Wind up the steep single-track road through olive groves to Olga’s family home. There are huge valley views in every direction and a big welcome from the owners as well as two sleepy dogs.
Breakfast on homemade cakes, biscotti, local cheeses and salami on the veranda or at a big kitchen table. Olga will happily advise on restaurants and excursions, or you can book dinner on request.
Lazy afternoons can be spent by the beautiful pool, or test the healing waters at the nearby Grotta Giusti Spa. There’s excellent hiking straight from the door, a nature reserve for spotting wetland birds and medieval villages galore a short drive.
