The rooms and apartments of La Papessa Farm Holidays are in an antique farm house, entirely built in stone, in the traditional Chianti style.
The building is divided in two parts, the main house and the annexe, from which 11 beautiful apartments have been developed. They are surrounded by a spacious park, a splendid swimming pool, a tennis court, a ping pong table and a barbeque area where you can savour all our own agricultural products
and the local gastronomic specialities.
The name of our Farm Holiday facility, La Papessa, comes from the local legend of the peasant woman who owned the original small holding centuries ago, and who was famed for being independent and very determined. So much so that people in the village called her the high priestess or, in Italian, La Papessa. Among the locals, the name has stuck, even though the small holding has since become a large estate with an elegant villa. For this same reason one of our wines
is called La Papessa.
