From the tiny village lane, a paved slope leads onto a gravelled terrace with off-road parking for several cars, beyond which are the gardens of 31 Decontra and the cottage itself.  The gardens are set on a gentle incline and offer wonderful views of Monte Amaro, Monte Morrone and the Orfento Gorge. They includes areas of lawn and natural meadow, and a pair of attractive stone terraces with shady pergolas: perfect for lunching al fresco or enjoying an evening drink and admiring the beautiful views. The cottage itself appears to rise directly from the natural bedrock, which is speckled with alpines and rock roses. Close to the house, two tiny walled gardens are planted with roses, lavender and herbs, and provide shaded seating and peaceful corners.
