Albergo Colonne is a very special place. Set on Sacromonte at the base of the community of churches and chapels, it enjoys spectacular views and interesting walks and explorations, yet is just 20 minutes from the Centro and many other destinations. Host Silvio is a master chef and a most attentive innkeeper, who amazed us with wonderful meals, creatively prepared using delicious local ingredients and beautifully presented. He found time to pack a picnic lunch for us, to help with local transportation, and offer advice. Alert to our individual needs, he provided wine and a beautiful cheese platter, with salads and three conserves, for a party given by our friend at a neighboring bed-and-breakfast. We leave Albergo Colonne most reluctantly. We wish we could stay forever to be pampered by the pleasant staff, and certainly hope to return.
