More than a place to stay

  • 5 of 5

This was a beautiful place to stay. It was far more than just someplace to sleep - it was an experience. Our hosts were wonderful and made us feel right at home. We asked for a pizza night in their wood fired stove and it was amazing! Pizza in the US never tasted so good and our hosts made the evening fun. We used the Villa as our home base while touring the region and found it perfectly located. It was a hike but we walked to the castle and the beautiful village of Poppi. There is a grocery store about a five minute walk from the villa that had everything we needed. All in all our stay was a wonderful experience and hopefully one day we will come back. Thank you Alessandro and Katia for being such excellent hosts!!

Just amazing

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at La Dolce Vista for one week with 8 adults and 6 children and we had a great time! Everything is well maintained and clean. Everything still looks identical to the photos.

The communication in English with Alessio was good only his parents don't speak English so we had to use "the good old sign language" and some help from Google Translate ;-)

We could park our 4 cars on the premises behind a gate so they were safe and also under a roof protected from direct sunlight. We had a remote control and tags to operate the gate so we could go in and out whenever we liked.

We used the BBQ almost every day and with the help from the parents we made our own pizzas in the stone oven.

Alessio also recommended a couple of restaurants and a wine tour which we all enjoyed. The weather was very good with only some clouds the last two days but no rain. We used the pool (1.4 m deep) every day and especially the kids enjoyed it a lot. So all in all a great week.

Highly recommended!

Wir waren für drei Nächte. Poppi ist sehr hübsch und der Hof ist wunderschön. Tolles Frühstück und toller Pool. Wir haben unseren Aufenthalt genossen und werden auf jeden Fall nächstes Jahr wiederkommen... Vielleicht bekommen wir hier geheiratet!
