A 15th Century Farmhouse in Italy... Turned Bed & Breakfast

Monday, July 25, 2016


As soon as we arrived, I couldn't stop pointing out all of the beautiful furniture to Cam. Especially this gorgeous wooden farm table!

I like to share the places that we've stayed at and loved for anyone else that may be traveling to the same area. The gems are not always easy to find! Ca Cinello is a bed and breakfast just outside of Asolo, Italy in a beautifully restored 15th century farmhouse. The owners have worked hard to retain the history of the house and you can see that in every detail from the original stone pavers and wood beams to all of the antique furniture they've carefully found. There's only two bedrooms on a large gated property (with horses and a couple sweet dogs!) so it's quiet and peaceful and it was the perfect place to let our kids run around and explore. We brought John Shea's strider bike and he was off riding at every chance with all of the dogs by his side. He was in heaven! What really made this place special though is the family who runs it. Frederico and Kata could not have been more warm, gracious or hospitable. Alberto, (who restored the house!) thank you for the bottles of prosecco and for staying up all night outside around the table, sharing your wisdom and humor with us!


I loved the fresh hydrangeas everywhere!


And the gravel drive lined with citrus trees in terra cotta pots.


How beautiful is this work table? It's the number one thing I hope to find at the antique market while we're here!


Villa Barbaro, just a ten minute drive down the road from Ca Cinello.

  1. Beautiful! I saw your Instagram last week that you were in Italy. We just returned from Positano and it was so wonderful. The food and scenery just couldn't be beat and our daughter had such an amazing time! Too bad our paths didn't cross:) Maybe some day in Colorado!
