Family narrative

Ours is a tale woven through generations,
a story rooted in love for this cherished place that has guided our family’s choices throughout the years.
It is a narrative etched into the very walls, the vast fields, and the orderly rows of vines that define our estate.

The valley itself has been a dwelling place since the time of the ancient Etruscans, with evidence discovered during agricultural activities in the surrounding fields attesting to its historical significance.
The core of our property, comprising the manor house and tower, dates back to the 1600s, while the earliest documented record in our possession, from 1820, meticulously depicts the house and land in preparation for a change of ownership.

In 1862, the great-grandfather of our present owner acquired the estate, augmenting it with two farmhouses and ground-floor warehouses for agricultural use.
Further expansions occurred in 1871 and 1874 through the acquisition of ecclesiastical property auctioned by the newly formed Italian State, seized from the now non-existent Papal State.

The entire property transitioned to the son, a medical professional turned dedicated agriculturist, who earned accolades for the quality of the olive oil produced.
Subsequently, the house passed to the grandson, the current custodian of our legacy. Deeply attached to the place where he spent his childhood during the war years, he undertook renovations in the 1970s, rejuvenating both the house and the surrounding 25-hectare land.
In keeping with family tradition, the grandson expanded the olive groves and planted 8 hectares of vineyards, upholding the legacy that has shaped our identity for generations.

Unveiling our journey

Embark on a journey from our roots to the present as we share the tale of our restoration journey. Our commitment has been to enhance the original structure, preserving the essence of where our story begins.
The transformation includes the creation of a serene swimming pool in the former vegetable gardens, and in 2011, the revival of the former sharecroppers’ dwellings and farm warehouses, crafting an elegant and tranquil Relais seamlessly integrated into the authentic agricultural landscape.

Our suites, adorned with top-quality materials, have undergone meticulous refurbishment, ensuring every detail exudes excellence.

Breakfast comes served outdoors in the summer, while in winter it finds its ideal setting in a bright room once used as a greenhouse (former lemon house).
The old stable it is now a relaxation room available to guests who want to take the time to dedicate, for example, to leafing through the many volumes and books in our library.

In our pursuit of excellence, we enlisted the expertise of top professionals in architecture and lighting, fashioning an exclusive environment where our guests can relish a truly unique experience.
