Casa del Grivò Agriturismo

Faédis, Udine
Bed & Breakfast

Cherish the open spaces at Toni and Paola’s smallholding. Beds are comfy, organic dinners are delicious and the walking is wonderful


4 rooms


Rooms sleep 2 – 4


This is the house that Toni built – or, rather, lovingly revived from ruin. The smallholding sits in a hamlet on the edge of a plain; behind, wonderful, high-wooded hills extend to the Slovenian border, sometimes crossed to gather wild berries. Your lovely hosts have a wonderful family. Simplicity, rusticity and a ‘green’ approach are the keynotes here; so you’ll sample traditional wool-and-vegetable-fibre-filled mattresses. Beds are comfy and blanketed, some with wonderful quilts. You will adore all the open spaces, the animals and the little pool that’s been created by diverting a stream. Relax with a book on a bedroom balcony, or in a distant corner of the garden. Maps are laid out at breakfast, and there are heaps of books on the region; the walking is wonderful, there’s a castle to visit and a river to picnic by. Paola cooks fine dinners using old recipes and their own organic produce. There’s a lovely open fire for cooking, and you dine by candlelight, sometimes to the gentle accompaniment of country songs: Paola was once a singer.

Toni and Paola's home has been lovingly restored and is lovingly maintained, but without fuss or pernicketiness. Informality, warmth, the best pizzas and good, simple cooking are Paola's domain. Toni is a great conversationalist and always helpful in practical matters. The atmosphere is calm, welcoming and relaxed, and dinner time is like an informal party. The countryside is green and full of good walking with a wild pool in which to bathe. Cividale and Udine are a few miles away with lots to explore. You need a car, but take your bikes as well. I'm going back!

The neighbourhood

Local points of interest from Toni & Paola Costalunga

  • An hour’s drive from the house you can visit the whole of the Friuli-Venezia-Giulia region, from the rocky coast of Duino to the lagoon of Grado and Marano. From the foothills of Mniago do the Giulian Alps.
  • In Gemona del Friuli you can bear witness to the rare gold monstrance and the cathedral with one of the most beautiful facades in all of Italy.
  • In Venzone, a town still surrounded by medieval walls, you’ll be amazed at the incredible work that has been done, brick by brick, after the 1976 earthquake.
  • In Aquileia, a site of incredible beauty for its Roman mosaics, you can view the Basilica in the shade of the Cypresses, while sitting at the tables of the most popular café and chocolatier in Friuli.
