Chiara has the top floor of the house and you have the run of the rest. Guests can lounge for as long as they like with a cup of tea or glass of wine in the sunny sitting room or the ‘greenhouse’ room with big windows looking onto the garden. Pots overflow with geraniums, an apricot tree produces fruit for your breakfast jam and there’s a side portico for eating out.
Breakfast is organic and almost completely local. There’s a small dairy in the hamlet – walk over to see how traditional ricotta is made, or taste creamy local Latteria. Spend the day exploring this most beautiful and less travelled area – walk into Trichiana for a good pizzeria and plenty of shops or join several walking trails, one to the river Piave.
Chiara recommends Al Borgo for supper. Return to south facing bedrooms, one with a private terrace, and bathrooms with spacious rain showers. Sleep peacefully, it’s quiet here.
