Land is worked according to the principles of sustainable farming, as a means to obtain natural products, partially employed for the preparation of the dishes in the Resort’s Restaurant (for example, extra-virgin oil and fruits) and for the Callipo jams and compotes of the “Dalla nostra terra” line. Guests will have the chance to enjoy fresh fruits by harvesting them straight from plants.
