If the rooms represent the artistic and emotional side of the bed & breakfast, our services and activities will offer you the opportunity to complete your holiday experience discovering the area between Volterra and Val di Cecina.
La Pecora Nera is the perfect place to reawaken and indulge all of your senses. Here you can taste the cheeses, oil and other organic products made by the small local businesses, breath in the perfumes and smells of the countryside, watch the sheep grazing, and maybe learn how to make cheese in a workshop, or venture into the hills, woods and cliffs of Volterra on horseback.
We offer quality services and simple activities to help you come to know Tuscany as we experience it every day, to pass on a little of the love we have for this land, and to let you taste and feel the good life and the style that make it so fascinating and desirable.
Welcoming organic snack
No matter what time you arrive, La Pecora Nera Bed & Breakfast will greet you with a sweet or savoury snack (of your choice), a fruit juice, a good coffee or a cup of hot tea, to welcome you and refresh you after your journey.
If a good beginning makes a good ending, breakfast must be complete, tasty and healthy. Our buffet includes our homemade cakes and a small savoury menu, besides fruit juices and all types of coffee and tea.
For special needs, or if you want a proper more substantial brunch (on request and at extra cost), we can also offer: scrambled eggs, sweet and savoury omelettes, green salads and mixed salads, oil dips, and fruit and vegetable smoothies. If you wish, you can have breakfast served in your room at a time of your choosing, to allow you to enjoy the start of a new day at your own relaxed pace.
Tuscan wine and organic cheese tasting
Let’s discover together the secrets, tastes and characteristics of our cheeses, accompanied by Tuscany’s great wines. We can organise (on request and at extra cost) tastings and learning experiences, guided and accompanied by the passion and experience of Elisa (a professional taster and member of ONAF – National Organisation of Cheese Tasters).
We look forward to seeing you at tea-time for a moment of sweetness, with biscuits and cakes made by Elisa or others in the area.
A candlelit dinner for two
For a romantic evening, a special event or just a little intimacy, let us take care of organising a tasting session or a cosy little candlelit dinner for two. We can plan the setting and the menu together (on request and at extra cost).
