If you enjoy cooking the kitchen is equipped with everything you could possibly need, from a food processor, good knives and chopping boards, to an assortment of oven dishes and tableware in all shapes and sizes. There are good quality saucepans and frying pans for whether you are cooking for 2 people or 12. The layout of the kitchen, with a peninsula, means that companionable cooking is always possible.
There is an excellent coffee machine and the pull out larder will always be stocked with basics.
The dining table seats 10 comfortably and the kitchen / dining room opens onto the courtyard garden where the outside table can extend to seat 14+ comfortably.
If you are in party mode there are decanters for wine, a wine rack stocked with local wines which you can select at your leisure (just pay cash for what you drink at the end of your stay), a cocktail shaker and glasses and the fridge also has an icemaking capacity. Of course there are wine coolers and ice buckets as well as glasses for everything from water to beer, champagne, white or red wine, prosecco and limoncello or digestivi.
