Once again we adored our visit to Lugo with the Rossi family. They are the most thoughtful and interesting young couple you could imagine joining for a vacation. Elisabetta is a true host in every sense of the word. She and Claudio work tirelessly to help their guests enjoy every aspect of their stay. The home is immaculate and the food incredible. I understand why they have a wait list for many weekends. Do try and visit their home near Ravenna. You will be pampered or left alone if you like. It is entirely up to you. This is a couple that you will enjoy meeting and getting to know and the location and charm of their home makes me never want to stay in another hotel again. Love!!!
I can't wait to come back and stay with Claudio and Elisabeth (sp) and their family. This is a lovely farm just a stones throw from a small town near the coastal town of Ravenna and just outside of Lugo, not more than a few restaurants and local businesses. The farm has a beautiful large yard and open fields surround the house with grapes, vegetables and fruit trees. Across the lot are the family's prodigious bee-hives, lovingly nurtured by Claudio's precise and natural skill. Here you will be treated to incredibly honest and open discussions, family meals and gracious, helpful and sweet normal life in the Italian countryside. The rooms are sparkling clean, beds are comfortable and large and the bathrooms couldn't be nicer in a family home. If you want privacy you will get it. If you want interaction you will get it. This family embraces and savors each visitor as if they were a relative. We watched stars together and cooked pasta. Honestly I cant think of a nicer place to stay that is also a great point to take little day trips to nearby towns such as Verona, Ravenna (not for me), Venice or little Venice, Parma or to the south. You will be happy to come back home to this quiet, lovely little sanctuary off the beaten path. Horses, chickens, bees, flowers and fresh fruits and vegetables. I'm sad to have left but will be back. Thank you for this lovely retreat and your incredible kindness to me and my son.
