In 2009 we bought this place, abandoned for years, leaving the beautiful city of Florence, where we settled.
Since then we started recovery of the house and land, mostly made on our own, cleaning of the park, pruning trees, restoration of doors and windows in original timber, recovery of terraced land of the old estate.
In this path we are learning a lot and mistaking as much :), we got to know our limits better and timing of nature determining the course of our work.
Our farm is our project, our work and our lives: ours is a real country house where our enthusiasm, industriousness and hospitality characterize these places.
Besides olive trees culture and our family organic garden, we work with kids and adults for sustainability education in many different ways.
