We had been driving from Venice, I'd lost the printed map to AltraVista, when we met a wonderful man by the side of the road who had a phone and called Fabio, found out where we were to go, gave us directions, and, well, by the end of our interaction we'd invited him to our home in the States and he offered us his in a house swap! It was a magical saving moment at the end of a long day. When we arrived, Fabio was waiting for us outside the church next door. After we moved our things into the rooms, he offered me a glass of wine and I took it gratefully. We started talking like we'd known each other for a long time. The place was great - the common area, the mature gardens, the tables outside, the rooms - clean and spacious and comfortable - everything done with great taste and sense of design. We were hiking all of the next day til very late at night, so didn't see Fabio much except for breakfast (which was lovely). It was during breakfast that he suggested a walking route, which train tickets to buy, and where we might eat. All his advice was perfect. We had the most memorable time those two-three days in Levanto. I can't wait to return when time permits again. Fabio was very engaging - an interesting person who worked hard to make sure everyone was taken care of. Thank you Fabio!
