Le Capanne

Sustainable Agritourism

ECO-PHILOSOPHY

At the Le Capanne organic farm we are joyfully committed to harmonising our life with Nature and treading as lightly as possible in an “ecological journey” that is developing step by step. We try to minimise our impact on the environment by reducing consumption, reusing, recycling and valuing quality over quantity. We share this attitude with our guests, most of whom have become friends during the nearly thirty years of hospitality in our family’s house since it was renovated as an agriturismo.

ECO-PRACTICES

Organic Farming

We practise organic farming. This is our contribution to protection of the environment and enhancement of the land.

We welcome our guests with a “zero miles” welcome basket with locally grown, organic and biodynamic products. This is our contribution to support sustainable local practices

Sustainable furniture

Our guests can relax in apartments furnished with our great-grandparents’ restored furniture, with its own character and charm. This is our contribution to promote reuse instead of new consumption, to avoid waste.

The towels we provide for guests are (almost) always made of organic cotton. This is our contribution to the promotion of enhanced wellbeing for us and our planet.

The apartments are lit with LED bulbs. This is our contribution to saving energy. We have installed flow reducers to the taps. This is our contribution to saving water.

Economically and technologically sustainable

Our web site is hosted by “Hosting Sostenibile”, a sustainable webfarm powered with solar energy. This is our contribution to reduce our carbon footprint.

We have created various “eco-options”. This is our contribution to make travelling more sustainable, both ecologically and economically. If you too believe that sustainability and saving can be combined, find out more about the “eco-options”.

THE AGRITURISMO

The Le Capanne agriturismo was originally our great grandparents’ traditional stone farmhouse. The agriturismo contains only three apartments (Maria, Amelia, Andreina) to ensure a comfortable and exclusive holiday. They are fully furnished and each has a fireplace, satellite TV, private outside space and self-contained entrance

WE GIVE IMPORTANCE TO OUR ORIGINS

We are setting up a small “farming museum” with a collection of farming and domestic implements that tell the story of country life in Tuscany over the last century. This is our contribution to preserve and hand down our traditions.

NATURAL WELLBEING

At Le Capanne agriturismo you can deeply inhale the peace offered by Nature. It may not be luxurious here, but there is simple comfort for your health and wellbeing: aromas, landscapes, sounds, tranquillity. Hopefully they will help you reconnect with your inner rhythm and rediscover true wellbeing.
