Nestled at the top of a large truffle forest, Brentina is a sun-filled casa colonica that has been divided into four apartments. While certain original architectural details have been preserved, most of the apartments in Brentina also have unique design touches. It is a house that encourages solitude, while also offering space for gathering together. The house has a swimming pool (10 m x 5 m, open from May to September), shared laundry, BBQs and a shaded room with a ping-pong table. The wild forests surrounding Brentina have multiple hiking trails that take you through both young and old forests, with glimpses of stunning vistas over the rugged landscape. Brentina can be reached via a 1.2 km drive on a dirt road from the Reception (see map in gallery).
Perched on the top of a hill, Doderi has a classic Tuscan structure with a large portico entryway. The house is surrounded by apricot, locquat, cherry and peach trees with olive trees interspersed on all sides. The three self-catering apartments have antique terracotta tiled floors, wooden beams and rustic Italian farmhouse furnishings. Services include a pool 10x5 meters (open from May to September), shared laundry & BBQs and various shaded pergolas from which to enjoy the breathtaking view over the valleys below. It is the point of departure for many walking and hiking trails, some of which lead down to the lake. Doderi house can be reached with a 1.2 km drive on a dirt road from the reception (see map on gallery)
LE TROSCE HOUSE
Tucked on the slope of a hill, Le Trosce is a sunny, expansive farmhouse with space for 8+2 people. It is single storey, constructed using bricks produced on the property during the 19th century. Its various entrances create a relaxing flow within the communal areas and its ample rooms provide plenty of space for large group gatherings. Le Trosce's cotto floors, beamed ceilings and large fireplaces lend it a romantic charm. Windows in each room offer unparalleled views over the surrounding valleys, the lake, the wheat fields and the deep forests. A covered pergola next to a small dipping pool offers a perfect place for a glass of wine at sunset. Le Trosce house can be reached with a 0.5 km drive on a dirt road from the reception.
weddings and events
YOUR WEDDING IN A TUSCAN FARM
Every year, Fattoria Barbialla Nuova hosts a few, selected, wonderful weddings and events. We favor small, well organized ceremonies, with guests that understand and love the essence of this location. A wedding or an event in Tuscany can assume many shapes; to the couples that choose Barbialla Nuova we offer a real and rustic bit of the countryside in which to live their best days.
We host weddings and events from March to mid-June and from mid-September to the end of November, but we do take into consideration alternative dates. You can organize your event independently, have your wedding/event planner contact us, or we can organize much of the event from this end. From year 2017 we started a partnership with DESINARE at Riccardo Barthel (and we love it). The gallery that follows and this link will give you an idea of what a wedding at the farm looks like.
