Our Farm

Chiarentana from the middle ages to today

The main building was the first to be restored by the Origo family and an extraordinary transformation has been carried out in recent years by their daughter Donata. Today Chiarentana has become her home, a cheerful and welcoming place, surrounded by a beautiful garden full of lavender, rosemary and roses that blend with the surrounding countryside.

Chiarentana’s History

A centuries-old voyage

Chiarentana’s history is rooted in the centuries and has been closely tied to that of La Foce. In the middle ages It was a small castle on the via Francigena where pilgrims would stop on their way to Rome. Discover Chiarentana’s history: you will read how in the middles-ages it hosted an emperor on his way to Rome to be crowned by the Pope, how it became one of the first communes in Tuscany with its own by-laws, how it later degraded into a large sharecroppers’ farm, and finally how a young couple who had travelled across the world, chose it to build a life-long project of social and economic development of the land and the people living on it.
