JKM-1028 Estate with biodynamic agriculture and prosperous accommodation activity with restaurant in Tuscany
The property is located few kilometres from Cortona and from Arezzo, in the southern part of Tuscany. It consists of 15 hectares of land with organic agriculture since 1994 and recently introduced biodynamic method plus a series of buildings used as private residence, self-catering apartments, restaurant and wine cellar.
The villa, which is the biggest building, is divided into the residence of the owners, three apartments, kitchen, restaurant and wine tasting space.
The second building has other three apartments, second kitchen, technical room and laundry.
The fully equipped wine producing and ageing cellar measures 340 sq.m. on three levels.
Further buildings and sheds are used to store agricultural machinery and equipment.
Owners’ residence has a sitting room, eat-in-kitchen, office, four bedrooms and bathroom (180 sq.m.). All six self-catering apartments measure 250 sq.m. with 8 bedrooms and six bathrooms for the total of 24 guests. Each apartment has its own outside space.
The buildings are surrounded by well-maintained garden with 14x6 mt. swimming pool.
15 hectares of land are divided into 5 hectares of vineyards in full production, 4.5 ha of olive groves with 1300 trees, 4 hectares of woods, 8500 ha of arable land used mostly as vegetable garden and 5000 sq.m. of lawn and garden.
Seven IGT Toscana wines and DOC vinsanto are produced from the locally grown four types of grapes. The production is about 15,500 bottles of wine per year. As for the olive oil, approximately 1500 litres of excellent product are made each year. Other products as honey (about 100 kg/year), vegetable and fruits are used by the owners, local restaurant and the guests, who are welcome to use them.
If required, the overall income could be increased in several ways. There is another building ready to accommodate further 8 guests, reaching the capacity of 32 persons. The activity is now open to public six months each year and this period can be increased. The restaurant, with a simple modification of the authorization, could serve more people. Also, production of wine could be increased buying organic grapes from local farmers. The winery capacity is higher than the number of grapes produced on the farm.
It was the personal choice of the owners to limit the activity and spend some time travelling around the world. The six months activity and amount of wine produced is enough for their needs.
It is a quiet place where one gets to know better the nature and countryside life in the best edition.
