“The purpose of life is to live it, to taste experience to the utmost, to reach out eagerly and without fear for newer and richer experience.”
Of course, the best is when friends show you around to discover places and things you never knew existed like this inner courtyard with all of the wood and metal tools and equipment polished, restored and inviting to the eye and imagination.
The courtyard has a museum of sorts, a quaint store of local products (wines, honey, breads, all types of jam, jellies and preservatives, books of the region and more,) a café, a rustic inn and a fabulous restaurant upstairs.
The plants that overhang the lovely patio are all dormant for now, but just at the point of exploding with leaves and color.
On the second floor leading to the restaraunt, there is a corredor along which antique farm tools and furniture sit alongside cozy tables and places to rest and visit.
Strands of garlic and baskets hang under the beams for storage and easy access.
