THE COUNTRY HOME
If this is your thing, you really come to love this place.
The Country Home is located within our 40-hectare organic farm. There is a centuries-old olive grove, a chestnut grove, a 10-hectare meadow where our horses graze freely, and a charming 4-hectare forest where you can walk freely and in autumn collect mushrooms and chestnuts. The Pool, located just outside the farmhouse, the swimming pool offers our guests a pleasant relaxation area where they can quietly read a book, enjoy one of our cocktails or savour a glass of good wine.
The luscious garden, with its slate grey pool and quiet places to read and relax, is one of the highlights of this exclusive Country Home. On summer evenings dinner is al fresco at a table laden with exquisite green pottery, baskets filled with flowers, and embroidered linen.
The Country Home is located in a 100- acre pesticide free, organic property. A large garden surrounds the house. With a swimming pool, lounge areas, and dining tables, it offers numerous corners to relax.
The mood? Think of olive groves, vegetable gardens, blue sky, clear water and chestnut grovesin the distance.
We offers a refuge, a nest, a place that eludes the typical standardsof vacation resorts.
bring along family and friends and rent the whole house!
The Country Home consists of 3 spacious suites, 1 double room, and 1 triple room. Each room has its own bathroom with bathtub. All our rooms have been designed and furnished in their own style, following the original

All rooms have a wonderful view of the garden and the surrounding countryside. It is a unique experience: a journey through the history of the estate through the centuries. Each with its own particularities. The 18th-century
