Just returned from my 4th visit to this special place. Two friends and I go whenever I am in Umbria and this trip was no different. It was freezing cold and raining for several days but we didn't want to give up our visit. We confirmed by telephone and drove through the Umbrian hills into the mountains and up to the Casale, located just above Norcia. As Norcia was within the earthquake zone struck so violently not long ago, we weren't sure what we'd find, tho Ernesto, the owner, had assured us by phone that there was minimal damage in the town and they hadn't suffered damages, due to their careful renovations a few years ago. Upon arrival, we checked in, were pleased to find the room already well-heated, and went in to dinner, only to discover we were the only guests. All the staff was at our disposal and dinner was, as always, delicious, creative and beautifully presented. More wine? An extra blanket? There was always someone ready to assure our comfort. At breakfast, they laid out the delicious array of local specialties, with fresh ricotta arriving from the nearby sheep farm, still warm. Again, we were the only guests. We were continually struck by their committment to our stay with them. Will return with pleasure next year!
