We produce Tuscan olive oil PGI – EU Protected Geographical Indication – in an area that has always been devoted to the production of high-quality extra virgin olive oil. We are a three-generation family farm, combining tradition and innovation.
The headquarters of our farm are in an ancient villa, which has been inhabited since the Middle Ages. One of our ancestors, official and minister of the Grand Duke of Tuscany, chose it as his country residence from the second half of the 18th century.
Imagine living in the Tuscany of a few centuries ago, in a villa of an elegance and splendour of past times! This is what visitors feel while entering our residence, surrounded by an enchanting Italian garden, a perfect place to enjoy moments of peace and relaxation. This place represents the true essence of Tuscany, combining elegant furniture with the green and lush of the outside.
Our family lives on the ground floor of the villa, while we have dedicated the noble floor to a luxury farmhouse consisting of two flats, both of almost 100 square metres, where you can enjoy a splendid view of the hills and the olive groves that are typical of this area south of Florence.
