Locanda di Doris

Imagine an old tumble-down stone barn near Todi in Umbria, Italy. Imagine it fully rebuilt, stylishly furnished and waiting for you to come visit. Two suites, "Love" and "Passion", private garden, pool, olive grove, slow tourism. Locanda di Doris is the beautiful B&B created by Doris Sochaczewski and Valentino Fialdini. She’s Brazilian with European soul and he’s half Italian half Brazilian. Both are artists, stylists, food and wine lovers and trend watchers. No wonder the inn is so fabulous. I'm ready to book my flight. Trouble is I don't think I'd want to leave.

Hihi, at first sight, I thought it is our stonehouse in Piedmont, from outside. You can have a look here:
Our garden is not yet finished, but we will also make a garden with pebble stones, grasses, lavendula, figues etc...

Sad that they whitewashed the wood ceilings - leaving them natural would provide much needed warmth.

I love white washed wood, and I especially love the lightsaber bed lamps!

I don't think I could leave either, Jo.
They might as well cancel all future reservations because I'm taking the other suite!

The chair in pics 4 & 6 gives new meaning to "chair porn"!
