Responsible tourism: Rural villas in Tuscany, Italy


Our property is part of an old building , that was originally a medieval water mill and which is locally considered of historical ineterest. For this reason every restoration is made using only premium materials in the total respect of the original ones and of the original architecture.

Our energy suppliers ensure a green policy and for our part, we recycle and we ask our guests to do that - we use the wet waste for our garden whose products are totally biological. For watering our gardens, we only use water coming from the near Ciuffenna river, flowing in our property, always trying to save water and use it carefully.

Our olive groves , the cypresses and pine trees surrounding our property are the perfect habitat for squirrels, foxes, wild boars, dormice and many types of birds. We totally respect the wildlife that is part of our enviroment and we do our best to establish a perfect cohabitation, where the habitat is preserved even though the human presence is very strong. We believe that our philosophy is appreciated by our guests who are are normally very respectful and proud to be part of that experience!


Our property is no profit , meaning that all the earnings coming from rentals goes to support the educational projects of a local no-profit association mainly working with disabled persons.

These people are also working on the farm, taking care of gardens, olive groves and vineyards. Together with these guys , we also collaborate with kintergardens and primary schools setting up workshops to show the children how the basic process of the agricolture works (for example how the olive oil is made) or how we can use the products coming from our garden (for example how to make a tasty fruit jam!).

In this way we wish to share with people (especially the youngest ones) that everything and everybody in this world is a precious resource. We always try to promote the riches of our land, showing our guests local restaurants, shops, street markets and historical sites which in turn helps to support the economy in our area and lets our guests discover all the aspects of our culture.
