About Chris and Jo Verster
We came on holiday to Abruzzo in 2011 from Cape Town, South Africa, and fell in love with the region, the people, and the simplicity of lifestyle. We transformed the Villa from an old farmhouse, into a breezy light and spacious home.We produce about 100 liters of virgin cold pressed olive oil a year from our single estate. We reside in our home which is about 90 meters from the villa, so are here to welcome guests personally, and to give you a complimentary starter food basket.
From then on, our involvement is just to assist you with any queries you might have.
