Malagronda is the name of the country house, which makes people immediately ask during their arrival “What does Malagronda mean?”
It is the name of the place where the house was built, one of the many hills that characterize the land between Umbria and Tuscany.
MALAGRONDA, THE MEANING
The etymology of the name can be looked for in two dialect words, difficult to understand outside of the dialect “mala” means difficult, not good and “gronda”means peak or tip, a place not easy to get to on foot at 400 mt. Named Mala-gronda perhaps also for its stony ground so not very fertile fields and suitable only for woods and olives – as it presents itself today.
THE GRAZIANI FAMILY
The farmhouse, typical of Umbria, was built by the family Graziani in the first part of the 1800s, the houses and their lands for the workers were lived in until the most of the first half of the 1900s.
Today Malagronda is a beautiful country house, in a harmonious context with green lawns and trees where it is possible to have an unforgettable holiday in Umbria and relax in the countryside.
Its position will amaze you as soon as you arrive for your stay.
It’s difficult to imagine that once a upon a time water had to be collected outside the houses, you had to go to wells or springs. Light was provided by candles or oil lamps; the road was travelled on by carts or on foot.
Lifestyles were different from nowadays, pronounced natural rhythms of day and night and the different seasons that decide and determine the agricultural works to be done. When one ate the simple produce from the earth and animals were farmed. This way of living has its cultural roots in the Umbrian region, mainly an agricultural economy from which we get our traditional Umbrian food and wine.
We still continue to cultivate the same fields, producing extra virgin olive oil, pasta, chcikpeas, honey, barley and spelt.
