Salvatore is a brilliant cook. Tables are set up elegantly by Manuela in the courtyard for delicious breakfasts of freshly-squeezed juices, breads, tarts and cheeses, or omelettes and pancakes. Just ask. You can also have dinner on request which will combine Mediterranean and Eastern cuisine, or enrol on one of their cookery courses. Relax around the pool area, or out in the front courtyard on a sofa in the bamboo covered shade. Your privacy and peace are guaranteed.
On less than sunny days you can sit in the main living area with white walls and high ceilings giving a feeling of light and space. Bedrooms (one with a terrace, another with a private garden) are well-lit with pretty ‘cementine’ floor tiles; bathrooms have natural products, plastic free and zero waste.
The countryside is fairly flat round here, so it’s grand cycling and walking country – mainly olive groves lined with low stone walls. Return to an aperitivo in the aromatic garden.
