THE 2 COTTAGES
"Campo di Fragole" - Strawberry Fields. The name is taken from the well-known Beatles song. They are a separate structure from the main house, a former farm-building, beautifully converted and furnished in country style to give some double bedrooms, some with ensuite toilet and shower/bathroom. They have a living room and a fully equipped kitchen to give self-catering guests complete independence. The cottages have a pleasant terrace giving onto the swimming pool and garden. With its sheltered site and sunny aspect, you can swim from May to October. Area Details "Il Seminario" is near the small town of Sant’Agata dei Goti, in the hills 45 kilometers from Naples. Sant'agata is a charming medieval town, perched high above a small river on a rocky outcrop of volcanic stone. It has wonderful views over the surrounding countryside from the battlements all round, and its narrow streets are crammed with churches and historical sites while remaining unspoilt by commercialism.
It has excellent local restaurants, and is famous for its apples, wine and cheese.
