Rooms in Tuscany, Charming Organic Country house

Bedrooms 6
Space 538 sq. ft.
Property type farmhouse


About the property

7 rooms all with private entrance and bathroom

This historic home was a Customs House in the 17th century where those who crossed the border between the Papal State and the Grand Duchy of Tuscany, stopped in search of refreshment.

Sant'Egle therefore has remained so- a place to rest, seek refreshment, meet friends, and have interesting encounters between unexpected travelers. Sant'Egle is also an organic 400 mq farm with zero environmental impact and winner of the first prize for best “agriturismo” in Italy in regards to sustainability and conservation of biodiversity.  All products are vegan, gluten-free and Cruelty Free. Our bio-pool is 100% natural.

100% of the electricity used is produced from renewable sources. Wastewater and rainwater are recycled for watering the synergistic garden. The heating and hot water are produced by the fireplace heating system, and solar water heaters.

We are city people who have chosen to live in the Tuscan Maremma since 2010, moving from Florence and Varese. We felt the need for a happy descent to a place where the quality of life, of the air and of our nourishment become the focal point of a happy and healthy life.

We live here in Sant'Egle throughout the year, and this is our home. Visit our space, where you will see the memories, objects, and books of our lives that with pleasure we have decided to share with our guests.

We like repairing, recycling in art, the use of shared things, and composting everything that consumerism would have you throw away. We do not like the waste of food, or objects. Because of this we cook daily for guests, only upon request, using only fresh organic products mainly grown at Sant’Egle or other nearby organic farms.

We organize synergistic agriculture courses, cooking classes, eco events and we host art exhibitions.

About erika

We are city people who have decided to return to live in the country. We respect the environment with small daily gestures.

In our house we only use solar energy to heat water and to illuminate rooms.

We grow and offer for your breakfast and meals only organic products.

We compost and recycle all our waste. From wastewater to kitchen scraps.

This place is suitable for those who love nature and respect it at 360 °

erika purchased this farmhouse in 1600

Why erika chose Sorano

Our house is near the splendid medieval towns of Sorano and Pitigliano, a little ways from the Baths of Sorano (Terme di Sorano), in the province of Grosseto, in Maremma Tuscany, Italy.

This is a strategic place to visit many places far from mass tourism.

It's spa area where you can swim in 5 different warm waters with miraculous powers. Known until the time of the Etruscans and Romans.

Perfect location for day trips to cities, villages and beautiful natural parks such as Orvieto, Civita di Bagnoregio, Lake Bolsena, Monte Amiata, Uccellina National Park and much more.

What makes this farmhouse unique

If you are looking for peace place, with Bio Pool, tranquility, natural beauty, rich history and legends, quality of life, sleep, palate, this is a magical place to spend an exclusive holiday in Tuscany.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Ciao Erika and Alessandro,

greetings from Philadelphia.

We have returned from our European travels and settled into a lovely apartment in our old neighborhood.

Just in time for sping to bloom in full force.

While we settle back into work and life here, we often dream of Italia... the beautiful country side near Sant'Egle, delisious first press olive oil, and of course the teo of you (and Gina and Olivia). We hope to make it back in the near future. If you find yourself with an opporunity to visit the East Coast of U.S., please come visit us here:

Charlie has continued his pasta -making, and recently started some oil with peperoncino too.

Last nights dinner was simple fresh pasta, wich made us think of you.

Thank you both for be so kind, welcoming and thoughtful during our time at Sant'Egle.

The adeventures were more then we coud have hoped for, and it was especially wonderful towards the end of many months of travel.

Your frinedshop and gracious hospitality are unmatched.

Please stay in touch!

Tante belle cose.

We stayed in Sant'Egle during Eastern time. It has been a very relaxing time. Erika and Alessandro are very kind and they produce very good products.

The dinner also is very very good and healthy.

there are many old center to visti in the surroundings. I certainly suggest an holiday to Sant'Egle.
