A restored thirteenth century farm in the heart of Tuscany
Connect with nature in a beautifully tranquil spot in a restored 13th century farm beautifully transformed. Nestled inside an evergreen forest, it sits on an extinct volcano that was sacred to the Etruscans, and overlooks the medieval walled town of Monteriggioni.
The life style of old Italy is preserved here on this unique spot. The wonderful owners have dedicated themselves to the organic farming of olive trees, vineyards, fruit, vegetables and herbs, which are then used in preparing home-made vegetarian meals.
The unique décor of the ten bedrooms in this traditional farmhouse is serene, with earthly colours and windows looking out onto the rolling hills of the Tuscan Countryside
This property is ideal location to organise a retreats, for example yoga practice, meditation, exercise, artistic creation or hands-on contact with nature in the fields. Their experience and network of quality instructors and therapists offers you personalised experiences to maximise restoration, healing, and growth.
Their philosophy is that food is the ultimate source of health and happiness. The food is prepared with fresh, locally sourced ingredients, primarily the certified organic produce they grow on their own site. Over twenty years of travel and living by the mantra that ‘food is medicine’, their meals are a highlight for the guests: always rich in nutrients, organic and vegetarian. The menu varies depending on the season Mediterranean traditional flavours meet new creations in the healthy, vibrant cooking.
The thick walls and terracotta tiles of the house keep guests cool in the summer and cosy in the winter, and the many windows let the lavender-scented breeze fill the rooms. There are ten uniquely-furnished rooms cluster around a spacious communal area containing a traditional fireplace. Although most rooms are doubles, there are options for singles and/or 3 triples. In case of larger groups they can offer additional double bedrooms nearby.
On the ground floor there is a multi-purpose wooden floor activity room of 100m², which has an adjoining bathroom. There is also a massage room, as well as a wood-burning pizza oven.
Much of Ebbio life is spent outdoors, often at the large communal tables under the shade of the pergolas, where you eat the meals prepared in the professional kitchen using their own organic produce. For a moment to oneself, there are plenty of chairs in the sun and hammocks in the shade, ideal for sunbathing, reading or star-gazing. The south-exposed patio is well suited for sunrise and sunset sessions as well as celebrations or parties. The cool off in summer there is also a pool as well as river nearby.
Monteriggioni: Distance 2.2 km (25 min walk)
A beautiful, perfectly intact mediaeval village. There is a tiny museum, a small church, some bars, restaurants, an ice-cream hub and some other shops. Walking around takes no more than 10 minutes. You can also take a walk on the walls to enjoy the exquisite Tuscan landscape.
At Plinius we feel this is a very special property because of the ultimate Italian Slow Living.
