The space

OUR DISADVANTAGES:

1. the house doesn't have it's own private entrance , It is a part of a row of 17 century houses ( very typical to the Italian country side) and the entrance is through the neighbors' garden.
So...
you'll need to take a few paces through someone else's property to get to our gate.

2.
this is a small village,
so...
you can't park anywhere,(there is a large parking area where you can safely leave your car), pick fruit off the many “abandoned” fruit trees, you need to keep your voice down when you return late at night and there will be occasions in which you'll be awaken by a tractor working in the vineyards.
But
the people here are wonderful and friendly, the mini market will sell you everything you need - and never knew that you needed...(and include gossip and advice in the local dialect...) and hearing Natalino sing in the morning as he's checking on his grapes is something that you'll never forget.

3. we have no indoor public area in which to socialize, or a kitchen to cook in.
But
there is the beautiful garden and pool area and really great weather most of the year...and there are 2 fantastic, very reasonably priced, restaurants and an excellent pizzeria within 5 minute walk (you can bring the pizza over and eat it by the pool... just don't let the owners catch you...)

4. the pool.
It pains us to write this since we've done all the digging and deck building with our own hands... but, it is nowhere as big or glamorous as some of the things you see out here...
a real pool is not permitted in this area because it's the old historical center and because it really disturbs the amazing view of the vineyards
BUT...
what we have, is a big tub (4x8m oval) surrounded by trees and wildlife and a lovely wooden deck – which is a real treat on hot summer days! (so, if you can afford that Tuscan villa with the real pool, you should probably take it and please take us along with you too....)

5. mosquitoes. We have them in the summer!
But...
no but ... there's actually no way to spin this one...!
They come out as the sun goes down and unless you're protected or a local (they mostly pick on tourists...), you'll get eaten alive.
The city and the region are working on ways to solve the problem, and, in some years they've actually succeeded, but until they'll come come up with a real solution –
bring bug spray!!!.
... The thing is, you'll have that same problem EVERYWHERE else, only they won't tell you about it (not everyone is as nice as us...) and if the place that you're staying at doesn't have mosquitoes... than someone is spraying like crazy every 5 minutes! In which case, let's face it, you've got a bigger problem then mosquitoes.

That's it!
So, if we haven't scared you away and you're still reading this and want to stay with us – you're our kind of person! And we'd love to have you!

Thank you Taffy for being a kind and accommodating host. Taffy's residence is a quaint B&B with a nice breakfast and a comfortable bed. The grounds are very green and floral, making one feel right at home in the beautiful old home.

Nice bedroom with private bathroom on third floor of this home located amongst fields of grapes. We loved the area of Soave and had a great stay at Taffys. The breakfast was of my taste, freshly home made dark bread with homemade jams, muffin, tea/coffee and orange juice. The gar…
