Walking among the park's magnificent oaks and pines, we are more than likely to come accross our friends: the Pheasants and the Hares.
The rustling from the woods intensifies at dawn and at dusk; small rapid movements which stop for an instant, then move again, coming closer
towards us, big, beautiful ears twitch in every direction, and large eyes survey the parkland around the house. Look there! Breaking cover
from behind the bushes, the wild boar and the deer.They've made us wait a while, but it is in their nature to be cautious, and anyway,
this is their way of making their entrance into the ANTICA RISERVA ("Ancient Reserve").
Seeing them so tranquil, free and full of life,
is a breath-taking sight. After having eaten, they elegantly return to the depths of the woods, perhaps talking amongst themselves about us
and our cameras.
The Antica Riserva is a large country farmhouse with a swimming pool (12 x 6 m.), three hectares of parkland with woods, sign-posted paths,
and parking spaces within the park.
The restoration of the farmhouse (two years of meticulous work) was carried out with great attention to
detail: the kitchens, the bedrooms, and the bathrooms are large and elegantly furnished.
The atmosphere that will greet you here is very welcoming;
we are available to help with any advice or questions you may have.
The Antica Riserva is situated between Castiglione del Lago ( 3 km) and Pozzuolo (2 km), both with shops and Bank, Post-Office; is easily
reached by a picturesque bicycle ride.
