This historic home was Customs in 1600 where those who crossed the border between the Papal States and the Grand Duchy of Tuscany, stopped in search of refreshment. The charm of a historic home so rich in legends has been carefully restored and is the destination for those looking for an exclusive, tastefully furnished place, characterized by the hospitality and genuine Tuscan organic flavor. A farm, cataloged by the Tuscany Region, with five sunflowers, the equivalent of a five-star hotel.

Agriturismo Biologico Sant'Egle is certified organic and they grow spirulina, saffron, fruit, and vegetables following the organic synergistic and biodynamic method. Since 2015, they have planted a one-hectare truffle of Tuber Brumale. The only culture that does not certify bio is that of stevia Reba because in Europe it is not possible to certify it as such.

Agriturismo Biologico Sant'Egle is part of a project of the Tuscany Region of Social Agriculture offering a disabled boy a human opportunity for social integration within the family and the world of work.

Sant'Egle is an environmentally friendly, zero-impact structure, and biodiversity preserver. WWF Italia has awarded Agriturismo Biologico Sant'Egle the best farm in Italy for sustainability and biodiversity conservation while TripAdvisor has rewarded Agriturismo Biologico Sant'Egle as the only Platino structure in the province of Grosseto with the EcoLeader brand.

100% of the energy used is produced from renewable sources. All the lights are LED to promote energy savings. The night lighting of the farmhouse is oriented downwards so as not to cause light pollution. The clear nights are invaded by blankets of stars and the heavenly vault reaches the horizon. A unique place to admire the Milky Way and many constellations.

The heating, like the hot water of the santari, is provided by the solar panels, the thermo-fireplace, and a condensing boiler. Rainwater is used for irrigation of the agricultural part.

The garden, the structure, and each room create settings through objects, colors, and communication artifacts displayed in rotation by artists from all over the world. In bed with art, a new concept of an exhibition of art and objects resulting from recycling, open to all and experienced in the relaxation of a holiday. The Art of Recycling is the open-air museum of contemporary art waiting for you at Sant'Egle with sculptures created by objects found during the cleaning of woods and illegal landfills.

Throughout the farm there are mangers, natural, and artificial nests, to help small birds during the winter months and migratory birds during the summer. For this, being comfortable sitting in the pool is easy to do birdwatching.

A pond full of aquatic plants is home to many dragonflies, aquatic insects, frogs, and reptiles that help you in the correct balance of food, pollination and biodiversity conservation. A flowered area is home to many species of caterpillars and its butterflies.

The structure is suitable for children aged 14 and over. Maximum 18 beds are available in single, double, triple, and quadruple double rooms, all with private bathroom and entrance.

All guests have access to a porch furnished with sofas and comfortable cushions, a garden with an ancient tree under which there are tables, chairs, chaise longs, hammocks, a gazebo to enjoy unique moments of relaxation, and a thatched theater where during summer you can watch the cinema under the stars and shows of various kinds.

A Bio Pool awaits you in the summer months with its salt water while all year round you can swim in a romantic wood-heated two-person pool.
