This is a really nice b&b located in the so called green heart of Italy, the Umbria region.
Guinzano means that bit over there, tell the elders of the area, and so this place is named in historical maps, and is really there that you have to go to arrive to Stefano and Daniela, and not only for eating or sleeping, but for live the experience of a place in which to forget for a moment the actual world and find yourself with friends, you've never known before, to talk about anything or listening to the sounds of silence around and find a sky where there are still the stars .
Yes, the place is definitely off the beaten track, you can not get there and ask if there is a vacancy or the menu, you must go for a first book of the six rooms, each decorated with different furniture, but all coming from homes of family and each with its own history.
The menu is made from the fields, from animals raised on their own, by season and by the imagination of Stephen.
So you'll sleep in the grandmother's bed, or open the closet of great uncle, even though the 6 rooms are comfortably equipped, all with air conditioning and private bathroom (one of the rooms have a Jacuzzi).
Guinzano is also a restaurant where the food is not only seen as a way to get nutrition, but it represents culture and history of the territory, rediscover the flavors and the moment of conviviality; which is why we devote time and care in finding products outside the great distribution and organic or traditional .
