“Vittorio Serengelli has converted his grandfather’s farm in rural countryside into a rather special agriturismo. Its riding school, stables, working farm, gymnasium and swimming pool make it ideal for energetic families and fresh-air fiends. Food for the unpretentious restaurant, Le Volpi (a few hundred metres away) is produced on the organic farm. Rooms are simple and rustic, with beams, tiled floors and antique furniture; two have sleeping platforms for children.”
