Interaction with guests
We'll welcome you in person and show you around / hand in the keys. We live next door so we will be available when you need us. We'll be more than happy to give you trip/sightseeing ideas. We can also take you to places of interest, just to give you a lift and pick you up, or to give you a guided tour of tourist attractions nearby (Roccascalegna medieval Castle, waterfalls and source of the river Verde, archaeological sites from pre-Roman times and more). If you're interested in food and cooking, we offer foraging walks and you're always very welcome to our kitchen, whether you want a taste of a local cuisine using only organic/locally produced ingredients or you'd like to learn how to make the very best pizza or home-made pasta.
