We chose this B&B for its on-site parking, low price, and location (an easy drive to the Roman Villa). We were here in the shoulder season. This B&B is one block from a second B&B owned by the same man, Luciano. When we arrived at Cassa Rossa the host was not there, though he did arrive soon. Since only two parties were at Cassa Rossa that night, we would have our free breakfast with his other guests at the second B&B. He let us choose between rooms and then we saw him at breakfast the next morning. Breakfast was like a big family meal, passing food around and making conversation. The host (an agricultural teacher) is gregarious and friendly. On this morning he was particularly proud of the tomatoes his students had grown. The overall experience was a bit quirky but fine. We were in Luciano's world. Our bed and bath were okay, the room was bare, the vintage chairs were interesting, Roman-themed original artwork on the bedroom walls was interesting, and the moonlit view of the nearby hill town and its duomo was especially nice. Cassa Rossa Country House is probably best for self-catering groups. If we return, we will book, sleep at and eat at the host's second B&B (La Casa sulla Collina d'Oro). After another tomato, we were off to see the Roman Villa. Greatest strengths: low price and proximity to Roman Villa.

We had a very good experience staying in this home. The owner Luciano was very friendly and introduced us the home and our rooms. The rooms were clean and in very good conditions, as the rest of the house. There is also very beautiful view from our rooms. We had the breakfast in another property close by, and we were picked up by a lady in the morning, and the breakfast was in original Italian style.

The host, Luciano, owns 2 properties: La Casa Rossa Country House, for which we booked, and nearby La Casa sulla Collina d'Oro, which used to be owned by his mother. Luciano is extremely friendly and gregarious even though he does not speak English very well. He runs his B&B with his cheerful wife and a young German-speaking helper. When we arrived at La Casa Rossa, we found it locked. But there was a sign on the door with Luciano's name and phone number on it. I called and he answered, telling me he would be there in 2 minutes. His helper drove up shortly and asked us to follow her to the other property, which was just around the corner on the next street over. Once there, Luciano explained that he was doing some maintenance to La Casa Rossa during the off season when not many guests came to visit. We would be staying at La Casa sulla Collina d'Oro, instead. It was a large, older house with a great panoramic view in the back, where the breakfast room and balcony were. It was a chilly day and a crackling fire was burning nicely in the fireplace in the living room. Even before we were shown to our room, Luciano offered us coffee and wine. What hospitality! We enjoyed our espresso and wine sitting on comfortable couch and listening to Italian music while looking at the cathedral on the opposite hill glowing in the late-afternoon sun. Luciano made some excellent restaurant recommendations for dinner. The room was adequate in size with a large bath. The shower stall was the usual tiny square affair, about 65cm on each side. There was plenty of hot water for shower, though. Breakfast was very good and served in a communal style around a huge table. Although the weather was not the best during our visit, we had an excellent stay nevertheless. I would definitely recommend this place.

I was hesitant based on a prior review. But I took a chance and it paid off. The owner and his wife are super friendly (I stayed at the "older" residence). They gave great recommendations and patiently answered all questions including a history of the place. The breakfast was good and room was very big and clean. Very happy with this stay.

I arrived at the property around 20:30 no one was at the property the place looked deserted but the front door was open. I entered and looked around for someone and shouted 'Hello' to let anyone know there no answer. I went back outside and noticed 2 names & phone numbers on a sheet of paper stuck to the front door. I surmised that I should call them which I did. A man answered and told me he was Luciano the owner and went on to inform me that he was at his other property and that my room would be there and that he would be down to meet me in a minute, Approx 5 minutes later he turned up and told me that I should go to his other property, no reason was given to me as to why I should go to the other property. It was obvious that the decision to move me was not made that day and I asked why he did not make an effort to contact me and let me know that I would not be staying in he property I booked. He replied that he was sorry but he didn't understand my question as his English was not that good. I made it clear that If I wasn't going to stay in the property that I booked I would be leaving. He was not particularly happy about this but eventually showed me 2 rooms that I could use. I decided I would stay and picked one. He then told me that I must go to the other property for breakfast and to pay the bill and that he had already moved one guest to the other property. He then told me that and told me that the key to my room was in the door to my room and If I wanted to go out getting back into the building would not be a problem as the front door was always left unlocked. He then told me that he was returning to the other property and left. When I returned to my I noticed it room it was very cold presumably because the heating had not been turned on as they were not expecting anyone to stay there. I proceeded to settle into my room Then after about 10 minutes of complete silence I heard voices and It was clear that some people had entered the property and this made me somewhat uncomfortable as I was assuming I would be the only person in the property. I made sure I locked my door. The voices continued for a few hours and then there was silence again and I finally felt safe enough to go to sleep. Luckily there was enough bedding to keep me warm. I was awoken at 6:00 am to the sound of banging reverberating through the stone and tiled property after some investigating It appeared that the wind had picked up and something perhaps on the roof was being blown around and was hitting the structure of the building. I tried to get some more sleep but was unable to for an hour or so until I decided to put on headphones to block out the noise. I finally got a couple more hours of sleep. When I rose I went to the other property to pay my bill. I skipped breakfast because I did not feel comfortable about staying any longer and wanted to get as far from the place as quickly as possible.

We have been in Italy and Sicily for 5 weeks now, stayed in many different hotels, bnbs, and pensione. This one sure was the winner of all. Friendly like family. The owner, his friends (staff), and Tonya (?) are all genuinely friendly people. We got quite lost outside Piazza Armerina because of the Garmin gps and the phone wasn't working. For an hour, we drove around and around the countryside and couldn't find the bnb. We were helped by 2-3 different parties who couldn't speak English and we couldnt speak a word of Italian. People in this town are just blessed with God given kindness. They literally guided us to the bnb on their scooters. Where on earth you can find people like that? A thousand thanks to those strangers who helped us!! So, upon arrival, we were hot, tired, hungry, and frustrated. However, the friendliness of the host, the spacious room, the panaromic view, and much more did make it all worthwhile . The room was very comfortable, clean, and quiet. All the rooms are upstairs. There was a huge living room downstairs with TV, couches, sofas, and terrace. The kitchen was stocked with water, coke, and wine. We asked about the water, the host said everything in the fridge is for our to use, he said "my house is your house". We only stayed for one night so we only used the water. The breakfast was something else. An array of prosciutto, ham, sausage, cheese, bread, and popping hot croissants - plain, chocolate filled, apricot filled. The bread was also fresh. Freshly brewed (individually for you) coffee, you can also asked for cappuccino if you wish. I am usually not a breakfast person, but I sure filled up myself. I just couldn't resist all the freshly made food. On top of this, we were having breakfast facing the panaromic view of the whole town on a hill. I sure wished I could stay longer, may be next time. Thank you for your hospitality!

This is a modern building and the sister B&B to La Casa sulla Collina del Oro; same owners/management and a couple of hundred metres apart. The construction is similar to most modern Mediterranean buildings with tiled floors which can be very echoey and although I expected this I still found it a bit much as there are factors beyond the hotel's control; local dogs that yap and bark, cockerels that crow before dawn and other guests clattering and chattering as they come in in the wee small hours that disturb the peace of the night. However, if you're not a very light sleeper then there are redeeming features: The view of the Duomo from the rooms at the rear is fabulous, the rooms are large enough and the bathrooms clean and fully functional. Beds were comfortable and bedding warm against the mountain air. We visited in mid-April, still in low season and breakfast was ample around the enormous 'family table' at the sister property. We felt this B&B offered fair value for money and a convenient location, just off the Piazza Armerina Sud junction of Stada Stradale 117 bis, it is in a residential neighbourhood and I was very glad I had printed out the Google Map at large scale or we'd never have found it. Once you have found it it takes 2 minutes to access the main road and be on your way for the day. There is also a large 'Deco' supermarket and an Agip petrol/gas station at the highway junction too, which we found useful.
