My wife siad that I should plan the next days excursion in Florence. So I surpised her with a day-trip to Fattoria La Vialla, because we love the products they produce, and I thought it would be nice to see where the stuff is coming from!
She was surpised to see us driving out of the city and happy when I told her where we are going to.

After a bit more than an hour drive, we have arrived at this picture post-card idyll. As many authors here say, we have been positively surpised by the friendliness and kindness of the people there. Same continued with our visit to the restaurant. The dish of the day was a simple minestrone-like soup just 1000 times better. Everything in the spoon had it's specific taste and together made a fantastic dish I have never got similar at any of my trips to Italy. This may be too fantastic words, but it is true. Everything you eat has a taste you find delicious. I would even recommend to try food again you tried once before in your life and didn't like, because maybe you will love it after you tried at Fattoria La Vialla!

We went on the off chance we could have a look around and pick up some of their amazing food and wine. Possibly one of our best decisions.
On arrival in the 'bottom' car park, we sat waiting until a golf cart arrived to take us 'up'. The young person driving spoke excellent English and totally embarrassed our inept attempts at Italian.
At the top, we were treated to an absolute idyllic setting; peahen and chickens roaming free in the hazy sunshine, together with a couple of very lazy cats, all impeccably behaved and very photogenic. The food was amazing, totally fresh and delicious. Staff were courteous. Being able to meander through the various outbuildings watching the chefs/craftsmen at work was wonderful. Everyone greeted us with a smile. The honesty policy embedded within the farm is refreshing and we were allowed to potter before gathering our extras together to pay for the very reasonable bill.

We would recommend a visit; be it for the young (play park there too), old who are happy to watch the world go by, or those in between. Just go. Fattoria La Vialla is a real gem in the Tuscan hills and worth a visit.

Just returned from Italy, including a visit to La Vialla and our order arrived today.
well packaged and as described.
Had a nice lunch in the Gardens, service was a bit slow but as it is such a pleasant location that wasn't a problem for us.
We were told about this place by some German visitors where we were staying., we travel to Tuscany every year and were quite surprised to hear about this, It's not difficult to find if you ask in the local town.

We couldn't believe when we arrived to this magical place and had the most relaxing lunch in months! The rhythm, the waiter, the wine.. Everything felt like a dream! We got a few boxes of wine home to remember that amazing place! Can't wait to get back :)

Fattoria La Vialla is a truly amazing place to visit. Off the beaten track, just north of Arezzo, this farm is run by three brothers who are passionate about preserving traditional farming methods as well as maximising the health benefits of their produce. The wine, sauces, oil and balsamic vinegar can be purchased from the UK, but it is only by visiting the farm that you truly appreciate the love and passion that goes into every bottle and every jar.
We ate several meals at la Vialla and each one was memorable, not only for the quality of the food, but also for the surroundings and incredible welcome. If you are able to visit I recommend lunch at the Museum. It is served in the gardens with chickens and donkeys for company - just beautiful :)
