“Our second visit to Italy!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 18, 2013

My husband and I have been to Italy twice, once in late August, early September (very warm to hot weather) and Fall/Winter season (beautiful, colorful, cool weather and some snow too, so pretty!) both of which were amazing and offer such different experiences. Both times we had the opportunity to stay with Chris and Dani at their wonderful B & B as we were traveling through and exploring all things Italian! Chris and Dani are the ultimate hosts. The food is homemade, healthy and SO tasty! They often get their cheeses from neighboring farms, and fresh bread from the local market. Dani's mother loves to cook and bake, and was always bringing delectable things over for us to eat. Having traveled through regions where not many spoke english, it was so nice to come "home" to Chris and Dani, who speak English, Italian and other languages. We would tell them our funny stories and adventures, this was due to our bare minimum use of the Italian language of course, and they would laugh and give us pointers for our next outing to make things easier for us on our next adventure out. There are several rooms to stay in. Each has a different view, with balcony access, and are very comfortable with updated bathrooms. There is a downstairs suite with a kitchen, living area, and beautiful doors and windows that open to a large covered patio and view of their garden, grape vines and orchard. I will try to post some pics soon, we have thousands to go through. Also the train station is very close by.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2011

The room was on ground level and only 3 meters from our car. Our room was very spacious with fridge, kitchen, and satellite TV with also English channels and a porch… Great view! Chris and Daniela are very fine hosts.
The breakfast was delicious… and was served at the porch!
Everything was very clean.
Train station is only a few minutes away, ideal stay when Bologna is fully booked. Only 30 minutes by train. We got very good information from Daniela and Chris.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2010

Chris and Daniela were very gracious hosts. Their breakfast was delicious. There were even home-made cookies from Daniela's mother and jam made from fruit on their property. Chris is American and Daniela is Italian, so it was wonderful getting to chat with them both to talk about Italy, etc... Our room was very clean, spacious and a comfortable night's sleep. Our bathroom was very clean and updated...nice shower. Chris and Daniela have been restoring this B&B over the past few years (doing a lot of the work themselves) and they've recently opened the B&B.
