We found this farm and we loved it from the first sight. The location was perfect – deep in a beautiful countryside but in the same within quick and comfortable reach of the stunning cities of Perugia, Orvieto, Rome and Florence.

Fantastic holiday

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Casa Rondini this summer 2012 for a week at the end of July and this was our 5th visit here (that's how much we like it!). The place is very peaceful, with a good pool and lovely spacious apartments. There are lots of little hill top towns to explore in the vicinity as well as being close enough to visit lovely places such as Orvieto, Siena, Todi and Assisi. However, the thing that really makes this place special are the optional communal evening meals 3 times a week where you can design your own pizza (Pizza night) which is then cooked by Franco in the stone pizza oven, try your hand at making pasta which is then expertly cooked and served with amazing sauces by Franco (Pasta night), or sample some wonderful recipes using Franco and Bozena's home grown saffron (Saffron night). And I almost forgot to mention the home made wine and limoncello! Getting to know a number of families from across Europe and USA at these meals has been a highlight each time we have visited. We have no hesitation in recommending this place and also the wonderful hosts Franco, Bozena and their 2 delightful daughters.

A Wonderful Holiday

  • 5 of 5

My family and I have just returned from two weeks ta Casa Rondini, staying in one of the ground floor apartments. The apartment provided us with everything we needed for our stay, there was much needed shade at the front and the back of the property and we were within feet of the pool area. Everything was clean and the whole place runs like clockwork. We enjoyed the surrounding countryside and visiting numerous hill towns but what really made the holiday special were the meals cooked by Franco and the opportunity to get to know other guests. Each Sunday there is a pizza night, where guests get to make their own pizza and meet new guests. On Tuesdays there is a pasta night, where after making your own pasta, Franco makes some wonderful sauces. Thursday is saffron night, again Franco produced three courses of delicious food, all washed down by home made wine and limoncello. Superb! A place we would recommend to friends and relatives (high praise indeed).

Magnificent agriturismo, wonderful family

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Casa Rondini was perfect in every way; Franco & his family are wonderful hosts. Our apartment was second floor with beautiful terraces front & back: our front view looked up the stone-paved drive between olive trees, back terrace overlooked a huge azure swimming pool with its own backdrop of Umbrian hills & Montegabbione. Fresh flowers & a bottle of wine waited on the table, & the kitchen cupboards were full of spices, olive oil, wine vinegar, tea - everything to easily spend a comfortable week. Bedroom & bath were simply & beautifully furnished in keeping with the rural ambiance. We were free to roam fields & garden, choosing "real" Roma tomatoes from the little harvest still remaining in late October. Casa Rondini is a great point from which to tour this region, a center of Etruscan life. The villa has a great little library of tourist info (& books left by fellow travellers - meet aurelio Zen!) & Bozena is so willing to to give further help & advice. She printed out a train schedule to Florence for us - the 2+ hour ride from Fabro was as much fun as the day in the city! The Saffron Festival in Citta della Pieve occurred the weekend we were there & Franco & his family made sure to invite us to Sunday's 3-course luncheon benefitting the region's organization of saffron (from crocuses) growers . It was fun, delicious, & now we can say we've eaten saffron gelato, watched artists painting with saffron, & felt like locals for the day! Franco cooked a magnificent dinner for us & other guests (all of whom were returning with their families for the fifth & sixth times- what does that tell you?!) the night before we had to leave. Franco, Bozena & their daughters have made Casa Rondini a once-in-a-lifetime experience. You will, as will we, try to find a way to return.

lovely holiday

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a 2 week stay at Casa Rondini. We have previously rented many apartments in Italy, and I have to say this was the best experience we have had. The apartments are cozy and comfortable. We had a lovely fireplace and made fires on a few nights. The pool is beautiful and the setting heavenly. But best of all are the host and hostess Franco and Bozena. They could not have been more welcoming and helpful. Two nights of pasta making w/ other guests were great fun. Vegetables from their bountiful organic garden are free and eggs from the chickens available at a minimal price, along w/ their own wine, olive oil, saffron and honey.

The incredibly peaceful silence surrounding the house is something to revel in. It is set out in the rolling hills, but a quick and easy ride to the A1 for longer day trips, and close to many other beautiful towns, both in Umbria and Tuscany. I couldn't recommend it more highly!

The perfect Italian experience!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Casa Rondini for a week in early September of 2010. Our entire trip to Europe was 21 days and by far my whole family counted our time with Franco & Bozena as the unquestionable highlight of our trip. The "pasta night" with Franco was more than we could have hoped for...a wonderful time of fellowship with Franco & Bozena and another couple from the US. The food and wine were of incredible quality. We even got to help Franco get started with his annual wine making process. Unbelievable! The rooms were large and very comfortable. The terraces on the east and west sides were superb for sunrises and quiet enjoyment of wonderful sunsets. We will absolutely come back when we are in Europe again.

Wonderful relaxing two weeks.

  • 5 of 5

Property exactly matches its description on the website. Very clean, simple and comfortably furnished. The apartment had everything we needed. We enjoyed morning sun on the balcony and have splendid time relaxing by the pool. Our children loved it and could spend all day by the pool. The views are fantastic and watching sun sets every evening was a highlight of the day. Very good place to explore Umbria and Tuscany. We particularly enjoyed picking up fresh eggs every morning for our breakfast and lovely organic vegetables for our lunch and dinner. Making pizza and fresh pasta was a joy!"
