The Oltrepò Pavese
Villa I Due Padroni is situated in the province of Pavia, Lombardy. The southern part of this province is called Oltrepò Pavese.
"Oltre (il) Po" means literally: on the other side of the Po. The Po is the major river that dominates the large plain, the "pianura padana" of Northern Italy.
South of the Po the plain quickly turns into a hilly landscape: this area lies at the foothills of the Ligurian Alpes and the Apennines. The Oltrepo actually is the largest wine producing region of Lombardy.
Our Villa lies in an enchanting area of smooth hills covered with vineyards that offer magnificent views. Examples of these views can be found at the website of Daniele Marioli, Oltre La Foto.
A stay at our Villa invites you to:
hike and cycle in the area around the Villa
explore the hills of the Oltrepò by car,
make one-day excursions to historic cities, mountains, the great lakes or the Mediterranean.
discover the delicacies of the region with its local food and wine
The climate in this region is very favourable for these activities: from June till September it is mostly dry and sunny with temperatures that vary between 25-35 °C, as we know by our own experiences.
