Our favourite rooms
There are only seven and each has its loveable bits. We particularly admire Room Seven’s two balconies, valley views, private patio and garden-facing bath tub; Room Four’s outdoor shower; and Room Two’s private rooftop terrace. If your needs are modest, Room One’s the smallest. Four of the bedrooms are in a more modern building at the back of the existing house.
There are two: a heated pool in the hotel’s central patio and a Jacuzzi up on the roof.
There’s no spa at La Casa, but guests can access the one at the sister property nearby, Hotel Rodavento. Pilates, yoga and other fitness classes can be arranged.
Bring your quad-bike-friendly clothing and cobblestone-friendly footwear.
There are no specially adapted rooms, but the lobby, pool and restaurant are accessible for wheelchair users.
This grown-up getaway is for guests aged 18-and-over only.
