Oregano and butterfly

How vainly men themselves amaze 

To win the palm, the oak, or bays, 

And their uncessant labours see 

Crown’d from some single herb or tree, 

Whose short and narrow verged shade 

Does prudently their toils upbraid; 

While all flow’rs and all trees do close 

To weave the garlands of repose.

Excerpt from The Garden by Andrew Marvell


From the garden to the restaurant

Paul has a green thumb and a big heart for his plants and all the residents of Villa Lena. His tomatoes, zucchinis, melanzane, carrots, strawberries and peppers are enjoyed freshly harvested right out of the garden at the Villa Lena restaurant.

All his vegetables stem from his own seeding, which makes it a truly local 0 km production.

Ask Paul for a tour through his enchanted vegetable garden to hear more about the different types of basil and the palate of tomato shades he grows without the use of any pesticides.
