WORTHY OF MORE STARS!!! Podere Porcino is a truly world class not to be missed!

  • 5 of 5

We immensely enjoyed five nights in Casa Erika at Podere Porcino, a romantic, enchanting, and private enclave overlooking a spectacular view of the Umbrian countryside. Actually, we could live at Casa Erika! Maria and Gianni made our experience truly unforgettable...we were treated like dear family who came to visit. Their loving kindness touched our hearts and we made what will be a lifelong personal connection with them. Casa Erika is well equipped for cooking, provides a very comfortable bed, and a powerful shower. The setting was peaceful, beautiful, meditative, and good medicine for the soul. The location is great for excursions to Parco di Monstri, Civita di Bagnoregio, Valle dei Calanchi, Orvieto, and much more. Can't wait to return!!! Thank you Maria and Gianni!!!

A wonderful, comfortable, beautiful retreat

  • 5 of 5

Maria and her family have created a wonderful retreat overlooking stunning views. After a busy time of touring the cities, it was a perfect place to rest, to visit with friends and to enjoy the beauty of this area. The apartments are cozy, clean and comfortable. It is well located to visit the surrounding hill towns and we were greeted like friends. I would love to return some day!

Very nice place in the Italian countryside

  • 5 of 5

Podere Porcino is a very nice and rural place, with lots of interesting stuff in the nearby landscape. The place is situated in the middle of the lovely Italian countryside, not too long from the either the sea, Rome, or the wineyards in the southern part of Tuscany. A quick trip to the local supermarket gives you lots of good local food, wine and beer. A trip to Civita Bagnoregio on top of an old volcano is also recommended, it gives a good view over the nearby sand cliffs, which are some of the stranger geological formations you can find in Italy. Take a walk amidst the cliffs, they are like mesas made of sand. The local restaurant has a menu of the day wich is delicious.

The property is very nice, lots of strange fruits and trees, very well mantained. We were received us as a part of the family - we would really recommend a visit to Podere Porcino!

Traumhaft ruhig und wunderschön

  • 5 of 5

Ein wunderbarer Ort, um sich der schönen Landschaft, den netten Menschen und dem gutem Essen und Trinken hinzugeben.

Die Wohnungen sind sehr schön und gemütlich mit vielen Möglichkeiten sich im Freien aufzuhalten, wenn man sich mal von den Aktivitäten erholen möchte.

Maria und Gianni sind wunderbare Gastgeber, die ein natürliches Gefühl dafür haben, ob man seine Ruhe oder sich unterhalten möchte.

Maria kann für die unterschiedlichsten Interessen Tipps geben -Wandern, Sehenswürdigkeiten, Kultur, Essen gehen - sie hat immer Ideen. Ausserdem kocht sie fantastisch.

Für uns war dieser Urlaub einer der erholsamstem und gleichzeitig inspirierendsten seit langer Zeit.
