The most important thing in an Italian home is its Kitchen, and this is exactly the same for us at Novanta! All of the food on our table is sourced from local farmers, businesses, neighbours and friends. Everyday we prepare fresh, delicious meals filling our village with the smells of hundreds of years of tradition! From our original wood fired ovens to our overflowing vegetable garden you won’t go far without your tastebuds being tingled!
We see food as a connector to the people and to nature. By connecting with local producers we can offer our guests high quality food, coming straight from the land. Our food plan is available for only €245,- guest/week. This includes a full breakfast, lunch and a 4-course dinner every day – so you don’t need to think about anything during your stay! Alcoholic drinks, soda and juice are excluded. Children under 4 eat for free. Children from age 4 – 12 €105 per week. Of course if you feel like exploring the area and dining in one of the local restaurants one day – no worries! We will simply reimburse you.
We have all sorts of exciting things happening in our little village. The experiences we have in store for you will sweep you up in local culture and leave you feeling like you’re part of our huge Italian family! Some of the activities we offer are foraging for truffles, archery, yoga and lunch at our neighbour and organic butcher Fabrizio’s beautiful hilltop farm!
