The heart of the Cellar: the Barrels . Here, where there is the result of the work of the pressing , there is a accommodation that can accommodate a family of up to 5 people. An integral part of the room is a terrace nestled in the woods.
The Cellar, an accommodation full of history. Created as a place to preserve the wine, during the Second World War becomes a refuge for women and children in the area. Today it gives back to the sun, nature and to welcome our guests.
The lapilli , small fragments of lava from our volcano , give the name at this accommodation as fire and heat can be a source of hospitality that characterizes us.
