Wow! What a great place, we were welcomed by Mauro with open arms.
My husband and I got Married on May 27th this year. Because my husband is Italian we had a celebration of the marriage in Polcenigo.
We stayed at Casa in Borgo on September 24 and 25. It was a real home away from home. Beautiful surroundings, the home was clean, cosy and very spacious. We would recommend Casa in Borgo to anybody.
We are two retired couples, from opposite sides of the world, who enjoy meeting up each year to explore a corner of Europe. Casa in Borgo in Polcenigo fulfilled our every desire: the perfect home in a beautiful part of the world.
The villa is exceptional: beautifully furnished and very well appointed. Mauro encourages his guests to use all the lovely crockery, glassware, candles etc. Despite extremely warm weather we did not need to use the air conditioner. The rooms remained cool and airy. Three weeks of electricity for 4 – without using a/c or clothes dryer – was a mere 35 euro. A basket of maps and travel guides was extremely helpful, and Mauro himself is full of excellent ideas to help you enjoy the perfect holiday for you. He introduced us to wonderful restaurants and advised us on travel routes, and can arrange golf, fishing, cycling, horse riding etc.
We were able to visit Trieste, Padova, Venice, Lake Garda (two and a half hours’ drive, to catch up with friends) and less well known gems such as Spilimbergo (mosaic school), Cividale, Belluno, Valvasone, Aquileia. A visit to breathtaking Lake Barcis is a must – emerald water surrounded by glorious mountains.
There are many beautiful walks in the area, as well the stunning mountain scenery of the Dolomites visible on every drive.
Polcenigo is a lovely town, with bars, pizzerias, supermarket and the world’s best gelataria. Our evening ritual was to treat ourselves to a new flavour.
We had the good fortune to arrive in Polcenigo just prior to the weekend of the 400 year old Basket Festival. Saturday was fairly quiet, but this gave us a chance to chat to the vendors of cheese, meat, condiments about the local products and how they were made. Sunday was amazing, with thousands of people enjoying the market stalls, demonstrations of traditional basketry, all manner of crafts, music, food etc.
Mauro is very knowledgeable about, and proud of, the Friuli – Giulia – Venezia Region and wants his guests to enjoy and appreciate the Italian love of fine food and good company. He and Miki do everything to make your stay perfect. Our holiday was just sublime.
From the emails prior to the trip to our fond farewells, this was a winner of a location and stay. I honestly don't know where to begin.
Hosts: Mauro and Michaela were so accommodating and eager and proud of their lovely property, they truly enhanced our stay and made it an experience to treasure. Mauro is very prompt in responding to emails and phone calls to make sure everything was going well. Almost every day he checked in and gave us suggestions on where to go, eat or how to best travel. Note to the wise: the days we followed his suggestions were our most memorable.
Home: better than expected, the pictures don't do it justice. Clean, well stocked, and steps to the coffee shop, gelatateria, and an excellent pizza restaurant. The home backs to a river and they have just completed a lovely patio. We enjoyed this patio both mornings for coffee anD evenings for gelato. Anything you could ask for was in the kitchen and dining room cupboards. The living room was enormous and included a piano and TV. Master bedroom was very large, included a bath and dressing room. Every room had its own air conditioner all of which were very effective n cooling down the rooms. The 300 year old building is so solid that we rarely needed the AC. Just closing everything up every morning before leaving was effective and saved on our electric bill. Note: our electric bill for 4 people for a week was 32 euros. We did not consider this bad at all and it included the AC/washer/dryer and charging of 4 iPhones and iPads every day so we did not skimp on usage, but yours may vary. Be sure and close everything down. We also closed the shutters in the master and kitchen to block the sun during the day.
Location: this is what topped off our stay. We were in a small town about an hour down the autostrade from the Venice airport. Aviano airbase is about 15 minutes and the location is great for visiting family and friends stationed there, which we did on 2 evenings.
Google maps provided great directions our entire trip. When there you are within minutes of the foot hills of the Dolomites. We spent an entire day there and absolutely loved the mountains - they were so impressive and we are from Colorado so our expectations were quite high. We drove 2 hours aNd were in Cortina, the famous ski resort. Also within 2 hours were Verona and Trieste. I. The best part though were the surrounding wine vineyards and small towns where we enjoyed the culture and markets.
My wife and I recently had the good fortune to call Casa in Borgo home for 5 weeks. The owner and his family's welcoming nature and genuine passion for life in Polcenigo, helped to make us feel at home immediately. Mauro's helpful nature made choosing everything from the right restaurants to tourist destinations much easier and more enjoyable. The location in the center of the ancient village of Polcenigo, located at the foot of the mountains with the beautiful Gorgazzo river running past the back patio, made relaxation easy. Polcenigo is close enough via short car ride to reach larger cities for dining, shopping and sight-seeing. Venice, Udine, Piancavallo, Pordenone and Sacile are all beautiful destinations that are reachable in less than an hour drive. We will definitely be returning to our new home away from home!
Our family of 5 stayed in Case en Borgo for a month this fall. It is a beautiful property tended to by a beautiful family. The home has a comfortable and spacious living room, master bedroom suite, and upstairs loft area that accommodated our 3 kids very well. But the best part of the house is the Duck Room-- a large dining room with open fireplace that overlooks the river. Walking distance to local pizza, gelotto, and a nice cafe. We'll certainly be back.
We spent a little more than two weeks in Casa in Borgo and we had beautiful holidays there. The house is affectionately renovated and furnished and appointed with everything you need for a comfortable stay.
Our hosts, Michela and Mauro, took care of us in a heart-warming manner. Already when we booked the house, we had a warm and friendly contact via e-mail. When staying in Polcenigo, they always supplied us with insider information about good restaurants, interesting cities and villages, beautiful beaches, with delicious red wine and selfmade ragu.
Polcenigo is a lovely village with a sensational gelateria, a traditional bakery and many other things that are worth to see. You can reach cities like Venice, Padua, Triest in a reasonable time and also the coast and the impressing mountains.
Unfortunately our holidays weren't long enough to see all the interesting places we wanted to see and to taste all of the sorts of the handmade ice cream in the gelateria. But we relaxed very well, we got a lot of new impressions and we were very happy having met Michela, Mauro and her daughter.
In Polcenigo konnten wir fern von großen Touristenströmen "echtes" Italien erleben, so u.a. den Dorfplatz auf dem bis spät am Abend Leben, aber kein Lärm war, kleine Geschäfte, in denen wir alles Nötige kaufen konnten, eine wunderschöne Atmosphäre. Wir haben entspannte, freundliche und herzliche Menschen kennengelernt und den Urlaub sehr genossen. Eines Tages kommen wir gerne wieder.
Polcenigo is an ancient town, placed among the most beautiful villages in Italy, you can breathe the air of history: a few steps away is the Park of San Floriano, a 50-minute train arrives in the beautiful and unique city of Venice . Golf, skiing, horseback riding, tennis, beaches, folklore, wineries are located a short distance from the house in the village, where you can stay in full relax, between things and atmospheres of taste that make this home a corner of paradise.
