Over the years, many artists and art lovers have stayed with us and, captivated by the beauty of the Tuscan landscape, have used our facility to organise painting and sculpture courses.
Our agriturismo, Fattoria Villa Spoiano, is a location that lends itself to artistic activities. We have ample outdoor space, gardens, a group house with kitchen and lounge for those who wish to do self catering as well as a restaurant for half board.
Not only the visual arts but also music fits in well with the atmosphere in Spoiano. We have a private chapel with excellent acoustics. Many musicians have stayed with us to practise, improvising small private concerts.
