Villa in the vineyards of Lombardy in the North of Italy. Luxury holiday apartment with complete kitchen, private terrace that offers a panoramic sight of the valley. You rent one of two double rooms and share bathroom and other amenities and facilities. Spacious living room and private swimming pool. We are dog friendly. Cookery classes, wine tasting, culinary arrangements are possible. Hiking and cycling routes straight from the Villa, descriptions available.
The Oltrepo Pavese is the largest wine producing area of Lombardy in the North of Italy, but is also virtually unknown abroad. It is also called the Tuscany south of Milan! This is a pity as the landscape is beautiful, the people are kind, the food is authentic and there are lots of possibilities for walking, hiking, cycling and sight-seeing. The smooth hills are covered with vineyards, castles and medieval villages and this landscape reminds one of Tuscany. Pace of life is slow, food is traditional and wine can be tasted anywhere, in one of the over 100 independent cantines.
No specific rules, just want you to have a great stay!
No smoking inside.
We have a sad story, because we REALLY wanted to stay at the Padroni B & B, but our rental car broke down 45 minutes from their place, and we couldn't even make it. However, I would HIGHLY recommend Nico's place to ANYONE because he was very accommodating and very friendly. Next time I am near Milan, I will absolutely stay here!
We, Nico and Stef, are the two "padroni" or the owners of the villa and of our young dog Thomas who lives with us since 2009.
In May 2008 we have moved to this beautiful location in Italy, not only to enjoy "la dolce vita" ourselves, but also because we want to make others familiar with this undiscovered area.
