Hosts: Nico Boots and Stef Smulders
Address: Villa I Due Padroni B&B, Frazione Spagna 9, 27047 Montecalvo Versiggia, (PV), Italy
Activities/Attractions: Villa I Due Padroni is situated in the province of Pavia, Lombardy. The southern part of this province is called the Oltrepò Pavese. "Oltre (il) Po" means literally: on the other side of the Po - the major river that dominates the large plain, the "Pianura Padana" of Northern Italy. South of the Po the plain quickly becomes hilly: this area lies at the foothills of the Ligurian Alpes and the Apennines. The Oltrepò actually is the largest wine producing region of Lombardy. Our Villa lies in an enchanting landscape of smooth hills that are covered with vineyards and that offer magnificent views.
Leaving the villa you immediately step into the vineyards and will enjoy the tranquility, the magnificent views and the lovely weather. Sometimes the sky is so clear that you can see the Alpes 150 km away! You're free to walk through all the vineyards, people put up fences only around their houses. Nobody will be surprised and stare at you if they see you strolling among their vines. On the contrary, they will greet you friendly and start a conversation. This means that you can walk in any direction: to Santa Maria della Versa, Lirio and further. We will be pleased to give you some ideas for interesting hikes, ranging from an hours stroll to a day-trip.
Italians love race cycling. A popular cycling route runs by the villa: for the passionate cyclists and mountain bikers this area is ideal and challenging. Of course, you can also make short trips by car. The roads are not busy. En route, hiking, cycling, or by car, you can hardly miss the many bars, restaurants, trattorias or what else there is to cater for the hungry and thirsty. Many wine farms offer the opportunity to taste the local wines: a "degustazione".
"Have your breakfast served on the panoramic terrace. This is an experience you won't forget! The food is only surpassed by the magnificent view over the valley."
General Information: Welcome to Villa I Due Padroni Bed and Breakfast ... situated in the beautiful hills and vineyards of the Oltrepò Pavese, in Lombardy in the North of Italy. This is a region in which century old villages alternate with castles and forests and it is no surprise that this region is sometimes called the Tuscany of Lombardy. Villa I Due Padroni is situated in the municipality of Montecalvo Versiggia, which consists of more than 50 hamlets, or "Frazioni". Our B&B holiday apartment is one of the nine houses in Frazione Spagna. Next to Spagna lie the "Frazioni" Francia, Casella and Tromba.
We rent out the apartment on a weekly basis. A shorter stay is possible however, on request. Please contact us if you prefer a shorter stay. In case the apartment is not let in its entirety, you may opt for a stay as a Bed & Breakfast guest. In this case you pay per room per night (two persons). We have two rooms available. Our Villa is child friendly and has been judged as ideal for families with little children by several of our guests. Dogs are welcome at our Villa, as we are dog lovers ourselves. The Oltrepò Pavese still is a truly unspoiled region and has not yet been discovered by the tourist industry. You will hardly run across any foreign license plates here!
