When arrived to the farm it was during a heavy down pour and the weather was a bit colder than we had expected -- but Mauro and Francesca hospitality lifted our spirits and warmed our souls immediately! We were greeted with a scrumptious plate of charcuterie and cheese along with a delicious carafe of red wine. The pasta couldn't have been more fresh and he distils his own Grappa that cannont be missed.
The landscape is beautiful and even though we did not get to make use of the salt-water pool, we did take advantage of the sauna….highly-recommended! Mauro also has two adorable dogs including a fluffy sheep dog that watched over us and slept right outside our door.
Mauro and Francesca were the best possible hosts from start to finish.
Our experience was absolutely wonderful! We stayed in the middle of winter and the place was really lovely. We took a drive to the Ferrari Museum one day and then went up to Venice the next.
It was the perfect base!
Our hosts were wonderful and Maruo had excellent english so we had a lot of fun talking together.
He has just opened his new restaurant so we celebrated my husbands birthday there and it was truly a great night.
If we are lucky enough to come back to Italy one day we will definitely return.
thanks so much!
Mauro's place... What can I say? We had a fantastic time! The place was clean, enough amenities for a family of 6 with children ranging from 14 to almost 2 and comfy cozy. We loved the structural beams in the bedrooms. His property..we had the best time hiking. The scenery was breathtaking and the air so clean, well worth the price of muddy shoes. The kids enjoyed the swing (you need to make more swings Mauro, 1 is not enough!), the large trampoline, the cats, dogs, cows, goats and horse. Their enjoyed climbing trees and just running around. The weather did not permit us to use the pool and i expected more complaints from the children about that but they were happy doing other things. My husband was content with coffee and his cigar outside and he absolutely enjoyed the challenge of the fireplace and keeping it going. Mauro's is quite accesible to the cities and you can use it as a base for day trips. But the experience of a small italian village, its people and lifestyle.. Thats what you get here. The people were lovely. Our italian is limited at best but we got around with smiles and gestures. The shop where we did our groceries is only open at certain times so be sure to check its timings. But the people there were great. It was a wonderful back to nature experience which we thoroughly enjoyed and would recommend to everyone. We hope to go back again one day..Mauro and Francesca are opening their own restaurant.. We wish them all the luck in the world and a great big Thank You!
Me and my friends had a few days in the house of Maurо.
The small town of San Benedetto Val di Sambro is very picturesque, the place is beautiful, the air is clean and the renovated stone house is in the authentic style of this region of Italy.
Mauro was very hospitable and gracious host, moreover good in the kitchen and prepare us delicious dinner with natural products from its own farm. Salads, goat cheese with honey, and the lasagna, which he cooked, were wonderful.
I recommend it to all who want to experience the true spirit of Italy
4 of my friends and I stayed at Mauro place for a week and we totally loved it! The location is great, right in the mounting, the place is clean and has everything you need for a very comfortable stay, Mauro is very nice and welcoming host. Totally recommend it to a families and nature lovers :)
This was the nicest place we stayed in Italy! Mauro was an excellent host, and makes amazing pizza (among other things) and was so helpful. We were easily able to visit Bologna and Florence by car, but also enjoyed hanging out by the pool and taking long hikes through the woods. The nearby villages are convenient and friendly. The first sunset actually brought tears to my eyes. We are already talking about coming back for a longer stay!
Wish there could be more stars for the rating!!
My friends and I had the best time staying at Mauro's old stone house :D
He was a wonderful host, the place was beyond perfect!
Worried to say more because then he's going to get soo busy and I won't have a place to stay in future :p
But really, stay here, you're missing out BIG time if you don't!!
This is the final rate, including any fees from the host and Airbnb.
