Guestbook comments from the manager

“Ciao,You're Family !”



If you've ever dreamed of the perfect Italian villa you owe it to yourself to stay at Le Terrae.



Picture a quaint but beautifully cared for home with flowers (yes even in December) at every turn. Imagine walking up the path to the rounded doorway that leads to a remarkably spacious and beautifully furnished interior.



Want romance and intimacy? Sit in front of the upstairs fireplace or peer out the master bedroom window overlooking the Italian countryside.



Want plenty of room for extended family (we had 8) sit around the spacious downstairs kitchen table. Plus there are comfortable sitting areas all over the house if you'd like to just sit quietly and read a book.



Want convenience? The driveway leads directly to the downstairs kitchen entrance and shopping is close by. Be sure to ask for suggestions when you arrive and don't miss the fun of going to the butcher shop.



Rome is an hour's ride to the south and the beautiful walled cities (Siena, Assisi, Todi, Spoleto, and more) of Umbria and Tuscany are easy day trips. Florence is about 2 1/2 hours and even the world's oldest independent republic, San Marino, is do-able in a day.



Want a picturesque village to get a quick snack, or an incredible meal? Vasanello is five minutes away.



Want to be greeted warmly? Anna will treat you like you are part of her family.

A wonderful location for a vacation

  • 5 of 5

We would like to thank you for a wonderful stay. We enjoyed the beautiful villa, spent hours walking through the neighbouring towns, and visiting Florence, Norcia, Montalcino, Canepina, Vasanello and Orte. Your suggestions and directions were perfect and made our visit very comfortable. Also, our cooking class with Dolores was a highlight and we cannot wait to get home to impress our family and friends with all we learned. She is a treasure! Dave loved feeding the cats and hanging the laundry to dry, and relaxing by the fire at night was a gig. Thank you for sharing this special place with us!

Perfect vacation

  • 5 of 5

My extended family and I stayed at the villa over Christmas and New Years a few years ago. There were 7 of us, and the villa was absolutely perfect - the bedrooms were comfortable, the villa was spacious, and the property it is on is spectacular. If you are looking for some place where you can cook your own meals and relax with family, this is definitely the place to be.

Anna and Alessandra were perfect hosts - our flight came in late, so by the time we arrived all the grocery stores had closed and we were wondering what we were going to do for dinner and breakfast. However, once we got to the villa we were surprised with a fridge full of groceries, cupboards of dry goods, and even some wine! It was such a wonderful surprise. The sisters made booking easy, and even left us with numerous maps and suggestions on where to go. The outdoor bocce court was an added bonus, and we spent the majority of Christmas day and New Years day playing bocce and drinking wine. My only slight complaint about the villa is that it was a little chilly at times - you can tell that it was built for a milder climate and isn't meant to pump out a lot of heat in the winter. However, coming from Canada we were obviously well equipped and just wore layers indoors and lit fires every evening.

In terms of staying in Orte, as a family with all adult children we wanted to stay in a smaller town outside of Rome so we could have some privacy and relax away from the big city (we are originally from Toronto). The train station in town runs trains regularly to Rome, so we made several day trips into Roma (which was much easier than driving!) Orte is also close enough to Umbria and Tuscany that we were able to tour several of the neighbouring towns including Viterbo, Orvieto, Spoleto, Civita di Bagnoregio, and even Florence. The grocery store in town "Coop" has all the amenities you would need and we shopped there regularly. The only slight problem was we found that people in town spoke very little English, but everyone was very friendly and we were able to get by no problem.

My family and I would come again in a heartbeat.

Truly marvelous stay in Umbria - Mille Grazie!

  • 5 of 5

For ten days in August, our family of five had the time of our lives at La Terrae. The villa and its grounds are truly marvelous - a treat for all the senses. We were greeted warmly by Alessandra and immediately fell in love with the villa. From it, we enjoyed numerous day trips to Roma, Firenze and Assisi (all spectacular). The local towns of the area were magical and our visits included daily stops at the Grecam shop for cappuccino and pastries in Vasanello, plus mineral hot baths near Viterbo and live opera in Viterbo. We'll never forget the four “i gatti di Villa” one of whom we nicknamed “cavatappi” for the unique shape of her tail, the daily visits of Annuziata, and unforgettable family bocce ball matches. This was a truly breathtaking vacation for our family. Mille grazie to Anna and Alessandra for allowing us to stay at La Terrae. We would love to come back sometime again. Ciao!

Wonderful

  • 5 of 5

We had 4 adults (husband and wife and 2 college age daugthers)- all active and mobile. We found that the listing description is accurate and the property was clean and well maintained. The owners were teriffic before and after our arrival. The Villa is very spacious and was more than ample for our stay and could fit several more comfortably for sure. The house and grounds are secluded. We used the Villa as our home base while we explored the area and Umbria and Tuscany by rental car by day. We really enjoyed our stay at the Villa. It was also convenient to drop off our rental car and take a short train ride to Rome where we rented the apartment of the same owners which we also found to be perfect for us.

Brief, but beautiful!

  • 4 of 5

Our October 2010 four-day visit to LeTerrae was way too short. Temperatures were sometimes cool, but the villa had such warmth and charm.that we couldn't have cared less about the weather. We just wanted to stay longer. Each day we headed to one of the hill cities; then in the evenings found ourselves dining at one of the wonderful local restaurants recommended by Anna. This is a perfect location for enjoying the more rural lifestyle of Italy. Next time we'll stay longer!

A great place to stay and see Italy

  • 5 of 5

It was incredible to stay at such a great Villa in such a beautiful setting. I would recommend the Villa over other hotel lodging. The Villa is just 1 hour to Rome, close to the town of Orte and the train station. We spent quiet evenings there and planned our day trips to Florence, Siena, Spoleto, Orvietto and many other towns.

We saw the Vatican, Coliseum, Ufffizi muesuem , palaces, and other historical sites. It is incredible how much we were able to see and do in 10 days. There are also great lakes for swimming and we spent 2 days at Lake Balsena and Lake Vicho relaxing in the sun.

The Villa can accomodate a couple of families or more easily and is a great place to stay. I will definetly do another trip to LaTerrae.
