The Big Day

The View

Rach says, "A cozy, peaceful place, Castello di Velona has beautiful 360-degree views. From every location you look out over cultivated, manicured land, dotted with grapevines. Each morning, hundreds of darting, soaring swallows sing arias. The air smells sweet and rich. Everything you see, taste and feel seems more intense here."
