So you have been doing the northern highlands version of bumper cars for the last 4 hours, and need a hot shower, hot food, and somewhere to sit still preferably with an appropriate lubricant in your glass. But you passed "Gods Country" 2 hours ago, and "remote" just doesn't apply anymore. You turn down a lane and suddenly see Julie Andrews belting out The Sound of Music, on a Swiss hilltop dotted by mooing black and white cows. You have arrived at Hacienda San Antonia, and her partner ranch Mil Amores. Lucky you!
These are family owned working ranch/farms, which just happen to have a few guest rooms/ cottages for let. The farm was settled in 1880? by an Italian family(I'm assuming from the Italian Alps since it looks just like that area). Its a working dairy farm with about 50? dairy cows that are hand-milked twice a day. The ranch house, dining room, bedrooms, cottages, are older, very clean and very Alpine..The homemade meals are WONDERFUL, and there is plenty to eat. I was there with an NGO(international charity), and several American expats stayed there also, so even tho remote, its well known in that area. Go there for a treat!
