Owner Location Comment
Quite village location, close to other small villages steeped in history.
Many villages sell local produce and there are many farms selling wine in the area.
Sessame is known for its Brachetto wine a sparkling light, slightly sweet rose'
Within easy reach of smart small towns where you can shop at designer boutiques or simply sit watch life pass by and sample the local cafe delicacies.
