We are the Pacini family, and we settled in this part of the Tuscan Maremma at the end of the 19th century. To be excact, our great-grandfather Pasquino Pacini after closing his military career, came across lake one day. A small, delightfull lake called the Lake of Accesa. And there is wanderings ended.
He was so charmed by the landscape that in 1898 he built a cabin on Poggio Corbello, above the lake.
Pasquino was certainly not the first Tuscan to fall in love with the Lake of Accesa. His Etruscan ancestors discovered it in the 9th century B.C., built a village on its shore, and dedicated themselves to mining activity there for the next 300 years, until the 6th century B.C.
In that cabin on the hill our grandfather Unico was born. Then one cabin become two, and finally turned into masonry home in which Unico and his wife - grandmather Gina - raised their family.
A family whose members were filled with energy and optimism: they bought land and built houses. a garage for farm machinery, and stalls and pens for cows, horses and pigs.
We present-day Pacinis - Laura and Pietro, with daughters Nada and Sabina - are all involved with our guest farm, established in the millenary tradition of Maremma hospitality. By sharing Poggio corbello with our guests we make sure it will flourish in the future, with its historical values and natural beauties intact.
Over the years, our pride in Poggio Corbello has led to the purchase of nearly 1200 acres of farm property, mostly woodland, the rest planted with almost 9000 olive trees, vineyards and various kinds of grain.
