“The Dutch miracle in Italy!”
Reviewed 24 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015

A wonderful villa with a nice pool, beautiful flowers around, sunny weather and a lot of space to have a rest and to do any activities with your family, friends and even with your dogs! It's the place of my dream and I have spent an unforgettable week in this dream! The hosts (and their cute doggy) are the super ones, so kind, friendly, full of the positive energy - the true Dutchs! ;) Very talented and professional in their business. And if you need any help - they will not leave you alone with your problem!
The Miracle is situated in an amazing area not far away from Milan (about an hour of driving): a cosy village where you can see the countless vineyards, impressive hills, so there are really magnificent landscapes just before your eyes! Every day we have been enjoying these views from the pool and from the balcony!
By the way, about the vineyards... We also were lucky to have a very pleasant dinner with the hosts and their friends. So, had our experience of tasting the local wines and that was great! Different kinds and tastes, so many! And different effects! ;) And the Italian cooks (the hosts' friends) are also the real professionals - they can always present the national cuisine with its best traditions! So, don't miss that chance if you're invited!
The property is always well-prepared for new guests: never dirty, the order is everywhere, and there's enough square for even a big company. Two floors are offered, so you may choose, if neither reserved for the period, when you would like to stay there. All the furniture and all the equipment are very comfortable and look rather modern.
And at last, I also was so impressed by the enchanting garden! Looks incredible! My respect to the owners, it seems they work with it very much! So, it's also such a suitable place for those persons who love to be in the flower paradise and to take pictures of it!
My review could be endless to describe all the charms of that real fairy-tale but I guess it would be better if you go there and fall in love with it by yourself. I'm very grateful to these Dutch guys who organised such a perfect resort for me and my dogs during our staying there. The real reason of my visiting Italy was the World Dog Show'15 (Milan) but I couldn't even imagine that there's such a remarkable place with it's hospitality waiting for me. Really would like to come back. And hopefully, I will do it in the future. :)

Liked best: The quietness and the peace of that place, excellent relation to my dogs, very friendly and caring hosts, perfect type of the property, cleanness and order everywhere
Liked least: It's a very difficult question. :) Everything was at the highest level. Probably, the pool could be bigger and deeper, however, then it wouldn't be a variant for little children

“Superb accomodation with the nicest hosts we have ever met”

Getting there was interesting, delayed flight, faulty sat nav, no map and in the dark, however, our hosts guided us through the Italian Countryside via text - I cannot thank them enough. Great accomodation, travelled with my husband and 20 year old daughter. Excellent restaurant recommendations resulted in a superb stay, if bitter sweet - we were taking our daughter to Italy to study in Pavia for one year. So although 3 of us arrived, only 2 of us departed, however, it made our last days together as a family extremely enjoyable, helped out by Thomas, the dog! The views are stunning, the countryside is beautiful and we are intending to return.

“Idyllic location and wonderful hosts”
Reviewed 31 May 2011 for a stay in May 2011

My husband and I had the pleasure of staying at Villa I Due Padroni for 4 nights in May, 2011. What an incredible experience we had there. The property is owned and managed by a wonderful, warm, and caring couple who made our happiness their number one priority. Our villa, on the first level of the owners' home, was sparkling clean, spacious, and very well equipped. We had as well a private terrace with the best view possible, overlooking the vineyards, castles, and sunsets.
Upon arrival, we were met by the owners Stef and Nico. They were both very professional and welcoming. Little did we know then, but by the end of our stay, they were to become our good friends. They really strive to make sure their guests completely happy at all times. They even went so far as to set up a cooking class for us with a local chef, and then chauffeured us there and stayed with us to facilitate with translation.
The villa has parking in the yard, wi-fi that worked reliably, and TV with a number of stations in English. There are a number of excellent restaurants in the area, notably Osteria da Mamma Angela and Bagarellum, but with a full kitchen and gorgeous view, we also enjoyed preparing our dinners at the villa and dining on the terrace as the sun set. Some days we explored other towns in the area, and other days we discovered la dolce far niente.
Villa I Due Padroni is fantastic accommodation. Stef and Nico have worked hard and created the perfect vacation property. We will definitely stay there again.

“Fabulous PLace to see Pavia & Milan from”
Reviewed 30 May 2011 for a stay in April 2011

Being first time visitors to northern Italy, we couldn't have wished for a better place to stay. The owners are extremely friendly and very knowledgeable regarding where to eat, drink and the best places to visit locally.
we couldn't recommend this place more highly, the views from the balcony alone are well worth the trip.
