  • 4 of 5

Overall:

It was very pleasant. Getting there late at night and having a bottle of wine and homemade lasagna, olive oil and bread, was a very welcomed surprise.

Enjoyed Most:

It was clean and the kitchen was very cozy. The master bedroom bath was very nice, but the other baths were rather small.

Enjoyed Least:

The couple we were with did not like the fact that the sofas had covers on them, which they did not have in the pictures. Also, it had a beautiful atmosphere, but could have used nicer lamps and end tables. The driveway was just 300 meters, but was a challenge. Would be really difficult with a small car. The outside table was placed against the wall, which made it uninviting for eating outside together.

Tips or Restaurants:

Make sure you are not driving a mini car or you will never make it down the driveway. The best dining experience we had was at the Winery called Banfi. We went there for lunch before the tour of the winery and they had a prix fix menu with a different wine for each course. Food was excellent and so was the wine. And you could refill your glasses at each course. Would definitely go back.

Very peaceful and quiet and close to many major wine areas....

  • 4 of 5

Overall:

Very peaceful and quiet and close to many major wine areas.

Enjoyed Most:

The peace and quiet.

Enjoyed Least:

The flies and some of the art. We expected a country villa with traditional surroundings as depicted on the web site. What we got was a farmhouse, very nice, but filled with edgy, modern, non-farmhouse art.

Surrounding Area:

The people we met were amazing and very friendly and helpful.

Nearby Events or Locales:

Castlenuevo del Abate. Yes but we did not walk.

Tips or Restaurants:

Schedule a cooking class with Bruna and her translator Anna Lisa. They are an amazing team. The cooking class was the highlight of the visit.
