach our beautiful place. You are welcome to travel by train or by car (so you can discover the region by yourself).
Our place is secluded and the next bigger village is called Castelnuovo di Val di Cecina is a 15 minutes drive, where you can get really good Aperol Spritz at the piazza and all other important stuff, such as groceries. The minimum stay is two week.
Around an hour drive to Florence or Siena is definitely a good choice to visit bigger cities for sightseeing, museums or some decent shopping.
Radicondoli is a small historical, beautiful village where you can have great dinner, lovely people, good drinks.
Next to us, you can go for horse riding with nice trails through nature and explore lonely paths.
The goal for 2023 is to slowly try to become selfsustainable with the food we produce. We increased the land we dedicate to the veggy garden. Experienced people with ideas and knowledges are needed but more then anything else a positive, active, healthy attitidue is highly required as we can all learned something from each other.
You have a small cozy room with a single bed in the flat which Alberto lives in and there is a double bedroom next door for two more volunteers. He is taking care of the property and you will spend most of the time with him. There is another flat in the house, where a couple lives in. There are also two other residents "Due", the cat and "Timo" the dog. Timo is always up for play but doesn't mind a nice cuddle as well.
About Alberto: Alberto is a friendly and calm person, who´s from the north of Italy and felt in love with the Tuscan region. His English is good. Alberto will cook together you lunch and dinner depending on his schedule that will be discussed.
Since Pantaneto is quite a remote spot, you are welcome to spend your time with us, having a rental car or own car. If not, Alberto will pick you up at the bus station nearby and you would then obviously need to rely on Alberto for any further movements.
