Interaction with guests
I will welcome the guests, but do not stay around. Of course I will be always available if the guest contact me for questions or help.
Other things to note
Guests can use home made olive oil and herbs from the garden. Our Italian neighbours can sell wine, eggs or vegetables from their garden. I have plenty travel books to plan excursions, thrillers in Dutch and English, romans, nonfiction books to read in your hammock. I wrote a nonfiction book about Italy (in Dutch) 'Italiaanse geheimen', available as E-book (Fosfor). There is no airconditioning, but the house has thick walls and in the hot summer months it's inside always nice and cool.
Guests have to respect this beautiful place. No campfires!! No rules against smoking.
From Mar 1 - May 31, 2018 the minimum stay is 6 nights.
