Tijana visits Biomasseria Lama di Luna
http://www.lamadiluna.com/ is a farm of the 19 th century inhabited by Coloni and Mezzadri (Farmers and Share-Croppers). Nowadays it’s totally restructured, after three years of meticulous work, with techniques of bio-architecture and feng-shui in the total respect of the place and its history. It is surrounded by 210 hectares of natural landscape like olive-groves, cherry orchards, almond groves and vineyards, cultivated following the biological principles, certified by AIAB-ICEA. The guest-rooms are the old residence of the farmers. Today they are spacious and bright, they all have a fireplace, they overlook the farmyard and they are provided with warm water and heating thanks to 48 solar panels; there are beds made with heart-wood of pine or olive-tree or brass-made (dated to 19 th century), with natural latex mattress, unbleached cotton sheets and towels, olive-oil soaps. Each detail has been meticulously studied to let the energy move on to allow guests to feel the ancient traditions. In the total respect of the old structure and our great rural building knowledge, the farm has been restructured with mortar and natural materials, reusing the same materials such as old planks, bricks and frames dated back to 1800 and other material as the red or yellow clay. Beds are northern placed and the sharp edges have been replaced with rounded edges, because in the natural state all is round, all is harmony and all comes back to all. The forty chimney-pots, the scattered “Trulli” and the cave, they all tell the story of all the people that lived worked and rested in this beautiful and magic place.
