Fabulous Italian home
We could not have been happier with this farm house and Orvieto as our home base. Allesandra and Perluigi were the perfect hosts, bringing us fresh eggs, fruit and jam and allowing us free range of the farm and its bounty. It really exceeded our expectations, which were already high based on previous reviews. Under any circumstances, this is a wonderful home, but with a 3-year old it was perfect. He loved eating tomatoes off the vine, "driving" the tractor and checking on the chickens. We could be in town in quickly for a meal or shopping, but also easily drive to any number of charming hilltop or lake beach towns in under an hour. We hope to return soon.
Words fail us to thank for such a warm comments! It was really a pleasure knowing you and your wonderful family. We are very happy that you enjoyed your stay in our apartment.
It was so amazing to see the adorable Jona walking around without shoes full of curiosity! Thank you for the absolutely respect you had for the house and the environment, you are really the perfect guest.
We really hope to see you again. We wish you and all the family all the best. Thank you for choosing us! Alessandra, Pierluigi e Piergiuseppe
Absolutely lovely cottage and owners!
On our visit to Umbria after Rome and the beautiful little town of Orvieto, we lucked out by finding this cottage for a 4 night stay and hated to leave! It is a newly built and thoughtfully furnished and well-equipped, neat as a pen, and very clean. It is filled with art by the owner's father and in a separate, stand-alone building near their home in the country right outside of Orvietto. You can see up to part of the town from their property, and it takes just minutes to drive to the parking lot and then take the elevator or escalator is up to the town (walkable in the daylight). The cottage is comfortable and nicely furnished with everything you could want including TV, stereo, and fireplace! The two bedrooms, one with a queen and one with the single bed, share one very nice large bathroom. I hate to make any complaint about this lovely property, but the queen bed was rather hard, at least for my taste. Nothing a foam mattress topper couldn't fix! I also recommend a side table between the sofa and the sitting chair. Although we arrived much later than planned and inconvenienced the owner, she could not have been more gracious and accommodating and helpful! Even brought us fresh pasta sauce and fresh eggs and their own wine. We went on from Orvieto to Spoleto and Assisi visiting many hill towns along the way, but this was by far our favorite accommodation and our favorite town. I also forgot to mention that we were there for the October earthquakes which fortunately did not cause any deaths like in August but quite a bit of damage in nearby town in the mountains region not far from where we were visiting! But we Californians are tough. Thank you Allesandra and Luigi!
thank you so much for your kind warm words. It was a pleasure hosting you and your family and we would happily have you back. You are really perfect guests, discreet and respectful of the property.
Thank you for the time you dedicated to us, we will make good use of your details in order to make future stay more enjoyable. We wish you all the best and hope that in your programs there is still a trip here.
A presto Alessandra e Pierluigi
Beautiful country home away from home
A warm welcome, gracious hosts and an unforgettable three weeks in this beautiful county house provided for a wonderful holiday. Not only is the house well equipped for your everyday needs, but appointed with great attention to detail. Fresh eggs, produce and an invitation to the grape harvesting activities were just some of the highlights. The kindness, helpful directions, and the many sight-seeing suggestions we received from Alessandra gave us an experience we will always cherish. The description, photos and details of this property was everything and more we expected.
Dear Karen and Rick
You will be our unforgettable guests! It was a great pleasure knowing you, so kind, polite and friendly, I loved our pleasant coffee-conversations. Thank you for participating to our life and being so cooperative and open to dialogue.
You are the guests everybody would host, definitely respectful.
Thank you again for the time you dedicated to us. Please, come again!
This place is one of the most perfect to stay
This is one of those places that you just cannot say enough good things about. We are a family of four and this house accommodated us perfectly. The kitchen was large enough to actually cook in; there was a dishwasher, a washing machine and a nice sized refrigerator. The proprietors were extremely friendly and even invited us to help ourselves to the vegetable garden. Just outside of the walls of the old town of Orvieto, there was parking and quiet nights. I recommend this location highly.
A perfect home away from home.
We had a very relaxing 10-day stay here. Alessandra and Pierluigi went out of their way to make us feel welcome and comfortable. The house is pristine and has all the modern comforts, including cable tv, wi-fi, dishwasher and washing machine. It also has air conditioning though we didn't use it because the inside stays very cool. Screens on all of the windows were an unexpected surprise. We cannot imagine a better place to stay in Umbria and hope to return often.
Patricia and Jim were such two lovely guests. They were really cool, kind and friendly and we had pleasant conversations; we felt them not really as guest but as good neighbors. Thanks so much for staying with us. We are glad you enjoyed your stay and appreciate very much the time you dedicated to us; we wish you all the best and hope that in your programs there is still a trip here.
A presto Alessandra, Pierluigi e Piergiuseppe
Beautiful and Convenient - perfect stay
Lovely property and the owners were very hospitable. This is a great place to stay and visit surrounding areas or to just stay at the farm and basque in the peacefulness and beauty of Mother Nature. Everything we needed was provided. Would love to stay again some time.
We are glad you enjoyed your stay and appreciate very much the time you dedicated to us; we wish you all the best and hope that in your programs there is still a trip here.
