Excellent base for sightseeing and relaxing

  • 4 of 5
We spent a week at Il Bosco during the summer and found it to be well equipped and very central in the region which made day trips easy to lots of places. San Daniele, famous for its ham is a must as too is Venzone, a walled city to the north. There is so much to see in this beautiful alpine area. A place we will visit again.

A peaceful retreat...

  • 5 of 5
We take our holidays very seriously! We both travel a lot for our jobs, so the ""perfect" vacation is where we can sleep till late, (or wake up at the break of dawn, if we want to see the sun rise!), read, relax, away from the crowd, the traffic, the noise! Il Bosco is the ideal place to stay: quiet, secluded, and yet close to some beautiful spots, such as San Daniele or Spilimbergo, and Udine is just 35 KM away, If you like walking, there's plenty to explore in the surrounding mountains. The house itself is beautiful, well equipped and ideally facing south. The owner is a lovely lady from Leeds, who speaks perfect Italian, and can give you tips on what to do in the area (but you will find maps and brochures in the kitchen, to help you explore the area, and a selection of books, if you forgot to bring one!)
TV channels are not always working, and there is no WiFi access, but I can assure you that you will not miss it! I In short: do not miss the opportunity to stay here... it is a great place, and we can't wait to go back! Thank you June!

Owner's Response: Many thanks for the review. It was a pleasure to have you both stay at my place and it pleases me that others can have the benefit of what I think is a beautiful place too. I feel so lucky to have found it. I will try to get rid of the ghiri for next time, for the benefit of us all!!!

A truly wonderful and relaxing holiday

  • 5 of 5
We have spent another glorious fortnight at 'Il Bosco' and fully intend to return for another holiday soon! This is a wonderful, relaxing and beautiful place to stay, in one of the most unspoilt and pretty regions of Italy. We love it here and have even made plans to buy a property in FVG, in the not too distant future! 'Il Bosco' is lovely - set in a perfectly quiet spot off the long and winding road up to Monte Prat. All you hear, while sat on the lovely, well equipped terrace, are the sounds of nature (crickets, buzzards etc) and the occasional (very quiet) peal of church bells. Inside, 'Il Bosco' is very well equipped - lovely big kitchen and comfortable lounge with a fantastic wood burner to enjoy in the evenings! The bedrooms are spacious and there's plenty of wardrobe/drawer space too. The en -suite shower is very good (hot and powerful) and the beds really comfortable.

Places we visited again this year were Spilimbergo (lovely restaurants, and a famous mosaic town); Udine (great food festival in mid Sept), San Daniele (for the catherdral, bell-tower, and of course the local prosciutto! and Tolmezzo (almost at the border with Austria and a lovely town with great restaurants, shops and bars).

June (the owner) is lovely and will give you lots of tips on great places to visit, and is always pleasant and happy to help.

Unspoilt Beautiful Italy

  • 4 of 5
We had a fantastic week at Il Bosco this August, and truly relaxed in what is a fabulous unspoilt part of Italy. The house is in a wonderful location and is great for exploring the local area and wider.

Among our favourites were Venzone, Splimbergo and Palmanova. Small local towns with wonderful Italian atmospheres. Of the bigger places we enjoyed Udine, and Pedonone, and we were ambitious enough to head to Venice for the day where we will certainly be returning next year; a truly magical city.
The house itself was comfortable and well equipped,and by far our favourite bit about it was breakfast time on the terrace looking out into the green meadow with the only sounds being the nature and faint church bells in the distance.
We would fully recommend a stay at Il Bosco, and you will get a great taste of what is a wonderful unspoilt part of Italy.

Enjoy the cultural & culinary delights of FVG

Enjoy the cultural & culinary delights of FVG
  • 4 of 5
Just back from a very enjoyable week at Il Bosco. We found the "gite" was well-equipped and the website description accurate. The elevation
means that you are away from the heat of the valley - the road up to Monte Prat has hairpin bends but it is well-graded and maintained.

Places that we enjoyed visiting included:

1. The shop of San Daniele producer Dok (on the outskirts of the town) which also has a Restaurant which was packed
2. Cividale del Friuli which was setting up for the Palio di San Donato.
3. Udine - frescoes by Tiepolo and a lovely city just to stroll around.
4. Aquileia - major Roman port and stunning mosaics in the Basilica.

Our visit to Villa Manin was de-railed by an Iron Maiden concert!

Monte Prat is located 10 minutes from the village of Forgaria nel Friuli and near the hilltop town of San Daniele famous for its crude ham. Udine is the capital of the province whose once Venetian dominance is evident in the architecture. To the North is the walled village of Venzone totally razed to the ground by the earthquake of 1976 and Bordano where you can visit the House of the Butterflies, one of the largest in Europe. Visit the Val Resia whose people has origins dating back to the 7th century when some Polish nomads wandered into the valley and settled. They still retain ancient customs no longer practised in Poland. To the south of Forgaria lies Spilimbergo whose Mosaic School is one of the finest in Europe, guided tours are available, prebooking is necessary. Preone near Tolmezzo in the Carnia boasts the oldest dinosaur fossils found in the world, which can be found in the local museum. To the south the beaches of Sabbiadoro and Grado. Nearby Griffin Sanctuary.
