Our Story - Our Passions

Our Story 

The adventure began back in 2000 when we decided to revert back to the real values and experiences of nature and make an important change in our lifestyle.  We moved from our city life environment in Chianti and began the restoration of a rural farmhouse and garden with great enthusiasm. 


 

The Garden: Harmony for the soul

A great passion for botany and the advice of friends led Laura to create a garden suited to a dry climate, in continual bloom throughout the whole year, naturally in tune with the vines and olive groves of the surrounding  landscape.  Her passion for antique roses, which she has cultivated for a number of years, has also allowed her to add a delicate, evocative touch to the rustic ambiance.
