The nearest small town is Trestina where guests do their main shopping, and Citta di Castello is about 20 mins drive with its daily indoor market and main outdoor market on Thursdays and Saturdays. The beautiful ancient town of Cortona is about 45 min drive, and Perugia and Sansepolcro can be accessed by train.

The nearest town Trestina has 3 supermarkets each with a large deli where guests can buy all the ingredients for preparing delicious lunches and dinners, much of the produce is locally grown in the season. One supermarket has fresh fish, and they all have extensive bakery and meat departments - there is no frozen meat available in this part of Italy, so the beef, lamb and chicken are all fresh.
There is a wide selection of bread, the main local loaves are baked with no salt the local people have become used to unsalted bread since salt was an expensive commodity- so guests need to ask for "pane salato" if this is not to their taste!
