Peccioli farmhouse description

The agriturism has 4 houses, all located in the middle of the hills, 5 or 10 minutes walk from the Ghizzano Village, through olive trees. Initially, its belonged to the farmer, and thus the name “The Colonial House”. It is usual for such a house to be located at one side or in the centre of a field called “podere”. The “Podere” was a piece of land given by the owner to the peasant : the crop was divided among them in equal parts. This system was very common in the late Middle Ages and was called “Mezzadria”.
the houses were built on one side of the of land (podere). This allowed people to get to the main road easier and allowed easy access of the crop wagons to get to the market.
It was our grand grandfather who, by the middle of the 19th century, built these houses and named the places after the patron saint of the crops. Thus came to life “Casa poderale Il Monte & Santa Giulia”. Casa Poderale' San Prospero' .The Gamekeeper''s house : today called Casa Guardia .
