A shepherd closeby makes a highly appreciated cheese from his sheep milk and is willing to show you how he makes it. You can buy organic olive oil , free range eggs and chickens directly from the producers and you can ask the lady in the nearby hamlet to prepare their fantastic lasagne and other specialities for you. She would be willing to give cooking lessons at our house (URL HIDDEN) Italian.
The house is the ideal place to rest and enjoy the Italian life style or study and work in a group given the ample space.
