La Grotta

On a hill dotted with olive trees, vineyards and woods, an agriturismo in harmony with the environment.

When we moved to this hill almost the entire territory of the farm had been abandoned and the wood was in a poor state; the idea of opening an agriturismo is born mainly to finance the costs of maintaining the olive groves and of the normal management of the structure; the excellent response of the guests pushed us to improve the tourist offer, however applying technologies that would allow us to use our own resources for energy management.

The following ideas came to our mind: the idea of using a wood gasifier of the latest generation for heating and hot water production using the wood of the farm; the idea of collecting rainwater to irrigate the orchards and the idea to use photovoltaic plants with storage systems of the last generation to ensure the production of electricity.

Meanwhile agricultural production has been converted to organic methods guaranteeing an overall improvement of the health status of the area.

Altogether up to now about six hectares of abandoned olive groves have been recovered; the next step will be to save the wood from deterioration and to create naturalist trails.
