Marisa and Alberto Grimelli give yourselves the welcome (and accompany
yourselves, with liking, in this journey). We live in Suvereto,
a small medieval village, that we see there opposite, surrounded
by olive trees and vineyards. Hence the look spaces and frames the
sea of Punta Ala, Elba’s island, the Val of Cornia and the
hills of Massa Marittima and a lot of lights indicate countries
and distant houses during the nights.
We do not inhabit here from always. There we arrive after a pawned
and gratifying life, but frenetic, lived in the town. Our choice,
caused from a desire of serenity and natural rhythms, carried us
to the Podere La Sassaia. This farm, after a long period of neglected
caused by the old peasants, was restored by us, with engagement
and obstinacy, respecting its tuscany characteristics, with stone,
trusses and little beams of chestnut wood and brick to see.
Alberto, the son, agronomist and specialised in olive oil, supported
us with enthusiasm and professionalism. Today on the ours demoting
terraces the olive trees stand out. We can smell every day the perfumes
of the “Macchia Mediterranea”: rosemary, myrtle, lavanda,
and you could see some beautiful rainbow after rare and short thunderstorms.
The ours it’s a small, peaceful agriturismo (rented holiday
house) with a friendly atmosphere.
The apartments were created from the main house and a small country
one and were named as some kinds (varietas) of olive trees that
grow in our farm (Leccino, Frantoio and Moraiolo). They are furnished
with care, each it is independent and different by the other and
everyone have privacy, also in the private outside space.
We like, if you will want get some information about olive trees
and olive oil, to teach you all we know and to explain you the charming
world of Extra Virgin Olive Oil.
