Although we were so very busy during July and August, we thoroughly enjoyed getting to know so many of our friendly guests.  Some evenings we organised BBQ’s or Pizza/Wine Tasting evenings which went down very well, even if there were sometimes a few sore heads on the mornings after.


We are planning to have our own wood-fired Pizza Oven built by next year, so that guests can have a go at making and cooking their own pizzas.  Should be fun !!!

We were particularly gratified that all our guests seemed to enjoy their stay here at “Tre Cancelle” and enjoyed exploring the local area.  We very much look forward to keeping in contact and continuing many of these new found friendships. 

The numerous local beaches, although somewhat busy in the peak season,  were still very popular with families, offering plenty of golden sunshine, sandy beaches and crystal clear, temperate waters. All our British guests commented on how good it was to get away from the rain and gloom of the UK’s disappointing summer.

Also, interestingly, Itri’s Aqua Park outdoor swimming centre also proved to be a special attraction for families, with its large pool surrounded by a sun terrace with beds and parasols to hire. The pool slopes from shallow to deep with diving boards. At the shallower end offers there are slides for the younger children and 3 water flumes (with speeds ranging from slow, medium and  fast).  It is said that there are  “Views are to die for” and the restaurant serves light lunches and tasty afternoon snacks. Also the terrace on the lower level below the pool has attractive covered picnic areas and also a children’s play area.
