British regal and Italian hospitality.
We enjoyed staying here very much. The house is so welcoming, a mix of British regal and Italian hospitality. There were plenty of rooms and beds for our families with enough spaces to eat together or enjoy a quiet spot alone. There were also enough bathrooms with showers that allowed us our own schedules and time to enjoy the accommodations like the ping pong table and pool. The rooms were clean and tidy, and had blankets for the cool mountain nights. Most of all, from the moment we arrived until the day we reluctantly left, we enjoyed the character, culture, and warmth the house offered. It will be the focal point of our trip with many memories happening there. We highly recommend a stay!
Una bella festa
Siamo stati settimana scorsa tre giorni per un addio al celibato ... casa molto spaziosa , padroni simpatici e casa in generale all altezza delle aspettative , con griglia e piscina adatte per feste , anche rumorose .il posto è un po’ isolato , dipende se piace , noi cercavamo appunto un posto per fare casino senza rotture

The vast parking area flanked by flower columns gives access to three spacious garages, two of which are reserved for visiting guests. Behind the house the drive continues into the surrounding woods.
