We just returned from a wonderful seven night stay at B&B La Cavanella, a quaint and charming three story house, which is immersed in beautiful natural surroundings, and which we highly recommend to anyone looking for a relaxing getaway (with or without kids). It is a remote place, detached from civilization, but it was exactly what we wanted - a place where we could escape the outside world, be alone, recharge and relax in calm surroundings and beautiful views. The house is located in between Florence and Bologna - 45 minutes away (by car) from both cities; so we hired a car and managed to experience the best of both worlds. The hosts, Donato and Maria are warm, lovely and very friendly people, who always made sure that we were happy and satisfied throughout our stay. Maria is a very good cook, and we were very lucky to watch her prepare hand-made pasta and pies with fresh ingredients in the kitchen on more than one occasion - a lovely experience for the kids and us alike. We enjoyed lovely chats with Donato and he made us feel as if we are part of his family. I would love to return. We had a great time!
