it is a farm rev 2.0, really cool.
the location is great. nice styling of the premises. the food at the store in the facility is amazing: in-house made cheeses, yogurts, gelato, meats. awesome. the room bucaneve was very nice. amazing trail nearby, miles long. lots of farm animals to look at up close.
however, since the facility is eco-green these are the inconveniences:
in mid july the days and evenings were very hot, but the temp of the room cannot be controlled via AC. the temp is set for the hotel through some sort of self-regulating eco-green system at 25 C (77 F) and the room itself recorded 27.2 C (81 F) which is steaming.
if you open the windows, which thank goodness have nets against bugs - you do smell the cow dung big time.
furthermore, the shower is quite freezing, since the water temp is also eco-green regulated by some sort of system.
so this eco-green thing is really inconvenient, at least the way they set it up.
and lastly, the staff - three different people - the night shift kid and two ladies the first and last day at check in and check out, were very, very unfriendly.

The hotel is not in the main town of Sondrio but outside and up the mountains but is a lovely hotel with a superb restaurant and well worth staying - the evening meal was fantastic in a lovely setting outside. Breakfast was quite basic but fine.
