WHERE ~ Montepulciano
BEMYJOURNEY’S EXPERIENCE ~ “Being surrounded by vineyards and a sense of peace, Fattoria San Martino offers a regenerative travel experience, only a few minutes’ drive from the historic town of Montepulciano. When I visited this farm, I was very inspired by the way of living of Antonio and Karin, the owners, and I wish you could enjoy a chat with them while sipping a glass of wine with a golden sunset over the vineyards in the background.” Andrea

WHAT TO EXPECT ~ “Every day we work to build a place where it is possible to meet people, see a flower blooming, understand that mother earth is alive, that the quality of food changes our mood and that all the elements that surround us compose the quality of our being.” When Karin and Antonio moved from Milan to Tuscany and bought this 18th-century villa, they dreamt of a life full of natural beauty and rural bliss. Quality of life is the essence of Fattoria San Martino, where everything is unique as the result of the endless creativity of Karin and Antonio and their ability to experience the unusual. All the products used at the Fattoria are selected to ensure you have a unique and invigorating stay. In the guesthouse, breakfast is served using organic produce sourced or farmed locally. Fattoria San Martino includes a five-hectare farm producing its own olive oil as well as fresh vegetables and fruit. From sleeping to eating to the quality of furnishings and gardens, everything is designed to allow your mind and body to regain balance and calm. The villa has six suites with private bathrooms, a small vegan/vegetarian restaurant, a big garden and a natural pool. Prices start from 205 euro per night.
FOOD PHILOSOPHY ~ Karin and Antonio serve you fresh and happy food that either grows from their own organic farming or is bought from local producers; cereals for homemade pasta, olive oil, vegetables, wild local herbs, aromatic herbs and spices. The plant-based vegetarian restaurant offers delicious vegetarian and vegan cuisine as well as a high-quality selection of organic wines and local beers. Here, you can eat outside on the terraces with a view either of Montepulciano or to the Tuscany hills, or inside to immerse yourself in a warm and creative atmosphere.
COMMITMENT TO SUSTAINABILITY ~ Fattoria San Martino has been an organic farm since 1992. Karin and Antonio, who teach environmental education and sustainability in schools and universities, have developed their own circular economy: the horses “produce” fertiliser, the bees pollinate, they have olive trees, fruit groves, official herbs, part of a forest and they also produce their own grains and legumes. The villa was restored through ecological building practices and here they use homoeopathic products to treat plants and animals. The onsite natural pool does not require chemical treatment to be cleaned and the staff use only eco-friendly and biodegradable cleaning products to clean the spaces, linens and towels. 60% of Fattoria San Martino is almost fully self-sufficient, the energy is produced by photovoltaic panels and they have solar panels to produce hot water in summer, whereas in winter hot water is generated through wood and pellet heaters. Fattoria San Martino offers art activities to encourage the up-cycling of raw materials, and all art and design pieces in the Villa were created through the recycling of old furniture. teach environmental education and sustainability in schools and universities owns a sustainability (organic producer) certification by ICEA
