Ortigia is the essence of Sicily – a synthesis of the scents, colours and mysteries of one of the oldest, largest, most diverse islands in the Mediterranean.
Ortigia is a small soap and scent business located in Florence. It was founded in Sicily in 2006 by Sue Townsend (one of the co-founders of “Crabtree and Evelyn” in the 70s). Our range is formulated using natural, local Sicilian ingredients, and is inspired by the beauty, colours and scents of the most tropical, historic region in Italy.Inspiration is drawn from Sicilian plants: orange blossom, Sicilian lime, pomegranate, lavender, prickly pear, almond; that can be found in every garden and are all native to Sicily. The collection uses traditional products with modern ethical practice and integrity.
ORTIGIA products are used exclusively in all our suites at Casa Colleverde.

Terra della Luna is a farm business founded in Ortonovo (SP) in 2006: We grow grapes on the hills of Luni, on terrain known as “Pezzo Grande”, renowned since the 19th Century for its “Bianc Bon” wines produced by the Fabbricotti family. In the basin formed where the hills of Tuscany and Liguria meet, the soil is rich in grey clay at a depth of one meter, forming an ideal microclimate to grow grapes and make wine that has an intense aroma and a well-balanced taste.
Terra della Luna was built entirely using green-building materials and, thanks to its photovoltaic system, aims at reducing its carbon dioxide emissions to zero.
Naturally these principles are reflected both in the cellar and in its wine: Terra della Luna is committed to not using pesticides, chemical fertilizers and systemic herbicides and to minimizing processing aids and selected yeasts, always working with the maximum care and respect for nature, to produce high quality wines.
