If you are looking for a quiet break away from busy tourist areas, look no further than David and Penny’s beautiful house in the mountains and by the lakes. It was exactly what we needed to refresh and relax. We arrived for a short stay before travelling to other parts of Italy

Thank you for your query we do not have a website, as we have found the BLOG to be proactive and can portray our B&B and the surrounding area much more comprehensively. The beauty with a BLOG is that it is updated almost daily, with local news, tourist links, restaurants. There are over 5000 photo's throughout the season so you'll certainly gain am excellent overview. If you have any specific requests please just ask. I note you are enquiring from Hong Kong a special place for me as I used to be involved in textiles and fashion and visited quite frequently. What time of the year are you thinking of visiting, maybe I can offer a few suggestions for your trip. Our best wishes, always a warm welcome! David and Penny Whitwam La Casa del Giardiniere

"A beautiful room."
"The annexe has its own door (as opposed to being part of the main house) with a brialliant bathroom and views over the hills. "
"The annexe is private and for one or two people but there are also rooms inside the house with more beds"
"There are stairs involved , if that is an issue. Speak to David"
"Comfy beds with beautifully laundered white cotton lawn sheets - a real treat."
US$51 - US$130 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
