We are a Dutch-Italian couple. Cornelis is a professional sculptor and I am a communication consultant.
Our passion for nature and old stone houses took us in 2006 to Porcaticcio di Sopra, a big mansion abandoned for many years. We fell in love with the place right away and we decided to start our project of restoration. Giving new life to Porcaticcio is a great satisfaction and now we like to share our paradise with our guests.
Gabriela purchased this chateau / country house in 2006
"The beautiful surroundings and the kindness of the owners made this stay very relaxed and warm. With some lively towns not too far away from the rented house, we could combine in this trip pleasant cultural events with laidback rural life."
"The house is a beautiful bijoux cottage with all modern comforts. The driveway is steep but perfectly manageable. Cornelis and Gabriella are delightful and very helpful and knowledgeable. The area has a lot to offer but for higher climbing you need to go towards San Bernadino in Alpe. Beware of the restaurant La Betulla although it is VERY good it is not as close to the road as you think and there is a 15 minute drive up some steep road to eventually get there. A wonderful house for a relaxing holiday"
"Impeccably clean.Very peaceful(in the country). Delightful surroundings - woodland, farmland and vineyards in a mountainous setting. Charming views. Facilities in the property are of the highest standard. Access was our only problem (apart from some unseasonal weather)but we understand that the drive up from the road has been given a good surface since we left."
Nous avons adoré notre séjour dans le joli gite de Gabriela et Cornélius. Calme, sérénité et fraicheur (très appréciable au mois d'août !). Le gite est charmant, idéal pour un couple. A notre disposition, une petite terrasse privative où nous pouvions prendre nos repas et même un joli jardin sur le côté. Qui plus est, le jardin et l'intérieur du gite sont agrémentés de tableaux et des belles sculptures de Cornélius. C'est un environnement idéal pour ceux qui sont sensibles à l'art. Gabriela est une personne vraiment très accueillante. Elle nous a donné de bons conseils et s'est toujours montré très disponible. Si ce n'était pas si loin, on y retournerait volontiers !
