This impeccably restored, air conditioned farmhouse with hammam and Jacuzzi hot tub sits in a large wine-producing estate, surrounded by a picture postcard landscape of rolling hills and verdant valleys. The quaint village of Vorno and a selection of good quality restaurants is just down the road, or alternatively, you can treat yourself to the chef service and enjoy signature dishes accompanied by the estate’s own wine.
A highly entertaining activity for family and friends is to take some cookery lessons in the magnificent country-style kitchen. Enjoy your home-made meal on the garden terrace, overlooking the Vorno valley. After your meal you may like to retire to the bar area to sip a ‘proper’ Italian cappuccino or espresso, followed by a movie on the large flat screen TV, or spend some quiet time with a good book in the library; there is ample space for everyone here both inside and out.
The village of Vorno is conveniently located within a short walking distance of Antica Botte, offering a good choice of shops and restaurants. The surrounding countryside is simply mesmerizing and you can’t help but fall in love with it! Explore the area on foot, by bicycle or on horseback to really appreciate nature at the heart of one of Italy’s most celebrated regions.
