Agrivilla i pini

  • Farm house
Località Santa Margherita, 37 - 53037 San Gimignano - Siena - Italy

We are Agrivilla i pini, a one of a kind eco-vegan Agrivilla (Italy’s first) located in the heart of Tuscany, Italy. Specialising in providing a unique experience of serenity and peacefulness along with sustainability and compassion.

Nestled on a hill amongst Mediterranean cypresses, olive groves, and vineyards in the
heart of Tuscany between Florence and Siena, you will find a petite organic haven. Our
ecologically renovated 15th century Agrivilla is situated off the beaten track of the
medieval town of San Gimignano, a UNESCO world heritage site.

You will find yourselves carried away to a sanctuary graced with exquisitely beautiful
Tuscan landscapes and wonderfully interesting flora and fauna. The splendours of nature
that will surround you will present the perfect opportunity to disconnect from the hustle
and bustle of daily life whilst consciously enjoying our peaceful and tranquil environment.
You will be greeted and served by our caring, energetic, and friendly team who will
endeavour to look after you with positive energy and kindness and meet your every need
- truly a warm and heartfelt hospitality experience.

Onsite we have a zero-waste restaurant and wellness bar which is unapologetically
organic, vegan, and sustainable. Our experienced and talented plant-based chefs create
delicious culinary delights with the focus on fresh and clean ingredients whilst staying true
to our Italian roots. Specialising in foraged wild herbs and hand picked treasures from our
own food forest. Local, organic, and seasonal produce, raw food, gluten and sugar free
fare. Our creative and delectable vegan cuisine will inspire and satiate your every need for
both breakfast and dinner. This is what you can expect - innovative, healthy, natural, and
wholesome food.

In the rooms you will be immersed in a pleasant and relaxing silence giving them the
opportunity to admire the artistic and ecologically friendly elements in your abode. Using
natural and sustainable materials; such as: chalk, clay, hemp, wood, and linen, we create
an elegant interior and rely on the simplicity of nature to do the rest. Our unique rooms
feature recycled materials which are carefully selected to bring nature, charm, and history
into each room. Handmade terracotta tiles fired in a wood stove using traditional
methods and restored antique furniture from the 18th century bestow beautiful accents
from the past. A high-quality, biodegradable, and plant-based mattress combined with a
temperature-equalising Tencel duvet and organic cotton fair-trade pillows provide guests
with a unique harmonious sleeping experience. We have really gone the extra mile to
consider every detail.

It is extremely important to us to offer you a detoxifying and healing oasis; we do this not
only through our food and beverages but also the environment through which we
interact. Our swimming pool is free from harmful chemicals; such as chlorine, and instead
we use salt water, which additionally is environmentally friendly. All soaps in the rooms are
vegan and organic for your additional well-being. We also realised the need when on
vacation to have a digital detox to truly disconnect, therefore, wifi is not available in
rooms. However, it is available in the dining room and outside on our terrace which
overlooks the majestic town of San Gimignano.

We offer a range of engaging and interesting classes for you; including wine and cheese
tasting with our qualified expert. Cooking classes with our native Italian Head Chef who
has over 14 years of plant-based culinary experience. And a tour of our premises giving
you the opportunity to interact with our permaculture specialist and try a selection of the
hand-made items that we produce here at i pini; which include: natural wines, olive oil,
breads, activated and raw vegan cheeses, dehydrated crackers, and homemade chutneys
and jams.

It is our mission here at i pini to protect our wondrous planet and one of the means by
which we do this is through championing sustainability; which we do this in some of the
following ways: the water for the villa is heated solely by solar energy, electricity on the
other hand is 100% provided by renewable energy sources and is guaranteed nuclear
free. All cleaning products at i pini are biodegradable, vegan, and organic, whilst our
laundry is air dried. We gather precious water for our organic garden from rainfall and we
have created hotels for insects and shelter for bees, bats and butterflies, since all of them
are very important for us human beings. We practice composting here to create a nutrient
rich soil conditioner for our gardens and farming. Not to mention that we are also in the
process of creating a permaculture food forest which will allow your five senses to be
engaged as you interact with the beauties of nature.

Whatever you are looking for, whether it be relaxation and serenity, detox, healing, and
rejuvenation, or a place to feel one with nature and to be inspired, i pini is the perfect
place for you …
