It is a challenge to host friends and visitors in as popular an area as the Val D’Orcia, in Southern Tuscany, without straining the environment and disrupting the life of the community.
On the other hand, exploring new terrains, meeting people who have different life-styles, discovering the artistic and architectural treasures of a territory, indulging in the artisanal and culinary talents of its population and in the delicious produce of its land are enjoyable ways to widen our horizon and build ties with others.
“…personally knowing sites that have a high natural and cultural value is an important prerequisite for preserving and protecting them.”
When we travel with curiosity and candidness, we learn about the world, its people and ourselves. Moreover, personally knowing sites that have a high natural and cultural value is an important prerequisite for preserving and protecting them.
That is why at Podere Trafonti we are determined to practice hospitality and agriculture in an ethical and virtuous manner, with interest and respect for the natural environment, the territory, its animals and wildlife, its inhabitants and their culture.
“We invite you to travel with us and to let us benefit from your knowledge and experience.”
We are striving to use resources responsibly and efficiently, regenerate the land and be of value to the local community. We wish to create an environment, where we, our guests, the people who work here and around us and our natural surroundings can enjoy each other’s company and be enriched by shared experiences.
It’s a journey, and we are far from having reached the goal. We invite you to travel with us and to let us benefit from your knowledge and experience.
