We’re including one year free membership of the association essential for being able to take part in
the restoration works. This will be organised on arrival.
You’ll be staying in a beautiful old stone farm cottage
within the property. It has been completely renovated
and has double, twin and threebed bedrooms,
several bathrooms and showers, a cosy kitchen and
living room both with hearths, a large veranda and
patio with a marble table and panoramic views of
the countryside and a distant Spoleto. You’ll mainly
be selfcatering as a group but with a delicious all
Italian lunch provided by our hosts.
On arrival there will be ‘l’aperitivo di benvenuti’ (welcome aperitif) to
meet each other and to introduce the week’s plan. On the final day there
will be an olive oil tasting at the cottage.
