“The farmhouse stands on an agricultural holding with fields of hops and walnut trees that make up a rural landscape viewed from its stone-framed windows. It dates back to the 16th century and is made up of a classical three-bodied structure and a central room.”

The farmhouse is being converted into a hotel with ten suites designed for spiritual retreats, recovery and relaxation. The farm buildings will be used for massage areas, a sauna and a yoga room. Respectful restoration work is being performed, using natural materials inherited from the ancestral roots in the area. At the same time, the house is being equipped with all the necessary technology to provide thermal comfort, as well as a kitchen equipped with the latest tendencies.

CURIOUS ANECDOTES
