BIG SUR Perchè?
Abbiamo scelto di chiamare il nostro B&B con questo nome per 3 motivi:
- the area in which it is found is also “Val di Sur” (letteralmente “valle di sopra” rispetto alla fascia lago sottostante);
- “GARDA BIG SUR” è il nome della Scuola di volo da tanti anni che il nostro utilizza prato e la nostra collina per la propria attività. The medesima riprende he nome della località sita in California (USA) famosa has livello internazionale per pratica degli sports aerei;
- Tullio my father received a postcard from Ignatius and Teresa, Instructors of the flight school, from Big Sur in California where they were to fly in one of their many trips.
