We (2 adults and 2 children of the ages 5 and 2) slept in a regular room (named Ronco de Sera as one of the local wine) for 2 nights during May 2012. The room was brand new, and very clean, tastefully decorated and equipped with a closet, a table with 4 chairs, free wifi, small refrigerator and a large bathroom, with excellent local cosmetics products. The owner and manager of Cavril, Laura's hospitality was nothing less than amazing. She gave us a tour to their winery and explained about the wine production process and recommended some great places to eat with the children in the near village. She prepared our breakfast on her own including delicious homemade cakes, jams, fresh juices, coffee and tea. The dining room is located just in front of a huge balcony with an amazing view to the south. It also serves as a restaurant serving local cuisine dishes, but unfortunately it was not open on the days of our visit.
Cavril is set up in the mountains of Fontanella, near Sotto il Monte Giovanni XXIII, less than 30 minutes from the lovely city of Bergamo. The place served as an excellent base for star trips in the area, including a day trip to Bergamo. The rooms are located at the top of the highest hill in the area (be prepared for a very steep ride, but the view and the place are well worth it) with a marvelous view of the surrounding. The farm's green vineyards and the ancient abbey can be seen from the room's balconies (all rooms face the panoramic view). On one of the nights of our stay there was a thunder storm on the valley below, and we had first row seats to the spectacular event from our bed! The place is very quiet, and is highly recommended to anyone who values tranquility, personal attention and warmhearted welcome.
