  • Description

    Description

    Our homested is placed in a gorgeous environment, at the Southern Tuscany borderline, with spring water pools, enclosed in a fairylike oak, beech and maple woods, spotted by moss covered ancient volcanic boulders.
    A clear small river 100 mt away,allows pure clay baths and trout fishing.
    Plenty of wild animals, such as badgers,porcupines,wildpigs,roes, heghogs,weasels,squirrels,dormouses,owls,
    herons and hawks.
    Our project aims to realize a well being natural resort settlement, to enjoy and share the beauty and revitalizing power of the elements, with nourishing natural food, creativity and joy, learning skills and arts for body and mind balance.
    We are just a couple, supported by quite a few friends enthusiastic of the site we choose to be caretakers. Some of them are proposing to collaborate to our project through their skills, such as historical archery school, social and artistic events, etc. So we are empowered by a vital and creative impulse.
