Castello La Leccia was our first stop after landing in Rome in early September 2012. Upon arriving we were pleasantly greeted by Alice, a porter handled our luggage, and we were shown to our gorgeous Suite #1. The room, the bed, the sitting room, and the wardrobe room were all amazing. Arriving in the late afternoon, the sun was reflecting off the vineyards below our window and the soft sound of the fountain outside could be heard. This was undeniably the best residence we've ever stayed in. The next morning the sun rose over the hill directly into our window -- we kept the windows open all night and a just perfectly cool breeze kept us refreshed. The accommodations are topped off by expert service at the restaurant and especially Giuseppe (who is the owner and vintner, Francesco's, brother). We had two superb meals -- the first we let Giuseppe choose all of the food considering he knows it best, and it was fabulous. The wine served was their in-house 2008 Riserva -- a spectacular choice. We stayed two nights and upon leaving Monday morning Francesco took personal time out to greet us and take our pictures and tell us the story of his family and how he resurrected the Castello. I cannot say enough good things about Castello La Leccia -- we would stay an entire two weeks if we could. It's definitely a retreat -- if you want to come and relax and enjoy the sounds of the countryside, watch the beauty of an afternoon thunderstorm pass through and cool down the fields, and just spend time with someone you love or alone, I can imagine few other places as perfect as Castello La Leccia.
