Lo Scopeto is a stunning and imposing house providing lots of space and privacy. The location is beautiful and easily accessed from a number of international airports. We love the great food, stunning views and charming locals.

You can set off straight from the house and walk on designated paths (or off them), straight into the National Park. You can see buzzards, eagles, deer etc.
