Dinners are served family-style and 'al-fresco' on the terrace when possible. We will share our meals with other guests, residents, interns and any family members who might also be on the property during our stay. Fresh, seasonal, farm-to-table foods will be offered. The farm makes it's own honey, jam, pasta, olive oil, prosciutto, organic vegetables, wine, and has a wood-fired pizza oven.

The farm estate is a working historic farm, wildlife preserve and educational center, not a hotel. Facilities, and services at the Castello are designed for comfort and convenience but are not luxurious. The primary goal of the estate is the preservation of its historic and rustic character; as a consequence, visitors will enjoy a rare glimpse into a true Tuscan lifestyle of beauty and tranquility.
