Ghiaccione: the river to cool off in summer

In these hot days of July with a peak of 37 degrees, a hike that I recommend to my guests is to visit the river called “Giaccione: Big ice” (the name as you can imagine, comes from the fact that once, in the summer, people the area went to look cool in very cold waters of the river) and they were right, as even in this hot and dry period will find the water that flows down from the falls and you can make a cooling bath.

This river is located in a valley, the environment that is created is fresh and relaxing, despite the 37 degrees of these days.To achieve this river must take the road that leads from Chianni to Castellina Marittima, past the first bridge over a small river called La Torre, there’s another over the river Carbonaia, parked the car and go down the path that goes up the river.

After very little you will reach the first waterfall where you can start making the first bath.Continue, and you will feel the temperature down until you reach the second waterfall, “Tonfo degli Ebrei: Splash of Jews” (the legend says that during the Second World War, some Jews had been thrown down by this). Water makes a jump of about 10 meters down a rock face in this place you can do the second swim.

Good Fun!

Homelidays: I want to go back already- Le Ginepraie is PARADISE

We publish today this beautiful review appeared on the site of holiday vacation “Homelidays” by our American guests who have stayed in our villa the last days of March:
Title: I want to go back already- Le Ginepraie is PARADISE
Revwiew: This was the perfect place for my group of 10 people. Valerio and Paola make you feel like you are at home with family members. From the moment you check in, you are home. The rooms ( we called them quarters because they are so spacious) are impeccably decorated, clean and with all the amenities that we needed. Each area was like an apartment with kitchen, dining area and bathroom. The views from every angle of he Villa are amazing! we ran a few miles to catch a sunset above the village and had glimpses of deer running on the nearby field. Paola is fabulous chef, our meals were all made with local, incredibly fresh ingredients and paired with local wines topped off by Valerio’s espresso. Valerio led us in a 1 hour yoga class that only complemented our stay. From Le Ginepraie we drove to Florence and to Volterra but had local guides pick us up for a wine tour, as well as a day trip to Pisa and Luca. I could go on and on with reasons that this Villa is so wonderful but that would take hours. Each day and every moment was special and the owners with their beautiful daughter Viola, are the main reason why.

Paola and Valerio are always at your disposal for any further information and to provide you a quote without obligation.
