I, too, was part of the group of 18 with 10 of us at Locanda and 8 at Villa Vacasio. The Cesaretti family at Locanda make you feel so welcome and almost part of their family from the beginning of your stay until the end when you don't want to leave. The atmosphere is relaxing with their grove of olive trees at the entrance (they have their oil pressed and for sale), the sheep and horses grazing in the surrounding pastures, and a lovely glass covered pool and Jacuzzi next to the farmhouse. The bedrooms, dining room and sitting room are all kept immaculately clean and rustically decorated. The multi-course dinner meals are carefully and lovingly prepared by Morena, a gourmet cook. Ricotta mousse, panzanella, baked finocchio, sautéed wild boar, and tortelli with hand-made pasta are just a few of the delicious dishes served up. Each night we could hardly wait to sample the latest offerings. The local wines, red and white, are outstanding. Everything about our stay was top-notch and couldn't have been better. The price is an excellent value compared with what you receive for it.
