Maggie’s Home is hidden between cypresses and ancient oaks on the top of a pristine hill of olive trees and vineyards. Up here, the view of San Gimignano is a dreamy, awe-inspiring picture. Its medieval towers loom between the sky and the valleys, framing the rising light of dawn and capturing the fireflies in the night. The million-dollar view continues with the undulating, breathtaking Tuscan countryside.. and the town is a leisurely 10-minute walk away along a romantic & picturesque pathway.

Eignin
Perfumes of bergamot & wild mandarin trees, Santa Fina violets and dandelions, blowing poppies and ears of wheat. Scents of aged Vernaccia wine, chopped artichokes and golden saffron powder.

Maggie’s Home is a little green oasis on the top of Monteoliveto hill, nestled between the scenic valleys of the Chianti region and the timeless rolling countryside of Tuscany. From our cozy nest, the view of San Gimignano is wondrous. At sunrise, the medieval towers peek out from the morning mist. At sunset, they stand guard on a brilliant orange sky, presenting an endless show of beauty and a vast, almost surreal, panorama.

The Home is at the heart of an old farmstead composed of two farmhouses and a small piece of land that has belonged to our family since the end of the 17th century. Here on our “poggio”, (the traditional name for “hill” derived from the Latin podium or pedestal), ancient oaks, wise owls and stone walls keep the memories of the past.
Meanwhile, Mum (Daniela) and I (Maggie) live our rural life in peace and harmony, growing fruit, organic vegetables, olives and grapes. We practice yoga and natural medicine, talking about dreams, folklore and philosophy. We live surrounded by wicker baskets and hoes, cats, hens, freshly baked bread and extra virgin olive oil.

Bluebonnet Room is located on the ground floor of the historical farmhouse, in Maggie's apartment. However, the entrance - a frenchwindow - is private and it frames San Gimignano in its best silhouette. The room overlooks the fabulous Chianti landscape until the Appennino mountains, facing a breathtaking daily dawn show.
During the summer afternoons you can hear the hypnotic sounds of the cicadas, the whispers of butterflies & fireflies wings and the chant of the eagles. The room has a french bed (140x200 cm), a private bathroom with shower, cotton towels, hairdryer and organic soaps; a LED TV, extra pillows and blankets, a portable heater and a fan for your comfort. All the furnishings are unique and original, restored with artistic inspiration and love. Free Wi-Fi is included in all the rooms as well as throughout the property.

There is a lounge in Mum's house for refreshment and chilling-out, where you can chat, read or just relax. The living room is exclusively for our guests and provided with blanded coffee, teas, biscuits, books and “meditandum” craft liquors. Here, surrounded by old family pictures and rare Tuscan amenities, guests can taste our famous country meals cooked with love and artistry by the magical hands of my Italian Mamma. Whether it is breakfast, lunch or dinner, your meal will be prepared with organic seasonal ingredients and creativity.
At the end of a long day, put up your tired feet and enjoy a glass of wine in the garden pergola while savoring the evening view of San Gimignano, lit only by the moon and stars. Nearby, there are two covered areas; one with laundry facilities and the other used for wine, food and olive oil tastings. Both spaces are also equipped for Airbnb experiences and workshops.

At Maggie’s Home, you can meet the living Spirit of our land, the keeper of memories and the key that unlocks and reveals its secrets, charms and enchanting traditions- both ancient and contemporary. We help you find the most beautiful, unique and authentic ways to explore the natural and cultural resources of Tuscany. In our home, you are embraced by the sweetness of our precious ecosystem while being pampered by the caring warmth of a welcoming family that puts hospitality above all else.

Staðsetning

San Gimignano, Toscana, Ítalía

Maggie’s Home occupies the top of one of the most famous hills in the area, “Il Poggio.” The word poggio, which derives from the Latin word podium, or pedestal, perfectly evokes our grand position. We are high up, protected by the oak and cypress trees, and surrounded by a panoramic view of the pristine Tuscan landscape. Directly ahead is San Gimignano, with its famous postcard profile. FROM OUR PLACE YOU CAN REACH THE VILLAGE ON FOOT by walking along the historic Via Vecchia, a path lined by elms that runs between farms and fields. You will find a supermarket and the first of many restaurants after only a few hundred meters.

Amo la cultura popolare, le leggende urbane, i rituali domestici ed i miti ancestrali. Perché sono i linguaggi dell’Uomo, codici creati per spiegare la nostra singolare natura ed adattarci a vivere nella Natura selvaggia; ed amo la Natura, quella intima e quella fatta di vento, fiori e farfalle poiché da essa l’Uomo ha tratto l’ispirazione, il nutrimento, e la materia viva dei sogni. Alberi, mari in tempesta, filosofia, folklore e metafisica sono le mie passioni :)

Sono un’antropologa, una scrittrice in ombra, una chef vegana ancora più in ombra, un’assidua praticante di yoga, un’artista mancata, una cabarettista della vita quotidiana. Mi piace raccontare storie, mi piace ridere di me. Ascoltare, chiacchierare, sperimentare.

Ho cominciato a camminare presto, praticamente quando ho scoperto di avere dei piedi. E li ho usati fino all’usura per battere sentieri, esplorare deserti e foreste, sondare fondali, scalare montagne. Viaggiare è la mia passione, quando sollevo polvere coi piedi scopro cosa ci sta sotto: il segreto dell’universo. Ogni strada ha la sua narrazione, ogni vicolo e spazio aperto del pianeta custodiscono coordinate di rotta, mappe tracciate a passo d’uomo verso la conoscenza della natura.

Viaggiando ho imparato il gusto di sentirmi a Casa. Di riconoscere un luogo come affine, di entrarci in risonanza, di percepirlo familiare. Così, dopo più di un decennio d’intrepido vagabondare, ho deciso di tornare dove sono nata. Lì dove le mie radici s’intrecciano con la coda dei pavoni, tra gli olivi e l’ombra caleidoscopica delle chiome di leccio. Qui sulla collina, imitando la saggezza degli uccelli, ho iniziato a tessere un “nido a terra” con le spighe di grano.

Vivo tra tralci di vigna e zafferano, mi siedo sulla campagna vestita di carciofi e denti di leone, mi addormento con le lucciole e mi sveglio sempre prima delle galline. Vivo su di un piedistallo verde, circondata da panorami che non mi stanco di guardare. La vista da un milione di dollari stringe comunque su San Gimignano, che da qui è di una bellezza disarmante. Con quelle torri medievali che reggono il cielo sulla testa, il fiero profilo di pietra, le mura che affondano nelle valli del Chianti.

“Maggie’s million dollar view” è il nome che ho dato a casa mia quando ho deciso di diventare un Host, e di aprire a viaggiatori, turisti e pellegrini, le porte del mio piccolo podere incantato. In equilibrio tra tradizione e contemporaneità, io, mia madre e mio fratello vi aspettiamo a braccia aperte.. Tra gatti e olio extravergine di oliva, coltivazioni biologiche e cucina biodinamica, yoga e medicina naturale!
****Se il Viaggio più lungo è quello per tornare a casa; e se quando Maometto riposa, è la montagna che va a fargli visita, ecco spiegato come accogliendo chi viene da lontano, a modo mio, tengo tutto il mondo in tasca****

I love popular culture, urban legends, domestic rituals and ancestral myths because they are the languages of man: the codes created to explain our singular nature and adapt us to live in the wilderness. I love nature; the intimate one made from wind, flowers and butterflies because it is where we draw nourishment and inspiration and where we find the living materials to fulfill our dreams. Trees, stormy seas, philosophy, folklore and metaphysics are my passions :)

I am an anthropologist, burgeoning writer and aspiring vegan chef. I am an assiduous practitioner of yoga, and a wannabe artist with a keen sense of humor about the trials of everyday life. I like telling stories, laughing at myself, listening, chatting and experimenting.

I started walking early, practically from the first moment I discovered I had feet. Since then, I’ve beat a path around the world, exploring deserts and forests, plumbing depths and climbing mountains. Traveling is my passion and I believe that when I raise dust with my feet, I discover the secret of the universe and all that lies beneath us. Each street has its own narration, each alley and open space on the planet guards the coordinates of its route, maps drawn at a walking pace towards the knowledge of nature.

Traveling I learned the taste of feeling at home. To recognize a similar place, to enter into resonance, to perceive it as familiar. So, after more than a decade of intrepid wandering, I decided to go back to where I was born. There, where my roots intertwine with the peacocks' tail, between the olive trees and the kaleidoscopic shadow of the holm oaks. Here on the hill, imitating the wisdom of birds, I started to weave a "nest on the ground" with the ears of wheat.

I live among vine shoots and saffron, I sit down on the country dressed in artichokes and dandelions, I fall asleep with fireflies and I always wake up before the hens. I live on a green pedestal, surrounded by landscapes that I do not get tired of looking at. However, the million dollar view tightens on San Gimignano, which is a disarming beauty from here. With those medieval towers that hold the sky above the head, the proud stone profile, the walls that sink into the valleys of Chianti.

"Maggie's million dollar view" is the name I gave my house when I decided to become a Host, and to open the doors of my little enchanted farm to travelers, tourists and pilgrims. In balance between tradition and modernity; cats, extra virgin olive oil, organic cultivation and biodynamic cooking, yoga and natural medicine ..i, my mother and my brother are waiting for you with open arms!
**** If the longest journey is to return home; and if when Muhammad rests, it is the mountain that goes to visit him, here is explained how welcoming those who come from afar, in my way, I keep the whole world in my pocket ****
