“Five hundred year old Villa San Pietro has been in the same family for centuries and a cosy, relaxed ambience pervades the property. The three rooms are all individually decorated and feature exposed beams and antique furnishings plus the modern standards of en suite bathrooms and tea & coffee making facilities. Breakfast is a scrumptious affair with homemade bread, cakes, muffins and jam plus ham, cheese, fruit - and anything else you might desire! There are plenty of eateries in the area, but you are welcome to join your hosts for dinner too. A visit here is all about being embraced by the family. Anna and Jacques make a point of going out of their way to ensure that every stay is one to remember, whether they've taken you to the local winery or cheese factory or taught you how to make top notch tagliatelli or simply pointed you in the right direction for a spot of local sight seeing. Villa San Pietro really is an Italian home from home.”
