Valentina and Giovanni
Brother and sister team Valentina and Giovanni Guccione take care of their family farm, DARA GUCCIONE BIOFARM, handed down through generations since the eighteenth century. It was Valentina who, moved by the desire to share the charm of this estate, created a unique rural hospitality system. Her offerings have nature at their core and are perfectly integrated with the farm that her brother Giovanni runs.
