About La Dolce Vita

The perfect antidote to soul-less hotel stop-overs

Exploring the interior of La Doice Vita is an adventure in itself.

The unique decoration and furnishings in each of our guest rooms provide an eclectic and stimulating escape from the hum-drum routine of daily life, forming what one guest described as the "perfect antidote to soul-less hotel stop-overs".new-sign-ldv-2

A 3-story village house dating back to 1816, La Dolce Vita was once three separately owned structures. During the years when olives were ripe for picking & pressing into virgin olive oil, the original owner of the outermost building purchased the back section of the house, closed trap doors and exterior windows, and opened up the interior to create a larger home for his family. As the area grew richer in the times of the great grape revival, the owner's son was able to add the last interior section, which was once a barn, creating what is now a complete village home.

The house's rooftop terrace is the perfect spot to kick back and relax with a glass of local wine while admiring the views over the local vineyards and across to the 14th century church. Or escape to the veranda to spend a quiet moment where, even on rainy days, you can enjoy the open space of the terrace while remaining indoors, dry and cozy.
