The main added value that Il Convio provides is above all else is that it is immersed in the countryside of this beautiful territory so rich in quality and variety of food.
A happy place because it is surrounded by meadows that invite you to lay down and relax your body and mind; by gentle hills just waiting to be photographed; by lines of well-kept vineyards and centuries-old olive groves that bring back childhood memories and the local typical products that is exported all over the world, and finally by a small lake. One of the things available to enjoy are the quiet woods where you can organize either a trek or simple walks to search for mushrooms, or even better, truffles, which can be found here throughout the year! Far from the city its noise, the animals that live in the surrounding forest often visit the beautiful farmhouse, and sometimes out of curiosity they let people approach them.
In short, you can quickly understand that from this small oasis you can enjoy the tranquillity of landscapes where nature is still intact and in harmony with traditions. Every minute spent is a real panacea against the frenzy of everyday life.
The building is a typical nineteenth-century farmhouse, finely and appropriately restored. It has maintained all the atmosphere and charm of its history providing plenty of space both indoors and outdoors. Although it can accommodate two hundred people inside and as many outside, it still has a very intimate ambiance that puts those who stop to eat completely at their ease.
The interior has very comfortable rooms and in front of the entrance, a large patio opens on the garden where from the tables you can enjoy looking at the beautiful wisteria.
