Above the tiny hamlet of San Giovanni del Pantano lies Gudiolo di Sopra. Set amongst olive trees and lavenders the carefully restored XV century tower and house, with a saltwater swimming pool, enjoys stunning views of distant fields and valleys.
The house is spacious and full of light. In the sitting room, cool breezes pass through the open doors that lead to the garden and tower. The kitchen is fully equipped with an adjoining dining room (for 12). Lunch and dinners are usually served outside (one table seats 6, the other 12). A variety of outdoor seating areas surround the house offering privacy and silence. A loggia by the tower offers a relaxing space to watch the sunset. A lounge area outside the dining room offers the confort of a living room while enjoying the breathtaking views. An organic vegetable garden provides seasonable salads and vegetables and the estate also produces its own biological olive oil. The only little shop in the village offers typical gourmet products from local farmers. Just 1.5 kilometers away, Antognolla Castle overlooks the 18-hole championship golf course designed by Robert Trent Jones J.
