The House

The House

Il Sambuco Bed & Breakfast is the ideal option for a short holiday or a relaxing stopover on a long journey, but more than that, it is a chance to savour all of the charm of an authentic Trentino mountain farmhouse.

Indoors and out, the tone is set by the tasteful recent conversion, which uses natural materials to retain the character of the original early 19th-century building and harmonise with the evocative woodland setting.

Countryside and Character

Old farm buildings meticulously converted for maximum comfort, plus authentic, natural produce and a warm family welcome: this is the simple recipe that makes Il Sambuco so unique, a special place full of character and charm, surrounded by nature.

Il Sambuco Bed & Breakfast is located on the slopes of Mount Panarotta in the eastern Lagorai Mountains. This is Trentino, one of the most picturesque regions of Italy, whose Dolomite Mountains are recognised by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site. Here, the history of the landscape is interwoven with that of its inhabitants against a backdrop of rare natural beauty.

The Elderberry

As an invisible guardian to protect the home, the elderberry plant has always been considered a symbol of good domestic spirit.

From the wood formerly used for magic wands and flutes, even today this plant gives us its qualities through its flowers, leaves and berries.

Elderberry syrup will be a refreshing note with which we will have the pleasure of welcoming you on hot summer days!


The earliest known mention of the buildings that now house Il Sambuco comes to us from 1854, when the farmstead was known as the maso Zont. At that time, it was divided into sections, with a number of different owners. These included members of the Visintainer family, who emigrated to Brazil in 1936, passing their share of the property to new owners.

Our family purchased the site in 1977, and have overseen a number of restoration projects in the intervening years involving both the interior and exterior of the buildings. We made it our permanent home in the 1990s.

A photographic tour

Photographs offer the best way to introduce you to our traditional Trentino farmhouse – or “maso” as we call it – and Il Sambuco Bed & Breakfast. Each picture, after all, can say more than a thousand words ever could about the atmosphere and character of the rooms and the natural beauty of the setting.

Here, you will find a series of suggestive images taken inside and outside the farmhouse, while clicking on this link will open a page with images and information about the rooms.
