Recent Umbria reviews

  • A Perfect Retreat

    "Everything in all the other 5-star reviews is absolutely true. I almost hesitate to say how wonderful this place is, for fear there will be no vacancy when we want to go back, but Simonetta and Corrado’s cottage really is a dream come true. Spotlessly clean, beautifully situated on a hilltop with a stunning view, thoughtfully furnished, and so relaxing and comfortable that we did not want to leave. I had envisioned this as a base for day trips around Umbria and perhaps train trips to Florence and Rome, but in fact we spent much of our time right there ‘at home.’ We did take the train to Florence for one day, but even in early May it was jam-packed with hordes of (other) visitors, and we were happy to escape back to our hilltop retreat. We enjoyed some local back-road exploring as well as a visit to Orvieto. Note: if you don’t care to wait in a crowd and take the funicular up to the town, you can drive your car up and park on top. It was fun walking around the small streets and alleyways. Ask Simonetta about a tour of their family winery, Venuta Le Velette. We were fortunate to be able to join an English-language tour and tasting, conducted by Corrado’s sister Cecelia. It was a very instructive, entertaining and delicious experience. I hate to stop writing this review: it’s almost like leaving this lovely place again. But we always say “If we don’t leave, we can’t come back.”"

  • La Fontanna/ Umbria

    "My family and I spent a wonderful week in Umbria at La Fontanna. My 3 daughters and husbands stayed in the main house and my wife and I slept in the adjacent cottage. We bought the fresh local produce, cheeses and wine and had several enjoyable meals outside overlooking the incredible vistas. We did venture out for some short day trips like the excellent local Zanchi winery, but in general we got to know Amelia over our short week there. What a gem. The people were wonderful, helpful and friendly, despite our massacre of of their language. The local cathedrals were gorgeous and we got to know the cheese lady well with a visit there every other day. I can't think of much to say in a negative light about our stay there. If there had been functional screens on the windows we might have slept with open windows and enjoyed the cool evenings more. Aside from that one small thing, no complaints. We would go back in a heartbeat. What a beautiful place."
