foliage of a small oak forest interrupts the cultivated landscape.
And it is in this peaceful setting that you will spend your vacation!
The beautiful swimming pool is surrounded by lawn and equipped with sun-lounging
beds and umbrellas that invite you to sit back and relax. From here, as you
stretch out in the sunshine, your view scans across an uninterrupted horizon of
gentle hills covered with vegetation, or comes to rest on the simple and elegant
architecture of the villa and of the complex.

hectares (about 740 acres), and during your stay at Casa Beata B you will be
guests of this estate.
The estate produces a famous wine and olive oil, and you will be able to acquire
these products, among others, during your stay. Upon request, you can also visit
