What Guests Say

Casa degli Orsi, Piedmont, Italy


"What a joyous place, spacious and beautifully finished, with a real sense that it is very well loved. And what a view! We hope to return one day for a longer stay, with a bigger group, and have luxuriant feasts at the lovely big dining table. Splendid!"



"We wanted to tell you how much we appreciated your wonderful house! It is’ un bijou’! We felt so well there that we spent much time in the courtyard, bathing in the sun, discussing, having nice lunches, etc. etc. But especially we felt that the view of the valley, the vineyards, the village - is a very inspiring place, for thinking, for artists, for writing.... We appreciated every detail in the house, from the furniture to the décor, the nice kitchen, everything perfectly fitting to this Italian ‘Slow Food’ Piedmont. We found really good food and went very often to Acqui Terme where we loved the atmosphere and ate our daily ice cream there. This little town is a jewel!"

Gite: Manoir La Goziniere


"The warm welcome, stunning manor house and surroundings, and stylish Gite gave us an authentic taste of rural France. Peter and Caroliyn are the perfect hosts; charming yet unobtrusive, and we spent seven days of bliss enjoying the swimming pool, beautiful parkland and cooking with organic vegetables from the garden whilst relaxing in the warm sunshine and fresh air. My daughters made a lifelong friend in the form of Figaro, the cheeky ginger kitten who still corresponds regularly with the girls, and whose photo hangs in their bedroom! Thoroughly recommended for those who wish to get away from it all".

Sam Loggie, Sculptor, London
