the parking area, is the large stone building, framed by the green of the trees.

large flat area, in the middle of which there is the villa, surrounded by a
large lawn. The nice stone building matches the bright green of the lawn and the

grass that the inviting blue of the swimming pool opens.

as well as a well-equipped wood-burning oven, which you can use to experiment
making pizza or your own bread.
Beyond the lawn there is the side of the hill, along which you will find marked
trails that invite you to stroll in the woods.
