We moved on in silence and I felt, in that unfamiliar landscape, incredibly and inexplicably at home.
There must be shared memories in all creatures, genuine dreams that reawaken at just the right moment.

Enzo Fileno Carabba, Voragini
The Three Bees


In the Chianti region of Tuscany, near the medieval town of Barberino Val D'Elsa, midway between Siena and Florence.

The farm is situated in the Elsa Valley, on the northern slope of the historic pilgrim route Via Francigena and of the Elsa River.

It is nestled in the Scheto Valley, overlooking the Agliena Stream, which flows into the Elsa and Arno rivers.

The landscape's rich medieval past abounds with legendary figures such as Arnolfo di Cambio, Francesco da Barberino, Dante Alighieri, Francesco Petrarch, Giovanni Boccaccio and Andrea da Barberino.
