We review each country house on a scale of 3 to 5, with 5 being the best category. We have looked at price, quality and x-factor and come up with a comprehensive review, which is largely made with the heart, and therefore is very personal.

A yellow gem in the green countryside

Villa Gorgo is situated among rolling hills, which one year is planted with wheat and the next year with spelt or sunflower. The village of Ghizzano can be reached with just a 15 minute walk. Giulio Venerosi Pesciolini, the great-grandfather of the current owners built the villa in 1878, and used the place as a hunting residence. 

The villa is 350 m2 on 2 floors with accommodation for 8 - 10 people.

On the ground floor is a large living room with fireplace surrounded by cozy sofas and not least a wonderful piano, a hall, utility room (for laundry), bathroom, well equipped kitchen and dining room. There is entrance to the house from both sides through the patio doors.

On the first floor there are three double bedrooms and a room with two single beds, four bathrooms one of which is with tub and the other three have a shower and a living room with fireplace where the 9. and 10. person will sleep on extra beds. The interior is very exquisite, and the furniture is antique. There are ceilings with exposed beams.

Outside the dining room and the kitchen is a large terrace suitable for outdoor dining and a pool with a Roman staircase. From up here you can see the spectacular mountains stretching to the horizon. At dawn you can maybe spot deer - either in groups or in pairs - as this is one of their favorite places to pass.

You have the opportunity to participate in pasta courses and yoga classes. Furthermore you can see honey harvest if it is that time of the year. Please ask at the villa for request and price.
