This country house is located in the Molise region of south central Italy, a largely unexplored part of the country and also one with very little pollution. According to the owners, it is the perfect place to inhale fresh and clean air, and to enjoy green hills and a crystal-clear sea.
The home belonged to their ancestors, who lived in it and worked the surrounding land. “There was no electricity at that time,” they remember, “so they used to sleep in a room together with cows, which warmed them up with the heat of their breath. They devoted their entire lives to the cultivation and growth of olives and grapes, to create the best extra-virgin olive-oil and wine.”
Memories of farm-to-table food, of delicious zabaione made with fresh eggs and sugar, and being pampered by grandparents have influenced the design of the home today.
“Our sweetest memories are related to this place and you can feel it by the positive energy in the air,” they add. “Thanks to what our loving past taught us, we are still used to living our lives in a simple way, to be touched by the small things, to value what really matters, and to respect and take care of nature and each other.”
Casa Tuja is the perfect place to slow your pace, and enjoy a down-to-earth lifestyle. Its interiors are minimal, with natural colors and sustainable materials such as wicker baskets, woven carpets, and wooden accessories.
The house is named “your house” in the regional dialect, reflecting the owners’ goal of making guests feel like they are at home. A pool is coming soon, but in the meantime, enjoy an open-air cinema among the olive trees!
This is a great vacation home rental in Italy for five guests.
