“Amazing!”
Reviewed 16 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

If you're looking for a romantic getaway in the middle of nowhere, this is the place to be.
The Goat cottage is wonderful and surrounded by beautiful mountains and small Italian villages with great food and wine. Jill is a great host, we got everything we needed. A nice bed, a clean bathroom, a little kitchen and barbecue, a hot tub underneath the stars, what more can you want.

“Magic under the stars”
Reviewed 26 June 2016 for a stay in May 2016

If you want a peaceful and beautiful rural Italian getaway , you couldn't do better than Goat Cottage. It is a lovely little fully-equipped romantic rural retreat for two. Lying in bed listening to birds and looking at mountains, or barbecuing under the stars in the warm Italian evenings can't be surpassed. Sunbathing by the above-ground pool in the hot Italian summer with inexpensive and delicious local wines and cheeses is a great way to spend the afternoon after driving or riding in the local unspoilt National Park. The host is full of life and laughter, will teach you how to cook fabulous Italian meals and is a valuable source of information for the local area and all that it has to offer. Lighting a fire under the bath, then soaking in bubbly splendour surrounded by fairylights and starlight is a unique and magical experience. I would definitely recommend this quirky little cottage.

“Beautiful...just go and see it for yourself”
Reviewed 8 January 2016 for a stay in September 2015

I booked for 5 nights with my husband after seeing on a friends facebook page. I went over to the website immediately it sounded perfect and the owner (Jill) would pick us up from the airport, take us to the supermarket.....sold! The place is EXACTLY as described and more ..a little piece of paradise. So many beautiful things to see but my most favorite thing was to pick and cook all the home grown veg available..tasting Italy.....a perfect break...we shall be going back!!!!

I visited Goat Cottage in October, it was really cosy a comfortable bed,
lovely shower room and a nice little woodburning stove for the cool evenings. I would definitely recommend it, and would go back again.

“Breathtaking Views”
Reviewed 27 September 2015 for a stay in August 2015

If you want fabulous scenery, peace and tranquility, this is the perfect spot. Goat cottage is a mini home from home with everything you might need - comfortable bed, well equipped mini kitchen, and a great shower room. We made full use of the outdoor bbq area, which is complete with twinkling lights and the sound of crickets, just add a steak and a bottle of wine for the perfect evening outdoors.
And when the sun gets too hot, cool down and chill out in the pool with a glass of prosecco and admire the fabulous scenery across the valley.
Great place, had forgotten how lovely Italy is, and thanks Jill for some great hospitality. Will be back soon.
