Farmhouse Fattoria Il Cantuccio is an invitation to relive historical grandeur. Around 1500 the farmhouse belonged to the Alamanni family and here is where the poet Luigi Alamanni wrote his works. In the beginnings of the XX century it was inherited by the Marchesi Niccolini di Camugliano, and passed through the female line to Contessa Caterina Passerin d'Entreves et Courmayeur and her descendants,the present owners the "Conti Passerin d'Entreves et Courmayeur".
The farm produces and exports Chianti wine and extra-virgin olive oil that can be purchased directly on-line. In our lovely farmhouse you will discover a place of warmth in every sense of the word, a place where ancient times seem to live forever.
