The interiors are a balanced combination of contemporary and ethnic taste. The kitchen is very well equipped and functional. All paintings are made by Cornelis.

Further details outdoors

The Casetta is fully in the forest, so the garden is surrounded by high trees. A few trekking paths starts from Porcaticcio. But a very special atmosphere is created by Cornelis contemporary sculptures (marble, bronze, stainless steel), placed all over in the garden.
