Podere San Luigi was - as the name "Podere" (farm) suggests - originally a typical Tuscan farmhouse, built around 1900 from natural stone.
The house stands in the middle of the almost 1 hectare garden. Magnificent pine trees, typical cipresses but also fruit and olive trees as well as numerous ornamental plants make the property seem almost like a green oasis in the middle of the surrounding fields.
Up to three families once lived here on the outskirts of Bagno di Gavorrano and cultivated the surrounding fields, largely by hand. Some residents from the village still tell me about the time they lived on San Luigi. I grew up there myself from 1982.
The middle two-story part of the house is the oldest; Over the years, the house has been expanded and remodeled to adapt to today's needs.
