This romantic stone farmhouse is a renovated pre-earthquake warehouse, restored in 2020. The architectural features of the exterior have been preserved whilst inside the space has been transformed into a simple rustic open plan farmhouse.

Interior features include an original vaulted wooden ceiling and stone walls. Other quirky features include original light switches, exposed old fashioned copper pipes, a copper shower and a free standing stone basin. The farmhouse is entirely open plan; the light and airy space contains a double bed and shower, a partitioned toilet, a place for hanging clothes, a sofa and a small functional kitchen. Outside you can prepare dinner on the BBQ, there is a sink outside, and relax on the large patio and take in the spectacular mountain vista. To preserve the traditional architecture and respect the simplicity and aesthetics of the building and the environment we decided to add a fun and not an air condition in the property as the stone walls are very thick and keep the room cool.

The cottage can be reached by car and there is an open parking space for 2 cars

During your stay take the opportunity to have a free wine tasting experience. Visit our winery and sample our high quality organic wines and learn about the local and rare grape varieties the island offers, followed by a nice hike around our vineyards on the cliffs that enjoy amazing sea views.

We can organise for you as well a special olive oil experience and tasting and tour the over century old olive groves. Next to the house and the winery we have a vegetable garden where you can visit to collect fresh season vegetables.

Close to the village you will find wonderful beaches that you can reach by car or bike.
