We lived peacefully in the italian countryside. Nearly no neighboors made this a place for tranquility and rest. The garden, pool and surroundings were lovely, the hosts were helpful and understanding, and the maintainance good.
When we visited the temperature passed 40 celsius. The lack of aircondition made the nights more restless so when visiting in summer beer this in mind.
It took us approx 40 mins to get to the beach. The peacefullness returning after the stay there was priceless. The mornings with yoga at the poolside, topped by a swim in the pool, and the evenings in total peacefullness, with the dark dark sky and the clear stars were great.
