To arrive at the house you must follow a steep and windy road that is not suitable for heavily loaded or low vehicles as it is bumpy however the last part is paved. Despite the desolate surroundings you are not left to yourself as the sweet owner Caterina is happy to show you the olive groves and other interesting things. She speaks English and is a graduate of philosophy. The climb on the steep road is surely worth it for the view and peace and quiet at the top!
