From the second half of the 900 the main building ( now VACANZE IDEALI) was used as a residence of the Family Balestro ( Anselmo , Umberto and Pietro ) in the area that today covers accommodation " IL PADRONE " and " TIL CONTADINO " . To keep the memory intact , the other apartments on the ground floor " LA CANTINA ", " IL FIENILE ", " LA STALLA " would keep the name of the original use of the time.
The restructuring was designed to maintain the characteristics of the buildings of the past, with thick load-bearing walls and the stone facades , roofs with antique tiles . Internments some rooms have high ceilings , some have wooden beamed ceilings and terracotta tiles, others vaulted steel and brick. The floors are all made of brick.
