Chiara and Paolo are the most generous hosts and lovely people! We feel like we have new Italian friends now. They speak excellent English and were happy to help us with our Italian language skills. They take great pleasure in talking with their guests, and sharing information about their region of Italy.
Every morning we ate breakfast on the outdoor patio, espresso and freshly-baked bread and meats and cheeses.They were happy to make restaurant recommendations and even made reservations for us. They produce several excellent wines and some evenings we were content just to cook a simple meal in our apartment kitchen and watch the sunset over the valley while drinking one if their own wines. Their village of Sinio is one of about 15 nearby villages, each with its own picturesque hilltop castle or tower, chapel, vineyards, and local wines and cheeses.There were excellent hiking paths in the area (but the area is very hilly, so bicycling wasn't much of an options). It's the county, so while people "walk" for sport, no one walks to get anywhere. You definitely need a car (and a good map & a gps!) to visit and get around. The drive from Milano or Torino is quite easy.
Our room was rustic in style (eg, no television) and very beautiful. The bed was very comfortable. Wifi was available; cellular service was spotty (but who needs to be fully in touch while on vacation anyway?) A great rate and a very low-priced region of Italy to travel in.
We can't wait to visit again!
