Much ado about something...

Loved it! The perfect quiet, private, country getaway. We stayed in an apartment in the Casolese. The apartment had a separate large bedroom, and a loft with a single bed.

The apartment was spotless, and tastefully furnished. There was a small kitchenette, and a dining and living area. Every window had a stunning view, with roll up screens (good for picture taking) and wooden shutters. Amenities included bathrobes, slippers, complimentary wine in the commons area daily, and 24 hour coffee. There is also a reading/TV area (nice for early risers) in the building.

We had the full wine tasting, which included a delicious lunch: bruschetta, salami, cheeses, risotto, pastas, and more. Our two year old loved the children's play area, there was a teeter-totter, and a playhouse full of toys.

It is a secure gated property; when you check in you are given keys to the gate, your building, and your apartment. Only one (almost) complaint would be the height of the chairs in the living area, fine for me, but too short for my husband (6-7). The staff strives to ensure you enjoy your stay; just ask and you will receive. The rate was 210.00 euros per night, and 35.00 euros per person for the wine tasting.
