Countryside
Tenuta di Creti is an 18th century farm house carefully restored some years ago to provide you all you will need for a perfect vacation. It has been owned by the Micheli family since 1900 and directly managed by them for four generations. The farm is situated in a typical and particular rural area and cultivates grapes, olives, wheat, sunflowers and melons in the summertime.

The Micheli family have put their beautiful period farm house at the disposal of guests who would like to spend their vacation in the countryside. The farm has been restored with respect to the original architectural characteristics. A large cypress garden, olive trees and other trees common to the area surround the cottage. The guests are always welcomed by a member of the Micheli family who will be at their complete disposal.

The farm Tenuta di Creti is divided into three spacious apartments and two annexes. For the use of the guests there is also a common living room on the first floor. The barn in front of the cottage has been made into a wonderful apartment.

The Micheli family have been careful to preserve the original architectural integrity of the structure. Importance has been given not only to the ceilings, with their imposing wood beams and earth baked tiles, but also to the wood furnishings and to the painting of the walls, which are different in every room.

The guests can find the satellite TV, a CD player and internet connection in the common room on the ground floor while in every apartment they have the TV without satellite. Air conditioning available only in the aptartments Scirocco, Aliseo and Libeccio.
 

GARDEN & SWIMMING POOL

Tenuta di Creti has a beautiful pool, 15 x 7 meters and 2.4 max deep, in its grounds from which you can enjoy a panoramic view of medieval hamlets beyond the grain and sunflower fields. A cypress garden, olive trees and other trees typical of this area surround the cottage.
For the children there is also a play area with swings. The guests can also use the wood burning oven and the barbecue to prepare delicious meals. There is ample parking near by. In addition mountain bikes are available to guests.
