In the heart of the Sasso Barisano, Antichi Volumi are transformed into a cradle to cuddle and make the occupants feel at ease, where luxury is represented by the simplicity and comfort of the rooms. A deconsecrated church is the common place for guests, here they can have a buffet breakfast served every morning, talk or taste something in the sitting room where a wood-fired ceramic stove is lit daily in the cold seasons. Nearby there are various craft activities for the tufo labor and other small shops where the Masters and apprentices carry out ancient crafts. Local and typical restaurants in the surroundings are numerous. A few meters from the Casa Di Ortega, from the Monastery of Sant'Agostino with its dominant and panoramic position and with the underlying small green area equipped.
