Each visit at the Bella La Vita Inn is a fulfilling experience. The weekend of August 4, 2012 wasn’t any different. The house was full and the other guests were great. Sunday morning after a delicious breakfast prepared by Lisal and Matt, we sat around the table sharing life stories. The place makes you feel at ease because Lisal and... More

Bella La Vita is a beautiful, quiet, peaceful retreat located in the Blue Ridge of Floyd, VA. Matt and Lisal are terrific hosts--warm, welcoming, helpful, and clearly at ease with running a B&B. After exploring Floyd, spend time just enjoying the gardens at Bella LaVita. The room was large, comfortable, and looked out on the gardens, with a swing and... More

It was lovely sharing some great conversation time with you. I may become a "Road Scholar!" So glad to hear you were able to get some great shots at Mabry Mill. We hope you come back to Floyd and stay with us here at Bella. Thank you so much for taking the time to rate us, it means so much... More

Matt and Lisal have a wonderful little gem on a small country road in Floyd, VA. Their home is a Tuscan inspired beauty and they are very friendly hosts who will offer you an AMAZING breakfast each morning. We only stayed one night... but I would go back just to have Lisal make a meal for me again!!!

Unfortunately, we only spent one night at Bella La Vita Inn, but it was the best B&B experience we have had. Lisal and Matt should write the book on how to be a B&B host! Down to the smallest detail, everything was perfect. Matt and Lisal are warm, the grounds are beautiful, the house is unique, the beds and rooms... More

I trusted the reviews on Trip Advisor and we spent 2 nights in April. The upstairs rooms had a balcony and the Inn was all you could ask for. Lisal and Matthew were the best of hosts and the breakfasts were to die for! We had so much fun at the Country Store enjoying the Gospel and Bluegrass music, it... More

My husband and I spent the Memorial Day weekend at the wonderfully charming Bella La Vita Inn. The proprietors, Lisal and Matthew, are warm, gracious, and incredibly accommodating. Their suggestions for local food, wine, and fun were spot on. We were also impressed at their helpfulness in giving directions and checking on closing or serving times of local establishments for...

Hi, I was at Bella La Vita about a week ago and loved it. The beautiful and comfortable accomodations, the lovely setting in the mountains, the rejuvenating massage and the wonderful tasty breakfasts were only a few of the many perks there. I felt right at home and Matt and Lisal go out of their way to make you happy... More

We celebrated our 12th anniversary at the Bella La Vita Inn. The Inn reminded my wife and I of our visit to Tuscany 11 years ago. Lisal recommended visiting the country store in Floyd on Friday night, which was a unique experience to see the live bluegrass musicians gathering on the roadside. The breakfast was delectable! Thank you so much... More

We found this gem of a B&B thru a winery's web site- and am I ever thankful we did. It was terribly rainy that day (spring football at Va Tech for those in the know) and Lisal's directions on the web site, plus her recommendations for dinner places in floyd were spot on. Our stay was saturday, April 21st, 2012.... More
