Its very rewarding but hard work to run and maintain an organic farm, and as a husband and wife team we use our time to continue to enhance the farms products and our guests experience.

I am Maltese and worked for most of my life in Malta, only moving to Tuscany in 2019. I had always wanted to have somewhere that would allow guests to enjoy Tuscany, Our organic farm produces organic extra virgin olive oil and IGT and DOCG wine. I like to invite others to stay with us and help them enjoy the beautiful countryside of Maremma that surrounds us. We are lucky to live in a beautiful unspoilt area well known for its scenic views and quaint country and hilltop villages. We are surrounded by olive groves and vineyards and we both look forward to seeing you here soon.
It was a big move to create a new life in Tuscany with Marthese after bieng married for over 25 years and living and working in Malta. We relocated so we could start our agriturismo and organic farm together, now I get to work with my talented wife and our team to make sure the farm estate is sustainable, bio-organic and accessible to all who wish to stay. If you enjoy the Italian lifestyle, nature, Tuscany, food, wine and relaxing we look forward to seeing you soon.
