- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- La Fratta is our home and the result of a dream that we had cultivated for a long time: to live in a dimension where making art is lived with the movement of nature that surrounds us. The fields, the seasons, the birth and rebirth of the oak and the blade of grass, the earth that is substance and form, marks and prints made by hands, natural elements like water and air, fire ally of secret heat….

The people we meet at La Fratta are, like us, attracted to a world in which you can live in nature, art and friendship.These people are our friends, ... more less
