Internet reviews

It's been a long time since I do not post... Holidays started and we kept working and working (the house needed repair and the farm keeps us quite busy all over the year), now I'm really on holidays, spending a few days with friends in Madrid!
I'll be back soon and will start posting photos that I had no time to post during the season, including some great shots that guests sent us.
Year after year we notice that we love our job and that most of the guests who come and share our house with us are great people with whom we love to spend time with. We've been thinking about this and we understood that the main reason is that word to mouth (either "live" or through the web) became our first source of new guests.
This is why we really would like you to write a review about your stay at the Locanda on the internet and of course talk about it (the old way) with your friends. This way people coming to the Locanda next year will be just like you: a group of lovely, interesting and caring people.

You can read what past guests wrote about their stay with us at the TRIPADVISOR.COM website and visiting this page from SLOWTRAV.COM (great resource for travel information and hugely helpful and friendly travel forum).

By the way... MERRY CHRISTMAS to those of you who celebrate it!!!

Our stay was magical -- we think about it all the time. We were there during the heat wave last July. It was so hot. The drought lasted much longer than we expected. But we were grateful to know the reality of the situation, and to empathize with the predicament this causes to people who farm for a living. It would be so easy to vacation in "Disney Land" -- whether in the United States or in Europe. At this farm near Urbino, we met a family struggling to adapt to dramatic climate conditions, aging (but vital) parents intent on sustaining their traditions, their devoted (and conflicted) daughter doing her best to continue their legacy. The photographs are captivating, but there is no substitute for staying here and getting to know this family and their farm.

Thank you Jean for your comment!
Luckily we had a proper winter this year so hopefully no drought! :)
Glad you have fond memories of your stay.
Best wishes from us all!
