Rifugio Seremus

Surrounded by the forests of the Tuscan Maremma, the Rifugio Seremus is an organic farm located at the top of a hill, a few kilometers from the sea.  Its name comes from Latin, and means we are sowing.

The domain of 28 hectares, located at 250 meters above sea level, offers a breathtaking view of Val di Cornia.

The environment consists mainly of Mediterranean forest. The trails, ideal for hiking, horseback or mountain biking, are lined with green oaks, wild olive trees, strawberry trees, juniper trees and myrtle, vegetation always green and fragrant.

The Rifugio Seremus is a place of discovery of a rich and preserved biodiversity, ideal refuge for contemplators, dreamers and lovers of the wild environment.

In our certified organic farm, we mainly produce olive oil and honey. We grow fruits and vegetables but also aromatic and medicinal plants. In our laboratory, we make essential oils (lavender, thyme, rosemary, italian helichrysum) from the plants around us.

A forest garden, made of varieties of old and local fruit trees, was planted last winter and will bring us peaches, apricots, pears, apples, plums, cherries, raspberries, currants, blueberries but also hazelnuts, walnuts, almonds and chestnuts. "Forgotten" fruit trees like rowans, azeroles, jujubes also have their place in the forest garden.

 

What it's like to be here

« One day, we tire of talking about « de-growth » and the love of nature. We want to get our actions in sync with our ideas. It’s time to leave the city and close the curtains of the forest over speechifying »
(
Sylvain Tesson, Consolations of the forest)

Rifugio Seremus  is the story of a change of life.

We came here to live in the middle of a wild nature.

We came here to help keep this nature as it is.

The observation of the nature all around teaches us that this biodiversity is a richness to protect and that it should inspire us to design sustainable and harmonious systems.

 

By staying at Rifugio Seremus you can - if you wish - practice permaculture by taking free introductory courses and by accompanying us in small maintenance and harvesting work.

 

You can also enjoy a natural swim in our organic pool, a 15 m long pool, in which the water is purified by the phyto-purification action of the plants, without any chemical substance.

 

 We do not have a restaurant on site but we offer cheese boards and delicatessen from Tuscany as well as wines from neighboring producers, which you can complete with your picks from the vegetable garden. At your disposal are also a large barbecue for all your grills and a stone oven to cook your pizzas over a wood fire.

 

Finally, after dark, a stay at Seremus inevitably turns to the sky. Thanks to its slight altitude position and the absence of any light pollution, Seremus is a small refuge for astronomical enthusiasts.
