We are Ginevra and Davide, a young couple who lives in a farmhouse among the beautiful Maremma hills near Grosseto, in Tuscany. We have almost 2 hectares of olive tree fields, two organic vegetable gardens and a little new orchard and work with tourists using our farmhouse as a space for group activities (residential seminars) mostly in summer. We also have a saltwater pool available in the warms months and a large studio with a wooden floor for practicing activities. Four cats, a very friendly dog and a parrot live with us. Ginevra's parents live here sometimes too. Our home is surrounded by a big garden with plants, flowers and trees and a beautiful view over the hills.
We are a couple who love traveling, sharing good vibes and learning new things. We are both very interested in eco-sustainable lifestyle and permaculture and our dream is to improve our land with the permaculture principles. Ginevra is also interested in yoga practice, she's only a beginner and that's why she'd love to host yoga teachers or lovers.
Scansano is the nearest village (6 kilometeres) and it’s famous for its locally grown wine, Morellino. We live in a strategical area to visit many places as beautiful beaches, medieval towns, natural parks, hot springs, Etruscan ruins. Cities such as Rome, Florence, Siena can be reached in a short time (about 2 hours by car).
Notice that there is no public transport between our home and the nearest village, but we usually go there very often and you can also walk or do hitchhiking. And that's why it's better come with your own car, if you have it.
