  • Would Visit again in a heartbeat.

    "My wife and two lady friends spent a week in this lovely home. From our first contact with the manager, Katia, we had all arrangements taken care of with the finest details. The home is comfortable, spacious, nicely decorated, and has amazing views from the top terrace. The kitchen was very well equipped and had everything to prepare a lovely dinner. If you prefer, dining out is just steps away from your front door. The home was warm, welcoming, quiet and charming. If you need ANYTHING for your stay, just call or ask Katia. The WiFi was excellent. I would love to live in this village!!!!"

  • 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."

  • Wonderful Villa in Umbria

    "Spent a week here this Summer, the Villa is as perfect as you will find, exactly like the photos, full of atmosphere and enormous charm, the owners have done a great restoration. The area is full of small hillside towns and lovely local wineries, the mistake we made was doing too much running around, when just relaxing at this amazing villa was the most enjoyable experience. Use the owners recommendations for local chefs/restaurants and you will not go wrong. Highly recommended."

  • Perfect Vacation

    "We stayed here in August and the villa worked out perfectly for 9 people. There were two families with Aunts, Uncles, and cousins. The cousins ranged in age from 17 to 24 and they found plenty to keep themselves entertained for a week. There was plenty of room for all of us to gather but also space if someone wanted some quiet time alone. The beds were extremely comfortable. We really enjoyed the beautiful views, the swimming pool, the bocce court, the orchard with fresh fruit, and the fresh vegetables/herbs from the garden. The family that owned the winery next door was extremely friendly and even took us on a tour of the winery and conducted a private tasting at no charge. The owner of the villa, Anna, was always available and helpful whenever needed. The town of Castiglione was only about a 5 minute drive from the villa and had really great shops, an old castle to tour, wonderful restaurants, etc. We went to Pisa and Florence during our trip but actually had more fun at the local places. Everyone in our party cried when we had to leave. The house is rustic but that is also part of its charm. I would highly recommend this villa."
