Bottale: Fall 2019
Wonderful experience! The house is beautiful, the location is great, the home owner is extremely helpful and professional and the house manager is fabulous. Recommend 1000%
A lovely house, spacious and well equipped. It has great views of the hills and Montone a few kms away. Beautiful infinity pool with incredible views again. Well located for visits to Assisi, Perugia and Gubbio. Slight traffic noise from the road in the morning is the only minor downside.
We had a wonderful week here .
The sorrunding was great
best place ever for location for visiting little hidden treasures
Amazing house! Everything was perfect.
The house is managed very well. We had a lovely time, the property is beautiful. Thanks for having us :-)
Exactly what I expected
Fabulous house in stunning location. I asked the owner questions before booking and got very honest replies. Downsides are height difference between parking space and the house makes taking luggage in hard work and the road (which has very light through traffic on it, used a lot by cycling clubs at weekends) which is close to but below the house. The passing traffic sometimes distracts on the terrace, but does not generally affect guests. Upsides are the fabulous views, the large well equipped attractive house, with terrific outside eating arrangements, and the lovely pool with a view. Having Eva as house manager, for whom nothing reasonable is too much trouble, is very reassuring. There is fabulous walking in the area, it is even possible to walk into Montone on footpaths and very quiet roads from the house, for lunch in Montone’s excellent restaurants. Some paths from the house are a bit overgrown but if there is a bit of an explorer in you and you download the maps, it is a good walk. So whether you want to laze by the pool, explore locally on foot, or a base for visiting the beautiful towns of Umbria it is a great location.
The nearest beach is at Lake Trasimeno, approximately one hour's drive away. One of the most beautiful seasidebeaches is at Sirolo, on the Adriatic coast, south of Ancona, which is a 2 hour drive. The Mediterranean coast is a little further at (2.5 hours).
The nearest airport is Perugia (30 minutes) to which Ryanair have regular flights from Stansted. There are also airports at Forli (90 minutes), Ancona (2 hours), Bologna (2.5 hours), Pisa (2.5 hours) and Rome (2.5 hours).
As well as the local villages, where you will find all of your immediate needs, Bottale is well placed to explore some of the more famous towns and cities such as Perugia (45 minutes), Sienna (2 hours), Florence (2 hours), Rome (2.5 hours), Gubbio (1 hour), Urbino (1.5 hours).
Montone, awarded one of the most beautiful villages in Italy, is approximately 5km from the house and offers a very good selection of highly recommended restaurants, including Del Verziere, Erba Luna and Locanda del Capitano. It also has two delightful bars situated on the piazza together with several local shops (two grocers, a bakery and a delicatessen offering a range of good local produce). There is also a bank with cashpoint, post office, chemist, doctor and dentist. Umbertide is the nearest large town which has several supermarkets as well as its own restaurants and bars. Each Wednesday morning there is a market where you will find a wide variety of local produce including, vegetables, meats, cheeses and olives.
The region is renowned for its natural beauty and, although July and August are the hottest months, we would encourage prospective clients to consider May, June and September when the local fauna and flora are at there most resplendent.
