  • The Perfect Escape

    "We just returned from 10 days at "Domus Gratia"--a house I can only describe as perfect in every way. The setting is remarkable--atop a high hill overlooking a national park with long views in almost every direction. (Talk about sunsets!) The enclosed property is equally remarkable--beautifully landscaped with trees, perennials, annuals and flowering shrubs, and filled with quiet areas for reading or exploring. And the main house? Four large en suite bedrooms, a huge kitchen (with a stand-out stove), two extremely comfortable living rooms and a huge dining room. (There are also three outside dining areas with tables and chairs.) The bedrooms and common areas couldn't be more inviting or appealing. Add the irresistible swimming pool on the property and the top-rate staff and you have all the makings of a great vacation. We certainly did, and will definitely return!"

  • Unbelievably beautiful - Amazing family vacation

    "This is what is must be like to summer at an old family place at the top of a Tuscan hill town. The views were spectacular from all sides of property. The place is even more beautiful that in the pictures. Angelo and Martina were wonderful hosts. Don't miss using the pizza oven -worth the euros to have Angelo spend 3-4 hours firing it up (a hot and messy job!). We found pizza dough at the larger grocery store near the train station - it's sold in long rolls in the refrigerated section, not the dough balls I was expecting. We had absolutely everything we needed either at the villa or within walking distance - including the oft-mentioned gelateria at the end of the drive. Cappuccino bar is just a little further up the main road on the left. Another don't-miss is the walk through town to the 180 degree overlook. There's not much in town itself (no touristy shopping for example) but it's unbelievably picturesque. A few notes/recommendations: This property is so charming and truly ancient in some parts. However, the inherent unevenness of steps/flooring and frequent level changes in the house made it a little treacherous for those with mobility issues, especially in the middle of the night. Not a criticism, just a note for those who might need to worry about that. The beds are hard. There's no way around it. I should be used to the Italian standard mattress by now but....ouch. No way to avoid a car rental. The drive down the hill to either the A1 or the train station is about 15 minutes and not walkable. We found that there was more variety and frequency of trains if we drove to Orvieto train station - about 20 minutes away. Orvieto should be a required stop regardless for anyone visiting this part of Italy. One of the most spectacular towns in Europe."

  • A fairytale come true!

    "We were an extended family visiting Spoleto for 5 days. From the moment we made our reservation Michael was extremely helpful and knowledgable about the area. We arrived late in the day on Saturday and were welcomed as friends. The property, home, and views were amazing. Everyday we awoke we thought we were in a dream. We were comfortable, had plenty of room, and enjoyed every moment. We would not hesitate to return! I agree with previous reviews. The steps to the home are steep and would not recommend it for people with difficulty walking. This may be the only drawback for a few people. Regardless, this home is in great proximity to many Umbrian towns, good food, and wonderful adventures, but you can experience the countryside by staying here. La Dolce Vita best describes our stay at fairytale house. We can not wait to return"

  • Wonderful Vacation Home

    "One word: Perfection. This Villa is a gem. The setting is wonderful, relaxing, and helps create the perfect vacation. We used the farm house as our home base for easy day trips to Orvieto, Rome, Florence, and Cinque Terre and absolutely loved coming back "home" to it every night. Torre San Severino is a quaint village and Bruno's market has everything for enjoying meals on the lovely patio. We sat by the pool each morning and soaked up the beautiful views. Can't wait to return."
