Vacation at Testalepre
Martina’s grandparents bought this place in 1985. It was part of a larger property, comprehending houses and little villages nearby, as Ripertoli and Sillano. The complex where we conduct our activity is organised around three buildings that once were: the granary, the stall with the apartments on the first floor and a deposit for farm machineries. These buildings today are respectively: the house of Martina’s parents, our house and the apartments of the agriturismo, and a multifunctional space with kitchen, wood hoven and common space that we call “loggiato”. All these buildings overlook the terrace (aia), wide and with a view on the valley. Our olive trees (1200) surround all the area, together with the garden and other fields that we are converting to orchard and vineyard. Beyond these fields there is the wood.
