If you had a rating for 10 stars for Le Casine di Castello (II Cielo) in lovely Castelmuzio that would be my choice. Isabella and family were perfect hosts for the 12 days there. My friend and I felt like we family by the time we left! Walking through the door to our apt. we were overwhelmed seeing baskets of homegrown vegs., fruits, biscotti and bottles wine, homemade torts, fresh bread, jams, cookies, etc., on the kitchen table! The rest of the apt. was charming and quaint. From our location we took day trips in the car we rented. Isabella made a treasure trove binder of maps, descriptions and directions to all the towns in the area. The countryside and hill towns are breathtaking in the spring. Everything looks like a beautiful painting. Saw the splendor of Venice and Florence as well, but I Ieft my heart in Castelmuzio!
