Feel Like Italian Royalty
We had a dream stay, communication ahead of time was great and once we got there, Nico took great care of us, attending to every need. The house is huge and so well appointed. It’s an historic villa with beautiful antique furnishings and high end finishes. Every room is a master which makes it a great spot for families. The town is sweet and centrally located for day trips.
Beautiful manor, awe-inspiring views, welcoming hosts, quiet town
We had such a wonderful stay, renting out the entire manor for a family trip. While we could have spent most of the trip there just enjoying the beauty of this home, we ventured around the Umbrian countryside visiting all the small and large towns around Paciano.
The town itself is almost eerily quiet, but the restaurants are wonderful and welcoming. The nearby town of Panicale is a great stop if you want a very short drive or medium hike (about 2 miles over winding, steep roads). We also enjoyed a wonderful day at the cooking school Fontanaro just outside of town, expensive but very memorable.
The town is a great centerpoint between east and west Umbria, so we spent a memorable day doing a scenic eastern loop through montepulcino, pienza and montefollonico and ending in the warm thermal waters of bagno vignoni and bagno fillipe. Vignoni is a more tourist oriented spot that includes some roman baths, but for us the much warmer waters of the white whale baths below bagno san fillipe were much more memorable and fun. We spent another day on a western loop that mostly consisted of exploring Assisi, not to be missed. If we had another couple days we definitely would have wandered up towards Tuscany, but Umbria more than satisifed our hunger and thirst for food and adventure respectively.
Thanks so much to the owners and Nico who made us wonderful breakfasts to fuel us for the day!
Thank you so much for your review, we loved having you as our guests and really hope to see you back soon in Paciano. You should try once to come back in Autumn when the vineyards and woods are coloured in red and gold!
We wish you all the best!

Wonderful vacation choice!
Fabulous views of the countryside from half the windows; sweet internal views of the village from the other side. The living room was very nice and the huge dining room table was perfect! The kitchen was great and well-supplied. I would add dishwasher soap to the supplies, as I think foreigners would be likely to suspect one of the other soaps was for the dishwasher and could do it damage.) Upstairs bedrooms were perfect, all with private baths. We did have some hot water problems but Nico (the housekeeper) stayed on tops of those. Nico's sweet little baby boy, Dennis, was adorable and we just loved him! The downstairs was impressive, altho' I think we only used it once (but did make a nice fire in the fireplace!). The outside garden area is gorgeous, missing only some comfy chairs to sit in and read, or rest! The village itself is darling, very small. Really good restaurants with such congenial people. Our favorite was the "Oca Brucciata" right down the hill - excellent food, great choices and not too expensive! There's a nice food store and coffee bar farther down the hill and a butcher shop right in the village. Great place from which to branch out to all the surrounding areas! The owner's (Flaminia) notes are most helpful and she was a lovely, personable person to deal with.
A booster, maical weekend before a busy start !
Staying at this agriturismo was a wonderful and unique experience for us.
This historical building in the heart of Piacano, features immaculate rooms beautifully decorated by Flamy’s magical touch, and a house full of antique and family treasures. The fascinating surroundings of the Umbrian hills and countryside are some of the most intimate and natural settings we have ever encountered.
We stayed here two nights to get away from the speed and pace to which modern life has accustomed us. It was very hard to leave!
We walked nearby Monte Marzolana (586 m), from where the spectacular view of Lake Trasimeno was priceless.
There was a different kind of magic in the historical and cultural Città delle Pieve, and the Etruscan town of Chuisi, with its impressive underground labyrinth, and the hilltops town of Panicale.
Umbria is a place that stole our hearts, and Mastro Cinghiale will be a definite destination when we do so.

It was an amazing holiday in this charming Relais in Umbria. Flaminia, the owner was really helpful and nice. Our room, il Tasso, was overlooking the stunning countryside, and was very cosy.
We hope to be back soon!
Absolute gem with perfect setting! Beautiful
The house has been immaculately refurbished: preserving the grandeur and charm that becomes such an estate but at the same making it feel like a home from home.
We spend a weekend at the house with our friends, using it as a base to explore Umbria. Both families have children. The rooms were very comfortable and although both our rooms only had showers, it was great: instant hot water and good pressure.
The living area is spacious, well to be honest huge: there is the dining room and lounge on the ground floor, and then below is the breakfast room, reading/TV corner (very cosy) and sitting area with fire place. All of this opens up on to a beautiful terrace overlooking the surrounding countryside.
The kitchen is well equipped, but we made use of a restaurant just around the corner that delivers. Not your pizza-around-the-corner place: proper Italian cuisine. With the kids playing around (the house have toys and DVDs) and the comfortable fireplace we ended up getting take aways two nights in a row!
Thanks! Our mission is to make our big and little guests feel as if they were are at home… I am happy we were successful!
