“Standing at 2000′ on a rocky outcrop overlooking the Comino Valley, Casa Bella Vista is a 17C farmhouse which has been lovingly and tastefully restored and refurbished by Carol and Alan. The location is peaceful and the views are panoramic – a pastoral scene of cultivated fields, olive groves, vines, dotted with farmhouses, and surrounded by undulating wooded hills; and the sunsets are stunning. The small towns and hill villages roundabout are a delight, especially on busy market days. Essentials can also be purchased at friendly butchers, bakers and delicatessens a short drive away. Excursions to San Donato, Pescaserolli, Opi and the Abbey at Monte Casino are recommended.
The owners have a list of the best shops and restaurants offering delicious food at reasonable prices, and lists of opening times and market days in the surrounding villages. The apartment is spacious, very well equipped and comfortable, and our welcome from the Italian housekeeper was friendly and helpful. We had a taste of rural Italian life and we left wanting more. Arrivederci!”
Owner’s Response: Hello Happy Wanderers – Wales UK. I am sure your comments will be most useful to other guests, as you have given a very helpful description of the Casa and its facilities, the mountains and the surrounding area. Thank you for taking the time to write such an interesting review and of course you are most welcome back to Casa Bella Vista at any time. We are pleased that you enjoyed your “taste of Italian rural life” and delighted that you “left wanting more”. Do return for ‘more’ very soon. Kind regards, Alan and Carole.
