We came here on our honeymoon with the intention of relaxing and little else - which is exactly what we did. The house is big (almost too big for just the two of us) and on three floors - the kitchen is huge and the terrace outside it great for having breakfast/lunch/dinner on while looking out at the mountains.

A hidden gem that is tucked away in the most spectacular location. Stunning and breathtaking views of the surrounding mountains. The farmhouse is beautifully renovated and the pieces of art, sculpture and photographs add to the overall atmosphere. Kevan and Maureen are amazing hosts and went out of their way to welcome us. I cannot recommend La Balconetta more highly.

Kevan was a great host and drew us a map the first morning after we arrived so we could walk through the forest and down to the town. Took us about 40 minutes but we were stopping and taking photos...
