...looking for an agriturismo in Southern Italy?
Colli Augusti is the Country House of my dear friend Alessandra. Sandra and I grew up together and she has been one of my best friends for over twenty years, since the beginning of high school. If you are planning a trip to Italy and want to relax in the peaceful country of Southern Italy, her agriturismo is the place to go!
Sandra's Country House is very close to the cute village of Santa Croce, close to Benevento and in the heart of Samnium. Within one hour driving you can reach Naples and the Amalfi Coast, a little more and you can reach the islands of Capri or Ischia.
This is a nice alternative to other touristy and more advertised destinations, equally beautiful, definetely more relaxing than Tuscany. You will find incredible food with the best lamb, 'salumi', cheeses, and porcini mushrooms. And the wine is unbelievable! Everything will be prepared using old country traditions. Alessandra's hospitality will make a big difference in making your stay at Colli Augusti unforgettable.
