Lavacchio offers comfortable holiday accommodation in the old farmhouse (5 bedrooms/3 bathrooms) and converted stable (2 bedrooms/1 bathroom), a stunning pool with wooden loungers, a table tennis table, badminton and boules and space to roam amongst the terraces and chestnut groves. The kitchens are both well equipped, there are comfortable sitting rooms as well as covered dining terraces with BBQs and an old pizza oven. Local shops and restaurants are minutes away, seasonal organic produce is available and there is a resident chef who can prepare a candle-lit dinner on the terrace for you. The owners, Ailsa and Jamie Reynolds, live at Lavacchio and are willing to offer advice on where to shop and what to see, book restaurants and galleries or are happy to respect your privacy and leave you to your own devices. Cooking classes and guided walks are available. Lavacchio serves as a perfect base from which to explore and an idyllic haven in which to relax.
Both the farmhouse and the apartment have central heating and some logs are provided for the wood burner. Extra logs are available for a small charge. Both properties are suitable for children with cots, highchairs and a number of books provided. We also have a selection of DVDs available. Four very friendly cats, some pygmy goats, black sheep, ducks, hens and guinea fowl all provide a welcome diversion for children. For the pool there are a number of floats available and the area is safely fenced.
