“Italian Adventure”

We’ve just returned from this most wonderful place. An authentic Casale in beautiful Italian countryside – surrounded by lush olive groves – but with a very luxurious feel. A perfect base for our first Italian adventure. The owners have thought of everything and the attention to detail is second to none. The bedrooms are beautiful and we had a lovely big terrace with far reaching views over the olive groves and mountains and the pool / garden areas. We had our own fridge, tea/coffee fresh milk, tailormade drinks selection (at realistic prices), ironing facilities and even British adapters.
The owners – Joe and Alana are so friendly and we feel we’ve left them as friends. We enjoyed a car for a few days but if you don’t want to drive – Joe offers tailored private tours – Joe is enthusiastic and so knowledgeable about the local area and Rome. (We had a full tour of Rome with him which was fantastic). He also offers private airport transfers – the Casale is about 40 mins from Rome Ciampino Airport. We loved exploring the small ancient towns surrounding – like Antique Fuiggi and Fimone. We also drove to the coast one day and enjoyed the bustling beaches and freshly caught seafood. Our favourite was Spilonga – just heavenly.
One of the best parts of the holiday – had to be the food. But not necessarily out and about. Alana and Joe employ the talents of 4 lovely local ladies who tempted and delighted us with their wonderful rustic fair. We had undoubtedly the best pasta dishes we have ever tasted. Every meal seemed to surpass the previous and Rick Stein should seriously go there on his next Italian Odyssey.
The outdoor spaces are superb – the pool is lovely and the quality of the sun loungers is extremely high. They are also planning on an outside bar area and further intimate seating areas . The main areas of the Casale are decorated to a high standard and there’s always space for privacy and quiet time. There’s a nicely stocked honesty bar which we though was a nice touch – but likewise Alana and Joe are happy to serve you.
Joe and Alana are so welcoming, attentive and professional.This has truly been a perfect holiday with a blend of culture, adventure, relaxation, lots of gorgeous sunshine and scrummy food/wine. I should also say that we shared this holiday with our two teenage boys who equally enjoyed it. Of course the pool is a big pull but there’s also a big library of books, games and dvd’s. They liked the hammocks too.
So thank you to Joe and Alana – we’ll definitely be coming back .

We have recently returned from a visit to Casale San Pietro and although we had seen photographs, nothing can prepare you for the amazing location with incredible views across the valley. You quickly realise you are somewhere very special as soon as you enter the reception which is located in The Long Room. The whole ambiance is stylish and elegant with a beautiful mix of traditional and contemporary furnishing blended perfectly together. We found this to be the ideal retreat after a day of site -seeing: peace, tranquility and a glass of rose worked for us!

Our room was equally beautifully furnished with a terrace to enjoy the breathtaking views. The marble bathroom was outstanding with robes, slippers and a generous supply of high quality toiletries provided.

Joe and Alana make the perfect hosts and have great knowledge of the best places to visit (including Rome which is just 50 minutes away by local train).

We would strongly recommend and can’t wait for the next time.

We had the most amazing time at Casale San Pietro. From the moment you leave the motorway you sense you are heading for something really special and you are! Casale San Pietro is surrounded by olive groves and stunning views and is easily reached.
From the moment you arrive the peace and tranquillity and the views consume you. The attention to detail and fantastic hospitality make for the perfect stay. If you want to venture out, local villages are full of character and offer lots of places to eat and drink.

So much to see and do, we had the best time ever! Jo and Alana we cannot thank you enough for making our silver Anniversary so special. We will be heading back as soon as we can!

We experienced the first Olive Harvest weekend at Casale San Pietro which was great fun. Jo and Alana are wonderful hosts and have a lovely enthusiastic team around them. The accommodation is first class and we enjoyed some delicious Italian cuisine. This was our first visit to a beautiful part of Italy and we shall definitely return to Casale San Pietro to explore more of this region.

There are times when you stumble upon something so incredible, so perfect, that you are truly torn between wanting to keep it completely to yourself or share with all you meet. That is exactly what we found with Joe and Alana at Casale San Pietro. With breathtakingly beautiful scenery, luxury accommodations, delicious food and hosts that define hospitality, I can’t imagine a more perfect place to spend a holiday. Joe and Alana graciously hosted our small destination wedding and brought our dream to life with their attention to every detail. They made our day more perfect than we could have ever hoped for. To us, Casale San Pietro is a home away from home and Joe and Alana are friends we look forward to visiting again. To us, it isn’t a question of whether we will stay there again, but how soon can we go back.

“I’ve dabbled in yoga on and off for a few years but have never really connected with it… until now… I can truly say this has been life changing. The location is beyond idyllic. The yoga has been amazing and the weather is perfect.
We are a group of people who have come together for a yoga retreat and will leave as friends and will return again and again. I look forward to sharing the journey with them all. Ideas have been born and I will leave Casale San Pietro feeling lighter in mind and with a clear path. This is all down to Nina, Joe and Alana. Thank You. Namaste.” Sam

“Yoga with a view – having been on a few retreats I would describe this one as amazing! I feel so relaxed and de-stressed with new friendships and I can’t wait to come back. Gem of a place, amazing food, great company and made to feel really at home. The attention to detail on everything has been outstanding!”. Lou Mr. WordPress

You have taken a lovely spot and turned it into a best-in-class experience. Everything deserves the phrase: from the lovely rooms, gorgeous beds and linen, perfect pool, delicious meals and surprising local influences. All of this is exceptional in its own right but the element of the experience that can never be replicated or copied by others is the extraordinary heart, soul and love that each of you give to each one of your guests. I have never felt so special and cared-for at any establishment. Well done! Your authenticity and delight in exceptional service are so wonderful and rare. Meg and Mick – LondonMr. WordPress
