Arco, a lovely place at the north of Lake Garda. In the early days famous for recovery/welness, now more for rock/freeclimbing and mountainbiking. More laid-back atmosphere than the turistplaces at the south of the lake.
Agriturismo il Castagno in Agerola, just off the Amalfi coast. Situated on mountainside with spectacular view on the Mediterranean sea. Roomy apartments, lovely owners, wine farm. Many inhabitans gather here for sunday-lunch.
