A short distance from the village of San Casciano dei Bagni, the dirt road that climbs through the oak forest leads you to Villavetrichina with its pink plaster and blue shutters. Very particular and unusual colors if you observe the style of Tuscan houses but linked to the uniqueness of this farmhouse nicknamed for this reason The Lady of the Woods surrounded by centuries-old oak trees and the scent of aromatic plants.
An ancient farm, a typically rural building dating back to 1789 used to work wood, raise sheep and cultivate land, abandoned over time, has been renovated maintaining all its original characteristics, using local materials and handcrafted furnishings, becoming a charming villa equipped of modern comforts immersed in peace and silence.
Its name mapped on ancient maps derives from the vetrici, a variety of weaving willows that grew luxuriantly on this Vetrichina hill. Once upon a time there were no roads and the farms were identified by these or other details.
Villavetrichina welcomes you today, transmitting all its energy derived from this uncontaminated environment, from the love and passion for hospitality that is perceived everywhere.
