The property has grounds of more than an acre, that have been turned into a delightful park brimming with flowers and plants of every variety. Majestic cypresses and mulberry trees, together with the surrounding peaceful farmland, give complete privacy to the property. Guests can enjoy outdoor tables and pergolas, shaded by trees, to soak up the beautiful panorama, the summer warmth or eat al fresco. There are also winding pathways to explore and an exquisite gazebo covered with climbing plants, as well as a swimming pool hidden by cypresses and a variety of roses. It is also possible to use the old bread oven for barbecues or to make pizza under the stars!
