Just returned from a 3 night stay @ casina papaveri......wanted to say something great, and I certainly can.....but I would be repeating what most people have written! Unbelievable location, really beautiful ...... cannot even begin to describe how clean and beautiful the place is. John and Robyn were wonderful hosts! Felt like we were in the home of the absolute best hosts I have ever stayed! I could easily and happily see myself staying there again, with pilates group, or with my husband and other friends where women could do their pilates trip and men could go visiting towns nearby to learn more about this fabulous part of Italy. We loved it. We felt so comfortable there. The "culinary" experience is so much fun with Chef Gino, I can't wait to try some of the things he taught us. It is a fabulous place. Couldn't recommend it more. I would give it a "beyond excellent" rating if I could.
