A large luxurious apartment in large farmhouse for 4 people
- english, italian
Maria (English) and Luigi (Italian) take great pride in their stunning farmhouse and their attention to detail when hosting their guests. Luigi is renowned for his pasta classes and is a very talented cook. Maria is fluent in Italian and teaches English to local people as well as being an expert gardener. Together, their knowledge of the local area is invaluable. They'll happily point you towards the best local eateries and can help with sightseeing planning. They are wonderfully discreet and on hand should you need them.
Maria purchased this Apartment in 1995
Why Maria chose Gualdo Tadino
We are happy for you to start your booking on any day of the week! This can often mean cheaper flights. It's a very personal experience staying in my home where you can practise your Italian, try our wine and eat at family restaurants.
What makes this Apartment unique
We fell in love with this part of the world as it is off the usually tourist track but within easy reach of wonderful historical villages and towns. Also for the beautiful mountain views! Friendly people , mountain walks, cave visits, good value restaurants, stunning views, cultural towns and list is endless! After all Italy is 75% mountain AND has the most art works of any country in the world!

We enjoyed the perfect 2 week holiday. Maria & Luigi made us feel most welcome, providing us with some wine made from their own vineyard upon arrival.
Our stay in the Owl accommodation was excellent. There is plenty of space over two floors for a larger family to spread out and do their own thing.
Maria and Luigi are the perfect hosts. Luigi even came to our kitchen to show us how to make perfect pasta - nothing was too much trouble.
The property is perfectly situated, with places like Perugia and Assisi no more than a forty minute drive.
The swimming pool was a perfect place for us to relax later in the day, sipping a nice glass of wine as the sun went down!
This is the perfect holiday location.
Beautiful, comfortable and well equipped flat.
We had a really lovely time. The hosts were most helpful and friendly. To be absolutely honest we found the outside cooker a bit unusual and would have liked a mosquito net hanging over the front door. But everything else was excellent and we would certainly recommend anyone to go and stay with Maria and Luigi.
Hello Glenn & Marilyn
Thank you so much for your review and we are both glad that you enjoyed your holiday at Domus Nova in the green heart of Italy! We always enjoy meeting new people, families and children when they choose Umbria for their holiday. We are constantly upgrading and improving our apartments and mosquito nets are on the list for next season. In general, the outside kitchen is welcomed by our guests as it stops the apartment heating up in any way. It was a great pleasure to meet you both and hope we might meet up again sometime in the future! Kind regards to you both. Maria & Luigi
Maria and Luigi are the perfect host's. Welcoming and helpful, they will give directions, information and help with the correct pronunciation when needed (quite often for us!). On the ground floor, our apartment was clean and came with everything we needed. We loved the cooker being outside. The shower was powerful and hot (although we quite often turned it to cold as it was so warm out there). The outside space by our apartment was great, we used this everyday and the pool was so inviting with a fantastic view as we swam. Maria told us to use the herbs and fruit from her garden, which we did. Jonathan loved the figs which he hadn't tried before.
We would love to return and see Maria and Luigi again. thank you both. XX
The only fault was ... we had to come home.
Thank you very much to the Davies family too! It was a pleasure to have you all here. Glad Jonathan enjoyed the figs! Whenever we have fruit or vegetables in the garden, we are more than happy to share them with our guests! The Rabbit apartment works well for families and it stays nice and cool inside. The outdoor kitchen works very well too. We are always happy to help in any way to make everone's holiday more enjoyable. The new pool terrace is a great success with plenty of space & great views as you said! Lovely way to start or finish the day with a bit of sightseeing in between. We hope to welcome you back to Domus Nova one day in the future. Maria & Luigi xx
No better stay in Umbria
We cannot imagine a better place to stay than with Maria & Luigi at Domus Nova. They are brilliant hosts & so kind and generous too
The apartment was spacious, clean and very well equipped with a wonderful view of the rolling farmland hills. Location was also perfect for our needs to visit surrounding hilltop towns especially Spello and Montefalco & Panicale etc. Assisi & Perugia also close by. Maria's excellent directions made life easier. Close to good shopping at Gualdo Torino too. Most highly recommended. Including a pool with a view!
Dear Ian & Julie, Thankyou so much for your glowing review! Luigi & I are so glad you had a good time. We enjoyed your company too especially the pasta making and eating day when it poured with rain! There are so many lovely places to visit close by and then come back and enjoy a swim to freshen up and take in the wonderful view, as you well know. Hope the rest of your trip went well and you are now safely back home looking back at your time in Umbria with fond memories. Hope that our paths may cross again sometime. Best wishes to you both.
We are located between Assisi & Gubbio and 20 minutes from Perugia in a rather undiscovered part of Umbria. You can enjoy mountain & forest walks, wild flower meadows, cave visits, sightseeing (hilltop villages, historical towns & castles) and eating delicious Umbrian food. All at a fraction of the cost of neighbouring Tuscany! Everyone loves relaxing by our pool either on a sunbed or eating lunch in outdoor sitting room soaking up spectacular mountain views! We are on the main railway link to Rome
