The main old Casa Padronale where the family still live dates back to the 1700s. You stay in one of two converted buildings, one nearer the house and the other down by the lake for those who want to be more private. You look after yourselves but Marco and Paola are always on hand and will pass by each morning to see if you want freshly baked cakes, homemade yogurt, eggs and fruit and vegetables.
Living areas are cheerful and comfortable with super views over the valley, kitchens are compact but well-equipped and bedrooms are beamed and simple. A very generous welcome pack includes pecorino cheese, salami, a bottle of wine, and their own olive oil. If you prefer, Paola will cook your evening meal which you can eat on the terrace and they are happy for you to help yourselves to veg from the garden.
Children will love petting the goats, sheep and horses, collecting eggs and the gentle dogs and cats lolling around.
