For families

Family holidays are all about finding the right balance between what the little ones and the grown- ups want to do. Tuscany has so much to offer, from lively medieval festivities to nature reserves, from painting classes to walks in stunning landscapes, that you will be spoilt for choice.

There are innumerable medieval and renaissance towns to visit, such as Montepulciano, Pienza or Siena. There are classes of all kinds and for all ages, from painting to cooking to Italian. There are nature reserves, such as the nearby Lago di Montepulciano, and lake Trasimeno to see, one of the biggest in Italy. There are lively medieval traditions for you to witness, such as the Bravio delle Botti in Montepulciano  or the Palio di Siena. There are old style amusement parks, such as the città della domenica . And, it almost goes without saying, marvelous walks to take in breathtaking fields, orchards, olive groves and vineyards just outside our gate.

Metina, with its enclosed garden and wide swimming pool, is the ideal base for a family holiday in Tuscany. We have a swing and slide in the garden, a paddling pool for the babies and toddlers, as well as cots, high­chairs and extra children’s beds. Here you can relax while planning tomorrow’s activities.
