Podere Costarella is an Eco-sustainable Farmhouse. Starting to manage the structure with this philosophy was a natural choice, inspired by the search for a lifestyle in contact with the territory and the farm itself. We are located inside the beautiful state forest La Selva. We decided to let ourselves be guided by the nature that surrounds us, respecting it, accompanying our guests to discover it slowly, smelling the spontaneous flowers, listening to the silence of the forest interrupted only by the slight crunch of the steps and the chirping, enjoying the view of the hills of Tuscany. We live this place making Sustainability a lifestyle, using clean energy, avoiding pesticides and producing organic oil, making Hospitality a beautiful way to share all this.
Living at Podere Costarella we understood how important it is to network with those who, like us, live and love this territory, and grow all together. Social sustainability means this: educating oneself to share, to respect, to understand that with the help of the other it is possible to build a sustainable lifestyle and create value for all. There is an inestimable richness in the sense of commonality and in the experiences that arise from the sharing of what one has and produces, of resources, of smiles. A dense network that builds solid foundations for a more equitable society, which we realize, every day, in everyday life. Local producers who love their land and are committed to bringing to the table of their guests genuine products and artisans who take care of their work with passion, with particular attention to the total environmental and energy sustainability of their work. That's who is part of our wonderful social network.
