Waking up in one of The Lazy Olive Glamping's bell tents. In the countryside of a small Tuscan village, Petroio. With breathtaking views over vineyards and woods. At sunrise it is easy to spot roe deer, at night to hear the call of foxes. Only 8 pitches. For a full immersion in nature and silence.
The Lazy Olive Glamping can be reached via a dirt road. You sleep on comfortable beds with the possibility of turning on the air conditioning. The furniture is simple and refined. The private bathroom and outdoor shower are located outside the tent (hot water is from solar panels).
During the day you can read a book in the shade of the olive trees, between a swim in the pool and another. At lunch, you can grill in the common area, and eat all together on the large wooden table. The vegetables are harvested directly from the organic garden. End the day with a walk, an e-bike ride or a visit to the surrounding villages.
Every year The Lazy Olive Glamping makes one more step to lighten the human footprint on the planet, following the ecotourism trend. Old recycled furniture, no plastic and low consumption light bulbs. The chickens eat the leftovers, returning the favor with fresh eggs the next morning. What is not eaten by the animals ends up in the composting tanks and is used as fertilizer.
Rainwater is collected for irrigation and efforts are made to reduce CO2 emissions as much as possible (in 2007 the property purchased a 10 acre block of regenerating temperate rainforest on the Great Barrier Island in New Zealand, with the intent of planting more trees to increase the carbon sequestration rate).
In the fall, every The Lazy Olive Glamping’s tent is dismantled to clear the ground so that it can be worked on properly. The pool is also a pop up.
