Donata's House

Donata's house, for 10 persons

Donata's house offers all the special charm, character and seclusion of a private home and garden, with the additional advantage of having the restaurant, tennis, playground and other children's activities within easy reach.

At the far corner of Chiarentana is the house lived in by Donata, one of the two Origo sisters. When, in the early eighties, Donata began to renovate the square fortified farmhouse for many centuries occupied by 7 peasant families, an open informal garden was designed to blend into the surrounding countryside, and rambling roses, shrubs and bulbs planted to soften the stone-flagged courtyard shaded by a large linden tree.

Two sides of the courtyard became the home of Donata and her children, who still live there when the whole family gets together.

The garden and pool are looked after by tge gardener. From 8.30 to 2.30 the services of a maid/cook who has been working for Donata for many years are included. She will prepare breakfast and on request some light lunches with fresh products from the vegetable garden and orchard. She can also be available to cook and serve evening meals, at an additional cost.
