For my 11th visit from Canada to Italy I searched for and found what I'd describe as a simple yet profoundly authentic country get-away, at 'Italy Farm Stay'. From the moment of our arrival, travelling with my spouse, brother, sister-in-law and their two teenaged boys, we were all struck by the natural beauty of this little hill-side farm and the gentle warmth and hospitatlity of the family who own and run it, Antonello, his partner Linda and his parents, beloved Giuseppi and Maria. We were immediately engaged with the young university students staying there from North American and Europe, who provide farm help in exchange for room and board. They were all friendly and enthusiastic, while respecting our privacy implicitly. We were delighted with how easily we were able to find opportunities for a variety of activities for our nephews and ourselves. On their own initiative Aaron 18, helped make and cooked a pasta dinner with Maria and Sebastian 16, kept a journal everyday and picked up a lot of Italian. With no prompting they both joined us at 5am!!! for a very instructive lesson in cheese-making by a local shepherd and his wife. Antonello has established something very special here with his family. If you're looking for a relaxing, delicious and organically connected holiday, trust me, a visit to this wonderful little farm in the heart of Italy will delight you to your core.
