My wife and I travelled extensively whilst living in Europe but there is one place that still leaves us pining for more – Al Marnich! We stayed there over Christmas one year and it wasn’t just the fireplace that warmed our hearts. This place is truly magical! Perched high above sea level you are guaranteed of white Christmas. On one side lies Italy and on the other is Switzerland. The Italians call this holiday farm resort an ‘agriturismo’ and it’s uniquely situated as an Alpine Paradise. The dining room was a representation of a bygone era expertly balanced with stone and antique handcrafted furniture. We thought we had been transported back to the Middle Ages.
We were served a dazzling specialty at dinner time as an appetizer. It was a platter of different cheeses, freshly sliced pear with walnuts and a crucible of local honey. How rustic is that? White wine helped us set the tone for the rest of the evening and dinner was a baked delight superbly offered with home grown vegetables and fresh salad. The rooms must be seen to be believed and it was all worth writing home about! Can't wait to visit again. Salvino
