Host - Superb. Generous, kind, caring, intelligent, fun-loving, interesting, puts his guests first.
The little dog - the best little long-haired Jack Russell in the dog-world.
Breakfast - excellent, local produce, please send me some through the post!
Accommodation - superb, clean, characterful, restful, tranquil, historic, beautiful, ideally positioned for the area.
To do - lots. Padua (a must), the Villa dei Vescovi, Este, the gardens at Valsanzibio, the walk round Monte Rua (let Fabrizzio be your guide).
Restaurants - superb (Rocolo - worth it for the view alone, Liviana - the best pizzas in the world, Iseo - ideal for light meals and Italianness - are all to be recommended).
The very opposite of a soulless hotel.
