Gran Bili is a bed and breakfast in the most genuine sense of the term. It's not a bed and breakfast that is actually a hotel or an apartment. Gran Bili is a true bed and breakfast, born as the English ancestors' homes were: children move out and the rooms remain. It offers overnight accommodation and a hearty breakfast, with kindness, familiarity, and professionalism. The large house that hosts Gran Bili is also where our family lives. Although the entrances to our apartment and the one dedicated to Gran Bili are separate, we sometimes run into each other.

As a bed and breakfast, Gran Bili is not our main business, but we have grown fond of it and take it seriously. My mother decided to become a landlady years ago, more as a hobby than anything else, when both my brother and I moved abroad. After returning to Italy and refurbishing the house, I decided to continue running Gran Bili with the same spirit and passion as my mother.

The house that hosts Gran Bili is a farmhouse dating back to the seventeenth century, inhabited by our family for generations. It is divided into three floors: on the ground floor, there are the cellars and the fireplace room. A staircase leads to the noble floor, overlooking a splendid loggia where the bed and breakfast is located, and on the third floor, the attic, an ancient barn, is where our family lives.

The house is located in the historic center of Gussago, a stone's throw from the old church of San Lorenzo, the main square, and the ancient Pieve. You enter through a large green door on Via Marconi, one of many. Once inside, you feel almost as if you were in the countryside. That's the detail that has always fascinated me about this house. You shut out the noise and the town itself, and enjoy the peace of the garden, vineyard, and orchard. From the Loggia, to the right, you can admire the profile of Mount Barbisone and, with a keen eye, you can catch a glimpse of one of the towers of the Santissima. To the left, you can see the old roofs of the town's houses and bell towers, and then up, all the way to the Stella.

Gran Bili consists of a living room, three bedrooms overlooking the corridor, and two bathrooms. The three rooms are of different types: one of the double rooms and the twin room share the same bathroom, which is located in the hallway in front of the rooms. The third room is also a double, but it has a private bathroom.

The living room is divided into a breakfast area and a sofa area where guests can watch TV or read.

The entrance to the rooms is independent from ours and is located on the loggia. The loggia is equipped with wicker armchairs and a rocking chair and is a very pleasant place to relax, read a book, chat, or simply enjoy the view, perhaps sipping a glass of wine.

Gussago is located among the hills of Franciacorta, 8 km from Brescia towards Lake Iseo. It is an ideal location for visiting both the city of Brescia and the Garda and Iseo lake areas, as well as Franciacorta. The surroundings offer countless opportunities for various leisure activities. Starting directly from Gran Bili, you can take several walks: towards/to/over Lake Iseo. In recent years, the old paths of the Resistance, used during World War II, have also been retraced. Starting directly from home, you can reach the beautiful sanctuary of the Stella by walking along a path through the vineyards that passes by the panoramic church of San Rocco. The neighboring towns of Cellatica and Rodengo are excellent starting points for itineraries within the rich Park of the Hills. A few kilometers from Gran Bili, you will find the ancient Olivetan Abbey with its splendid cloisters. In fifteen minutes, you can reach the nature reserve of the Torbiere del Sebino, with its walks among the reeds and rich birdlife. Continuing for another ten minutes, you will reach Lake Iseo and Monte Isola. Further north is the Val Camonica, the archaeological park of Capo di Ponte, and finally, the Tonale pass.

In Gussago and throughout the Franciacorta area, there are numerous wineries, many of which offer tours and tastings. There are also several wine and food itineraries and events. Speaking of food, there are numerous taverns in the area serving various typical dishes, including the prince of Brescia cuisine, Lo Spiedo, which was only available in October and November in the past, but is now served almost all year round.

For bicycle enthusiasts, there are kilometers of more or less challenging cycling routes to suit all desires and needs. We will be happy to provide our guests with all the necessary paper information material and to recommend places and itineraries in person.

Parking - Our guests have the possibility to park inside the structure, under the entrance hall. The two available parking spaces are, however, one in front of the other, so we apologize in advance for any requests to move the car.

Nearby, there are other free parking options, highlighted on the map.

TV - There is a television in the living room, in the lounge area.

Breakfast marks the beginning of the day, and we care about it a lot. We serve both sweet and savory dishes, in both cases homemade recipes made with love. Seasonal fruit, toast, homemade jams, our own-produced honey, and yogurt are always present.

We are certainly available for specific requests, to be communicated preferably at least one day before arrival: allergies, intolerances, or simple preferences.

Hey from Giuditta

Good morning everyone and nice to meet you. My name is Alice and, together with my family (mom, dad, husband, and son), we manage Gran Bili. My husband and I recently moved to Italy after living in Japan for a decade. We have taken over, expanded, and renovated the B&B that my mother had opened many years before, as a bit of a joke, after we children had moved away.

Gran Bili is not our main activity, but it is very important to us. I split my time between teaching Japanese and working as a teacher at a nursery school. My husband, who is Japanese, is a painter. Our child is too young to work, and my parents, who live in a different apartment within the Gran Bili farmhouse, also help with the management of the B&B.

Gussago is located amidst the hills of Franciacorta, which is 8 km away from Brescia, a city of art with a medieval center and ancient Roman ruins. There is an excellent bus service available in the area. The town is situated close to the Garda and Iseo lakes, which are approximately 25/30 km away. It is also at the confluence of the Trompia, Camonica valleys (which contains the archaeological site of Capodiponte) and Sabbia. Ski resorts and alpine trails can be easily accessed from this area.

We have wonderful time in Gussago! The accomodation was simply perfect. The breakfast were delicate and beautifully served. It is run by very nice and friendly people. It is located near the bus stop and bus takes you in 20 minutes to the centre of Brescia. Also not far from Lago d´Iseo, only about half an hour by car. Really loved this place!

Les propriétaires sont très accueillants, le déjeuner était au-delà de nos attentes, fruits frais etc, il est un peu difficile de se garer mais nous avons pu garer la voiture à l'intérieur de la propriété. Très bon rapport qualité-prix. Je recommande vivement.

Mi sono trovato bene alloggiando in una villa d'epoca con mobilio relativo, con un prezzo onesto. La camera in cui soggiornavo era al primo piano e sotto passa una strada non molto trafficata. C'è un parcheggio pubblico non molto distante dalla struttura, anche se l'ho scoperto da solo. Nel complesso, la struttura è consigliata per chi visita i dintorni di Brescia.

Ottima posizione, a due passi dal centro del paese. Struttura molto bella e ben tenuta, sia nelle aree comuni che in camera; inclusa nel soggiorno un'abbondante colazione con prodotti freschi fatti in casa. La gentilezza e la disponibilità di Giuditta, la padrona di casa, sono la ciliegina sulla torta. Ci tornerei a occhi chiusi!

Ci siamo trovati benissimo in questo B&B che non tradisce le origini di questa forma di accoglienza: calore umano, cordialità, scambio tra le persone. La casa è proprio uno spaccato di una vecchia struttura rurale con tanto di cantina con le botti, cortile, loggiato dove svolgere un tempo numerosi lavori rurali. La vista è molto bella, sia la mattina che al tramonto. La colazione è stata molto ben curata, tutti i prodotti erano genuini e alcuni erano autoprodotti (torta, frutta, marmellata).

La descrizione riportata sul sito è perfettamente lineare a quanto ho trovato. È un B&B dove sei a stretto contatto con la proprietà. Gentilezza e cortesia la fanno da padrone nonché piccole attenzioni che i proprietari pongono ai clienti. La colazione con l'uovo all'inglese non l'avevo mai trovata. A chi ama correre suggerisco di portarsi le scarpe da running, aria fresca e percorsi tracciati (e non) sono una vera goduria per il fisico.

I gestori sono persone gentilissime, la cura nell'accoglienza la definirei perfetta, tutto immerso in una semplicità unica, si dorme in modo stupendo, in camera un piccolo servizio per scaldare l'acqua e prepararsi da se una bevanda calda dimostra una finezza e ricerca dei particolari unica, la colazione con le marmellate fatta in casa superlativa, anche il semplice caffè fatto con una moka ben datata è gradevole, la bellezza dell'affaccio dal porticato sul vigneto, superba, tranquillità, gentilezza e serenità nel comportamento dei padroni di casa completano un piacevolissimo soggiorno, il prezzo assolutamente onesto, poi nella fretta mi sono dimenticato di ridare le chiavi che ho inviato al B&B due giorni dopo quando sono tornato a casa ed ho ricevuto in cambio una bella cartolina con i loro ringraziamenti, non ha prezzo!
