We are Silvia and Paolo, your host!
We first saw Podere Salicotto on a late summer afternoon 12 years ago. It was love at first sight, thanks to that golden light of the setting sun that reflected on the old tiles of the crumbling farmhouse. We were on a new adventure. Yet the unpredictable happened, as it is true of any love story, we were, we thought confirmed city dwellers! Brick by brick, year on year Podere Salicotto evolved.
Taking care of Podere Salicotto meant for us, a new life, another job, abandoning old habits and ways of thinking, while being wrapped up in the tranquil silence with the occasional cricket for company.
We have learnt to appreciate things, which are today forgotten in city life; the stars, the fireflies and the moon. The sounds of nature alert us when the quiet winter has passed and spring has arrived: the buzz and chatter of the insects, the mating calls of bucks, the trill of larks. The air every season has a different fragrance which gives the sense of being very alive.
The next big change was our concept of time. When we lived in the city every moment was occupied and scheduled. Here time has acquired a new dimension. It is not an external element against which we have to do battle rather, it is an internal rhythm that reflects nature and the movements of our day, the weather and the seasons. Nature reminds us each day that everything matures according to the elements. We can do our best to prepare and plant the garden but can only wait and hope that the fruit will grow.
We welcome you to our world where you can fall in love like we did again and again.
