I stayed here for three nights. The location was excellent and I was recommended an excellent local restaurant by the owner. The beds are comfortable and the rooms are clean. The breakfast arrangement is highly efficient and the coffee excellent.

Beautiful farnhouse and parklike gardens. Very special with tastefully decorated rooms. Was a highlight for us at the start of our holidays. We were travelling as a family with 4 children. Would come again!

We really enjoyed the stay at this B&B, especially we appreciated a lot their warm hospitality. The room was very clean, each room is furnished elegantly. Children loved to play in garden where you can find full of herbs and flowers in spring time.

I travelled to in Podere Merlo B&B last weekend, together with three friends. We stayed in a very cosy flat at the first floor. Rooms were nice, silent and warm. The whole location looked lovely and we would have enjoyed staying outside, if the weather wasn't rainy. Podere Merlo is close to the highway, so I would highly recommend it... More

I had been staying nearby for a seminar and wanted a few days relaxing at the end. What better place than Podere Merlo for chilling out. The farmhouse was beautiful with such attention to detail. The owner could not have been more helpful, from ordering taxis, making dinner reservations and phoning lost property when I left a bag on a... More

It was late May, 2012 and we were two couples touring Europe by car and staying at B&Bs. We wanted clean accommodations, the feeling of being safe with free private parking and Wi-Fi. The Podere Merlo B&B had that and a lot more. It was a little difficult to find and located in what appeared to be an industrial area.... More

This B&B was just amazing and totally captured our heart. It's an old farm house that has been renovated so mindfully with an old & rustic charm intact that just takes your breath away. Yet all the modern comfort was uncompromised. We loved our room, which featured exposed wood beams and a lovely view of the farm, its beautiful vintage... More

I stayed here because of all the good comments, however I can't agree with any of them. I was in Italy for a month and this was the worst. The owner was only interested in getting paid the minute we got there. We did not see him for the rest of the 3 days we were there, not even a... More

This place is gorgeous, the owner Francesco was so friendly and welcoming (and so were his cats!), I would definitely stay here again.
