A fine property in a fine location
The family maintaining the place were generally friendly and helpful, and very kind in staying up late for our delayed arrival, but there were just a few failings: we found there only one nearly finished roll of toilet paper and no dishwasher powder or tablets, and there were a few too many of the family's own personal items left around the house. These are only small things but they could so easily be put right, and at no great expense, to improve the visitor experience still further.
We enjoyed our time very much indeed both at the house and in Monte Castello di Vibio, Todi (particularly), Orvieto, Arrone (a jewel) and Perugia (where Paul Verhoeven was filming a scene for his new film, Benedetta!).
sorry for the delay in the answer.
I'm very sorry for the inconvenient of toliet paper and diswasher soap probably it was a forgetfulness of the cleaning staff, but it could simply be solved by asking the ladies who take care of the reception.
As for our home-made things, we do it specifically to allow guests to use everything: colors, paper and games for children and bocce, basketball, mats and bicycles for everyone.
I'm sorry you did not understand it.
A heavenly, secluded retreat with stunning views and beautiful gardens and pool.
We had a fantastic week here. A beautiful and elegant farmhouse, wonderfully secluded. It has views all around with a gorgeous pool set in spacious grounds. It had everything we could possibly want and more. We didn't want to leave and definitely want to return. Thank you to Vishmi and her family for looking after us so well and always being on hand for any questions we might have. Although it feels very remote and you are not overlooked, you can get into the town very quickly for shopping. Highly recommended if you want elegance, style and complete privacy.
I'm very happy that you and your family enjoied a good vacation.
Thank you for the good words for the house and I hope to have you again soon among my guests.
have a good Mid August.
The villa was absolutely beautiful, with lovely gardens, a great pool and stunning views. It is a detached location making it perfect to relax in and get away from it all. Massimiliano and his family were so friendly and accommodating, making sure we had enough food when we arrived and always being contactable for any help. All in all, a terrific stay!
thank you for the beautiful words you spent on your vacation I' very happy you could appreciate your stay.
I hope to see you and your friends again, here or in Rome.
AMAZING location, wonderful home, terrific hosts!
Our family stayed here in early July of 2013. The house exceeded our expectations ten-fold!
The Cristofaris were gracious hosts. They drove out to the house from Rome to welcome us, show us around the place, and make recommendations for places to visit during our stay. They returned a week later to say Goodbye and to offer remarkably specific directions to help us find our way back into central Rome.
The house is amazing. It looks out over a valley and offers countless different spaces to rest, relax, and visit. We dined al fresco each evening and used the wonderful swimming pool during the hot afternoons. The house has thick walls and plenty of windows so it's always comfortable inside.
We had such a wonderful time staying here and would gladly return every year if we could!
Thank you for your review, both for the home and for the hosts. We are happy to know that you spent a nice holiday in Villa del Merlino and hope to see you again.
Maximilian and his family

Un posto stupendo con dei gestori estremamente amichevoli
Bellissimo posto, ben organizzato e con arredi funzionali .Ottimo relax e posti da visitare intorno molto interessanti. La piscina è una vera piscina e non una pozza ! Vale assolutamente la pena.
