"Fantastic place to enjoy delicious food and beautiful nature"
My stay at Anna's place was absolutely fantastic, I loved everything about it. Anna is a lovely person, and a great cook. We got along really well and she taught me how to make a delicious risotto, among other things. The houses are beautifully renovated, the area surrounding it absolutely stunning. I took some cooking lessons with Catharina, a yoga class with Antonello, a wine tour and a cheese tour, and everything was great. I had so much fun and everyone I met was so nice. This is the perfect place to get away from hectic life, eat the the freshest, most regional food and learn more about it, take hikes, yoga classes... Also quite important, it's really easy to get there and there is even a bus to take you to the other villages and to the bigger town, Sora.

I just returned from a 4-day holiday based at A Piana after a hectic business schedule in Rome at a conference, and it was the perfect anecdote. The accommodations are rustic and comfortable, and host Anna is very welcoming and accommodating (and a very good cook) and planned many great activities for us - cooking classes at a local agritourismo, a winery tour, cheese making tour, etc. Her beautiful English Setter, "Neve", is a sweetheart and property mascot. We also visited several lovely local towns, an Abbey, castle ruins, etc. The area is stunningly beautiful, and I must acknowledge our wonderful local driver, Federico. The people could not be more friendly and their sense of community is inspiring. Italy as one must experience it. Highly recommended!
