(In December 2023 we will be closed for renovations)
If you are looking for a place surrounded by nature where you can meet other people who, like you, can work remotely and wish to develop their projects and experience community, you are in the right place! Since 2020, Tertulia Coliving has been a place open to digital nomads, creatives, people in a transformative phase of their lives, curious travellers, interested in comparison and eager to experience a stimulating and enriching time.
Tertulia, before being a Coliving, has been for 9 years a project focused on family welcoming of refugees and organization of workshops and training courses of permaculture, regenerative agriculture, mindfulness, social theatre, bioconstructions. Over the years we have developed our own ‘culture’ of welcoming and giving people the feeling of being at home.
In spring you will find the flowers and scents of the splendid Mugello landscape and the power of nature and the wild, in summer you will discover magical evenings with a view of the sunset and the many rivers and places to cool off, in autumn you will be enchanted by the colours and scents of the forest and take part in the chestnut and olive harvest, and in winter you will rediscover your relationship with the dark, with fire and with the fascinating landscapes of the forest. But in all seasons you will always find a welcoming place, a community ready to make you feel part of the ‘family’ with whom you can meet regularly and exchange, people ready to share their experiences of how to think of a rural place in an innovative way and reconnect with the wild nature that surrounds us.
Write us at firstname.lastname@example.org to know the availability for the period you are interested in.
This is not a random question, as from the experience of living in the Coliving we advise and invite you to consider staying at least a month. That is why we have rates with significant reductions for those who decides to stay at least 30 days (25% discount). In a month you will have time to experience the place, to visit the surrounding area, to take your time for your projects but above all you will have time to meet other people, to exchange, to listen to your feelings in a life experience with transformative power. And the people you meet will also be happy to have time to get to know you, to meet you in a rhythm of life with time to spare.
The minimum stay is 14 days. We are also open to shorter stays if you have particular costraints, please contact us before booking. We are careful to balance individual exigences to respect group wellbeing.
We don’t have a maximum limit to your stay: you may wish to extend your stay, as is often the case, you may decide to come back at another time of year and meet new people, or you may even think about looking for a situation to live in the surrounding area and become part of the diffuse community that is springing up around Tertulia. We will certainly be by your side to tell you about the area, the projects and how life works around here!
You will be part of a dynamic community of people who like you chose to live a coliving experience. The maximum number of people that can stay in Tertulia is 12, averagely there is 6-7 colivers. It’s helpful if you decide to come in the first week of the month to reduce arrivals and goodbyes during the month for a smoother experience of the group (it’s true, every time someone is coming or leaving it’s a good occasion to celebrate, but also can be demanding for who is living the experience) .
There will be a community un-manager as a reference (everyone in the group is important, there are no leaders but diverse people), sometimes volunteers who help managing the spaces. A diffuse community is growing around Tertulia and you will meet some of them, they are people both from the coliving both neighbours.
You will be part of tasks to share the responsibility of keeping the spaces neat and ordered, both in the kitchen, both in the communal areas. Like at home, everyday your contribution is precious to mantain Tertulia beautiful!
Tertulia is a rural house, where we self built the majority of the things you will see (apart from the walls of the home and a few roofs…): don’t expect an hotel or a brand new space, but a funky atmosphere where new and old blend together, a professional kitchen stove close to a traditional fireplace, a wood oak pavement or liberty decorations in the rooms, and a muddy or dusty path in the garden. We prefer reusing furniture when is possible, be creative and sustainable.
Nature is alive here, plants are growing fast in spring, wild animals are all around, insects are part of a sane and powerful enviroment where the air is pure, the sound is the one of the forest, the night light depends on the moon.
You will find a place where we live with respect to sustainability, aiming to have a positive and regenative impact, and your contribution is important to foster our dream of making things better in this small corner of world
A fast reliable connection is granted thanks to a satellite provider (Starlink). To prevent failures we have a backup connection too with fwa 5g technology. Average download speed is 200 Mb/s and upload is 20 Mb/s which is allowing a perfect experience for calls.
You will have two coworking rooms 24/7 and a small room for private calls. Every room has a workstation and wifi is also outdoor (the best office is the one with the best inspiring view)
Breakfast and luch are ‘free’, dinners are shared. Everyone has a different schedule for morning and mid-day tasks and can be as flexible as necessary. For dinners you will be contributing in cooking and helping in the kitchen, according to your schedule, skills, desire. A little bit of help by everyone makes things easier for all.
We plan two groceries moments in the week, both for personal food both for shared dinners. Some planning is requested to have available on site all ingredients necessary for each gourmet menu!
We know that mobility is a ‘basic freedom’. If you cannot come with your car you will face the issue of rural mobility chronical scarcity of remote areas. Our solution is a shared car, available for local movements (groceries, go to a hike starting point, go to a restaurant, go for a dive in ponds, go to train station…). You will have to rent a car for weekends or longer trips. Car pooling is another option: we often move to the town and we can offer rides, as well as some of our neighbours. And there is a friend offering a taxi service but needs to be booked in advance.

If you are travelling with pets and you are thinking of staying in Tertulia with them, please let us know and we can discuss together about the opportunity. At Tertulia we have two dogs and three cats (as well as plenty of chickens and wild animals) living in harmony with each other. We ask the owners of pets to take the responsibility for maintaining this harmony by watching over their animals (we do not wish to lock or tie up our animals). We only have one rule that we ask you to respect: animals are not allowed inside the facility (rooms and common areas) to respect all guests. Our animals are always outside.
