The farm

The farm land covers 20 hectares and extends over hilly grounds, with areas at times difficult to reach and hardly fertile. Nevertheless, throughout the 19th and the beginning of the 20th century, this land supplied large families who lived in the cottages. Each family member worked for the farm. Men plowed the fields, sometimes with the help of the mythic white oxen. Loving care was given to the animals, as well as to the numerous olive trees and the vineyard. Sometimes, when I look at the individual olive trees which together make up this impressive olive grove, I wonder what they have seen throughout these years – historic, joyful and sad events – and think about how wonderful it would be if they were able to tell their stories.

Nowadays, parts of the farm land are turned into pasture for the horses of the Agriturismo, while in the rest of the domain one can find olive trees and the vineyard. Olive oil and wine are produced by the owners themselves and can be bought by guests of the Agriturismo. Depending on the season, one may also buy fresh fruit and vegetables from the garden.

Scattered across the domain, guests will discover flourishing fruit trees, which are not only beautiful, but which also offer delicious apples, figs, cherrys…

Besides horses, there are also small pigs and goats growing up in the Agriturismo’s stables, so that most of the meat needed for the restaurant is catered for on site.

Note, finally, that it is possible to purchase at the Agriturismo biological products, such as beans, chickpeas and honey.
