Free Tips on a well decorated home

It’s Travel Tuesday! In this installment, we’re headed to the region in Italy where Procescco comes from and visiting the agritourismo Relais Dolcevista – ah the sweet life for us! Nestled into the side of a hill overlooking vineyards, this small rustic hotel is charm itself. It’s located in Valdobbiadene, which is in Treviso in the North of Italy, just below the Alpine-Dolomite areas of Veneto. It’s climate is perfect for a cool variety of grape called Glera.

My lovely niece Katie and her new husband Marc stayed here on their honeymoon in the early summer and they loved it. So, firstly, what IS an “Agritourismo”, which is, no surprise, Agritourism in English. Basically, it’s a farming or other similar agriculturally based operation (such as a vineyard) that brings visitors, aka tourists.

Naturally, an agriculturally based location will be all about the outdoors and the natural environment. The Dolcevista is comprised of a small stone farmhouse with lots of private areas for relaxing, dining (and drinking prosecco!) and being generally romantic. Sounds like a perfect place for a honeymoon!

I think this is the room – the Prosecco – that the newlyweds stayed in.

Have you been to an Agritourismo or other agriculturally based hotel or tourist destination? I’d love to hear about it!

 

(yes, I know Under the Tuscan Sun isn’t set in Northern Italy, but it’s worth putting in anyway!)
