Citta della Pieve
The climate is evidiable, both in Winter ( warmer and dry) and in Summer cooler than the valley.
for a gentle breeze that refresh the air.
The place is great:.
The pool cleaned daily and is always welcoming as an escape from the heat,
the accommodation served you very well and eating all of your meals on the veranda is just perfect. Supper, sunset and good wine- need I say more? I strongly recommend an evening stroll to the hill-top where you can see a huge distance. The fishing is fun, and you all can enjoye hosting pool tournaments with the stunning pool table. It`s a remarkable way to feel the Italian life style.
