No place is better than others but there are places
that manage to move you more than others;
rediscover the scents that nature has to offer in spring,
enjoy the sound of crickets on summer nights,
fill your eyes with the warm colours of autumn,
take long walks through the woods under the warm winter sun;
these are the moments when the greatest joy is to discover
that we are a part of this nature.

the Green project
The colour green is a symbol of life and regeneration. Our house is surrounded by green; we are convinced that this green is the most precious thing we have and that it is our responsibility to preserve it with the utmost care and respect.
WHAT WE DO?
We have chosen to look to the future with a positive attitude, creating it for our children, with our children. That is why we have made small decisions based on common sense and goodwill so as to limit our impact on the planet and on the environment as much as possible.
CLEAN SOIL AND ORGANIC PRODUCTS
On our farm, all the plants and products grown on our land are strictly organic, controlled by the ICEA (Environmental and Ethical Certification Institute). Besides the satisfaction of our high-quality olive oil and wine, this choice has allowed us to care for the health of our family and our guests, who may stay in a cleaner environment, as well as to respect the environment and the animals we hope will remain intact even in the future.
Inside our home and the enclosed spaces of the farm smoking is forbidden, to protect the health of our guests and our family, to safeguard both non-smokers as well as the cleanliness of the air. In the bedrooms, where we spend approximately a third of our lives, plants particularly suited to ensuring more oxygenated and purified air are used. We are located at an altitude of around 300 meters above sea level, where fine particles and fog struggle to reach.
In our bathrooms we have installed fixtures that use 30% less water than average. We avoid using bottled water for our daily needs in order to limit the use of plastic containers and related transport, since our water comes from good quality aqueduct. We have also created a system that uses rainwater to water the garden.
SEPARATE WASTE COLLECTION
Throughout our farm we have adopted separate waste collection, giving preference to recycled materials as much as possible.
To heat our farm, we have chosen to use heat pumps that run on renewable electricity. We wish to further improve by installing a photovoltaic system as soon as paperwork will allow. For our family, on the other hand, we have chosen a wood stove that burns wood collected when cleaning our woods and a pellet stove, from a strictly certified source.
Most of the light bulbs installed are energy saving, this has allowed us to not waste energy and limit consumption by at least 50%; all rooms are equipped with a system that blocks the flow of hot/cold air in case doors or windows are opened to the outside.
When purchasing furniture, fixtures and accessories, we have always sought to favour products with a certified origin, for example wood coming from plantations and not deforestation.
