Agriturismo Terra Selvatica

To live in tune with nature, feel the magic of the seasons, breath the perfume of the earth, close to the elements, sun on your skin, wind in your hair, overlooking the width of the Tiber Valley, enjoy deep silence, re-discover the wildness: This is Terra Selvatica – wild earth!

She has opened wide her arms, let us in, welcomed us – and the same heartfelt welcome we offer you, dear guest!

Country life – an affair of the heart

Country life on a farm means to get involved. Involved in each single moment. No matter if it is a moment of sun, warmth, wind, rain or cold, the power of the elements invites to live nature, become a part of it and learn its language.

Life on a farm means to have dirt underneath your fingernails, blisters on your feet or hands, muscle ache, possibly a sunburn. It means birds-singing as a constant companion, glowworms in June, pure air, fragrances of earth and plenty of joy and satisfaction. To witness how a seed becomes a plant giving us fruit and vegetable is participating directly in the circle of life. With devotion, enthusiasm and mindfulness we are pursuing our daily business and give gratitude to the soil and the earth who is carrying and nourishing us.

Thus you should be aware, dear guest, that when you are coming to Terra Selvatica, the rooster crows, sheep are bleating, wind muddles up your hair, rain might transform the earth into mud. But your gaze meets no boundaries, your senses will be cleaned and refreshed and you dive into the wisdom of nature. In all its wild beauty.

Terra Selvatica – wild earth.

On our farm we leave space for cultivated and wild land – they complement each other. Olive groves surrounded by broom growing wild and thorny bushes where bees and other little animals meet. Our fields are fenced by natural bushes and wild cherry trees. Traces of human intervention are in harmony with the natural growth, the native land and the earth. Pure beauty and wilderness. Cultivation and authenticity. Discipline and freedom. At Terra Selvatica these are no opposites – ONENESS.

Terra Selvatica – wild earth.

We have taken her to our hearts and she thanks us with her miracles and richness every day.

Your host

A Swiss lady in Italy.

Tired of my civilized life I decided to move to the country side and materialize and live my long cherished visions and dreams. Dreams of an autonomous and independent life. Nature. Land. Earth. Being outside. Live in a sustainable way, in harmony with the circle of life. Eat homegrown vegetables. Mature and full of taste. Live and care about the community. Together. Meet and being met.

For a long time I already felt the attraction and the connection to Italy, to the Italian way of life, the “italianità”. Is it the holidays I spent with my family in Italy or my Italian roots from my great-grandmother – … The joy and pleasure that –one could think- emanates from within the earth and flows into the body and soul showing itself in heartiness, warmth and helpfulness. This is contagious and yet so soothing.

The step to Umbria, Perugia, Fratticiola Selvatica, Terra Selvatica was a big one. This change of life has brought inner freedom, wisdom and peace and the wish to share it with you, dear guest.

A heartfelt welcome – un cordiale benvenuto!
