KNOW BEFORE YOU GO
With its origins dating back to the 15th century, Fattoria di Maiano is situated in an elevated position above Florence and enjoys panoramic views over the countryside between Fiesole and Florence.
The estate covers an area of nearly 300 hectares and the agricultural practice is completely organic. The land is mainly used for growing olives, the estate has around 20,000 olive trees covering 110 hectares. Frantoio and Moraiolo olives are picked entirely by hand in the months of November and December and pressed in the estate's mill. The premium product is Laudemio, an excellent extra virgin oil with a high nutritional value.
Accommodations are offered in lovely traditional Tuscan holiday apartments located within the estate. Originally, these apartments were rustic homesteads and former convent buildings. Recently renovated, and paying particular attention to the architectural style, these apartments have been restored to recreate the authentic Tuscan country style in terms of ambience, peace and panoramic views.
During the summer months at Fattoria di Maiano, guests can enjoy the lovely swimming pool that is located in the gardens of Fattoria. Nestled next to an olive grove, the gardens and pool overlook, what can only be described as, a truly stunning view on the surrounding countryside. The Fattoria di Maiano also offers guests a programme of activities to choose from: the teaching farm, cooking classes, art and restoration class, Villa di Maiano and Olive Mill guided tours and tastings and discovery tours of Tuscany.
In the very heart of Fattoria di Maiano you will find the 15th century Chiostro cloister and the impressive fresco Madonna della Misericordia by Spinello Aretino. Next to the cloister is the Sala del Convitto, the former convent refectory and Sala Olivaia, an ancient olive storage room. The two halls and the cloister are now settings for business meetings, parties, anniversaries and food and olive oil tastings. They are also the stage for Stagioni in Fattoria - Fattoria di Maiano music and theater festival.
