About Franco or Bozena

We are Franco and Bozena. We live here since 2002 and we love it. We specialise in producing our own organic extra virgin olive oil, vine and saffron. We love looking after the farm but having guests coming from all over the world and staying in our apartments makes our life here very special.

Franco or Bozena purchased this apartment in 2002

Why Franco or Bozena chose Orvieto area

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. We knew is going to be a hard work but we still enjoying every moment of it.

What makes this apartment unique

Beautiful unspoiled countryside, great climate and wonderful weather most of days in a year, friendly local people. Easy reach to beautiful Italian cities.

Second stop at CasaRondini

  • 5 of 5

This was a return trip for me to this lovely agriturismo in the countryside of Montegabbione. I visited with family members in 2011, and loved it enough to bring 5 more family and friends to stay for a few days again this year. Bozena and Franco make this such a lovely stay because they are delightful people. We learned to make pasta and had a couple of fabulous meals with the other guests. You have access to the organic garden, fresh eggs, their own wine, saffron, jams, olive oil, etc., making your own home cooked meals so much fun. We rented a car and traveled to many near-by towns and always made it home to either eat with the guests or make our own fantastic meal. We rented the two upper 2-bedroom apartments overlooking the pool as well as the vineyard on both trips, and they were both just perfect.

Travelers from southern Oregon USA

  • 5 of 5

We were a group of 6 that were making our way around Italy and stopped for four nights at this wonderful agri touristmo. We rented the two top apartments and had wonderful views of the valley and a deck with to relax on.

Our hosts held a pasta night for us. We learned how to make pasta and then they cooked a wonderful dinner for us. We also had a saffron dinner night, which was delicious.

Charming and great for kids

  • 5 of 5

Very friendly and helpful owners. Beautiful rural surroundings and with a nice pool. Our two boys (9 and 13 years) very much enjoyed the evenings with pizza baking and pasta making, and so did we parent - as well as the relaxed atmosphere. Feeding the chickens and rabbits, spotting the turtle and digging up their own cucumbers was other hits.

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.
