Il Cerreto

Pomarance (Pisa), Tuscany, Italy

Paola and Carlo Brivio have moved from the countryside to the heart of Tuscany to help their children grow up in nature and to find more contact with their original life. They have studied the teachings of Rudolf Steiner and have begun to turn their farm into a living agricultural organism according to their methods and ideas.

No sooner had Italy passed the law in 1991, which included the introduction of the institution "Agriturismo", her estate "Il Cerreto" was declared as such. Gradually, the children grew up and Il Cerreto has become the welcoming harmonious place that he is now.

From the typical Tuscan architecture, to the many cozy lounges inside and out, to the crystal clear waters of the natural swimming pond and the simple but all the more delicious dishes that come straight from the garden to the table. Authentic Tuscan country life and honest hospitality that can do little to promote the guests as a true holiday pleasure and real relaxation.

ArchitectureThe guest area of Il Cerreto is housed in some of the oldest buildings in the estate. Here everything was restored in ecological construction and rebuilt to create an ideal indoor climate. Traditional terracotta floors and wall colors typical of the region underline the Tuscan architectural style of the estate with its towering tower, which houses the largest of the guest apartments.

FoodEvery morning there are bread, cakes and other products from our own production or fresh from the garden on the breakfast buffet. At lunchtime there are a few light meals in the "garden restaurant", from what the vegetable garden has to offer and what the locals would prepare themselves. Maybe even "experienced Italian cooks" can make new discoveries. For dinner, a daily changing vegetarian menu is prepared. All ingredients come from our own or from the direct environment and are 100% organic. On request, vegan dishes are also prepared.

In the Agriturismo Il Cerreto people from the surrounding area and also always people from all over the world, who can get an insight into the biodynamic ways of cultivation and philosophy of life after Rudolf Steiner. All employees have a monthly team training with a coach open and who works here gets free food and lodging.

EnvironmentBiodynamic lifestyle means giving back to nature as much as you take it and respectfully treat it. According to this philosophy, agriculture is practiced in Cerreto, directed according to the phases of the moon and the ideas of Rudolf Steiner. And of course, everywhere else in everyday life, measures for a sustainable way of life are used. Among other things, electricity is generated, hot water is generated by solar power, water is saved where possible and of course only bio-cleaning agents are used. Disposable products and outer packaging are avoided and guests are informed about the possibilities of a sustainable and resource-saving lifestyle in everyday life. The employees receive training on the topic The water in the natural swimming pool clean boulders, zeolites and water lilies naturally.

Well-BeingAlready the first chirping of the cicadas and croaking of the frogs, let the tense nerves of the relaxation-seeking vacationers immediately noticeably switch to "vacation". Add to that the lush Tuscan flora and the Italian way of life that almost leads to complete relaxation. Finally, there is also the natural swimming pond with water lilies and crystal clear pebbles and plants purified water. For the ultimate harmonization of body mind and soul, the pavilion in the middle of nature also offers yoga lessons for the guests.
