Great landscape and quiet surrounding

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at the smaller house IL Girasole for two weeks. We were with two kids (9 months and 5 years). The house is sitting on a hill and is surrounded by farm fields. The house is approx. 1km from the asphalt road and 500 meters from the other house (there is no direct neighbors- the nearest local people are 1km away). The gravel road leading to the house looks like a private road so there is nobody passing by.

I would describe the location as remote with great view.

The house itself looked like recently renovated. The outside pool looked new and was rather large. It was maintained every day by a keeper.

The house was well equipped with summer chairs, BBQ, towels, etc. Maybe not luxurious but OK. Only the kitchen utensils were bit tired and very basic.

I recommend this house for those looking for quiet farm house experience not so far from the sea (12 km).

I was only missing mosquito nets in every window and door. Like in every farm house there were many flying/walking creatures of different kind.
