Guestbook comments from the manager
First class accomodation. Loved the pets, trips to the farm to see the animals & 'free range' eggs ! Location ideal even for day trip to Milan & Bologna. Venice easily accessible as was Lake Garda & skiing on Monte Baldo. We thoroughly enjoyed our time here & definitely would like to return, especially around grape picking time. Many thanks for all the great tips on where to go for wine, cheese etc. & for your wonderful hospitality
