We had a great stay with Rita and Johny at their guest house.
The room we had was more like an appartment with lots of space. The room and the rest of the buildings are being kept very authentic which gives a nice atmosphere.
We enjoyed breakfast and diner at the guesthouse and it felt as if we were visiting friends since both Rita and Johny joined us at the table every time. This gave a very friendly and relaxed feeling!
The food itself was amazing - from the handmade bread and marmelade in the morning until the awesome dishes in the evening. Rita is a genius in the kitchen and Johny knows how to pick the right wines.
Overall the friendliness, location, food and great great great hospitality makes this place one of the best places (if not the best!) I have visited over the years.
I surely hope we can plan a new stay next year.
And if you stay at Pieve a Pava - ask for Johnny Guitar. He's the rockstar of the village :)
