Farmhouses have been minimally renovated in order to preserve their historic and rural character. They are furnished and equipped simply but adequately, and include all linens and kitchen utensils and equipment sufficient for complete meal preparation and service. The houses all have hot water to both kitchen and bathroom(s), and all are equipped with a washing machine. They do not have such items as stereos, TV’s, microwave ovens, or other electrical appliances, and do not have telephones or heating systems unless otherwise noted in the individual house description. Stays in the individual rooms of the Villa and Fattoria are available on a daily basis, and include breakfast and maid service. Rentals of the farmhouses are for a minimum of one week, from Friday to Friday. Visitors will enjoy one of the most beautiful, tranquil spots on earth, but should understand that Spannocchia is truly rural and not a vacation resort; rather it is an historic working farm, a wildlife preserve, and an educational center.
