The historic borgo consists of several buildings and a small church. It has been renovated with great respect for the environment. The wall cooling in the rooms is particularly pleasant.
The comfortable rooms are located in the main building, il Castello, or in an annexe. Rooms in the annexe are well cared for and comfortable. The rooms in the main building are furnished with more luxury. Here, modern accessories and designer lamps are combined with beautiful fabrics and authentic elements.
