    Luxurious villa among the hills of the Tuscan countryside Once again people are looking for destinations that have not been over-hyped, for places where they can rediscover the classical elements of existence: earth, water, air and fire. Places like Villa Ferraia, which offers a taste of the old Tuscany. It is located in the valleys of the Merse River, in the south of the province of Siena, not far from Montalcino and Pienza. You re not going to come across the place by chance, it lies well off the beaten track. Here life follows the rhythms of nature, in keeping with the ancient Roman concept of otium, of the leisure and time that are needed to restore body and mind. Here you can find hills, forests, lakes, wild animals, vegetable gardens, orchards and a private astronomical observatory. Something new to discover in every season: from the splendid colors of the autumn foliage to gazing at the stars in the clear winter sky, from rides on horseback to relaxing in pools of water at different temperatures, all amidst breathtaking scenery. Ideal for friends on vacation or destination weddings, for gatherings of stargazers, yoga courses or incentive groups, for managers who need to recharge their batteries, for team building programs, small-scale meetings or original events. A visit to Villa Ferraia is a unique human and cultural experience. It is a mutual exchange of feelings, ideas and information. A coming together of different ways and worlds that enrich one another. There are many slogans that become reality here: you can see for yourself what environmental sustainability means and how it is possible to make use of alternative sources of energy, such as solar panels, photovoltaic cells and biomass heating fueled by wood chips. You can try out a zero food mile diet, i.e. one in which everything is produced on the spot: going to the garden and picking fruit and vegetables straight from the plant, preparing meat, salami and cheeses, gathering herbs. You can learn all about a lifestyle that enjoyed great favor among the upper classes of ancient Rome many centuries ago and has now been forgotten. Nothing complicated. On the contrary, all you have to do is go back to that now unfamiliar simplicity and take a break from it all. What the Romans called otium is time to devote to yourself, to physical activities and pleasures like reading, playing games, philosophizing, exchanging dreams and ideas. Pursuing beauty and harmony and getting in touch with nature. And above all not letting yourself be overwhelmed by the opposite concept of negotium, business in the literal sense of the word: work, stress, hectic activity, racing against time are all banned. At Villa Ferraia we have re-created the concept of otium as an experience to nourish the spirit. The common spaces encourage meetings, conviviality and contact between the guests the spa, the sauna and the swimming pool help you to relax and detoxify nature and the stars to get back in touch with the world. And so all that remains is to wish you good otium! An exclusive resort in Tuscany A residence in an unspoiled setting, offering state-of-the-art amenities and technologies. It is located to the south of the historic city of Siena, on the top of a hill with a 360-degree view of the gently rolling Tuscan landscape. It is protected by thousands of hectares of forest belonging to the natural biogenetic reserve of Tocchi, of which 100 are part of the villa s estate and 25 are fenced off. The dirt country road leading to the hamlet brings guests into a special land, where humanity and nature are united by the same energy. It is not just an exclusive private villa, but a place in which to experience the ancient local traditions, learn the secrets of vegetable gardening, relish the intense fragrances of the numerous old varieties of roses growing in the garden, let yourself be pampered by the Roman baths and the sauna built of natural wood, spend the nights looking at
