On the terrace below the patio we have installed a pizza oven and 2 large barbeques. The pizza oven has been a wonderful addition and is good not only for making your own pizzas but also full meals including roasts, vegetables, bread etc. The barbeques are substantial with ample space for a meal for the whole household grilled over wood or charcoal.
Want a relaxing evening at home? We havea choice of cooks who will take over our kitchen and prepare anything from a simple Tuscan meal to a sophisticated celebration menu. The price depends on the menu but ranges from 25 to 35 euros per head for a 3 course meal.

Our good friends and neighbours Huw and Sandra Evans are bee-keepers extrodinaire. They are deeply involved in research into bee behaviour. Huw is an electronic engineer and Sandra a botanist. They have developed ground-breaking high-tec methods of monitoring bees within the hive to predict events such as swarming.
They keep their bees entirely organically and produce three crops of simply delicious honey - Acacia which is virtually transparent it is so pure, with a fragrant flavour, Chestnut which is a rich dark brown with a distinctive almost smoky flavour and Mille Fiore, deliciously sweet, varying according to the year's predominant flower crop.
If you are interested in trying some during your stay, or taking some home, contact Huw.
