The property is located upon a beautiful hill within a huge natural resort (restocking game reserve for pheasants, hares and wild boars).The family-run farmhouse has always been producing extra virgin olive oil and Chianti wine from the 23 ha surrounding the property. For the last 11 years we have also been breeding trotter horses (La Moraia offers also the opportunity for our guests to put their horses to board). This setting in the heart of Chianti is that perfect mix of vineyards, olive groves, hills and woods.
