The roads up to the farmhouse can be quite twisty and tourney, so if you suffer from travel sickness or have small children it may be a good idea to bring some travel pills.

There is a small lake not far from the farmhouse: ..... A lovelly family from Denmark explored the area and left me these comments....'there is a small lake if you continue on the small road coming from St Giorgio, (I believe second road to the right if you skip the driveway to La Casa Rosa. and continue about 800 m). I went there with Ella, talked to the nice farmers whom the lake belongs to, and were allowed to do some fishing. Caught a small carp, but there is bigger ones too, and certainly other species as well. Hooked one big thing, but didn't land it - fishermens tales, you know!'
