As other reviewers have said, Bruno, Carol and their family are exceptional hosts. This is a lovely getaway from the real world. You will never tire of the wonderful views and the calm, quiet and serene atmosphere. We left our window open each night and enjoyed cool fresh air and silence.
Breakfast was slow and leisurely. Each day there was a generous portion of fresh fruits, with surprises included like figs picked directly from their trees. Yogurt with muesli, muffins or croissants and the most delicious soft robiola cheese were all provided. Spread a little cheese on a fresh strawberry, close your eyes and take a bite – oh, heaven! If you wanted, Bruno would also make eggs so there was plenty of food available to satisfy any appetite.
The pool was a bit cold since it was October, but we enjoyed lounging in the sun near it and overlooking the surrounding area. There are many rosemary, lavender and other aromatic plants to also engage your sense of smell.
In the nearby town of Magione there is a small grocery store where we picked up some inexpensive, but very good quality wines. They also carry many other excellent foods such as meats, cheeses, olives, crusty bread and some wonderful chocolate cannolis. We were able to have a picnic dinner on the private patio off the green room. Carol and Bruno provided all the items we needed like dinner plates, wine glasses, corkscrew and paring knife.
Best of all was Carol’s warm smile and greeting of “good morning, how are you?” at breakfast. Such a pleasant way to start the day. We were genuinely sad to leave and hope we have the opportunity to return for another visit in the future.
