This is the country house I have always dreamed about. The garden is beautiful and itself worth a visit, especially in May or June. You can tell Guido, the owner, loves the place and tends it like a doting parent (and just as proud: he will be happy to show you his wonderful climbing roses). The main building is a real haven, especially if you arrive in the evening after a hot day spent visiting Rome or Viterbo: exquisitely designed, decorated with taste, full of beautiful objects brought back by the owners from their trips to Asia and the Americas, cool and shady, it's really hard to leave it for visiting the surroundings and in my opinion the best way to enjoy it is just sit back and relax, reading and walking around. The pool, also beautifully designed by Guido's wife, Costanza, is a bonus. Since it's not far from Rome (less than an hour's drive), every once in a while I decide to indulge myself and spend the weekend there. It's worth every penny!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- If you'd like a totally peaceful, relaxing holiday, spent in the natural surroundings of a 3.5-hectare (8.5-acre) park with a pool surrounded by olive trees for refreshing dips, CasaCocò is the place for you. Breakfasts include homemade baked goods, seasonal fruit, yogurt, coffee, tea, milk, jams, and freshly baked bread. Lunches and dinners can be prepared on request, with menus to be agreed upon. The two double bedrooms of the Country House, the Green Room and Red Room, have private bathrooms. They are quiet, set apart, and with independent entrances, ideal for a peaceful night's sleep and lovely morning breakfast with homemade baked goods under an arbour. Then there is Salacocò, designed using the most modern bio-architectural criteria: its two bedrooms, the West Room and East Room, are ideal for families or groups of friends. They both have television, minibar, air conditioning, and private bathroom with shower, and each can sleep up to six guests. ... more less
