Cascia Rodiana is a perfect place for people who enjoy peace, hiking, good food and have appreciation for old houses, interest in renovating one and respect for environment and ecological attitude. The owners make your stay excellent, they are full of knowledge and true fans of the ecological lifestyle. The rooms are great and mine had a huge fireplace area which was perfect for reading. Como is 3 hours walk away and you can get there by walking through a huge park. There are great restaurants around (ask the owners for reocmmendations) and a visit to the nearby sanctuary is a must. But of nothing else, just sit outside, drink local wine and eat local cheese and admire the view of the villages below and the snow-capped mountains in the distance. This was one of the best short-holidays I have had.
