“Spotless accommodation, breathtaking scenery and lovely hosts”
Reviewed 4 September 2017 for a stay in August 2017

We cannot recommend this place highly enough - and we are quite choosy about things on holiday. Where to begin?

Sarah and Michael. We booked this place above others on the shortlist on the basis of their helpful and thoughtful communications. We received a warm welcome, helpful advice and engaging conversations - but they pitched it just right, giving us a very wide berth, and making us feel like VIPs, having the grounds and the pool to ourselves when we wanted them. Having lived there for a couple of years, Sarah and Michael were knowledgeable about lots of different places to visit as well as giving practical advice about things such as tricky road junctions.

The apartment. Spotlessly clean, tastefully fitted with quality furnishings and very well equipped.

The view. The other reason why we came here. Whichever direction you look, it is beautiful, stunning scenery. By day, mountains galore; by night 'all' the stars. If you need some rest, relaxation or therapy, the view provides what you need.

The grounds. Apparently they are a work in progress though we didn't notice. From the beautifully crafted wood piles to the swimming pool, it was perfect for our needs. Michael faithfully put the (much-needed) sunshade canopy up each morning and took it down again each evening so that we could pass happy hours reading and drinking espresso in the garden in the daytime and sit comfortably star-gazing at night.

The location. Less than three hours' drive from Napoli, and only half an hour's drive to the Adriatic (which can be seen from nearby hilltops, by the way), Casoli is a convenient location both far from busy places but near enough to get to them if you really want to. In terms of Le Farfalle itself, it is a few minutes' drive from the nearest village and its panetteria. It is also only a short drive to the nearest supermarket if - like us - you want to predominantly self-cater.

If you want to get away from it all, sit or swim in a quiet, rural location, see stunning scenery everywhere you look, and know that accommodating, thoughtful hosts are on hand if you need them, then Le Farfalle is the place to go.

“l'italia è bella”
Reviewed 27 June 2016 for a stay in June 2016

Michael and Sarah were very welcoming from the moment we arrived, catering to our every need and providing advice regarding local restaurants and places to visit.
Absolutely stunning location, with gorgeous sunset views over the mountain from your own balcony.
The apartment also acts as a great base for hill training whether you are into your running or cycling.
Will definitely be back again to this beautiful spot where you relax in the Italian sunshine and enjoy the delights of the local cuisine (and the very cheap prosecco).
Thank you Michael and Sarah.

“Great hosts, wonderful views and warm and inviting appartment”
Reviewed 18 January 2016 for a stay in January 2016

We had a big problem with our water and heating during a cold snap and needed to stay somewhere local to our house while awaiting for repairs.
A friend recommended Casa Farafalla to us as it is only a couple of miles away from our home. We met with Michael and Sarah who were able to accomodate us at very short notice and who were very warm and friendly.
The apartment itself is newly renovated and is warm and cosy, it has all mod cons and is a slice of luxury with views to die for.
I cannot say more about the hosts than that we have two new friends.
I very highly recommend this property!
