The Friuli Venezia Giulia region:

Our country mansion is located in the Friuli Venezia Giulia region, home to the beautiful lagoon city of Venice and the region’s capital Trieste. Tucked away between the Alps to the north and the Adriatic Sea to the south, the Friuli Venezia Giulia is one of Italy’s last hidden treasures. The region is rich in history with age-old fairs and country festivals enlivening the Province throughout the year, allowing visitors to get a taste of the traditions, popular beliefs and sacred portrayals of the people of the area. There are countless cities and towns worth visiting, from Venice and Trieste, to Spilimbergo, Aquileia, Grado, and Udine.

Our village is set in the Magredi nature park in the province of Pordenone, at the foot of the beautiful Friulian Dolomites. The Magredi is a 300 km² large nature park characterised by vast meadowlands, wide, undisturbed spaces, and striking stones creating an exceptional environment. The  dry grasslands, known as “Magredi” were declared an Area of Special Protection by the European Union which is also famous for its vegetation and rare birds.

Part of the protected area is used for the cultivation of vines. The cool winds combined with the sunny weather and calcium-rich marlstone soils give the grapes their strong mineral notes resulting in the famous Magredi wines – beautifully crisp whites.
