Wonderful location, lovely owners!

  • 5 of 5

Over the years, I've stayed in quite a few vacation rental properties in Italy, but in many ways, this was the best experience ever. Firstly, the location is just beautiful, the property is charming, the cottages are comfortable and well equipped and the pool is beautiful. The owners Helene and Claudio are delightful. They live on the property which initially I was a little wary of, but they really find the perfect balance between not being intrusive but being helpful and friendly. I had told them that I was looking forward doing some Italian cooking while I was there and a couple of times during our stay we woke up to a huge bucket of produce from their gardens. They also said that I should feel free to help myself to the many herbs and fruits that grow on the property - let's just say, we ate a lot of amazing figs that week!

This spots is great for families and for couples. The cottages have enough privacy that you don't really have to deal with the other visitors unless you want to.

The only gentle caveat I would add to my review is that this isn't a great place if you have a cat allergy or just don't like them. However, if, like me, you're a cat person, the constant present of adorable, extremely friendly kitties is just an added bonus.

Il Borghetto is located in a hilly landscape just minutes from Amelia, which is among the oldest cities in Italy. The surrounding countryside offers a wonderful view of small villages and rolling hills dotted with vineyards and olive groves. The territory is rich in Amerino local foods, wines DOC and it is renowned for its olive oil. The art cities of Todi, Orvieto, Assisi and Perugia are within easy reach from Amelia. The area offers the attraction of horseback riding, hiking trails for pleasant walks in the woods, as well as' the baths. During the summer the neighboring countries come alive with initiatives such as medieval parades, processions and traditional taverns open where you can taste typical dishes at a low price.
