About Us


Located on a nature reserve in the hills of Tuscany, our 1100-acre organic farm, Tenuta di Spannocchia, hosts guests from around the world. Scholars, artists, musicians, and environmentalists visit our historic estate to experience the stunning natural setting and support our conservation efforts.

At Spannocchia, we are committed to preserving the original property as well as promoting sustainable living. We produce certified organic olive oil and wine, and our vegetable garden provides produce for authentic seasonal cuisine.

We honor the traditions of Tuscan living and seek to preserve them for generations to come.


Spannocchia offers a unique experience for travelers looking to see a lesser-known side of Tuscany. Ideally located within short driving distance of Florence, Siena, and many scenic Tuscan hill towns, but isolated enough to enjoy the natural beauty of the local landscape, Tenuta di Spannocchia allows visitors to immerse themselves in a historical, agricultural estate.

The centuries-old architecture of the original tower and aristocratic home, as well as the many restored farmhouses, provide the optimal setting to relax and enjoy la dolce vita.

Our community is always happy to provide visitors with recommendations for attractions, museums, restaurants, wineries, and day trips within the area. Or, chose to partake in the full Spannocchia experience, participating in our onsite tours, tastings, cooking classes, and more.


Friends of Spannocchia, a U.S.-based nonprofit organization, was created to support the important educational activities and conservation initiatives at Spannocchia. Members and supporters of the organization help to make the educational programming and farm internships possible, while promoting sustainable living to visitors from around the globe. All profits from the sale of our online products are donated to Friends of Spannocchia to help further their mission.
