FOOD PHILOSOPHY ~ Everyday, delicious two-course breakfasts are created, including freshly baked homemade sourdough bread. At sunrise, breakfast ingredients are selected from the organic gardens and fruit orchards, and these are combined with the best produce sourced from small, local organic producers. Jams, honey, fruits and vegetables are from the vegetable garden and organic eggs are kindly supplied by Follonico’s free-range chickens and ducks. Follonico offers also the chance to have farm-to-table dinner onsite, a couple of times a week and upon reservation.
COMMITMENT TO SUSTAINABILITY ~ “Sustainability is about running in the sun and relaxing in the rain” Fabio and Suzanne, owners of Follonico share with their guests a timeless and seasonal way of living. Follonico invite you to slow down, take it easy, doing less while discovering more and if you are willing to have a conversation you will learn a lot just by having a chat with Fabio and Suzanne at breakfast or enjoying a glass of wine with them at sunset. Following the rhythm of nature is the principle at the basis of Follonico’s philosophy as well as finding a balance with the natural elements in a spirit of coexistence rather than pure consumption.
