Bed and Breakfast

In 1992 I started to work on my life long dream, restructuring the part of the house that for many years was a farmer’s home. I wanted to create simple, intimate and comfortable environments for my guests. Warm colors, antique furniture, natural fabrics, the curtains from my great-grandmother Nina’s dowry, family pictures, small objects telling our story, old embroideries, yet with a modern touch to be able to provide the needed comfort. That’s the way the guest rooms came about. 

In December 1999 the second part of my dream took off. I had to give the house a feeling of greater intimacy and more independence….. a true home that my guests could live as their own. I had to create some ”romantic nests”. I tried to imagine the needs of the lovers, of the families, of the young sportsmen. I set an ambitious goal for myself: to rekindle the flame often choked by habit and stress. With my great joy and satisfaction, the stable, the hay-loft, the woodshed and the wheat barn became welcoming small Apartments.

”We came as guests and we left as friends…” has been one of the most rewarding comments of my guests.

I enjoy giving as much as receiving, I love life with everything it brings along, I enjoy myself this way and I grow along with my guests that I consider friends to pamper. This is the “heritage” that Riccardo, the youngest son, is earning with great enthusiasm and awareness.
