Fattoria di Scaletta is located in San Miniato, a small town in Tuscany, half way between Florence and Pisa, well-known for its Rocca Federiciana, a tower, named after emperor Frederick II, built in the XIII century. In this farm  we grow cereals, sunflowers and vineyards. It has belonged to the Bartolini Baldelli family for about two centuries. Recently, we have developped a farm holiday activity in two large detached houses ('La Villa' and 'Il Girasole') furnished in rustic Tuscan style, each with a private garden and an exclusive swimming-pool. It is a perfect holiday destination for groups and families, located in a strategic position for those who want to visit the most famous art cities of Tuscany.
