The last class was taught here in the 1960s and the Carforas' sensitive renovation of Lusiana's old school resonates with good energy and character – music from the '40s plays gently in the background. A series of hairpin bends leads to the village some 800m up, south of the Asiago Plateau, between Marostica and Asiago and a great area for walking, biking and mushroom hunting! Superb views are of soaring mountain tops, the ancient bell tower and the valley below. Historians will know that Edward Brittain died here in 1915; Vera Brittain's ashes were scattered on his grave. A stove burns in the lofty Sala dell'Alfabeto where a feast of a breakfast is served at two long tables. When it's warm you can be out under lime trees, among pots of flowers in the former playground. Bedrooms are a pleasing mix of old and up-cycled: wooden and cement-tiled floors, quirky chests, desks, and wardrobes, colourful rugs, paintings and maps – and new: well-dressed iron bedsteads, double-glazing, designer lamps. Modern shower rooms are elegantly white-tiled with fun mirrors (in the top room there's a clawfoot tub). It's lovely here.

Guest feedback
"It's amazing what Valeria and her husband did in renovating the old school house into a beautiful, pampering place. We spent three days in the Geography Room, enjoying the comfortable bed and walk-in shower. Breakfast- in face, a brunch, in the garden among the roses, was heaven. The location is excellent and Valeria's tips on places to see and where to eat were invaluable."
