It is wonderful when the Japanese tourists arrive with their uncertain English asking  <<where is Felix?>>. Felix, the golden retriever at Fattoria del Colle is just so famous. All of the visitors photograph him, cuddle him, and send messages. He is a celebrity.

Visitors’ dogs are well accepted at Fattoria del Colle also because Felix adores them. He loves playing and he literally allows them to jump up on him. The only problem is with those on a lead, but as soon as they are set free they begin having fun together.

During the season he disappears for whole days with his new friends and returns so tired he practically is sleeping on his feet. There are then those dogs he likes so much that he cannot be without, Felix sits out of their apartment where the family is staying and bark up until they open the door.

Felix  is a golden retriever born on November 24th 2010 in the Antica Etruria di Asciano kennel where he was named Valerio, name also on his pedigree together with those of his parents, grandparents, and their titles won in Italian and foreign competitions. Famiglia-3-200x300He arrived at Fattoria del Colle when he was two months old straight after the death of my beloved collie Black. I used to cry while driving and couldn’t sleep at night and I was able to get over the nostalgia for my previous dog only thanks to the arrival of the yellow puppy. When he was small he was soft and fluffy but also smelly, as he had the habit of stinky flatulence, where everyone had to race away. Read more…

GREAT WINES AND GREAT LOVES

The most precious products of the earth: wine and oil, contain aphrodisiac benefits known for centuries and that have r recently been confirmed by scientists. The discovery regarding red wine published by “Journal of Sexual Medicine” demonstrates how a couple of glasses increase desire within the couple. Without exaggerating though, too much has exactly the opposite effect, a fit of drowsiness.

COUPLES’ MASSAGE WITH OIL AND ESSENCES

Among the noble gifts of the earth is also the extra virgin olive oil that has aphrodisiac effects: an oil massage, especially done as a couple, prepares the skin for caresses and stimulates pleasure with its aroma, which, added to lavender or other natural essences acts as aromatherapy and helps seduction.

Wellness centre with a view at agriturismo Fattoria del Colle

In the new wellness centre of the Agriturismo Fattoria del Colle in Trequanda, which is owned by Donatella Cinelli Colombini, the surrounding countryside itself creates  part of the relaxing ambiance, the stunning vineyards, the vegetable gardens full of tasty produce, the themed guided tours and walks and the many festivals and celebrations which occur frequently through the year where you can meet new people and make new friends

‘The wellness centre will have a huge jacuzzi for private use, it will be able to be used exclusively by you together with your friends and family. You will be able to enjoy a great wine at sunset with views of some of the most beautiful countryside in the world stretching out in front of you.’This is the vision which has inspired Donatella Cinelli Colombini to develop the new Spa Centre in the Fattoria del Colle in southern Chianti. ‘It is a lovely property which will be available for up to 6 people for their exclusive use thus ensuring total privacy.’  Donatella concludes. But these are not the only things which make this relaxation centre unique. The design concept and the facilities are very modern however it has further been enhanced by the addition of some hand-made tiles whose designs are based on the illustrations found on nineteenth-century tiles which were used in traditional Turkish baths of that period and the Odalisque which were painted by Ingres. These  stunning decorations help to create the relaxed ambience and felling of wellbeing and, dare we say, makes the environment a little bit sexy. Here you have the opportunity to enjoy delicious wine whilst relaxing in the warm water of the pool.

The Relaxation centre is being created for the use of the guests of the Fattoria del Colle which include many  different types of people, some professional and some intellectual, in particular we find that foreigners are attracted to come and enjoy a visit at the fifteenth  century farm house.  All the Apartments and Bedrooms are furnished with Antiques, but no televisions, there are 3 swimming pools, 4  gardens  and parkland with age old trees, a games lodge with a pool table,  a restaurant which serves traditional local dishes from the Siena area (which have been even further improved by our excellent chef), a cooking school and  most important of all two wineries for the production of Brunello, Chianti and Doc Orcia wine.

The Relaxation Spa Centre has been created in an annex of the villa and has breathtaking views over the Val d’Orcia and the Crete Senesi. It is equipped with a turkish bath, a sauna,  a relaxation room, a hydro massage shower, a Kneipp pool and a hot tub. Individual massages take place directly in the guests own rooms to ensure maximum comfort and privacy.

Agriturismo Fattoria del Colle is situated at the  centre of an area which is
