The farmhouse has a large porch where guests can enjoy
peaceful sunny afternoons, admire the sunset or set up
evening barbecues. A large garden surrounds the house
and a 7x14 meter swimming pool viewing the surrounding
valley is available for guests use. A laundry room with
two washing machines, a large sink and hanging space is
available on Wednesdays and Fridays or upon request. A
large freezer for food storage is also available in the
same room. The house keepers, Claudio and Maria, will
contribute to make your stay even more pleasant thanks
to their warm and friendly welcome and will be available
for any useful information such as shopping, trekking,
bird-watching and natural reserves, horse riding, entertainment
and visits, as well as for the typical

within the house is available for wine tasting and purchases
of the estates’ wines, oil and local products. In addition,
tours of the estates’ large wine cellars and private museum
can be organized upon request. These provide an opportunity
to get a close first hand view of the wine making process
as well as some of the antique tools and machineries used
in the past by the estate.
