Le Sciare is the national headquarters of Social Advancement’s Association “Alveare”.
It is therefore the place for meetings of associated headquarters’ managing boards, for conferences promoted by the association, and for ensuring a possible common old age to women working for Alveare, and their friends.
Therefore, our Guesthouse is not just a B & B like many others, open to anyone: it is only for women, and particularly for the women who share the project of the association, and appreciate and support its intents. For this reason we do not ask prices for the rooms but free contributions, starting from a minimum for each room or accommodation. Contributions, to Le Sciare for the association, that will allow other activities’ impulse in the area.
There are several rooms for our guests. Most of them (Aria, Mantagnata, Brunese, Stelle, Mangiatoia, Palme) are in the Guesthouse, which is part of the Masseria, inside the walls. A living room and a large collective kitchen, with air-conditioning, are available to the guests. They can obviously access all gardens, passages, patios, swimming-pool, orchard, vegetable garden, pine forest… All the rooms are spacious and furnished with care, with typical vaulted ceilings. All have an en suite bathroom and shower, heating, Internet, telephone, TV, mosquito nets at the doors and windows, an inner phone to contact other rooms and the residents’ houses, and a remote control to open the entrance gate.
Each room opens into a veranda furnished with paintings, sofas or benches, tables and chairs for reading, breakfast or conversation. Each has a name, for reasons we are going to see.
