The house of IL CANTICO is the heart of one hectare olive- and lemongrove. It stands
on the edge of a valley, where you can hear the running water of the Canneto source.
From the house the small fishervessels on the Adriatic Sea are visible and when the
wind is blowing from the sea you can hear the breakers on the beach.
Above the valley buzzards and other predatorbirds roam the area regularely. In spring
the hopbird can be heard and sometimes even be seen. The year around work is in progress
in the orchyards and the smell of burning wood of olive trees goes as a sweet vale
through the valley. From the spatious terrace you keep watching the paradise like
view over the valley and the hills aside and behind the house.
Between Rodi and San Menaio are about 5 kms of sandy beach where it's very lively
during the summer season with mainly italian bathing guests. When one and a half
kms climbing and descending is too much for a non-naturist beach there is always
the big swimmingpool in our orchyard where naturist swimming is the standard.
In the orchyard around the swimmingpool there are a few places for camping which
are by choice more or less close the the house or the pool.
Due to the limitation in the number of guests which can be present on the enclosure
at the same time, staying in the appartment or camping in the orchyard is extremely
suited for people who enjoy tranquillety, space and privacy.
