Authentic hospitality, great property, top location! Longlasting memories, as well for our kids!

  • 5 of 5

The charming landlord and his lovely wife give truly meaning to hospitality. We felt like visiting family (the good part :-). We stayed for over a week with a befriended household (each: two children age 6/8y) on the premise. Alternating we visited the local scenery and rested/played at the fantastic pool/garden.

We enjoyed every advice and tips (and recipies) received from Fransesco: the restaurants, the shops/markets, views, hikes, local specialties, food, meat, ... they all helped to build a beautifull memory in our minds and our hearts!

Highly recommended: yes!

Would/will we go back: yes!

Exactly what we wanted

  • 5 of 5

Our experience was wonderful. The property was better than expected. The pictures and description were accurate. Very conveniently located to the Autostrada for easy access to all of our various daily destinations such as Venice, Verona, Milan, Cremona, Bergamo. Very uniquely situated within town to provide plenty of shopping but secluded to give us a feel of being by ourselves in a rural country setting. Bedrooms were all very adequate for 4 couples. Plenty of air conditioning, hot water, places to lounge, dine and enjoy this beautiful setting. My only suggestion would be to provide an American style drip coffee maker and larger mugs for our coffee drinking style. Internet was sporadic due to the rural setting. We would absolutely stay here again and give Francesco a big thanks for creating a truly unique modernization of a historic property. All bedrooms are upstairs but a small modern elevator is provided. Exterior steps also provide access and this is what we use most of the time. Smaller children would require the elevator.

Gorgeous property and incredibly kind and accommodating hosts

  • 5 of 5

We had a friend reunion and Francesco's home and were so happy with everything. The property is even more beautiful than in the photos and Francesco and his wife could not have been more sweet. The pool was a dream and the perfect place for a hot day. Thank you so much for opening your home to us!!

Beautiful Farmhouse, Great Hosts!

  • 5 of 5

Francesco and Alda are the most welcoming hosts that can be!. They go out of their way to provide info,( great restaurants!) and to make your stay a pleasant and unique experience. The house and the grounds were in great condition. Everything was very clean , with flowers on the table and a bottle of wine in the fridge ! Beds were comfortable and hot water plentiful. We had really bad luck with the weather , and so the huge galleries were perfect!!! We had 3 children with us , and Francesco and Alda made sure they had all they needed , even their grandkids to play with!!! The pictures on the site are exact . The area surrounding the farm is beautiful and there is plenty of short trips to incredible towns close by. This is a great location, a beautiful and comfortable house , but most of all beautiful and hospitable hosts! Grazie Francesco and Alda. We all hope to return soon .

Beautiful house with amazing owners!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Francesco's house for a week with our daughter that was 20 months-old. The house is great, surrounded by a wonderful garden, and has all the comfort and amenities of an idyllic Italian farmhouse.

Francesco and his wife were amazing. Very welcoming and made us feel at home. Good people with huge hearts!

We still have some of the lavender and spices they gave us.

We are looking forward to come back soon! I will definitely recommend this house, anytime of the year.

Fantastic vacation in Italy

  • 5 of 5

All of those books and movies about vacationing in an Italian villa rely on a spectacular location. Francesco's farmhouse in Franciacorta really has that feel: a beautiful, well-renovated, lovely house - complete with pool, multiple decks, large wooden beams, plus a lovely kitchen. This was one of our most enjoyable, and definitely the most relaxing, vacations staying here.

The location is great - you do need a car (or perhaps be an avid cyclist) to get around - the lakes, Bellagio, Verona, the Dolomites are all a short drive away - even Venice was a possible day trip. Fantastic location to base yourself to enjoy northern Italy. The lovely owners will direct you to the local grocery stores, butcher (get the prosciutto!) and the little producti down the street, which is run by a couple of the most charming Italian gentlemen, who will make sure no cheese goes u tasted, and that you do not leave with sub-par wine.

While you share the house with the owners, the sound-proofing is strong, and you have complete privacy. The house has three levels, with the kitchen/dining/living areas on the bottom floor, and then bedrooms on the upper two (the 3rd story attic has one large bedroom). The kitchen has everything you need to cook reasonably elaborate meals for 8. There is air-conditioning, more than adequate for the heat wave we experienced, and the beds were comfortable. The upper floors are accessible by elevator. My husband uses a wheelchair, but can walk up a few steps, and the house worked very well for us. We had 4 couples sharing the place, and the bathrooms, bedrooms, and space worked well - never felt crowded.

The Franciocorta region is worthy of many superlatives - suffice it to say that you will have a view of vineyards from the pool. Our vacation was spectacular - and the house had a lot to do with that. Thank you for your warm hospitality!
