Casa Romana






I love staying at a fabulous hotel and I especially love great room service. However, after our week at Casa Romana, I have been converted to the world of self-catering. Certainly I will continue to seek out and relish short stays at wonderful and unique hotels, but for long term holidays I now want to live like a local in a foreign country, not as a mere visitor.

One huge advantage is the space to spread out (especially if traveling as a family). It was so great to waking in the morning at my leisure, making my own coffee and lounging by the pool with guidebooks. Then there was the cheerful smile from the lady at the bakery who came to understand my broken Spanish and knew exactly what I wished to order every morning. Late each afternoon I would escape to the rooftop terrace to listen to the bells ringing in the nearby cathedral. If you have the opportunity to stay in a fabulous villa or apartment while away I highly recommend it!

We are talking of visiting the south of France or Spain in the upcoming months. I will check out your links. It can be a good idea to stay a while at the same location.
Casa Romana has lots of charms.
