How would you describe Ebbio in a nutshell?
Ebbio is an organic farm from the 13th century set among the rolling hills of Tuscany. We tried to keep the agriturismo as original and authentic as we could, so you can really experience the old way of living in this beautiful countryside. It’s a simple life with the pleasures of nature and the beauty of the landscapes.
How would you describe the atmosphere at Ebbio?
Ebbio is the experience of countryside living. When you’re here you can find calm, tranquility and joy. We have a lot of pets and animals – donkeys, horses, ducks, chickens – and being a vegetarian-friendly place, the animals are happy. They like to interact with the guests and everyone here is very tranquil because of it.
Staying at Ebbio is an authentic experience. All of the floors are the in its original state, built in the 13th century. You see and feel the authenticity and it’s true to the naturalistic qualities of old century. When you close your eyes and think about Tuscany, it should closely resemble what you’ve imagined. Since this is an antique farm, the place is not too groomed – to keep it in its most natural state.
We have a lot of gathering areas at Ebbio but there are also areas where you can escape to and be by yourself. The property is very big so you can find peace and tranquility when you are here. Time stops once you’re here.
What was your inspiration to open the agriturismo?
In 1989, my mother wanted to escape from the city because she wanted to find a place to develop her passion and share it with people that were interested in country living. This is why we’re an organic farm because she was very mindful of what she ate. She believes being vegetarian is healthy for the body but also mindful to the planet. Simply put, we wanted a peaceful life and have people to come share this experience with us.
For what kind of guests is Ebbio best suited for?
Everyone can enjoy Ebbio – everyone from kids (as it is a private and safe place for them to play) to groups of friends (who can enjoy activities together such as wine tastings and horseback riding). Ebbio be the perfect place for people who are mindful towards nature because of the background and history of the property. My mother wanted to create a place for health and wellness and those who are mindful of that will get the best experience from Ebbio.
