We stayed at La Casa di Campangna for four nights on april and were traveling as a pair (me, 18-year old girl and my mother). If planning to go to Bergamo, La Casa di Campagna is definitely the place to stay.
The owners of La Casa di Campagna, Laura and Miriam, are very hospitable and we were warmly welcomed. Both of them are wonderful persons! Miriam drove us from airport, it was only 10 minutes trip from airport to B & B. It is surprising how quickly the area changes to a beautiful countryside only after 400 meters from the big road. The area where La Casa di Campagna is situated is peaceful but not "dead", there are other people too.
Our room was one of the rooms of two, with own bathroom. I can't say a word of complaint, it was tidy and nicely decorated. Bed was good and neither light nor noise bothered us at night.
Every morning we got a great breakfast which included for example Italian ham, cheese, bread, fruit, yoghurt, coffee for your choice (cappucino etc.), cereals, some sweet pastries... Delicious! Every morning Laura were with us after having prepared breakfast and we could ask her if we had some questions about Bergamo or if we needed some tips. Laura also showed us her lovely animals, horses, dogs and cats!
La Casa di Campagna is situated for about 3 kilometers away from the old down, were most of the restaurants are. But it was no problem for us to walk from La Casa di Campagna to old down and back, sometimes twice a day, because we got to see beautiful Italian countryside views during walk. But it was lots of uphills (and downhills of course) so the right choice of shoes is crucial! Near La Casa di Campagna are also good possibilities for jogging but there are, indeed, lots of uphills.
We made a trip to Milano at one day and it was easy to first go by bus to railway station and then we find easily the right train to hop in.
I recommend this B & B for everyone. I don't think that staying in Bergamo could be more delightful!
