Responsible tourism: Tuscany farmstay self catering apartments, Italy

Environment

We are very much concerned with organic farming and a life as much as possible in harmony with Nature and its rhythm.
We have always treated our land with great respect and love. Recently we have also applied for the European Union organic certification for our olive oil, which, from 2014 on, will be labelled as organic.
We do not use any kind of pesticides neither in the orchard nor in the garden, we only add manure when needed.
Moreover, we try to rescue ancient varieties of seeds and plants which the market is condemning to an end by cultivating them in my grandmother’s garden.

Thanks to the “peasantry wisdom” that my grandmother has always shared with the whole family, we have learned to decrease the consumption “from wants to needs” and to avoid as much as possible wastes by reusing and recycling everything as much as possible. We strongly encourage our guests not to throw away their organic waste, but to feed our chickens with salads and vegetables leftovers.

Community

We encourage the relationship among good projects run by good people. In this vein, to concretely give our support to local organic and biodynamic productions, we have launched the project "organic 0 Km welcome basket": a welcome basket for our guests which contains some products from farms producing in the surroundings in an environmental friendly way.
We have personally visited each of the organic and biodynamic farms represented in the basket and have discussed with them the opportunity represented by a network of local people sharing the same concern for Nature and its integrity.

We strongly believe in a tourism that entails a sharing of local traditions, habits and cultures. We love spending time with our guests giving them tips about the area and its amenities. In particular, we advise about trekking itineraries near our agritourism (sometimes we also go with them for a walk), local markets, local craft makers and artisans, vegetarian and vegan restaurants, organic and biodynamic farms.
