Pepolino is situated near Lucignano, in the heart of Val Di Chiana. It is centered between important turist and cultural localities. Born from the need to pass on the love of simple things, the atmosphere of the past and the awareness of the changing of the seasons, Il PEPOLINO is an informal ambient where the warmth of days gone by and harmony with countrylife are found.
Pepolino (Tuscan name for thyme) is an aromatic herb used by our grandmothers to give a particular taste to simple dishes such as the “Ribollita” (a bread and vegetable soup). A simple but tenacious plant, it can be found even in the poorest terrain and its aroma, light yet strong, when carried by the wind is embracing and can make you fall in love.
