Comments from our guests

  • “Relaxing home away from home” We stayed for 2 weeks after extensive travel around Italy & Cherry House B&B felt like being home. Win & David are great hosts who give you freedom to do as you please or enjoy pleasant conversation, great home style cooking & sight seeing. Polinago has all the commodities but the highlight is great restaurants in the area you would never find yourself. Go to Brutto's for pizza on a hill top & Barroni in Gombola for the best lasagne in the world!!! Visit the old mill in Gombola and the castle, chestnut forests, Modena for shopping, more restaurants and sightseeing. Highly recommend staying with Win and David, they are perfect hosts.

  • “Relaxed, enjoyable experience” We stayed for about a week and enjoyed a great combination of relaxation, local tours, great food and drink and good company. Win and David put a lot of thought into what each guest might like to see or do and tailored the stay accordingly.

  • “Heaven on a Stick” Cherry House has been our home for 4 weeks. We arrived in need of rest, peace and quiet. We found gentle encouragement, great food and an open hearted sharing of the delights of rural Italy. As our energy returned Winifred and David crafted our days to include a short stay in the nearby mountains so we could trek easily and explore the local villages. We came home to Cherry House elated with our side adventure. While planning our return in July Winnie found, arranged and booked a week for us in a mountain health resort that is a dream come true. Polinago is 'heaven on a stick' because Winnie and David have embraced the community and the locals have returned the complement. Language support is brilliant and laughter abounds.
    Room Tip: All the rooms are fabulous offering different views and easy access to bathrooms and kitchen.

  • “Cherry House - the pick of the crop?” What a wonderful week's stay, and an immersion in the local culture, food, wine, and people of the area. Win and David were terrific hosts and our experience of the Modena area has been enriched because of their attention to detail in ensuring our stay was so memorable. We went to local festivities, we met both Italian and English-speaking people living in and around Polinago, we visited local farms and dairies, and the working mill at Gombola. Best of all, we sampled some of the local produce such as gnocco fritto and nocino. On our last day, Win and David took us on some lovely roads to view the scenery throughout the Apuan mountains and dropped us off at La Spezia for the next part of our holiday. A stay we will never forget!
    Room Tip: The rooms at Cherry House are very spacious and clean.

  • “You must stay here, experience the true heart and soul of Italy”This was our second visit to Cherry House, the first being in August 2013. The hosts, Win and Dave (an Australian couple) have become an integral part of the community and because of this can offer a unique experience through their local knowledge and amazing list of contacts.
    One has the choice of doing one's own thing or Win and Dave can act as tour guides for both local and more distant excursions. I would highly recommend using this service as one receives the benefit of being withpeople who know their way around and who know the locals.
    There are so many places to see and things to do, abundant, stunning scenery, go to Maranello and drive a Ferrari, Modena for sightseeing and shopping, local businesses such as the cheese factory and sample delicious, still warm Ricotta, not to mention some wonderful restaurants.
    The accommodation is extremely comfortable and spacious, breakfasts simply delicious with lots of fresh local produce. Win and Dave can even provide pick up and drop off from nearby train stations and or airportsif required.
    We've been to Italy numerous times, we know our way around and will return some time in the next couple of years. For certain, on our next trip, we will enjoy another stay at Cherry House and recommend you do also.

  • “Italian "country village", just what we wanted!”Upon the advice of a friend (who owns property nearby in this region) we booked a four night stay at Cherry House and were thoroughly delighted with all it delivered. Win and David greeted us at the railway platform in Bologna and before heading for Polinago were treated to a wonderful walking tour of old Bologna.
    We had been travelling for three weeks and being at Cherry house felt like a real "home". The food was first rate, (including cooking demonstrations by Win), room very comfortable and what a delightful little village Polinago proved to be. During our stay the Giro D'Italia bike race came thru the village. The locals dressed the town up in pink bunting and balloons and it seemed the entire population came out to celebrate and witness the event. We had been told that Italians love their cycle race events and this was certainly a highlight of our stay.
    We visited a working dairy and also the cheese making factory where we witnessed Parmesan cheese being produced. The scenery of the area is amazingly beautiful and we very much enjoyed being expertly driven around the area by David with Win filling us in on the history of side of things. The local butcher even gave us a personal tour of their cool room and a free portion of their pork mince, thanks to Win being the wonderful go between host. This place is off the beaten tourist track but if one wants to see and experience authentic Italian locals and culture, then a stay at Cherry House is highly recommended.
