The place is isolated and wild but has wonderful views over hills and valleys of the whole Tuscany. 715 meters above sea level and south facing, there is mainly forest and bushes and only a short piece is cultivated at the moment with vegetables without using any chemicals, since the year 2000. There are two water springs in the property of which one is of very fine quality to drink, the other one comes out of a "burraia" a typical butterhut of which there are several in the area all connected by a special footpath, the "sentiero delle burraie",very well maintained. I try to maintain clean the main areas, around the house, tha area ofthe vegetable garden, and some paths; I try to clean other small fields from wild vegetation, to be able to cultivate some more land and to create a naturalistic-recreational-didactic path. I also have several ruins around the house and I try to keep them clean and I would like to create some spaces near my house to enjoy as a garden with people ( helpers and also paying guests, I would like to do some bed and breakfast in the house). The village of S.Brigida is 3 km far from the house and you can reach it on foot in half an hour going down, 45 minutes coming up. In S.Brigida there is free wi fi, not at my house. There you can take a bus to Firenze( one hour ) or to Pontassieve( half hour ). I have cats. I like collecting medicinal plants and wild fruits around the area. I also take care of cleaning around the cisto laurino, a special plant residual of ancient pre-glaciers times, it only grows in this area,I have the task of cleaning around it from the municipality of Pontassieve. Many other things or activities can be created in the place.
