Starting a blog during holidays is probably a common thing and that is what I do.
Our family holidays have started and we decided to go to the “Lago die Garda”. With the hope for hot weather we got into the car and headed out for the south. Coming from Cologne we thought we’d reach the destination “Costermano” in roughly nine hours. Well… do not head out on Saturdays, as we needed fourteen hours in total. A nightmare with kids, but we made it. A big thank you to our kids who really pulled themselves together. They were real darlings and made the tour bearable. Over the “Brenner” and through the Alps we finally reached “Costermano”. The village has not too much to offer, but our small flat, we rented for the two weeks is located there. “La Filanda” is the place we chose as it sounded very nice in the ad form the travel agent.

We encountered a nice place with a historic atmosphere. It once was a textile company and it was redesigned to a holiday home place with restaurant and pool. They really did a nice job on the exterior and our kids love the pool. The interior is very simple and the beds should be better.

The place is definitively a good base to explore the region.
