My husband & I visited our son who works in Germany. The three of us drove to Italy for a special trip and stayed at ElmAgos B&B in August for three days. Wish it could have been longer. The apartment, above the owner's home, is air-conditioned and has a separate entrance. We had plenty of space with two private bedrooms, a lounge with a TV that carried English CNN, a good size bathroom, and a kitchen with table & chairs. Breakfasts foods, coffee, juice, and milk are supplied. The apartment is stylish, clean, and well furnished, plus there is safe, free parking in front. The garden is lush and blooming. The owners are gracious, speak English, and represent the best of Friuli hospitality. I'm so happy I found this place on the internet!
Our son loves history so we visited Villa Manin in Codroipo where Napoleon stayed for several months, the town of Aquileia, a treasure trove of Roman ruins and early Christian mosaics, and we toured beautiful Miramare Castle along the coast and explored the city of Tireste. Each place was less than an hour's scenic drive from our base at Elm Agos B&B. The apartment has brochures & maps of points of interest in the area and the owners suggested places to eat. We enjoyed a friendly restaurant within an easy walk on our first night that served tasty pasta and wine as well as pizza (and you could buy a bottle of wine to take home with you!) We also had a terrific meal in lovely Udine. The third night we made our own dinner and simply relaxed together. If we'd had extra time, we would have explored more of the Adriatic coast and other historic towns of Friuli. It's a marvelous region and the ElmAgos B&B is the perfect place to stay!

Where We Are... apartment is in Friuli, in Udine, a region and a town where the food and wines are excellent, where those who happen to arrive, usually come again a second and third time... where many choose to take up their permanent residence. Because you simply feel fine here, and the people are unique. You can reach Venice in less than two hours and in the evening you can be back home again. But there are lots of other places not to be missed: Aquileia, Cividale, Palmanova, Lignano, Grado, Trieste, San Daniele, Gemona, Venzone..... and the Collio area famous for its wines inns and.... wonderful sceneries. ... more less
