expression from the moon :P
 
Hi guys,

I am revising for my cae exam and I came across this expression;

It was a wonderful landscape, the more so for being dotted with centuries-old wooden farmhouses...

Checked in different online dictionaries and each gives a different definition... Can someone tell me what the bold expression mean in this context??

Thank you in advance,

Cheers, Sondes

I īd say it īs like "even more so" , that is, it was wonderful and even more wonderful because of the farmhouses ...

It was a wonderful landscape, even more wonderful because of the beautiful farmhouses...

Synonyms: all the more, all the more so, from the stronger, more than ever, still more, with greater reason

Have you checked this dictionary 
(all) the more so because…used to give an important extra reason why something is true

Oh lynne! I should be in bed by now but I am so happy, all the more so because some nice people here welcome me back in such a nice way!!Big smile Thank you so much!
edit:I just feel like giving another example and illustrating it  with one of my pictures:

It is such a wonderful lanscape, all the more so because of the yellow dots of the broom flowering at this time of year.
