Could this be time to book a long romantic weekend in Castiglione del Lago? Casa Leone Italy is open throughout the year, with plenty of warm quilts and heating for the winter months. Why not try visiting the centre of Italy before most tourists get here during the summer months? This weekend, there is a special wine tasting festival in Montepulciano, where the Vino Nobile is made and where the underground cantinas predate the Romans. A beautiful 20 minute drive away.
