This place is so tranquil, surrounded and nourished by all that Epicurus would have taught and sought to attain the good life, that it makes one wonder why the expression goes "living like a king in France". I can't see how this superbly located place can be topped by another. May be also especially so because of the great service provided by
Paolo and his family, who all (of which some at respectable age) put their heart in making this place one where we found ourselves feel at a new home right away; private, but shared like one does with friends. The apartments are beautifully furnished, and moreover; spik and span clean. Everything clearly taken care of whith eye for detail.
The hill top at which Il Casalone is resting, provides one of the most magnificent views over the region. And from here, we looked out over the valley with its nearby lakes. Although I had intentions to learn some Italian, it helped a lot that Paolo speaks English :) And anyway, all the additional information provided for visitors of the region (places of interest, practical services, historic information) are translated in English too.
I can only recommend this place; the price:quality ratio is the way we like it. We'll come back! Thanks again for the homelike stay: it was not just a holiday but a real stay.
