We loved our stay at Spannocchia - we stayed at 2 different farmhouses - one with friends for a week and then the second week just our family of 4 (2 children one 3.5 yr old and one 12 weeks). We loved the spirit of the place and relished in its sense of community. The interns really helped make the experience and our son is still asking " where's Laura from the restaurant house" (the main building where communal meals can be eaten (great meals too). It was the perfect mix between plenty of personal/family space and community when needed. The place is beautiful. We took a cooking class, fed the chickens, swam in the pool, explored the local surrounds and near by towns and attractions. We were blessed with artists and classical musicians staying at the same time as us, whose creativity only enhanced our experience. With small children it was a wonderful place to stay!
We highly recommend it for anyone looking to get close to nature, out of the city and away from it all.
