We arrived in early May for a week at this quaint and interesting family owned Olive Farm. The living quarters were outstanding. We stayed in the small hunters cottage overlooking La Sciolta. Gabriella is a great hostess and very accomodating. The location is close to everything. The people were wonderful and friendly. It is a great place to relax or explore the surroundings. If you are a cyclist there are many interesting places to bike and vehicles are friendly to bikers. All of the recommended restaurants in the area were outstanding.
