The refurbishment of these centuries-old houses and the harmonious blend of the structures’ granite with the refined decor are an astonishing surprise. The feel is rustic yet extremely comfortable. From panoramic terraces, you can marvel at the region’s landscape, replete with hills, deep valleys and meandering rivers.
