Guestbook comments from the owner

Caicresce is superb. We were a group of three families with young children spending a week there in early July. The house is beautifully appointed inside and the grounds are spacious. It's a beautiful area to go out and explore, so many wonderful hilltop villages, or just admire the view from the pool lounge chair! We visited the best ice-cream parlour in Italy too (several times!)

Amazing home

  • 5 of 5

We had a great family holiday here and thought that the house was so well equipped. The views were fabulous, the beds comfortable and the sun shone! Couldn't have asked for anything more! Local restaurants were all excellent - thanks for all of your recommendations. We will definitely be back.
