Set high up in the hills of Conegliano, this old-town apartment is convenient to local shopping and yet very quiet and private. It overlooks the new town. We were there for five days and found much to do locally but I would suggest that you need a car for sightseeing and wine tasting. Parking was easy and free but distant. The car can however be brought to the door to load and unload. By the way, Italy’s narrow cars are ideal for these roads.
Lulu, a sweet friendly little dog, and her owner, 7-year-old Leonardo, visited us daily and entertained us. Local shops are fine for the necessities but I recommend EATS food store and bistro; it’s quite a walk but doable unless you succumb to all the great things to buy (as we did!) and it has free customer parking underground.
Margherita was very helpful about what to do, such as ideas for restaurants, markets etc. And took the time to book a restaurant for us! The restaurant she recommended in Costa was wonderful and has an amazing view!
One word of caution: we found the window screens inadequate (particularly the bedroom ones) and ended up buying bug spray! But that was an easy fix.
All in all, we can’t wait to come back! Thank you very much for a great stay!
Tulio contacted us early to let us know he was at the apartment. He was very welcoming and showed us around the beautiful property and spoke perfect English. He explained what to do if the electricity went off, which it did on several occasions, but was easy to find the switch to turn it back on again. The apartment is better than the photos show and the high ceilings give a wonderful sense of space and light. The location is good for Venice and surrounding area if you have a car, we drove to Mestre and caught the train to Venice (cheap and 10 minutes across the bridge). The surrounding wine area is well worth a tour but the river is a lot more than a "few steps away" as stated in the description !!. The town has a good shop, bakery, butchers and a few bars although we mainly ate in Venice and the bigger towns. Tulio's father came and said hello and we had an interesting "chat" as he doesn't speak English and I don't speak Italian !!
The trip was thoroughly enjoyed by the whole family and I would highly recommend the apartment and the host.
