If you want to stay in Italy for relaxing, This hotel would be perfect! The complete relaxing hotel of stays! There are beautiful natures, cleaned rooms, Italian dinner and breakfast, and quiet lounge. Also, They have a luxuary bar. In winter time, You can enjoy skiing,too.

Dear Italianoyakodon,

thank You so much for Your kind words. It's such a big pleasure to receive this class of review especially when its written by a guest who came here just to run away from the hot weather of the city and who didn't expect nothing from the stay in a little mountain's town.

So We are very happy and proud You enjoy Your stay here and We wait for You in Italy again soon and of course in Rocca di Mezzo. And as You said, maybe next time You could come to visit Your new friends in Hotel Caldora*** during the winter. I'm sure You will love Your first italian "snow break"!

Thank You again, best regards and see You soon!

My husband and I went to Rome for the canonization Of Pope John Paul II, and decided to take a few days after to relax in the fresh air of the mountains. We were recommended the Hotel Caldora and we found a gem! Beautiful location, breathtaking views, fresh air, incredible attention to detail and welcoming by the Owner Lorenzo, and the food was superb!
