The
Experience

Over the hill to be blown away by the views, a lake surrounded by dense trees and olive groves; the setting of this mini borgo is magnificent. Charming English owners live in the main house and guests live to the side, in a wonderful old house, Casa Mandorlo, that sleeps nine, or Casa Olivetto an ancient, restored barn for two with spectacular views of Lake Montedoglio and the Appenines. At the back is Casa Susinetto, a ground-floor apartment for two, with a terrace overlooking the lake. Imagine real old cotto floors, mellow dressed stone, sand-blasted beams… a Tuscan dream. The big house has two storeys linked by wide stairs, a sitting room with books and sofas, a stylish kitchen with a farmhouse table, and antiques from far-flung travels. Bedrooms have simple blinds, good shutters, cushions made by friends, lovely mellow bathrooms and eclectic art – owners Gilly and son Dale want your holiday to be perfect. Buy their olive oil; treat yourself to a yoga, pilates or meditation course. Children can run around to their hearts’ content, the fruit tree’d gardens are safe, and the pool is positioned for the views.
