My friend and I had a lovely stay at La Capanna di Sovestro. The place is located on a beautiful, rural property in the country and is owned by a couple who speaks only Italian (but are very good at explaining with facial expressions and hand gestures). They were so warm and welcoming and helpful despite the language barrier. You must have Bruno take you out back to show you the animals and gardens. Best surprise discovery. It's a stay I will always remember!
Only negatives - wifi only works outside up by their house which is annoying when it's cold outside! Also - the hot water doesn't last a very long time and it's a little chilly at night in the winter. Regardless, great value for the price.
Advice - Keep an eye out for Hotel Sovestro when getting close, it's hard to find otherwise and GPS couldn't locate the house.
