The Experience

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.

Efficient, helpful and hospitable hosts, and inspired and witty interiors with a delightful feel for the past of this old primary school building. An outstanding breakfast, too. A good position to explore this fascinating corner of the Veneto – Asiago, Bassano del Grappa and Asolo - expect many twisting but pretty roads. The Sawday's description captures the place well.
