You can find relax on the lawn in front of the house, protected by the shade of a large elm and surrounded by the scent of lavender.

An advice I can give you right away: when you exit from the A1 at Fabro, remember to stop and do basic shopping at least for the evening and the morning of the next day. Avoid to go back, just arrived. In any case you will find a small supply of basic foods (pasta, bread, biscuits, coffee, tea, UHT milk, canned tomatoes, canned tuna, olive oil, salt, sugar, etc.)

During their stay, guests can count on the constant availability of Gina and Vittorio, the caretakers of the property who live in Montegiove, a very small village 1.5 km away. They are very discreet people who will not interfere with your activities but they will be immediately available for your requests. If you want, at a cost to be agreed directly with them, they will prepare traditional dishes or cook the pizza in a wood oven, everything straight home, so you can watch the preparation and Italian style in the kitchen. Domenico, a factotum guy, cleans and controls the pool every day. It is most unlikely you will see him because he comes silently very early in the morning. I myself or someone of my family will welcome you and show you the house.
