Le Occare farmhouse is surrounded by a large shady fenced garden, including a little swimming pool, and by a 38000 square meters wooden area. Here you can taste the freshness and the relaxing atmosphere of the countryside. You can just relax in the garden and in the pool, walk in the wood searching for wild flowers and fruits, truffles, mushrooms and officinal herbs or go for birdwatching If you walk along a wooden trail you can reach two little ponds, once used to macerate the hemp, here you can look for herons and wild ducks. If you wish, you can have a bicycle to wonder around, with a short trip you can reach the nearby Verginese Castle with its Brolo and Belriguardo Castle.

At night you'll find very good conditions to look at the stars, with very low light pollution. A little telescope and some binoculars are available for our guests.
