I am director specialized in travel guide and even living not far from this place I never know it till 2 month ago. I am not often in Italy and usually have little of spare time to go round but ,by the end of June, I was looking for a nice accommodation equipped with internet and modern comforts better if located in an ancient house to use how location for a film of mines. I went to visit a Buddhist temple nearby then before going back home I decided to go off the beaten track and stroll around following country roads cut among vineyards and other cultivation carpeting the surrounding hills. How many artists, colours and some unexplained signs pushed me to follow this unusual short name "LU". It recalled me the village of Å in Lofoten island, just one letter to name it. Thanks to my innate curiosity I found this little village based on his medieval plot with a plenty of churches and some very beautiful observation pint from which you can look at the Alps and its astounding landscape.
You can see in my added photo. In this context was not difficult to find Palazzo Paleologi Resort cause is the most suitable accommodation in the village and anyone can show how to reach it within a few minute walk. Great place, I had the chance to eat in nearby restaurant that is not owned by the same property so, of course I had to pay a separate bill for it but I am used at it travelling often in Norway and other Scandinavian countries, checking my website you discover how many videos I have done in those places.
Food was delicious prepared and I had a good selection of wine to choose even from local wineries. Very good, I tasted the so called "Gnocchi" made with special bacon in Italian called "speck", butter and some aromas. They had a very thin crust hiding a very soft creamy content.....and...I suggest to taste it cause I miss the words to describe the whole dinner.
I found my room clean and comfortable for staying also a bit longer than a week-end cause it was equipped with a little kitchen completely furbished.
In general, I found the resort being a good place. It is not far from Milan, Turin and other major cities of Northern Italy so, it can be suitable for attending fairs and sleeping out of city sounds.
By the end I enjoyed my two visits and noted it for a possible film location too.
