There are many special places where you can sit and relax to drink in the magic of 1000 year old stone walls and massive hand hewn doors. The terrace or back lawn invites you to stay with a glass of wine or cup of coffee and enjoy views of the ancient village and surrounding hills and vineyards. The courtyard lawn and garden of jasmine, impatiens, sweet alyssum and masses of pink geraniums inspires lingering and relaxing with a loved one. Under the vine portico, especially at night with the old stone walls illuminated, one can fall in love all over again.
Is there anything more enchanting than listening to the soft gurgling of a fountain and gazing into the turquoise blue of rippling water? It is a particular joy when it is combined with the surprise of overlooking a stunning Baroque chuch and belltower sitting atop a medieval village and taking in sweeping views of forest and vineyards. It is the perfect spot from which to watch the sun going down in the late evening, dropping behind the medieval church tower and then the far hills, burnishing golden red the rows of vines.
