Piccola casa colonica immersa nel verde fu costruita per ospitare i vignaioli addetti alla cura del vigneto circostante. Particolarmente graziosa e tranquilla, pur essendo nei pressi del paese di Palazzone, gode di una formidabile posizione da cui si domina la valle sottostante.

L'accurato restauro, rispettando le originarie destinazioni, ha lasciato intatte le caratteristiche del casolare. Gli spazi esterni, sapientemente utilizzati, permettono di godere anche di pratiche e carateristiche attrezzature (barbeque e forno). Può ospitare 3 persone.

Alla casa si accede attraverso una comoda rampa esterna che conduce alla cucina soggiorno dove protagonista è un grande camino. Da qui due porte indipendenti immettono da un lato alla camera matrimoniale e dall'altro alla camera singola (dove è possibile aggiungere un quarto posto letto).
