    The farm is situated in a lovely setting for both the historical value of the buildings and for the beauty of nature (park and animals). The lady who hosted us was very friendly, the rooms are clean and spacious and the breakfast was fine.

    "Corte Virgiliana"

    07/17/2011

    We had a very nice week in the Corte Virgiliana. Manor and palace are beautiful. We were very warmly received by Capo and personally introduced to the history of the place. The apartment is very tastefully decorated, in the garden you can relax wonderfully. Thank you for the great breakfast with fresh milk and homemade jam. We will come back! Many thanks to Nicoletta and Ferdinando for their hospitality and good luck!
