Our Animals


At the house we have a fair number of traditional Tuscan Bantams, several Anatra Muta Italiana ‘mute’ Ducks and a few Roman Geese.

The birds graze in complete freedom for most of the year, only during our brief Summer opening period do we exclude the larger birds, the ducks and geese from the majority of the spaces close to the house. All birds are always excluded from the pool gardens however.

The little bantam hens and their chicks will be busy around their coop and nursery room and the olive groves below day long as they are not confined.
