About Cosetta Scipioni

In 1995 we bought this old cottage and its original name was “Il Corso” (The Path), because it was a site that everybody used as a path including the ancient Romans. We have begun to renovate the house trying to maintain as much as possible its original structure, that probably dates back to 15th century, and on our wedding day, July 1997, we came to live in this big for only two people! This cottage is surrounded by nature that is its predominant element and feeling part of it is very gratifying. Later we decided to rent part of it, not only because it was truly too big, but also because we wanted other people to enjoy so much chestnut trees, the deer in the early morning along the path, the sunset of the evening that lights up the contours of the surrounding valleys, the panoramic swimming pool that is accessed through a walkway adorned by lavender in bloom, a variety of multicoloured butterflies, the smell of the mosses, the intense yellow colour of the brooms and the lively red colours of the rosa canina (commonly known as dog rose). In this setting of peace and tranquillity, it is possible to find a perfect harmony between nature and oneself and even easier for those that wish to share with us the experience of the sahaj meditation, in other words spontaneous meditation. Other people before us have lived in this place and we wonder if they were aware of how fortunate they were to live in such a wonderful place as we are, a magic place that satisfies all senses.

What makes this apartment unique

For us , Villa il Corso it's a special place. You get up in the morning , you seat outside in the garden for your breakfast while you hear only birds. Or you take a walk on the wild paths surrounded by wild flowers , so marvellous.

You are far from the city noise , away from your problems, from your bad thoughts. Just enjoy nature and remind yourself you are connected with such beautiful green world.

Un Week end Tanta Roba

  • 5 of 5

Siamo stati in questo magnifico posto per il week end del 2 Giugno con un gruppetto di amici,ognuno nel suo appartamento con i propri servizi,ma con la possibilità di pranzare e cenare tutti insieme!!Sistemazioni tipiche della zona con ogni confort come a casa tutto immerso in un paesaggio naturalistico spettacolare!! Vale la pena staccare la spina per un pó di giorni,fare un tuffo in piscina,rilassarsi nella pace più assoluta e conoscere Cosetta e Fabrizio,i proprietari del casale..gentili e molto disponibili ci hanno accolto con molto entusiasmo e ci hanno fatto sentire come a casa!!!Consigliato a gruppi di amici con bambini..

Amazing autumn

  • 5 of 5

We have been here 5 days in October, autumn colours are special in this period and my children loved looking for chestnuts, but I had to promise them to come back once the pool will be open again. The house is quite, clean and the kitchen is really well equipped! Also the owners are very kind and helpfull for any necessity. I specially recommend this place to those with children, so many space all arround, one horse, few pets, and if you are lucky enough, you can see bambi deer in early morning.
