Wind your way up the mountains to a remote farming hamlet grazed by sheep, and forests stuffed with truffles. Pettino has been in Francesca’s family since 1486.
Enjoying food is what this place is about: catching, picking, hunting and eating it. Game like you’ve never tasted, olive oil, pecorino, porcini, and, at breakfast, sweet fresh bakes. After hunting truffles with Mac and a dozen hounds, you watch Francesca making pasta as the cousins slice prosciutto and grill bruschetta. Whatever you do here, you feel included. It’s a family paradise, and under 16s are free.
The suites (just two) combine rusticity with luxury and masses of space. Revel in double showers, private jacuzzis, and a complimentary stock of local wines. There are daybeds for kids, mezzanines for parents, sunsets for terraces, and logs for fires.
