The Old Cellar
Wines and Tuscan "slow food"

The old wine cellar of Borgo Mocale,  connected with our special "cheese cellar", has been transformed in a welcoming "tasting room".

From May to September we organize savoury tastings of all our  own organic products ( extra-virgin olive oil, goat and sheep cheeses, jams, olives)  together with local  typical delicacies ( salami, Pratomagno ham, "finocchiona", "lardo" and "tarese del Valdarno" ) and  organic wines, both local and from the Chianti Classico region.


A delicious presentation of  local, organic and healthy food!

The heart of Borgo Mocale

The unique spectacle offered by the panoramic veranda overlooking the Tuscan hills is the pride of Borgo Mocale, originally a medieval fortress and today has become a charming house for tourists who love peace and quiet.

The Veranda is composed of an area covered by a roof which gives access to the pool, which in summer becomes the area for breakfast, reading and games, and a second zone of access to the bar, to fitness trail and to the toilet. Vetrage closed and heated with wood stoves in majolica, the veranda allows you to use the services offered by the Borgo also in cold seasons.

The veranda houses the food court of the Borgo, reserved exclusively for guests. The kitchen offers typical Tuscan tasting, with its products, local and seasonal.

Borgo Mocale, more than a simple farmhouse

In the fortieth anniversary of the purchased of "Mocale", the D'Amico family built a stable shelter for sheep and goats in the olive grove Biccheri, recovering ancient farming activity was originally the site.

Now is possible to join the milking of the sheep and to take part to the farm life.

Poldo, Gina and Leah, our donkeys, together with the pair of Abruzzi shepherds Tosco and Lola, welcome guests with sympathy with the D'Amico family that lives here and manages the Borgo for more than 35 years.

Music Room
Thursday's concert at Borgo Mocale

A beautiful piano is the king of the "music corner" of Borgo Mocale. Every Thursday evening, from June to September, we perfom classical music piano concerts, in collaboration with Accademia Musicale Valdarnese.

Concerts start at 6.30 p.m. and during the break the owners of Borgo Mocale are offering a refreshment on the panoramic terrace. Both the concert and the aperitif are free of charge.

The program of each concert is published a few days before the event on the Fan Page of Borgo Mocale.

Guided tours can be organised on request: the tour starts from the garden of Borgo Mocale, where plants and trees have labels with detailed descriptions, goes on to a wooden bridge and across the Galligiano brook, leads to the organic olive grove and to the graze to meet sheep, goats and their wonderful guardians: our shepherd dogs Tosco and Lola.

We offer special guided excursions for children riding with our donkeys Lea, Gina and Poldo: indeed an unforgettable experience!

Hiking or riding through the Pratomagno

At 500 meters from Borgo Mocale's main buildings there is a riding center where we can arrange half a day or full day tailor made excursions.

Our guests could also join a guided trekking tour ( full day), organized every Tuesday by C.A.I. expert guides. A very nice way to explore the surroudings together with local,

very nice people with a passion for their native region.

The Museum
History and local traditions

A very nice way of learning  the story of Borgo Mocale is to visit our "Museum": during the restoration of the house we recovered many tools and daily life objects belonging to the families who lived at Borgo Mocale.

Later we decided to create a small "museum" to preserve them. We will be happy to tell our curious guests all we know about rural Tuscany traditions.
