Location

This retreat will take place in Gubbio, Italy. The organic farm Fattoria la Torre, develops into a large plot of 170 hectares of land covered by woods, meadows, and fields. It was founded in the early 1990s by the owner's desire to eat healthy and homemade foods. Over the time, the estate has grown, and the will to produce their own flour, meat, wine, and oil has always increased. Therefore, a high-quality product, respecting the soil and the tradition of the past, has been obtained.

Things to do (optional)

Each season gives its beauties, and at Villa Dama, there is always an opportunity to experience and to carry in your heart! In the summer, one can spend time reading in the shade of the old olive tree in the garden, walking within the rows of vineyards surrounded by the silence of nature, or sunbathing in the pool. Jacuzzi, steam room, and sauna offer you relaxing moments.

Sports enthusiasts can go mountain biking or walking on the trails that cross the agritourism, take part in table tennis competitions, or play football in the five-a-side football field. But if you wish to discover the secret of good food, in spring Luciana and Simone, exciting cooking, butchery, and dairy farming classes are offered. Kids can enjoy the outdoor space by playing in one of the wooden playgrounds.

Guests should not miss the grapes and olive harvest activities in the autumn. Throughout the year, the amazing tour of the agritourism on the "agribus" pulled by the tractor or on the military jeep is a good occasion for a close-up view of the animals in the farm and the woods.
