Farm Holiday Activities at Podere I Monti

We created a couple of activities for you while you are staying in one of our Tuscany holiday apartments, check them out!

Here are some of the outdoor farm holiday activities you can engage in during your stay at our farm house in Tuscany:

Mushroom Gathering

An easy walk of about 2 hours in the surrounding wood, immersed in the forest with only the sounds of nature and gurgling streams. We’ll help you cross the river and proceed into the woods.
Mushroom gathering periods depend on the Seasons, typically May-June and September-October-November. It’s not possible to make firm plans because we need to see how the growing season goes.
Hiking boots, basket and long trousers required.
From Euro 20 per person.

 

Basket weaving

Afternoon (about 3 hours). Following traditional methods, learn the art of basket weaving. At the end of the 3 hours, guests will have created a small basket or a trivet to put under hot pots.
Euro 35 per person, including materials.

 

Wild asparagus gathering

In spring, the first good days of sunshine, spend an afternoon walking around the surrounding premises looking for wild asparagus.
From the end of March to the middle of April you can typically find wild asparagus.
We recommend long trousers and hiking boots.
