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.
