The villa sits in its own private wooded area. There are two outside dining areas to choose from and a dining area in the kitchen. The dining areas outside offer views of the gardens and fruit trees where you will find wild rocket, asparagus, mushrooms, lemons, olives, oranges, peaches, apricots and figs. You will also find a pear/apple fruit. Just behind the villa is a vineyard and olive grove.
There is a barbecue, sun loungers and rattan furniture. A large umbrella compliments the outside area and allows you to enjoy the cool shade whilst eating fresh locally produced food.
Additionally there is an area to enjoy a glass of wine or coffee by the outside fountain with sofa and chairs. On the patio are sun loungers which attract the sun all day. Relax in the hammock by the old fountain and enjoy the shade of the four large oak trees. There is nothing better than reading a book whilst enjoying a cold beer or glass of wine looking up at the trees and enjoying the cool shade.

Seated areas outside Villa Sofia
Sitting outside Villa Sofia is a joy. Not only do you get to enjoy the comfortable dining areas but there is an old fountain, table and sofa under the four oak trees to relax in. If that isn’t enough then the private pool is situated in the garden area. The Pool is open from May to October each year. Sun loungers are available on the patio. Between the trees, you will find the hammock which is just glorious to relax in.
For young ones, there is a small sandy area with swings, see saw, small table and chairs and scooters. All these areas are private with the nearest neighbour over 100 meters away. All you can hear are the birds and the wind through the trees. It is very private, secluded and a wonderful place to relax and enjoy nature in the warm sunshine.
Also, available for use is the barbecue on the patio. It is a large barbeque and we tend to use wood to light it. It gives such a lovely flavour to the food. Definitely worth lighting.
To the rear of Villa Sofia are views of the local mountains and San Pasquale monastery and the wooded area. If you take a walk behind the villa you will see olive groves, vineyards and some vegetables being grown. Worth the walk.
Villa Sofia is a two-minute walk from the local Il Cortesano restaurant. This is a lovely restaurant with friendly staff, outstanding food, and very good wine. It is well priced and worth visiting. As one of our recent guests said “We particularly liked the local pizzeria, where we were always well looked after and continually shocked by the small bill at the end of each evening”.
Further down the road is Il Sauro restaurant where you can sit outside enjoying some wonderful food and taking in the breath-taking views. Sitting next to a local vineyard, the restaurant has the most spectacular views of the mountains and San Pasquale monastery. Set about 20 yards away from the road it offers peaceful surroundings and food which is good. Further afield in Faicchio are supermarkets, bars, and local shops to explore.
