A True Taste of Italy; This is an experience which is likely to appeal to the more discerning customer, who is searching not only for peace and tranquillity, but also a true taste of rural Italy. We can provide wonderful scenery, fascinating places to visit and superb local cuisine.
The house is set within a traditional Italian farmstead containing an olive grove and vineyard along with a few sheep, goats and poultry. All the produce is organically grown. The family has rigorously (some may say even obstinately) maintained their philosophy of producing high quality food in a traditional manner long before the slow food movement. It’s possible to experience the taste of local natural and traditional products, with a certified origin. These include EST! EST!! EST!!! the famous local white wine, extravirgin olive oil, delicious local pork and porchetta along with a cornucopia of fresh fruit and vegetables.
It is our mission not only to provide high quality holidays but also to provide an illuminating insight into the traditional methods of producing good quality food.
So..... come to find us, you’ll pass a very relaxing vacation!!
