About the host

This place was born as a Botanical Garden cured by my parents, Donatella & Giorgio, for the past 30 years, hosting many different species of common and rare plants. We have different areas in our property: a botanical garden around the house, a horticulture garden 400m from home, different size of ponds, a really old Chestnuts forest, we also have few cats, a dog, dozen of chickens, few sheep and a donkey.
