We have spent a few times around the south of Bologna, but decided to explore the North East region for a few days. region
There are many pieces that make up a special B&B, we think the most important, the hosts. Both Anna & Marco are lovely, extremely welcoming - nothing was too much trouble. My wife’s Italian is quite good, but between our 2 hosts they cover English, German & Japanese along with their native Italian.
Cà Bianca dell'Abbadessa itself has been completely rebuilt from the ground up with both passion and determination –built on love. The young sons as hospitable as their parents, the 5 cane complete the family. Breakfast was prefect to start the day, very Italian with cafe, homemade cakes, pastries and biscuits served in the spacious kitchen with fireplace.
We were lucky enough to make use of the apartment, both beautiful and comfy. Cleverly tucked away it is spacious enough for 4 guests, complete with an well designed kitchen & living area, not overly large but we were there to explore the city and region. Sadly we missed the full view to the city due to a few foggy days, but it would have to be spectacular on a clear evening.
A wonderful experience, would recommend it to those that enjoy down to earth extravagance. Oh, and I haven’t even mentioned Danny Boy, the Irish Cob – think a pretty Draught Horse...More
