Its history, the services and the whole experience of staying at the Tenuta di Artimino near Florence make this the perfect place for those who want to immerse themselves in the wonderful food and wines of Tuscany in a location that’s close to Florence.
The estate is situated just 30 km from the city and can offer guests comfortable apartments that are equipped with all the necessary modern comforts in the historic setting of a traditional farmhouse and its adjacent buildings.
Experiencing the wonderful local tastes and flavours begins at the Biagio Pignatta restaurant which is situated within the confines of the estate and is just a stone’s throw from the apartments.
The restaurant serves a traditional gourmet cuisine which is lovingly created with fresh, locally sourced ingredients such as fresh fish, and special cuts of meat accompanied by fresh fruit and vegetables that have been grown in the estate’s kitchen garden.
Classic dishes from both the land and sea are accompanied by delicious traditional local fare paying homage to their culinary roots dating back to the cuisine of the Medici such as the unmissable duck à l'orange.
For those who wish to fully immerse themselves in the culinary philosophy of Tuscany, why not participate in one of the cookery courses that are given by the Head Chef of the Biagio Pignatta Restaurant?
Whilst you are enjoying your well-earned break here with us, you can choose from a wide range of different experiences such as a wine tasting, for example. The estate’s vineyards which cover the rolling hills near Florence will enable you to choose from 8 fine red, white and rosé wines.
These are all ready and waiting to take part in different types of tastings that will be carried out by our sommeliers and can be combined with a tour of the vineyards.
We can also make magical suggestions for a picnic that will enable you to sample a range of the local produce that is available as well as wine classes and a wine course with one of our sommeliers.
You can also find a wine shop within the estate, an exclusive shop where you can purchase some of the wonderful products that have been lovingly cultivated on the estate so that you can take a taste of Tuscany home with you when you leave.
