About This Listing
A room for two with a king size bed in a beautiful old villa dating back to 1800. The villa is situated in the country, surrounded by woods and meadows. The town of BRA is two km away and you can reach it either by bus or walking. The room has two windows, a private bathroom with a shower, armchairs and a wardrobe. It has a big balcony overseeing San Michele. It is possible to use the kitchen and the washing machine. On the same floor another small room with a deck bed is also available as additional guests using the same bathroom. We also can provide a small bed for a baby to place in the large room.
The rooms and the bathroom are recently restored. The rooms cannot be rented separately.
We can arrange a transfer from the station/airport to the house and vice versa.
My rules are no rules. Just feel at home and do not do what you wouldn't do at home.
If you are driving a car pay attention to the street to the house because it is bumpy and drive slowly to avoid dust and the dogs running around.
Fantastic place-what a beautiful home and comfortable lodging.
This place is just as uniquely gorgeous as the pictures suggest, Giovanna (and her family) were perfect hosts who absolutely went above and beyond with helpful suggestions, drives & good cheer. My family of 5 stayed with her (first time in Italy) and were thrilled with the accommodations - lots of space & privacy. Definitely worth staying for the view every morning alone. Great idea to have a car for zipping to and from Bra for meals & cheese tasting, or wineries throughout the region.
this is an extraordinary place. the address is '161a etc etc' - when you get to 161b you think 'can 161a be that beautiful palazzo on the top of that hill?'....and the answer is 'yes!'. giovanna says it is 'creaky', because they are restoring the property, but that adds to its charm. giovanna was entirely charming - what i wanted to do was sleep, and then head back to the cheesy madness in Bra, which prompted my visit. i am sure this place would offer a great base for anyone looking to engage more fully with the area.
Giovanna was a terrific host, she was incredibly helpful and informative. She made us feel right at home. And the house is not to be believed, it's worth a trip to Bra just to stay there.
