Living the Italian dream in Casa in Borgo
It is difficult to describe the peaceful experience of staying in this authentically renovated late 1600's mansion. The gentle river that runs through town is out the backdoor where you can sit with your morning tea or afternoon wine under the pergola. The oneway cobblestone road outside the front door is used only by neighboring homes. The tiny town of Polcenigo is rich in opportunities to participate in the daily life of a small northern Italian village - the weekly market is steps away, the wonderful gelateria within a 3 minute walk, a tiny trattoria with good typical food and a patio overlooking the river is steps away, pizzeria and patisserie are within a five-minute stroll. Only local traffic goes through Polcenigo as it is away from main thoroughfares but so close to many exciting areas to visit - wineries, Aviano with the NATO base, mountain lakes and a ski area, lovely villages, Roman ruins, the Adriatic Sea and so much more.
The home itself is a slice of history. Large rooms with beautiful floors and beams, the Murano chandelier that lights up the living room, large stone working fireplaces in the living and dining room, an enticing third floor suite with it's own modern bathroom, art throughout the home which reflects its origins.
The experience one has in this elegant mansion is enhanced by the kind personal attention given by Mauro whose family owns this mansion. The evening of our arrival Mauro greeted us with a home filled with lit candles, a tour around the town to help us quickly locate the supermarket and recommended restaurants (the recommendations were fantastic!) and a basket of foods and wine needed to prepare our own arrival dinner in case we were too tired from our travels to go out to eat or take a trip to the store. We did just that and it was relaxing and delicious. Mauro continued his contact with us throughout our stay sharing ideas of places we might want to see and experience in this area of Italy. We felt genuinely cared for by him. In fact, after meeting our son and his family who had recently moved to Aviano but had yet to find permanent housing, Mauro advised them on possible solutions to their housing concerns and offered his assistance in any future concerns that might arise while they are in Aviano. We felt much more confident leaving Italy knowing that he was there for them in case of an emergency or just to check in with someone who cared.
Northern Italy at its best
We just had a wonderful two weeks stay at Casa in Borgo, words aren’t enough to describe this beautifully restored old mansion, it didn’t take long for us to feel comfortable, relaxed and at home.
Casa in Borgo is a beautiful place on its own right but what really made it an outstanding and unforgettable stay was the beautiful family that owns this magnificent mansion; Mauro, Michela and their daughter Gaia. Everyday Mauro went out of his way to make us feel at home and to make sure we truly experienced the Italian way of life, starting with the comfort and amenities that Casa in Borgo offers, walking around the amazing medieval village of Polcenigo enjoying an expresso every morning and visiting all the beautiful surrounding villages, lakes, mountains and cities all reachable within easy 0.5 - 2 hour drive such as Vittorio Veneto, Lake Barcis, Treviso, Padua, Aquileia, Grado, Trieste, Venice, Verona, Cortina, etc., most recommendations made by Mauro.
Mauro graciously shared on many occasions the pride he feels for Casa in Borgo as this represents an important part of his family heritage. I have to honestly say that during these two weeks Mauro and I developed a friendship that I hope will endure going forward into the future.
We now consider Mauro, Michela and Gaia our new friends whom we intend to stay in touch with and for sure will meet again in Italy and hopefully also in other parts of the world.
As mentioned repeatedly by the other guests, we also highly recommend Casa in Borgo for anyone who would like to feel at home away from home and is interested in sampling Northern Italy’s way of life.

Beautiful property right in the heart of Polcenigo
Beautiful property right in the heart of Polcenigo. Very well appointed . Just like staying in someones home. Open fireplace and cosy rooms. Mauro & his wife made sure we had everything we required . Excellent !!
What a Gem!!
Wow! What a great place, we were welcomed by Mauro with open arms.
My husband and I got Married on May 27th this year. Because my husband is Italian we had a celebration of the marriage in Polcenigo.
We stayed at Casa in Borgo on September 24 and 25. It was a real home away from home. Beautiful surroundings, the home was clean, cosy and very spacious. We would recommend Casa in Borgo to anybody.
An exceptional villa, perfect accommodation
We are two retired couples, from opposite sides of the world, who enjoy meeting up each year to explore a corner of Europe. Casa in Borgo in Polcenigo fulfilled our every desire: the perfect home in a beautiful part of the world.
The villa is exceptional: beautifully furnished and very well appointed. Mauro encourages his guests to use all the lovely crockery, glassware, candles etc. Despite extremely warm weather we did not need to use the air conditioner. The rooms remained cool and airy. Three weeks of electricity for 4 – without using a/c or clothes dryer – was a mere 35 euro. A basket of maps and travel guides was extremely helpful, and Mauro himself is full of excellent ideas to help you enjoy the perfect holiday for you. He introduced us to wonderful restaurants and advised us on travel routes, and can arrange golf, fishing, cycling, horse riding etc.
We were able to visit Trieste, Padova, Venice, Lake Garda (two and a half hours’ drive, to catch up with friends) and less well known gems such as Spilimbergo (mosaic school), Cividale, Belluno, Valvasone, Aquileia. A visit to breathtaking Lake Barcis is a must – emerald water surrounded by glorious mountains.
There are many beautiful walks in the area, as well the stunning mountain scenery of the Dolomites visible on every drive.
Polcenigo is a lovely town, with bars, pizzerias, supermarket and the world’s best gelataria. Our evening ritual was to treat ourselves to a new flavour.
We had the good fortune to arrive in Polcenigo just prior to the weekend of the 400 year old Basket Festival. Saturday was fairly quiet, but this gave us a chance to chat to the vendors of cheese, meat, condiments about the local products and how they were made. Sunday was amazing, with thousands of people enjoying the market stalls, demonstrations of traditional basketry, all manner of crafts, music, food etc.
Mauro is very knowledgeable about, and proud of, the Friuli – Giulia – Venezia Region and wants his guests to enjoy and appreciate the Italian love of fine food and good company. He and Miki do everything to make your stay perfect. Our holiday was just sublime.
Lovely home, wonderful hosts, quaint town all made a memorable trip
From the emails prior to the trip to our fond farewells, this was a winner of a location and stay. I honestly don't know where to begin.
Hosts: Mauro and Michaela were so accommodating and eager and proud of their lovely property, they truly enhanced our stay and made it an experience to treasure. Mauro is very prompt in responding to emails and phone calls to make sure everything was going well. Almost every day he checked in and gave us suggestions on where to go, eat or how to best travel. Note to the wise: the days we followed his suggestions were our most memorable.
Home: better than expected, the pictures don't do it justice. Clean, well stocked, and steps to the coffee shop, gelatateria, and an excellent pizza restaurant. The home backs to a river and they have just completed a lovely patio. We enjoyed this patio both mornings for coffee anD evenings for gelato. Anything you could ask for was in the kitchen and dining room cupboards. The living room was enormous and included a piano and TV. Master bedroom was very large, included a bath and dressing room. Every room had its own air conditioner all of which were very effective n cooling down the rooms. The 300 year old building is so solid that we rarely needed the AC. Just closing everything up every morning before leaving was effective and saved on our electric bill. Note: our electric bill for 4 people for a week was 32 euros. We did not consider this bad at all and it included the AC/washer/dryer and charging of 4 iPhones and iPads every day so we did not skimp on usage, but yours may vary. Be sure and close everything down. We also closed the shutters in the master and kitchen to block the sun during the day.
Location: this is what topped off our stay. We were in a small town about an hour down the autostrade from the Venice airport. Aviano airbase is about 15 minutes and the location is great for visiting family and friends stationed there, which we did on 2 evenings.
Google maps provided great directions our entire trip. When there you are within minutes of the foot hills of the Dolomites. We spent an entire day there and absolutely loved the mountains - they were so impressive and we are from Colorado so our expectations were quite high. We drove 2 hours aNd were in Cortina, the famous ski resort. Also within 2 hours were Verona and Trieste. I. The best part though were the surrounding wine vineyards and small towns where we enjoyed the culture and markets.
Polcenigo is an ancient town, placed among the most beautiful villages in Italy, you can breathe the air of history: a few steps away is the Park of San Floriano, a 50-minute train arrives in the beautiful and unique city of Venice . Golf, skiing, horseback riding, tennis, beaches, folklore, wineries are located a short distance from the house in the village, where you can stay in full relax, between things and atmospheres of taste that make this home a corner of paradise.
