After the successful publication of Camera con vigna in 2010 (out of stock), Adriano Bacchella proposes once more a selection of relais country hotels and bed & breakfasts from around Italy, with his splendid photographs and the descriptions penned by Franco Faggiani, magical places in our country, whose common denominators are the vineyards surrounding them.

People want to have a vacation in the country more than in any other places.

This is confirmed by official data about «rural tourism», the only kind still experiencing continuous growth, and by the owners of agricultural companies, farms, and family properties who wanted and knew how to share the best parts of their rural life with their guests, by opening the doors of their homes: carefully restored farmhouses, illustrious residences, estates transformed into small “relais”, magical places where one can get in contact with nature.

Buildings in isolated, yet protected places, or right next to small hamlets, properties with an illustrious past, often reclaimed from the ravages of time, and given a new lease on life, with passion, care and architectual savoir faire, surrounded by fields and hills interspersed with olive groves, vineyards, orchards, gardens.

Adriano Bacchella is author of about thirty books; his lifestyle, interior and travel reportages are regularly published in important international magazines in Italy (such as Case & Country, Case da Abitare, Case & Stili, Gioia, Grazia, In Viaggio, Io Donna, Marco Polo, Panorama Travel, Ville & Casali, Ville Giardini, Weekend) and abroad (Elle Decor Russia/Germany/Greece, AD Usa, Côté Sud, Schöner Wohnen, Geo France/Germany/Corea, Figaro Magazine). By the same author for the publisher AdArte, Case di Torino (2007), Masserie. Hospitality in the charming farmhouses of Apulia (sold out, 2009), Divino Abitare.
