  • A Wonderful Week in Orvietto

    "My wife and I spent three months touring France and Italy this fall and our most outstanding memories are the week we spent at Le Velette. Simonetta and Corrado made us feel extremely welcome at their wonderful Wine Estate. We were welcomed by Simonetta very graciously after I had lost the fine directions she had earlier provided. She advised us to meet her at a spot we recognized where she came to lead us to the guest house. Upon arrival she gave us very clear guidance about how to use the various appliances, etc. including a wood pellet stove. At the same time we were introduced to the family dog, Ombria. Ombria and we spent a good deal of time together walking among the various vineyards on the estate. We were invited to attend a wine tasting and tour of the winery where we also learned a lot about the history of the estate and the winery. The property is very well decorated and maintained. Simonetta and Corrado were always quick to respond to questions we had and offered helpful suggestions. Our plans changed at the end of our scheduled stay, and Simonetta was very gracious in enabling us to stay an extra day. It was fortunate that our stay in Orvietto was near the conclusion of our three months, or we would have been tempted to try to stay there a good deal longer. My wife and I are trying to arrange for our children and grandchildren to join us for a stay there in 2016."

  • 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."
