To begin: nature shows its romantic side
For many of us, September represents the month of the return to daily life, the end of summer and of a more or less long period of rest. The days begin to get shorter, while our rhythm resumes the usual speed. Nature, however, asks us to listen to other emotions.
September is the month in which the fields invite you to enjoy some of the latest and most important fruits of the year, just before the land returns to the rest season, ready to start its life cycle again. Olive trees are full of fruits that will soon be harvested, while the harvest enlivens the fields and collect people from small communities.
The grape is ready to become wine, protagonist of the work of the following months.
September is an opportunity to observe all this, to enjoy the air that begins to be a little cool, to witness the change of nature and to find yourself again, your soul reflected in the abundance of nature’s gifts and in its preparation for recollection.
How to take advantage of this moment?
Visiting Fietri in September is a unique opportunity to experience this time of year. Our land is alive and offers guests the spectacle of nature and the work of people who are passionately dedicated to reaping its fruits.
And to give you some more reasons to visit us… We have prepared for you a calendar of events! These are activities, fairs and other events that will take place in September in the surroundings of Fietri, all reachable from our Agriturismo. Tuscany is a region that never stops, both by a natural and a cultural point of view, and this is only the beginning!
Month by month we will discover the many opportunities that the provinces of Tuscany offer us.
Have fun and… see you soon!

Festa del Luca, SAN GUSMÉ
The event proposes a rich program of initiatives and shows under the sign of tradition, and in the memory of Luca Cava, bizarre character of the Tuscan folklore. A curious statue remember him at the entrance of the village: a crouched man covering the shame with the hat, intent on carrying out his daily functions alongside a singular writing: “King, Emperor, Pope, philosopher, poet, peasant and worker: the man in his daily functions. Don’t laugh, think about yourself”.
