“Peace, quiet, rest and wonderful food all here!”
Reviewed September 10, 2010

I loved Il Casaletto. It's a fantastic place to retreat to after you've walked your feet off around Rome! The pool is lovely, the scenery is fantastic, and the food is exceptionally good. The family are welcoming and friendly, and will do whatever they can to help make your stay comfortable and enjoyable. There are horses, a goat and a sheep in residence (the goat and sheep are a pair of characters!) and fruit and olive trees all around. One draw back; there's quite a few flies, but you're on a farm so it's to be expected. If you're prone to mosquito bites; take a net! Even though the windows have screens, I got bitten a fair bit. The room and bathroom are clean, and my bed was incredibly comfortable; 11 hours sleep a night! It's so peaceful and relaxing. The one comment I'd make re; cleanliness; my shower cubicle could have done with a bit of a scrub around the edges, but that's the only reason it didn't get 5 marks. The rooms don't have air con, but you do get a fan. This is probably why the mozzies still come in, they hate air con!! The Italian breakfast is tasty, and you can also get lunch and dinner in the restaurant. I can highly recommend the steak...and the pasta...basically everything is delicious. The village is about a 15 minute walk. It is very small and very non-tourist-trap, so very traditional little shops. There's a fantastic cake shop, a good pharmacy, and a little spa, all on the same road; Via della Satzione. There is a larger supermarket on the way to the village, so very handy to pop and get supplies if needed. There are trains to a few local places, and Rome of course, but the timetable is not what you'd call 'over run with choice'!! Viterbo is about 25mins away. I personally didn't like it. After Rome, it was a bit of a let down, and I found the poeple to be incredibly rude unlike the Romans who were lovely. I stayed for 11 nights, and I loved every second of it. Overall, a fantastic place, lovely people, excellent food and an ideal place to switch off and relax.

We chose Il Casaletto as we thought it would be an ideal base from which to explore not only Rome, but Perugia, Orvieto, Assisi and nearby Viterbo and lake Bolsena. The location is stunning, at the top of a hill overlooking the Tiber valley. Views are breathtaking and the gardens were perfect for our little one who could run about outside. The room also suited us travelling with a baby as it comprised a bedroom and separate living room with small cooking area.

The accomodation is decent...shower rather than bath and decent size accomodation when you take into account the living room area. There was no TV in the room which was fine for us. The only negative is that the staff do not clean the room for you so you have to take your own rubbish out to the bins nearby and also replace loo roll and generally clean up yourself. You're in the countryside, so don't be shocked by the occassional flying beetle in the room either!

The restaurant at Il Casaletto is only really fully operational on weekends....during the week they will make you something but choice is limited and quality average at best so you're better off venturing out to eat during the week.

Overall a pleasant and very relaxing stay and child friendly environment with courteous and friendly staff.
