KNOW BEFORE YOU GO

The estate has belonged to the Gondi family since 1592 and on its 315 hectares that include vineyards where the grapes are harvested by hand and made into wine in the ancient vaulted cellars and olive groves that produce two types of extra-virgin olive oil of highest quality, including Laudemio.
The holiday cottages here are traditional and full of character and range from the charming little cottage for two that is Rosmarino, with its lovely garden and fine views, to the large spacious villa that is Poggio Martini with six bedrooms including one in its tower with a splendid view of the surrounding countryside. Each of the houses is different, but all are as characteristic as the other. All are comfortably furnished and have gardens, furnished loggia's or terraces where you can sit out and dine alfresco.
