our Big Dream
Hi! We are Stefanie & Rasmus, we met when Stefanie rented a room in Rasmus' apartment on Airbnb.
After years of dreaming, we bought Castello di Ristonchi a 1,000 year old castle village surrounded by a forest in Tuscany, Italy. We promote a simpler life in a community setting surrounded by nature. We aim to be as eco-friendly as possible and invite you to come visit us while getting back to the earth and the love.
Join our online village to be notified of events, specials and to hear about exciting new projects.
Castello di Ristonchi
The 1,000+ year old Ristonchi Castle is still watching over the gorgeous Tuscan hillside landscape. The history here shows signs of monks, wars and stonemasons. The Energy is neutral and serene. Here you can instantly connect with the grounded atmosphere and reset to your basic self.
Inside the castle are apartments ranging from studio to 2 bedrooms, a restaurant, a wood fired pizza oven built into the stonewalls, a chapel, an outdoor pool filled with fresh mountain spring water, a playground, olive groves and fruit trees all surrounded by an ancient chestnut forest hiding treasures yet to be discovered.
