As you drive deeper into the valley flanked by steep hills lined with rows of olive trees and the punctuating lilac of the Albero di Giuda, you know you're up for something unique. Tucked away up the hillside, this property is a gem. The owners have restored an old medieval "borghetto" with impeccable taste while remaining true to the original style and the surrounding landscape. Each unit has its own distinct charm, and they are all wonderfully comfortable and fully equipped with all amenities. The location is a perfect blend of privacy and centrality, allowing for easy day trips to neighboring exquisite historic sites, while making for a stay that is as peaceful and private as can be. The area is a culinary paradise, and the locally produced olive oils, meats, truffles, cheeses and the regional cuisine are nothing short of excellent. This is Italy at its best. Claudia, Francesco, Eva and Aziz are wonderful hosts who will go to great lengths to ensure that your experience is something you will look forward to repeating. And sharing, so here we go - now, don't tell anyone.
