A paradise in the beautiful Umbrian countryside

  • 5 of 5

We travelled as a family group of 7 people – Mum, Dad, 3 sons and 2 partners. From the moment that we were greeted by Katia who escorted us to the Villa Belvedere, we felt completely relaxed and at home. The villa is very spacious, clean and full of character and has all the amenities you could wish for – including a dishwasher, which wasn’t listed amongst the particulars. The most attractive features were the beautiful pool, the spacious grounds and the simply stunning views of the magnificent Umbrian countryside. The lovely town of Panicale is a 15-20 minute trek through the woods - the locals all gather in the village square for breakfast and the restaurants we visited all served excellent food accompanied by delicious local wine. There are numerous interesting and historic places to visit for day excursions – during our two week stay we visited Florence, Siena, Assisi, Perugia and Montepulciano. Closer to Panicale, we also made a few excursions to Castiglione del Lago – a lovely town with history dating back to the Etruscan times and numerous restaurants, including an excellent pizza restaurant. Other nice villages close to Panicale are Paciano and Corciano. In between sightseeing days, we just relaxed and chilled out around the pool reading books and enjoying the peace and quiet of our stunningly beautiful surroundings.

Katia was an extremely friendly, generous and hospitable host, who is justifiably proud of her home town of Panicale. She was always available for advice and help, without ever being intrusive. During our stay she gave us kind gifts of home made cake, several bottles of excellent local wine and a huge bag of local tomatoes from which we made a delicious ragu. We have had several similar self-catering holidays as a family, but the Villa Belvedere is definitely the nicest place we have visited. Grazie mille Katia for making this a really memorable holiday!

Amazing Villa in Panicale

  • 5 of 5

My family enjoyed the most amazing week staying in this Villa in Panicale. The Villa itself is well positioned and had all the comforts of 'home'. Our teenage boys swam in the pool everyday and we also made the walk to Panicale village, which takes around 15 minutes on the forest track. There are various great options in the Village for eating and dining, amazing food and wine. Katia was a fabulous host and recommended local attractions and places to visit. She is also on hand to assist or ask questions which was appreciated. The communication prior and during our stay was excellent. We played golf at Lomborghini Golf club, a lovely course located 15 minutes from the Villa. We hired bikes to ride around Lake Trasimeno and enjoyed fresh produce from local villages. Our time here was extremely relaxing and we hope to return to this beautiful Village and Villa in Panicale.

Exceptionnel ! A louer absolument !

  • 5 of 5

En quelques mots : nos meilleures vacances depuis que nous louons sur Abritel !!!

Katia, la gérante a été toujours très disponible pour nous renseigner ou pour la gestion de la villa durant nos vacances.

Nous étions trois couples avec deux enfants.

La villa est très luxueuse et dispose de tout ce qui apparaît dans le descriptif, elle est très propre. Chaque chambre est une suite avec salle de bain.

La piscine est très grande et offre une vue panoramique extraordinaire sur la région. Le paysage est à couper le souffle.

Panicale est un village fantastique où tous les commerçants sont très sympathiques et accueillants. Les villages environnants sont identiques. On peut d'ailleurs rejoindre le centre de Panicale à pied par un chemin de randonnée. Nous avons parcouru la Toscane durant 15 jours depuis ce pied à terre très luxueux pour se reposer de nos longues excursions.

Franchement, à louer sans hésitation pour ceux qui veulent passer par là; nous avons même décidé, depuis, d'acheter à Panicale, pour notre retraite...mais il nous reste quelques nombreuses années à patienter malheureusement.

An talian dream come true!

  • 5 of 5

It is hard to find the words to do justice to our wonderful stay at Villa Belvedere. We were lucky to spend 3 months here over the 2017 summer with our 2-year old daughter. Having day-dreamed of living in Italy for some years (we are from New Zealand) our stay was everything we could have hoped for and more – a true dream come true.

House: Villa Belvedere is perfection! The owners’ love for the house and Panicale is evident in every part of their home. It has been beautifully restored, is very clean and is fully equipped with everything needed, even for a long-term stay. A bottle of prosecco and bowl of fruit awaited us on arrival.

Inside, the house is a place of quiet comfort. A large open living area and dining area adjoin the well-placed kitchen area. There are 2 large comfortable bedrooms. A covered patio (accessed from the living area or master bedroom) is perfect for summer evenings outside.

The garden and pool allowed for many lazy days around the house and space for our toddler to play. The large shallow steps of the recently upgraded pool were a safe place for our daughter to splash about. The views from the Villa are spectacular. For a few weeks we had fire flies in the bottom of the garden!

My husband’s mother stayed with us for part of our visit and the upstairs apartment (with separate external access) was perfect for her. Like the house it is also beautifully restored, very clean and fully equipped.

Katia, who manages the property, is an absolute star! She is very warm, friendly and professional and was readily available to assist with any queries and help us make the most of our time in the area, letting us know about local events. Any issues (there were no major problems) were dealt with very promptly and respectfully. We will miss her and her beautiful family.

Village: Panicale, just over 1km from the house, is reached by a relatively easy walk along a track behind the house (or via the road), and is a real jewel. We explored other villages during our stay but never found anything to match its charm. We enjoyed mornings relaxing in the cafes in the square, watching the quiet village life go on around us. It is very convenient, with grocery shops, great restaurants, butchers etc. The locals are very welcoming and friendly.

Panicale and Villa Belvedere are well positioned for exploring Umbria and Tuscany (by car). Florence, Siena, Arezzo and Assisi can easily be visited in a day trip. We are so lucky to have found this amazing spot

our unforgettable vacation in Panicale

  • 5 of 5

So, it was amazing and fool of expectations which come true holiday! All our company note generous meeting with red wine's bottle, berrie's pie and pastry. We were glad to be accomodated by not indifferent Katie, who organised open-armed welcome and kindly explained us how to use all conveniences. Among them are two TV-sets, Marshall Stanmore, two refrigerators and blowers in each room. Some words about rooms - all of them are spacious, homely and comfortable, with all the necessaries,such as clean linen and personal towels,tooth paste and shower gels. What's more, all rooms were equipped with aromatic candles.House impressed us by high quality repairs and novelty of furniture,indicating about tastefulness. Special attention is given to recreation area - big and deep pool, several comfortable plank beds for sunbathing and umbrellas. More than that we were glad to find out that Panicale not so far from villa,so it takes you nearly 20 minutes to go there on foot.

To conclude we must say that this place has the most beatiful surrounding we have ever seen, and we wish everybody to use the hospitality of this charming luxurious country residence and plan your next vacation here. You will not be disappointed, noway! We also want to come back soon and plunge into the atmosphere of enchanting holiday right here!

A truly beautiful setting

  • 5 of 5

The villa is lovely and the setting spectacular. We had an extremely relaxing week here. Katia was a very helpful and lovely person to deal with. Panicale was a 15 minute walk through the wood or a 4 minute drive. We will be back!
