Description

Our 17th century property is located in beautiful Umbria in central Italy, close to the historic and artistic towns of Assisi, Perugia, Todi and Orvieto. Our home overlooks a lush valley of olive trees, crops and breathtaking views of ancient towns and hills. We raise sheep and chickens, and are also home to dogs and cats. The property also houses an agri-tourism business.

We are embracing eco-sustainability and as such, we are striving to reduce and to eventually eliminate the use of natural gas on the property. Solar-energy is used for most of our electricity needs and in the future, for heating as well. Our home is currently heated with wood-burning stoves fuelled with the wood that is saved from trimming our forest of trees. All of our food scraps are saved for composting and for feeding the farm animals. Everything grown on the property is certified organic.

We strongly believe in the concept of community-based living and that everyone should experience life in the countryside. Coming to our farm, you are becoming a member of both our community and of our family and we look forward to warmly welcoming you!
