We wanted to find a spectacular place for our dear friends 40th birthday. We had flights to Rome and wanted to stay somewhere quite close but not in a hotel because we were party of 23 people. Quite accidently we found Palazzo Forani. About 30 e-mails later with Deirdre arranging accomodation, cooking classes, questions about the surroundings etc. we arrived to Palazzo Forani. And what an amazing place that was!
Part of our group arrived with rented car and rest of us with train/bus. Laura and Michele met us at the gas station just outside the wall of the old town and led us to the castle. There we snacks and wine waiting for us. We really felt like being in the middle of the historical atmosphere.
Casperia in April was like summer in Finland (when it’s really warm), sunny, green and pleasant. Nice walks around the town and beautiful views where everywhere we looked. Surroundings of the castle were so verdant and well cared for.
We had a tour in the castle and it was so interesting to hear about the castle’s history. And to realize that we were actually staying in such an old place with so much history behind. All the rooms were different and authentic on their own way.
On our third night we had a party night celebrating our friend’s birthday. By Deirdre’s suggestion we took apart of this amazing theatre show around the castle by Theatre Company Maner Manush. Thank you so much, the experience was amazing!
Carla, Anna-Maria, Laura and Michele also enchanted us an unforgettable evening with delicious dinner. They were actually part of our party, and we had so much fun!
Next day we had a cooking class with Anna Maria and we made traditional pasta (can’t remember the name… string.. something? ) Only half of us participated but all of us got the pleasure to enjoy the result. Anna Maria had also done the delicious sauce with the pasta. It was so good and we ate it all!
We can’t even put it on to words how well everything was arranged and how welcomed we felt. Forani family is so helpful and really want to make your visit unforgettable. And that’s what it really was for us! Can’t thank you enough!
