“Albarosa's property is a charming example of an old Gorizia home and she went to a great deal of trouble to point us to some wonderful restaurants and vineyards as well as spending a most interesting day in Trieste. We recommend this swap to anyone looking to explore this part of north east Italy.”
Albarosa's reviewsAs a host (2)
“Cormòns and the Colio (the surrounding area) must be the best kept secret in Italy. We stayed there because it was within two hours of where my cousins lived and I thought it would be fun to explore a new place. Wow, was I right! If you love wine, good (no, actually great) food, the sea and historic places; you won’t be disappointed. If you like to hike, there are great trails everywhere in the area. Slovenia is quite close by, too. Every day we would drive through the vineyards to charming villages or take a winding road along the sea, stopping along the way for a gourmet lunch at decidedly not gourmet prices. At night we would walk into town (10 minutes) and have an aperitif and often dinner at Carmela’s Trattoria where we were treated like locals after the first night. It was so much fun to watch the villagers come and go, many of the same faces every night. Albarosa’s home has been in her family for generations and carries its history well. There are photos, artifacts and books from many decades. It was a bit like living in a farmhouse museum. She is an interior decorator so there are nice touches everywhere. She provides great information, maps and brochures on the area so we never ran out of ideas for our day trips. There is easy parking nearby which is a real bonus. The house was always quiet in spite of being on a semi-busy street. We loved the location because we could easily get anywhere without having to drive through Cormòns. ”
