“Lovely house and garden”
Reviewed August 28, 2017 for a stay in August 2017

We stayed here for a week and were delighted with everything.

We received such a warm welcome from the family and enjoyed seeing Fernando during the week. Thanks Fernando for the eggs and wine!

The house is lovely and spacious and the garden is excellent with great facilities and lots of space. Our kids loved the zipwire, pool, table tennis, table football and football goals in the garden!

The house is not in a very tourist area but there are lots of good places to visit nearby.

Thanks again Luca and family

“Country refuge”
Reviewed October 16, 2016 for a stay in October 2016

A group of 6 of us (three couples) recently spent a week at La Davana and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We were welcomed by the owner Luca and his father- and mother-in law (Fernando and Graziella) who had us quickly settled in the property. The house was just as we expected from the listing and proved a very comfortable and well located venue. We were particularly impressed by the friendliness and support from Fernando and Gratsiella despite the fact that we some no italian and they no english.
Would highly recommend this property for groups or families.

“Absolutely Stunning !”
Reviewed September 14, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Holiday began with a late evening, very warm welcome from Luca and Monia who are lovely, lovely people. The house is huge and beautifully furnished with all you need in the way of comfort and domestic needs. The garden is also huge with a large pool, flying fox, ping pong table and fooosball table to keep younger family members busy ! A large table resides below a lovely pergola and is a great place to cook on the bbq and eat and drink the evening in. If you are lucky you may meet Monia`s father Fernando, who is a simply lovely and charming man. He and my elder son(21) got on famously in-spite of no common language ! We had a simply fantastic week at La Davana, and would not hesitate to recommend to anyone. Book it now and go ! You will not be disappointed.

“fantastic house, inside and out!”
Reviewed July 26, 2016 for a stay in July 2016

we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this beautiful property. we travelled with 4 kids ( 14, 14, 12 and 6). it was gorgeous instead, with very spacious rooms and very well kitted out - everything you needed (and more). the photos do not do this house justice. outside was fantastic and the kids loved it - the older kids enjoyed the table tennis in the shade and the younger ones loved the zip wire. and of course the pool
we have stayed in many houses/villas over the years as that is the kind of holiday we always enjoy and this is one of the best houses we have stayed in.
Local towns very attractive too. plenty of supermarkets very nearby.
the hosts were very welcoming, and good communication throughout the whole process. Thanks again!

“Lovely house, great for kids”
Reviewed June 5, 2016 for a stay in May 2016

Had a great week here with a family of 5. Lovely spacious house; 4 bedrooms, 3 double and 1 twin; 2 bathrooms, 1 on ground floor with shower and 1 upstairs with bath. Great outdoor space, especially for kids; barbeque, football area, table tennis, bar football and a zip wire across garden. 5 minutes drive from 2 local towns, Fidenza and Salsomaggiore where there are lots of bars, restaurants and supermarkets. 2 restaurants even closer though not walking distance. Owner and family very helpful. Would recommend for a family or large group.
