Two-storey apartement in farmhouse, swimming pool in common use, table tennis available, restaurant on site. Close to the small village of Castelfranco di Sopra. The ground floor is wheelchair-accessible.
You will discover that the 'Balze' are a landscape of rare beauty, centuries-old examples of erosion that over the years have formed towers and rocky blades that rise majestically in the valley bottom, and that will catapult you into a suggestive, almost magical world.
The Agriturismo Le Balze is located in the heart of the Alto Valdarno, at the foot of Pratomagno, and 2 km from the village of Castelfranco di Sopra. The nearest shops and supermarkets can be found in Montevarchi or San Giovanni Valdarno, about 10 km away. Here, in the small, pretty towns, you can spend an evening out for dinner or organise an aperitif with friends.
The property is divided into three apartments resulting from the restoration of old farm outbuildings close to the main house where the owners live. Traditional materials such as wood, terracotta and stone were used in the renovation carried out to maintain the building's rural and peasant origins. All the apartments overlook a wooden porch on one side, where you will have your own private space equipped with table and chairs to spend the cool summer evenings at dinner or with your family or friends.
In the large, green garden you will have a practical barbecue and a table tennis. The swimming pool in common use is located at the back of the building (size 6x12 m, depth 1.40 m - open from 14 May to 17 September) and is completely fenced. Laundry and ironing facilities in a common room.
At Agriturismo Le Balze you can taste and buy excellent wine and extra-virgin olive oil, vegetables, fruit, and all the farm's products. But certainly one of its highlights is the small restaurant (maximum 25 seats - reservation required) run by the owners and located on the ground floor of their home, open both to the public and to guests of the agriturismo, where you absolutely must, at least for one evening, taste the delicious typical dishes, which are cooked using tasty local products.
We can assure you that you will not regret it!

Soggiorno piacevole in un contesto tranquillo, immerso nella natura. La vista sulle balze fa la differenza. Siamo stati accolti dall’host e ci siamo sentiti subito a casa. Consigliatissimo!
Toda la familia de la propiedad son encantadores. Un trato amable y familiar, siempre con una sonrisa. El sitio es muy agradable y la comida muy buena. Hemos disfrutado mucho.
Splendido!Basterebbe solo una parola per descrivere il nostro soggiorno in questo paradiso: Superlativo. Immerso nel verde assoluto, circondato da queste stranissime e altissime montagne di terra, l'agriturismo e' una favola. L'appartamento in cui ho soggiornato era delizioso ed in stile rustico.I propietari sono delle persone simpaticissime a cui piace conversare con gli ospiti e metterli a proprio agio.
