Utterly unwind in this tiny hamlet with uninterrupted views of the woodland surrounding you. You’re in the grounds of a medieval castle and you’ll feel decidedly romantic. Pale cream stone encases this former olive mill and once inside an informal elegance makes hours spent lounging on the comfortable sofas easy. Plonk yourself next to the pile of books and games and indulge.
Seasonal fruits, the estate’s own wine and day one’s breakfast comes as standard. Break your fast on the private patio or picnic at your favourite spot – with 1200 hectares you’ve plenty to choose from. The country-style kitchen makes cooking a breeze. Rikke can organise a local to whip up something seasonal and delicious – you’re welcome to join in and master some local dishes.
You’re in isolation here but adventure can be found; explore local hamlets on foot or rented bike and a train can take you to Rome and Florence for gelato and city life.
