The farm owners are very friendly and welcoming, they will gladly prepare delicious meals on request using fresh and genuine ingredients of their own production, served in the charming dining room with the rustic convivial atmosphere of times gone by. There are two characteristic farmhouses on Le Balze estate each housing three apartments. At ground level of one of the houses the farms dining room is situated, and also on the estate is the owners house, and a further building, the characteristic 'Torre' tower house where there are two more apartments.

it was amazing

  • 5 of 5

The host family is very kindly. The app is really big, clean and comfortable. The only thing, which disturbed us, it we heard the neighbours. Fortunately we were most of the time alone in the house.

The landscape is really beautyful. Our kids had a lot of fun, too.

A really relaxing experience

  • 5 of 5

Our last stay with the Caruso family was very pleasant an a really relaxing experience.

All members were very welcoming and nice to us so we enjoyed their warm hospitality very much.

The apartments and the property is being held in good sate and very tidy.

The pool was amazing and our overall impression was so good that we will return there in September for another two weeks. We have recommended this place also to our friends and family.

Hope this gives you an impression on how much we liked our stay there.
