Tomasso, the manager, was always quick to respond to any questions that we had. He drove into Umbertide to guide us up to the house, which is about three miles up the countryside from the main road. The house is totally gorgeous with panoramic views. The ground are well maintained by Mario, the gardener, who was kind enough to give us a few vegetables from the garden. The house itself was well equipped and there was dish & hand soap, laundry detergent, toilet paper, Everything that one needed to get started. The kitchen is well outfitted which was great as we cooked at home several days. The pool is magnificent and although not heated (spoiled Americans!) it was fabulous. Can't say enough other than we will be going back! Thank you Tomasso and give your parents our regards. Julie, Joe, Kevin & Mario.

From the moment we started the climb up the hill from Umbertide we thought the villa would be good, and we were not disappointed. The view from the villa is breathtaking. The owners greeted us on arrival with a really warm welcome, and you felt like you were priveldged to be borrowing their home. The rooms were tastefully decorated and the house had all the amenities you could need (including full kitchen equipment, dishwasher, washing machine, wifi, satellite tv, and the added bonus of a gardener who delivered fresh tomatoes from the garden each day). There are lots of seating areas amongst the ground which allows you to enjoy the breathtaking view from different angles. The covered terrace was a great spot to eat during the day and relax in the hammock and watch the sunset in the evening with a glass of wine. The pool was a welcome respite from the heatwave, and the pool room is a great addition for storing poolside drinks and icecreams.
It is a totally amazing villa, in a peacefully remote location with spectacular views, and convenient to exploring the Umbria region. Highly recommended to those who are keen to get away from it all.
