Via Puligno-Migliarino 140 - Localita Migliarino - 50033 Firenzuola - Florence - Italy

Immersed in the mountains of Mugello, lies this farm of ancient times. Our family tries to carry out his life following the rhythms of nature; the most environmentally friendly as possible and on the principle dell'autosostentamento.

This old farm, located on one of the oldest streets of communication between Florence and Bologna,
tries to offer a style of rural life, with simplicity, in accordance with the nature appreciating its scan of time and seasons. Is the time to grooming the horses as well as goats and chickens and then see if the geese have laid an egg, all while the dogs accompany us on morning rounds with the donkey. Depending on the time you are the vegetable garden or wood .... but also freshen the river is very welcome, a walk to fungi as a collection of radicchio or seasonal gems. You can spend time in the kitchen preparing jams or sauces, it is sensible to a turn in the bike as on foot .... maybe blackberries or raspberries. Or maybe it's time to check the fences, or maybe you need a break, and we do a tour of the mountains on foot, on horseback, with the enduro or one of the 4x4 (strictly historical) where you can enjoy breathtaking views; or maybe the workshop calls us with something that needs a bit of care, it is to be repaired or built .... from tractor to the wind turbine, the stone mill to spelled the pedal machine, biogas with dung horses to solar panels, from using the water of the spring surplus to create a temperature-controlled room (7/10 ° winter summer) to create a stove with a gas bottle ... or a storage stove in clay to build.
We chose a lifestyle where children can do home schooling if they like it, we believe in the barter of material as time sharing, recycling has been what has allowed us to restructure this farm as well as all materials that we were able to find on the spot. The two sources that sustain water along the forest for firewood (where of course we prefer to clean the wood from the dry, which is immense, indeed that cut off the trees) have a forgotten that wealth .... accompanied by three systems thermal / solar electric panels give a nice comfort (all obviously "do it yourself"). Here blends nature with good technology; we try to bring to zero the costs as far as possible always trying to exploit the best compromise (the biofuel to the LEDs), and often with little you can not get much. And it is this vision that we are making this place self-sustaining, it makes no sense to sacrifice time and money to fill up with futile convenience if the choice can be a viable organization with a minimum of good old the freedom to choose what to do rightfully school of their time . Maybe dedicating it to what more we can meet, learn about the plants, learn about the gifts that nature makes available to our needs and how to exploit them.
For us it is a pleasure to share this experience, and in addition to fantastic relaxation in the place always pleases an exchange of experiences.
Here the sheets are always clean but not ironed, the homemade pasta is made with eggs from our chickens and spelled this valley, water is our source of our electricity is solar panels, wood that warms the water comes from these forests and if there's meat on the table is the product of an exchange with a breeder and / or a hunter, wine and vegetables that are not produced by us come from nearby farms. ...
