Tomatoes and peppers

While the B&B stays close, more time is devoted to growing vegetables and citrus. It takes months to get the ending results, but more time yields better qualities. No classrooms, no chemicals, just mowing the lawn.

Can you name the fruits and vegetables from the look of their plants? Enlarge the pictures or read caption! Enjoy.

Due to COVID19 travel disruption, I decided to stay close for business this Summer. In a time when people has limited budget, flights are grounded and social distancing is key to avoid spreading the virus, I will open the door to my close friends and former guests, so do not hesitate to contact me and book few days to have some quality time spent together, yet respectful of social distancing rules


Activities we can safely run together will include both swimming and kayaking, but also BBQing some fresh organic vegetables from the farm, and yes of course I would be delighted to guide you through the Primo Passo water mill.

Let’s have fun, because we deserve it!

Organic as a way of living

As our accommodation business is locked down and cancellations continue as deep as next June, I am on the field. This friday video shows how I clear the lemon grove off the grass without chemicals. Such machineries come at a cost, with no subsidy, but the benefit for the health and safety of the microsystem we lived is evident. Zero waste, as the weet is finely crunched and soiled as extra nutrition for the lemon trees. And the nectar the bees loose from poppies are quickly replaced by more lemon blossom.

Dear fellow,

after listining to Her Majesty’s speech yesterday, I came to the conclusion to suspend the Bed&Breakfast activity until further notice. This comes as a safety measure for both you and me. There is an appropriate time for everything and this is the time to #stayhome, stay safe.

On the contrary, organic food delivery continues with no restrictions other than the high delivery costs for exporting out of Italy (i.e. 30 euros for anything up to 30kg). Drop an email if you are keen to support this project.

Pictures and videos will continue to be posted here throughout Summer, even more frequently than usual to remain closer with all of you, while we keep the distance.

As Her Majesty said “we will meet again”. Arrivederci,


#quarantine we stay close, to get closer.

Sunday organic brunch

Italy is stranded because of coronavirus covid19, and so are we. We are not opening the season today.

But bad times could come for good sometimes. So I am experimenting new food process with my same organic farm ingredients. Guess what it is around the wood tablet. The well known olive oil from 2019, but also the dough milled with stoned from the wheat from last summer, some fresh water flavoured with lemon skin hand picked yesterday and some left over of yesterday home baked bread… and I forgot the original marmalade from wild oranges, with skin, as it should always be. Alone now, to welcome you all later! Arrivederci until further notice, Giuseppe
