“Delightful period country house”
This is a country house built on a farm in the 1840s, and Carlo has been coming here every summer since he was a child. There are modern bathrooms but the house looks and feels the same as it might have done back then. The beautiful ceramic tiles on the floors, the furnishings and pictures all exude a delightful period charm. After an early morning swim in the pool at the back of the house we were given breakfast of fruit, coffee and delicious home baked apricot tart while Carlo and Simonetta showed us books and pamphlets of the local sights and told us in good English about everything there was to see and do in the area. When we came back from our trips in the late afternoon we could go for a walk on the farm which is very picturesque with its dry stone walling, evergreen oaks and a herd of some thirty dark brown Murgese horses roaming free.
