Dipped in the green of the Tiberina valley in Tuscany, with an exclusive view of Lake Montedoglio, Le Ceregne Organic Farmhouse was born as one of the first realities in Italy of eco holiday, with zero negative impact on the environment.
The farm: Organic Farmhouse in Tuscany for sustainable hoildays
Le Ceregne Organic Farmhouse is a 60 hectare estate, cultivated according to the principles of organic farming: you can have, here, a real eco holiday . We grow fine quality olive trees, fruit trees (cherries, kaki, walnuts, hazelnuts, peaches, apricots and some rare varieties of apple and pear trees once local to the area), and a few varieties of grapes, such as the Sangiovese and the Canaiolo. We also produce natural local wine, Tuscan oil, homemade jam, cookies and typical ragu.
Within the estate, you can find not only chestnut wood, but also sunflowers, wheat, barley and fodder, cultivated in rotation to avoid soil depletion, maintain soil quality and guarantee biodiversity.
In the green farmhouse itself, we raise various kinds of poultry: hens, geese, ducks, turkeys and guinea-fouls.
We make everything we use and guests can feel free to pick vegetables and seasonal fruit from the garden themselves... and for children, it is a rite of passage to visit the pen, to feed the hens and pick up a few fresh eggs!
Km zero products
Our green philosophy is supported by buying natural local products (km zero) like cheeses and typical Tuscan salame, which make your experience genuine and local!
Anything we don’t produce ourselves comes from agricultural companies registered to the Path of Tuscany Flavours in the Tiberina valley, Tuscany. We were glad to join this organization in order to guarantee the ongoing quality of the products that we use. We respect and believe in enogastronomy values.
Organic restaurant: Traditional Tuscan flavours, like Nonna used to make
Our Tuscan cuisine melts authentic ingredients with traditional of recipes which have been handed down for generations. Our philosophy is to offer typical and traditional dishes of the Tiberina valley, an area on the eastern border between Romagna and Umbria.
Our food tradition, crossing the imaginary borders of the map, is characterised by dishes like passatelli, ravioli and potatoes tortelli from Romagna, or fennel sausages from Umbria, as well as typical Tuscan dishes such as panzanella, minestra di pane, sugo finto, bruschetta, crostini neri and handmade pasta. Our cuisine stands out for plates based on hunted food such as wildboar, alongside porcini mushrooms and truffles picked in the surrounding bush. This is traditional Tuscany on a plate!
Our organic farmhouse, thanks to the cooking skills of mum Antonella, is the winner of the farms cooking contest from the annual 100 flavours of Appennino festival with her specialty, wildboar and mushroom.
Le Ceregne is part of the Path of Tuscany Flavours and offers, to those who love typical Italian products and tastings, several tours such as a tasting at the olive oil mills, or visits to nearby wine cellars. Our preference in the area is the Chianti wine cellars and tasting tours of typical local ripe products like cheese and salami.
