One of the most beloved holidays is definitely the italian Ferragosto: the summer festival which falls on August the 15th and that is often celebrated with a party with friends, trips and evenings of dancing and fireworks. The name comes from the Latin phrase feriae Augusti, ie the rest of August: a feast founded precisely by the emperor in 18 BC and which was intended to connect the other holidays of the summer months to provide a well-deserved relax after the efforts of the harvest.
Even today Ferragosto is celebrated as a day off from work with parties, family moments and a little ‘relaxation and recreation. And which place could be better to do it than our beautiful Locanda Le Due Querce? Our beautiful apartments are at your disposal to stay in the hills, refreshed from the valley and surrounded by greenery and peace. At the Inn you will not have only one bedroom, but a small apartment with a cozy sitting room and a kitchen for breakfast. This way the children can have their afternoon nap in the bedroom while their parents enjoy the living room or the veranda.
In addition to our beautiful rooms you can make use of our swimming pool surrounded by 1000 square meters of garden. An oasis with sun beds and umbrellas for reading, sunbathing, take a nap or just relax. At the pool bar guests can order drinks and snacks of all kinds, while our restaurant will offer a typical menu of Ferragosto specially designed to whet your palate. Our own appetizers, two first courses, meat of choice and desserts of the territory, with an option for children and the opportunity to spend a different day all together!
Do you want to make your weekend even more unique? In the area surrounding the inn will take place events from the traditional charm and suitable for the whole family:
