La Bella Italia
We had an amazing time in Umbria. Tony’s house is as described, fully equipped, very well located, near many cities to visit - we felt at home. You can feel the effort he put in to welcome his guests. We really enjoyed the end of the day sitting on the varandas for a nice dinner or simply reading a book and looking at the view. It’s very peaceful, great for kids all ages, many small supermarkets around. Tony’s recommendations of what to do in the nearby area are spot on. If you are looking for a place to stay in Umbria, you won’t be wrong with this one.
Thank you so much for your comments It really makes it worthwhile to hear you all had such a good time
Stunning home in the idilic Umbrian countryside
The house was beautiful, even more so than the photos and immediately felt more like a home than a holiday let. The property managers were very helpful and gave us some good hints and tips on the local area. The situation of the house blends privacy with close driving proximity to many great places to visit, for us highlights included Assisi and Passignano sul Trasimeno amongst the many day trips we had. Highly recommend the property and location to others, hoping to return ourselves in the future.
Amazing, beautiful, property, very well located close to Tuscany.
We have spent lovely summer week in this amazing property. The house is big enough for two families (8 people). Kitchen is very well equipped.
You can enjoy the Italian "Dolce Vita" in this amazing place.
I strongly recommend that for those that want to mix visiting Umbria/ Tuscany with relaxing at the beautiful sunny pool.
I hope to spend another week in this house next year:)
Thank you so much for your kind review I am so pleased you all enjoyed your stay and look forward to seeing you next year
This property is absolutely stunning! We have just returned from a blissful fortnight at Casale Sole and can honestly say there was nothing we would change. The house is very well equipped and finished to a high standard particularly the beautiful kitchen which led out on to a lovely shaded loggia where we enjoyed numerous home cooked meals and tasty take away pizza from the local pizzeria in Gioello. Nearby San Secondo has a wonderful patisserie with exceptional croissant and cakes that provided for delicious breakfasts as the sun gradually warmed us. The house is really well situated for visiting some beautiful hilltop towns and villages, Montone being one of them.
There were 8 of us at the house plus a 1 year old. Arranged over 3 floors there was plenty of space for everyone. Outside, the pool was lovely and great for the younger members of the party.
Overall, I would certainly recommend this property to anyone after a really special break!

The village has some tennis courts and you can kayak on the Tiber
35 minutes from Perugia airport for Stansted. Other accessable airports are Pisa Rome Rimini Ancona Florence and Bologna. The regional railway is just 4 miles away. Regardless you'll need a car.
The house is 10 minutes from the village if you are walking, [2 by car] with it's basic general store, bar and pharmacy, Above the valley sits the Etruscan hill town of MSM Tiberina.
The vibrant walled town of Citta di Castello is less than 15 minutes away, with shops, restaurants, a constant calendar of events and a brilliant Italian buzz. Plus all the cultural treasures of Umbria & Tuscany are on the (well almost) doorstep.
On the Tiber, Citta di Castello is a Roman/Medieval walled city, as well as a thriving modern community where, if you want a stay-at-home holiday there's everything to sustain your retreat. If you want to explore the area, etruscan, roman, medieval and boroque, fauna & flora then we are less than an hours drive from Assisi Gubbio Perugia Arezzo San Sepulcro Cortona, Monterchi is just up the road on the Piero della Francesca route. Performances in the world's smallest opera house in Umbertide. Browsing antiques and majollica in Deruta Cortona but in particular the justifiably famous Arezzo antique market. Never forget Lake Trasimeno [of Hannibal fame] with it's ferries. Each year we update our information sheet with details of things to do, where to go, where to shop etc.
