Antheia: we have dreamed it for years, now it has become our reality. No longer big city life but a new project of life immersed in Nature. Our journey from Piedmont to Umbria began in 2012, from Turin to Monteleone d’Orvieto. New goals, our values in a new perspective, a new pace of life.
Agricultural activities have marked the time and accompanied the renovation of Casa Antheia for three years. We wanted to keep the original balance and sober beauty of the ancient Umbrian farmhouse, valorising its essential features and create a continuum of internal and external spaces.
Antheia is located on a hillock in the middle of the farm, fully converted to the principles of Conservation Agriculture. It is a farming system that promotes maintenance of a permanent soil cover, minimum soil disturbance (i.e. no tillage), and diversification of plant species. It enhances biodiversity and natural biological processes above and below the ground surface, which contribute to increased water and nutrient use efficiency and to improved and sustained crop production.
Just a couple of kilometers away is Monteleone d’Orvieto, an ancient medieval village, perched on one of the hills that separate the Orvieto area from Città della Pieve. From Monteleone you can admire the Tuscan and Lazio hills and mountains and the Chiani Valley.
