Villalta is part of the farm estate of San Fabiano, about 200 m from the residence, one of the most prestigious and largest in the area that cultivates olives and grapes, producing an exceptional extra virgin olive oil and a prestigious nectar that you can taste and buy directly in the cellars on site. NB. In one wing of the villa, with completely independent access, live the caretakers who will not interfere with the use of the park and pool which are at the complete disposal of the guests.
