Reviewed 7 June 2015

The Corte de Frara could be a very nice place to stay, with modern styled apartments, pleasing communal areas and a small outside pool, and the photos certainly give you this impression.

However, the walls are paper thin, so despite shutting the doors and windows, the traffic in the road outside and a mouse farting in the next room are still heard. I would have been happy with the occasional mouse fart compared to what I endured.

It appears that a number of rooms have been given over to the local commune for “social housing” as there was a number of families in what appeared to be long term residence. There were probably eight to ten children of preschool age who happily played all day, loudly, bouncing balls and squealing or crying incessantly from 10:00 to 22:00, and appeared to be mostly unsupervised by their parents. Add in the usual mixture of chickens, barking dogs and church bells associated with rural Italy and what could be a secluded and stylish retreat was actually a constant barrage of noise. (oh, did I mention the building works on-site too?)

No bar or restaurant, as they are self-catering apartments. And to top it all, my room stunk like and ash-tray. (not pleasant for a non-smoker) Also, my room was not serviced at any time during my 4 day stay. I contemplated booking out on several occasions. On the day I did leave, thinking I had until noon, the cleaner was knocking on my door at 09:30!

I so wanted to like this place but found it impossible to work or relax. Unlikely I would recommend it or stay here again.

I would urge the owners, who seemed very nice people, to visit the Joia Apartments in Brusaporto near Bergamo, to see how to do it right, as currently the Corte de Frara is not so.

Room Tip: Go somewhere else !
