A bit of history
65 years of Podere Bellosgurado
In the early 1950s, Giulio Capriotti came along with his wife “Pompilia” from the Marche region (specifically from the small village Castignano) to the beautiful Tuscany. Here, closed to the city of Volterra, they were searching for a new house and particularly for a job.
In those post war years, the Italian parliament passed a law for rural plannings with the objective to divide the land in lots and to assign it to new farmers. The government built houses and sold them along with a few hectares of land in order to speed up and increase the agricultural production.
Podere n°253 e n°254
In this way, 1951 the young couple was assigned land by the company “Maremma” (responsible company for dividing land in lots and assignment). The new property with the number 254 was also called “Podere Bellosguardo”.
A few years later the family decided to expand the farm and so they took the decission to acquire the neighbor farm (Podere No. 253 – called Podere S. Pasquale).
After 40 years, Ivo Capriotti, one of the three descendants of Giulio, took over the farm. In 2004 he decided to restructure the old Podere S. Pasquale to an Agriturismo for holiday guests called “Agriturismo Podere Bellosguardo”.
Until today, the farm is still run by Ivo and his family. Together with his wife “Susi” and his two children “Silvia” and “Davide” the whole Family Capriotti is pleased to cordially welcome you and to make your stay to a unique and unforgettable experience.
