Faithful, a bit gawky and a creature of habit, Qui Qui is the family goose, custodian of Il Canto del Maggio and its grounds. Qui Qui and Simona are a close-knit pair: the first keeps a watch on the gardens and the pool; Simona splits her time between the apartments and the restaurant. Their companionship illuminates the spirit of the place.
Our swimming pool, set in an ample olive grove, measures 22 x 6 meters with a section devoted to a hydromassage.
Within the grounds are flower beds with plants and herbs from our garden, an antique wrought iron gazebo covered with an arbor of vines amid wild strawberry bushes—a place to relax and enjoy the surrounding sounds of nature.
