“What a fantastic view”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2011

We spent 4 nights at this B&B during our recent trip to Italy. Paolo welcomed us with drinks and made us very welcome. Breakfast was self service with juice, ham, cheese, cereal, yogurt, bread, jam etc and tea or coffee was always brought with a smile and a greeting.

The rooms are in a separate block to the family home where breakfast was served. I think that this has been built quite recently. Our room (no 10) was on the back of the building , on the second floor. It was a large, bright room painted fuscia & turquoise with some silver furniture. My husband described it as funky, I loved it. We didn't view any of the other rooms but 1,2 & 3 each had a balcony but probably wouldn't be as big as 10. There is also an apartment and a honeymoon suite available.

The villa is at the top of a hill over looking the lake and surrounding hills and the views really are amazing. The light changes during the day and sunset in particular was spectacular. Sunrise probably is as well, but I slept so well that I never got anywhere near seeing it. The swimming pool is great after a day out and about and there are plenty of chairs and loungers available in sunshine or shade as required.

You can't walk to a restaurant or bar from the villa, a car is necessary but it is worth the drive up the hill to stay in such a lovely place. We saw wild boar and foxes when driving back at night. There were trails for bikes and walking in the surrounding park.
