If you want to experience Italy away from the tourist traps, I highly recommend that you visit this lovely area just 1 hour north of Venice. The owners grew up in this area but lived in the US for 20+ years. They understand the needs of Americans and the desire to see the Italy they love. Paolo Colle is the owner and a FUN host. He can help you customize a vacation ANY way you want it. He's a kid at heart and can plan many fun things. He knows every winery, castle and out of the way incredible restaurant you can imagine. The house is lovely, comfortable and tucked in a hillside with an incredible view. We sat and drank coffee while watching an international sky-diving show for an entire weekend...all from the front yard. Call Paolo and discuss your trip. I promise that you won't be disappointed.
