After an astoundingly beautiful drive you reach this handsome family house built by titans of the cement industry at the turn of the last century: now a pool sits on top of the old factory. Come for extraordinary food (both hosts are gourmet cooks), thoughtfulness, friendly chat and the loveliest rooms. Three are works of art and a touch of fun: a Murano mirror, an antique desk, pink faux-baroque wallpaper and stunning white linen curtains. Swish bathrooms shine with monogrammed towels and showers of Italian mosaic. Family suites at the top of the house are huge. Don’t miss it, you’ll need at least two nights.
