    "Extraordinary experience..."

    05/16/2019

    My visit to Torre Cocciani was delightful. It's not the most convenient location but it's worth venturing out to if you really want to experience the Mediterranean lifestyle. The warm & generous hospitality of Atanasio Miracco along with his parents, Giuseppe & Maria, made my experience there exceptional.

    My Italian language skills are very limited so thanks to google translate we were able to communicate effectively. My room was very cozy. In the morning I looked forward to opening the shutters to a beautiful view of vineyards, olive groves, pasture land & snow capped peaks in the distance as I cheerfully greeted whomever might be within hearing distance with "buon giorno." They graciously shared their culture, cuisine & lifestyle with me including taking me to observe cheese being made, to where they have their olives processed & to a nearby cantina to sample wine; however, I did find their wine to be quite tasty especially when paired with their homemade cuisine It was a real treat to enjoy all the tasty food knowing that they had produced it from their land & with their own hands- the pasta & baked goods were incr"edible".

    Just wondering around the farm meeting the animals with Maria & eating the fresh beans Giuseppe shared from the garden along with oranges from their trees felt special sensing how they live in sync/harmony with nature. I just wish I'd had more room in my suitcase so I could've brought some of their products home with me- maybe next visit which I hope will be sooner rather than later.

    "Here is paradise on earth - a wonderful place"

    04/18/2019

    We arrived and were immediately 'with friends'. The family is very warm-hearted and attentive and very fond of children. The rooms are wonderfully clean and stylish. The bathrooms are super clean and very nicely furnished. Best of all, Maria, Giuseppe and Atanasio are warm and friendly - what wonderful people who really live their hospitality. The wine - a poem; the dinner - a feast; the pasta - to 'kneel down'; the olive oil - biological and beyond any description (it's a pity that there are only 10 stars to be awarded.) The place, the view, the people here, the nature, the animals on the farm - we will surely come back soon. We have found our second home. Tara Serafina, Heidemarie and Dr. Lukas Kalcsics-Gallei
