Hi... I'm Bernardo Manzitti I work for an auction house that sells antiquities and old masters paintings.
Hi guys! I just wanted to thank this beautiful family for everything they did to make our stay great. We will keep warm memories from that stay and we really recommend that place for a stay.
You will really appreciate this charming house and the awesome breakfast served with local organic products.
Enjoy your stay guys!
It was such a pleasure and a great honor to stay for a couple of days with this family in a house of my dream. We enjoyed every detail, every old picture on the wall and even chocolates in the bathroom. The breakfasts were great! Thank you so much for this, for home-made jam and local cookies! Though the place is not really touristic, it would be a really perfect house to stay for those who drive a car and want to travel Italy without big cities and famous places.
We loved the house so much!
Staying in La Fornace was a great experience. The place itself has so much character and history, a cool stone house with a shady garden. Stefanie, Bernardo's mother, has accommodated us with much care and love, both towards the adults and the children. The information about possible activities was fabulous. We also made quick friendship with Tito, the dog. Breakfast included the famous local "Focaccia Spirata" and there were fresh fruits (sweet local peaches, plums from the garden, tomatoes and basil) as well as, of course, plenty of coffee. The kids loved the toys available in the children's room. The wine country around Gavi is beautiful, and also Genua is not too far away. We can highly recommend this place - thanks Stefania, thanks Bernardo!
Bernardo's home is such a lovely house only a quick walk away from Cassano Spinola's town center. The atmosphere is fantastic and Bernardo's family, especially his mom, took good care of us and spoke very good English.
Bernardo was very swift and accurate in his replies to my inquiry and also gave me a list of things to do and which restaurants to visit in the area after the booking. I can definitely recommend staying at La Fornace for anyone who want to experience something else than the busy streets of Milan!
Soggiorno molto carino. La mamma di Bernardo è una persona piacevole, la casa comoda ma con un giardino ampio, silenziosa.. Ci è piaciuto moltissimo!
Very nice real Italian place, old and charming! Bernardo will do anything to help you, and make your stay as good as posible! The breakfirst was very nice to, among a lot of other Things, we got some amazing cake :D And as a plus to this stay, they had fireflys in the garden!! Amazing!
We had a warm welcome in the familyhouse.
Very nice people who spoke good enough English. Lovely dinner.
A nice place to stay.
Bernardo's place was absolutly great and wonderfull a very big old mansion with all kinds of fruittrees in the garden.
The bed we slept in was hugh and we fell like the Dukes of........ Tortona
His mother is a great hosts with many nice stories to tell! like the house and the kitchen it is an inspirational enviroment.
It is a pitty we stayed for only one night
So if you are planning to visit Tortona country it is a must to stay!!!
It was very very great time to stay in his place. His family was so kind and open minded. Also, I loved the old italian house. Breakfast was amazingly good. I would definitely stay again ! :)
Bernardo and friends were very neat, wonderful men. They can come back to my house anytime.
I am curious if Luca or Stefano was able to solve my creation (spherexyz puzzle)which I gift to tenants... something to keep them amused on long plane rides back home.. a bit of an American Dream in their hands...
Very gracious. A pleasure to host.
