Farmhouse in Tuscany for children: a unique experience for families

  • 01/07/2024

​Tuscany, especially for summer holidays, is one of the favorite destinations for those who want to enjoy a break surrounded by nature and relaxation: with its landscapes, hills covered with vineyards and olive groves, and rich cultural heritage, this region offers endless opportunities for leisure and discovery. However, when traveling with children, needs change, and finding the right balance between the fun of the little ones and the comfort of the parents becomes essential. Let's see which details to consider when choosing a farmhouse in Tuscany for children.


What to consider when choosing a farmhouse for children

When organizing a vacation with little ones on a farmhouse, it's essential to find a facility that meets a series of specific requirements. Families, in fact, look for a place that combines fun and safety for the children with comfort and tranquility for the parents. An ideal farmhouse must offer dedicated services for children, engaging activities, and a safe and welcoming environment. Let's look in detail at what to consider when choosing the perfect farmhouse for a vacation in Tuscany with children:


  • Dining services: one of the most important aspects when traveling is certainly food. The ideal farmhouse (perhaps with a nice outdoor restaurant to enjoy the summer days) should offer a menu dedicated to children, with healthy and tasty dishes that cater to their tastes. Additionally, the ability to warm up meals brought by parents is a highly appreciated service, as it allows maintaining the dietary habits of the little ones and ensures they always have warm and ready meals.

  • Room comfort: families need rooms equipped with everything necessary for the well-being of children. This includes changing tables, cribs, and beds upon request. Having these services available directly in the room allows parents to better manage the daily needs of their children, making the stay more relaxing and enjoyable.

     

  • Safe pools: the presence of a pool with dedicated areas for children is another essential element. For instance, a shallow pool area provides a safe environment where young children can play and have fun under parental supervision. Pool safety is crucial to ensure that children can enjoy the water without risks.

 

  • Recreational and educational activities: farmhouses that offer outdoor activities and nature-based experiences are particularly appreciated by families. Educational farms, where children can interact with animals, or equestrian centers that offer horseback riding lessons, are excellent opportunities to enrich the vacation with educational and enjoyable experiences. These activities allow children to learn new things and have unforgettable adventures.

 

  • Pet-friendly accommodation: more and more families are traveling with their dogs and look for farmhouses that welcome their four-legged friends. A pet-friendly farmhouse offers the possibility to bring along their pet, avoiding leaving it at home or in a kennel. This makes the vacation more peaceful and enjoyable, especially for the youngest members of the family.

 

  • Outdoor spaces and safety: the presence of ample outdoor spaces where children can play freely is another aspect to consider. Farmhouses nestled in nature, away from traffic and city dangers, offer a safe and stimulating environment where children can explore and have fun in complete freedom.

     

The farmhouses of Tenute del Cerro: a little paradise for families

The farmhouses of Tenute del Cerro are renowned for their family-friendly atmosphere and the services offered to families with children. Saverio Campria, responsible for the farmhouses, has explained how these establishments meet the needs of families, providing a unique and unforgettable experience.

“Tenute del Cerro offers various accommodation options in splendid locations immersed in nature. In Montepulciano, for instance, guests can enjoy the beauty of the hilly landscapes and the renown of local wines. This location provides a serene environment rich in history, ideal for excursions and cultural visits, allowing families to discover the charm of the Tuscan territory" Campria explains.

Monterufoli, on the other hand, is an area rich in flora and fauna, ideal for hiking enthusiasts. Nature lovers will find a true paradise here, with natural trails and breathtaking panoramas that offer the opportunity to explore the wild beauty of Tuscany. This location is perfect for families seeking an experience close to nature, away from the hustle and bustle of daily life", Campria continues. "Finally, the apartments in Montalcino combine the comfort of an apartment with the services of a farmhouse. This option is ideal for families looking for independence and flexibility, without sacrificing the services and amenities of a farmhouse".

In the farmhouses of Tenute del Cerro, there are also swimming pools which, as Campria explains, “are designed with special attention to children's safety, with dedicated areas and shallow ends.
