Do nothing... if that's what you want!

Stay by the jacuzzi pool or take a relaxing dip, sip a chilled glass of prosecco, read one of the many books from the Countess’s extensive library or explore the house and its many artworks. In the winter, sit by the fireplace and sample one of the local liqueurs, the great Ella Fitzgerald in the background (or any other music that inspire you among the extensive collection on offer).
