About Francesco Ruatti
I love my Tuscany and all its old traditions, I like the country life and all that surrounds it: The discovery of old farmhouses, breathtaking vistas and hidden places. In this case I was lucky enough to inherit from my grandparents (Ermete and Angelica) this beautiful villa and renovated with love and professionalism, respecting the architectural systems of the past and adopting strictly original material of those times. I believe that my sacrifices I have been well rewarded, since they are very happy with the end result. I was lucky enough to live in a small town in this part of the earth among the most loved and visited in the world. At school I had as companion a certain Andrea Bocelli, you've got it right! the current Maestro Andrea Bocelli, at that time he lived with his parents too, in a small village (Lajatico) not far from me, where he still performs in concert on time every year, in the beautiful scenery of hills which is (The Theatre of Silence). I forgot, a few days ago, how could it happen to you, I met him on his horse, he stopped for a drink at the bar of the country. In Tuscany, it can happen that and more!
Francesco Ruatti purchased this Villa in 1921
Why Francesco Ruatti chose Peccioli

Relaxing and luxurious Tuscan vacation with Family and Friends
Just fantastic! Warm welcome to a fabulous villa. Exceeded our expectations! Best view in Tuscany.We cooked dinner each night in the large, well-equipped kitchen or on the courtyard grill. The pool was beautiful and cleaned on alternate days (as were all outdoor areas). There were 5 bedrooms with nice linens and towels (1 was on the ground floor with bath (shower), but no AC. Two baths are upstairs - 1 with shower and tub and 1 just with shower. Screens and AC in the upper 4 bedrooms as well as the kitchen, library, breakfast and dining rooms. We paid an extra 50 Euros for the AC use. Nights were cool, so we didn't use AC the entire time. Located in a small village with a cafe and shops for the basics (like cheap, good Chianti). Major shopping can be done at Conad (in Capannoli) grocery store on the way from Florence or Pisa. You will need to purchase everything you will need to cook as there are no foodstuffs in the villa. You can get a quick lunch at the store's cafe. Pastas were really good! Pizza night on Wednesdays at an Agritourismo farm of Franscesco's. Best bread I've ever had. We are already planning our return.
The villa Angelica is fantastic as was Mrs Sheila Goos's group! Really special and respectful people of the places! I would be very happy to welcome them again in the future! Yes, the ground floor room for now does not have air conditioning but already this year in November we decided to install it there too!

Thanks anyway for appreciating Villa Angelica.
The week before yours there were only 7 people and we removed some pool beds and some armchairs and when you arrived we forgot to add them. It was enough to let me know about this thing and I immediately proceeded to add the missing beds and chairs. Sorry again for our distraction.
If you return on holiday in the Villa Angelica you will find everything in order.
What to visit
Beyond the classical destinations of the most important cities of art which surround us, in our immediate vicinity it is possible to visit countless smaller villages which are without doubt rich with notable artistic and cultural interest; amongst others, we draw your attention to the town of Peccioli. There is the Etruscan Museum and, in its surrounding countryside, the Etruscan excavations of the Ortaglia sanctuary, dating back to the ninth-second century BC, the very particular Museum of Russian Icons and, for the pleasure of the little ones, the prehistoric park, among the largest and most beautiful in Italy.
In the village of Libbiano there is the Astronomical Observatory of Galileo Galieli, in the town of Montefoscoli, The Museum of Peasant Civilization, in the village of San Gervasio, The Museum of Workers and Rural Civilization; in the town of Capannoli in the splendid Villa Baciocchi, in late Baroque style, it is possible to visit both the Zoological Museum and the Archaeological Museum. .
There are countless itineraries of naturalistic interest which find themselves in harmony within our hills, allowing a taste of the beauty of the place and, furthermore, whenever you raise your eyes to the sky, you will see enchanting bell towers and a surprising richness of churches from across ten centuries.
In the course of a year in the town of Peccioli, there are many traditional events, with food festivals, local celebrations linked with theatre events, cultural events of great variety and of a high standard of theatre, music, dance, cinema (with special initiatives for children).
Scenery and surrounds
In the surrounding countryside you can see many charming villages and farms, some of them tumbledown – testimony of the past rural civilization. But at the same time they are reviving, transmitting and creating moments of happiness and simple emotions, which all of us desire and you feel again that the world is finally yours, this is what you will get in an agriturismo in Tuscany.
The Villa is located on the outskirts of the small medieval village of Fabbrica, where you can sit at the tables of the characteristic Bar (La Cisterna) and make a tasty breakfast or have a drink in complete tranquility.
Our area is very well served by countless typical restaurants; amongst these, I can make mention of one in particular (Ristorante Serravalle) and where Paolo (owner and passionate cook) will make you taste typical Tuscan cuisine with his truly exclusive dishes, and will suggest to you which of the excellent, local wines to accompany your meal, all expertly produced by his own company.
For those who want to be in direct contact with nature, there are beautiful natural trekking and mountain bike routes, and for the more athletic wishing to rediscover the joy of adventure, there are facilities just 5 km from the agritourism site for horseback riding along the attractive paths of our hills or play golf in the beautiful golf of ( Tenuta di Castelfalfi ), with a 22-hole course, plus a putting green and a practice bunker.
For those who would like to indulge in the care of their own bodies, 12 kilometres from our company there is the exclusive thermal centre of Casciana Terme, where it is possible to benefit from the full range (thermal cures, well-being centre, cosmetic line etc).
Each year the tenor Andrea Bocelli performs at the Teatro Naturale Del Silenzio (Natural Theatre of Silence). Located near Lajatico and just 2 km from our Villa Angelica, it is a magical place nestled in the surrounding green hills.
Thanks to the additional presence of numerous international stars of music, the concerts attract thousands of people from all over the world.
It is a special occasion that takes place every July and which continues to charm its audiences.
The Ruatti family is happy to invite its guests to a fun Pizza Party to get together and enjoy having fun as a group! This is what we propose:
Bruschetta with garlic and oil and Bruschetta with tomato
