With your presence at Coliving you are already helping us to support the project! But the first help for us is having you here and being able to listen to your feedback about your experience at Tertulia Coliving and to be able to constantly improve the facilities, experiences, logistics etc. If you have particular skills that you think could be useful, let us know and we can offer you a discount in exchange for some of your time!
Briefly, coliving means living and working sharing the same space with people who share your lifestyle. In Tertulia, it means living in a conscious and sustainable way, working remotely in a place surrounded by unspoiled nature, feeling at home from the first moment in the company of a small, dynamic and welcoming community of people. And being able to take a walk directly from the front door!
We are in an isolated area and in the woods, and we still suffer from the digital divide (there is no fiber here). We have a connection via radio waves with fwa technology provided by Eolo that offers 60 Mb/s download and 3 + 3 Mb/s upload (bonding technology on two Eolo subscriptions) that allows you to make video calls, watch streaming videos, work in the cloud with excellent performance. There is also the possibility from the rooms to take advantage of the 4g signal with excellent reliability.
Of course! In this difficult period related to covid, it is an excellent solution to share space with people you trust and with whom you have contact. Write us a message to know the availability and to let us know your needs and we will reply immediately!
Tertulia is an isolated place, we are lucky in this period. There is no coming and going of people except colivers and residents. If you decide to spend more than a week in Tertulia, after the initial distancing precautions, we will be in effect like a family and we will have the opportunity to be together relaxed and safe!
Yes, of course. We offer two options: private rooms (single or double) with private bathroom or bed in shared twin room with bathroom.
Tertulia Coliving is in the original structure of 1700, consists of 6 newly renovated spacious and well-kept rooms, with private or shared bathroom, a cozy coworking space, a living room, a multifunctional room, a kitchen equipped like at home where you can have lunch with a large fireplace , a veranda with tables, outdoor workstations, garden and woods just outside the front door, natural gardens with seasonal vegetables.
At the beginning of the week we plan a meeting with all the guests to coordinate together, introduce ourselves and get to know each other, listen to the ideas and proposals of the colivers for the activities you want to do, discuss the kitchen to share the methods of managing meals and shopping (Does anyone offer to cook for a few days? Do we let things flow freely? What are the seasonal products? Where to shop from local producers?). It’s the moment to get organized and start to live at best our stay in Tertulia.
Accommodation and supply of bed linen, towels and a weekly housekeeping. Wi-fi internet connection is available everywhere. The equipped Con-Vivio kitchen is at your disposal (see section dedicated to food) and also equipped with a refrigerator and dishwasher: we supply you with vegetables and eggs from our production. You have free access 7 days a week at all hours to the coworking room. You can use the barn, a multifunctional room equipped with a video projector. Of course you have access to all the meadows and woods of Tertulia and its surroundings. You will be able to participate in some of Tertulia’s activities as a ‘farmer for a day’, weekly family dinner, bread making, cinema in the barn etc. In addition, if you don’t have a car, we offer a lift from the station on your arrival and departure and minimum once a week we will accompany you to shop (but we move everyday to the village).
That’s right, the meals are self-managed by the colivers who will have to do the shopping. In Tertulia there is a vegetable garden and seasonal products are included in the cost of the stay! The eggs from our hens are also at your disposal. The kitchen is the beating heart of coliving, it will be essential to respect the spaces and the rules of common sense to leave the space as clean as you found it. Cooking and eating together, listening to good music, is a fantastic way to get to know each other and to exchange, a precious moment in which everyone meets after the work day.
At your disposal in the honesty bar you will find various products from our territory and our production: just write down your consumption and then serve yourself, at the end of the week you can settle your bill. It is important for us in Tertulia to base our relationship on trust.
Are you a lover of trekking, mountain biking? There is plenty of choice! Are you fascinated by a territory where wild and cultivated meet? Just take a tour and you can easily spot wild animals, see intact woods, but also vineyards and olive groves and sheep farms. The famous Mugello racetrack can also be visited to see minor events (and not just the MotoGP). Rivers and lakes for swimming in the summer. The history of the Second World War from the Futa pass where there is the Germanic cemetery. The Etruscan finds. Many small villages to discover. And much more….
Of course! You can also go there by train from Vicchio station, trains run every hour. If you don’t have a car, you can certainly arrange a ride to the station with us or one of our guests. If you want to stay in the evening we can recommend a low cost hostel where you can stop and experience Florence by night without worrying about returning to Tertulia.
Perfect, it is precisely what we feel is important: to offer the possibility of staying in a remote place in the woods, to live with the rhythms of nature and the seasons, even if only for a few days, living in the coliving house in Tertulia where we have lived for more than 15 years (before we lived in the city center of Milan!). You will also have the opportunity to get closer to basic knowledge, the vegetable garden, light the fire, make wood, interact with the hens. These days, learning how to produce food is a resource that should not be underestimated …
We are 35 km from Florence, in Mugello. The nearest airports are Florence, Pisa and Bologna. Tertulia can be easily reached by car (the dirt road can be done with a normal car) or by train (but let us know that we will come to pick you up at the Vicchio station).
