In Gravanago there is an air of renewal ... a new farmhouse in Oltrepo Pavese
In the Oltrepo Pavese, in Gravanago there is an air of renewal in our farmhouse ... even if spring is still far away. In the middle of the hills, between vineyards and cultivated fields, in the winery of Paolo Goggi, people work frantically to transform the "old cellar" into a place of "hospitality", the restaurant of the new farmhouse.
Farmhouse in the Oltrepo Pavese? Yes, last summer the renovation of a small country house, the old paternal house, began to create a structure where you can spend your holidays in the name of relaxation.
It is located in the same courtyard as the cellar, where there are the bedrooms and the bathroom on the second floor and a space with a large fireplace on the first used as a breakfast area. The rural atmosphere can also be felt in the details of the spaces, furnished with furniture from the late 1800s and painted in white or soft colors to create a quiet and relaxing atmosphere.
There are only three rooms, two doubles and one single: an iron spiral staircase connects them with the first floor. The environment is comfortable and welcoming. Outside ... still to be decided, even the ideas that could be realized are many: for example, equipping the outdoor spaces with porches and verandas.
But let's get back to food ... in addition to a well-equipped kitchen with services, there is a large room with "old-fashioned" tables and chairs that can accommodate up to 100 people. All around, there are the old concrete barrels that take us back to the main activity of the Paolo Goggi company. With the arrival of summer, it will also be possible to eat outdoors.
