Private room in house with large garden, with proper rich breakfast and use of kichen, right in the middle of the medieval village of Montebruno, on the banks of River Trebbia, inside the natural reserve of Parco dell'Antola, and about 1 hour drive from Genoa, Montebruno is tiny but full of life and shops, and there's also a good pizzeria / restaurant. If you love colours, quietness and a relaxed homely atmosphere (and cats, for I have one big white cat!) this is the place for you.

The space

I do my best for guests to feel at home here, not just stopping for a bed. Happy to provide all informations about surroundings and activities, from hiking to horse riding or fishing. I'm happy for guests to cook their own meals and have a good breakfast, with choice of tea, coffee, milk, cookies, fresh fruit, yoghurt, muesli, homemade cakes and jams and local bread.

Guest access

You can access every space of the house except the living room and the garden during night time, 'cause I sleep there on the sofa bed.

Interaction with guests

You will find flyers and informations about the area in your room, but I'm more than happy to give you hints about the Antola Park area and Genova, and make / share drinks and dinner together if you fancy some italian style home-made food.

Other things to note

Before any guest arrives all the house, and particularly the guests' room and the bathroom, are deeply cleaned with antibacterial detergents. Anyway, the house - as all the village - is old, so please consider that what might seems not spotless is simply worn by the time. That's definitely one of the things I like of living in a place with an history!

Parking for cars is free in free and safe in the public square 200mt away. But if you're travelling by bicycle or motorbike I have indoor and locked space easily accessible for you in the basement.

Monica was a wonderfully generous and welcoming host. This house is right in the centre of the little town but also secluded in the sense that the town is amongst beautiful hills and greenery. We loved our stay here, the adorable friendly cat was a bonus.

Nice location in a beautiful small town. Excellent local bakery (150 years old!), and everything you need to eat within 2min walk. Monica was very welcoming and good with advice. Nice breakfasts in the morning.

Monica is very friendly and easy going. Although she hosted me for just one night, we had the opportunity to talk almost about everything. Did I mention the great breakfast?

Monica was a great host, she did all for us, we could wash our clothes, we had good breakfast in the morning, and she gave us ideas and advice where to go and what to see around her lovely village, Montebruno. Although it's not easy to get to the village with local transport, especially on holidays, she gave us the schedule and explained us everything. It's a beautiful place in the mountains with an amazing Restaurant and a bakery with the best sandwich ever! I absolutely recommend her and her place! Thank you, Monica!

Hello, I'm Monica, I'm 45, I live in Montebruno from September 2015, after 10 years in Genoa. My main job is being booking agent and doing promotion for music bands, I'm also a music blogger / journalists. I love music of course, especially rock'n'roll, garage, shoegaze, psych, but I listen to many different things! I love travelling, I've been travelling a lot for my job all over Europe, and I enjoy meeting new people. I've been living in London for 2 years too, and for a short time in Berlin. In summer 2015 and February 2016 I've been working in Iceland, at Lambhus Gisting (guesthouse in the South East) and Selfoss Hostel, at cleaning and reception. Making people happy with their travels is definitely something I love, as I love cooking, gardening, and any other form of creativity. My motto? "Let's try it? Not, let's do it!" :)
