  • There is no street lighting at Lavacchio but paths are illuminated with solar lights.
  • You will hear various rural sounds at night, from boar to barking deer, screech owls to cicadas.
  • The owners, Jamie and Ailsa, live above La Stalla and are here to make your stay as comfortable as possible.
  • The farm cats love company and may try to invade your privacy.
