Casa Lera is a real find and we had a wonderful two week stay for our multigenerational family. The added bonus is that you are not overlooked, feel like you are isolated but in reality are a five minute drive to the town centre, it’s even walkable!
This is our fourth visit to the Monti Sibillini region so feel we are beginning to know it quite well. The draw is the hiking in the mountains but also the wonderful little towns, the food, the people and the weather (which in the mountains can be unpredictable). Another draw to this area for us is that it is off the tourist map and therefore you get more of the ‘real’ Italy. We took part in a few of the local events in the nearby towns and felt welcome.
Casa Lera has been sympathetically renovated to modern house standards with all the mod cons you would expect. There are enough spaces to be together as a family but also to have some privacy. We made full use of all the bedrooms including the pool house. The beds were all comfortable and the pool house sofa bed was the best one I’ve slept on, very supportive.
The pool is kept immaculately and regularly cleaned etc. The property manager was attentive to our needs when we had any and equally checked everything was ok.
A wonderful two weeks. We will be back. I can really recommend Casa Lera.
Living in Cambridge on the edge of the Fens there is no better holiday than to escape to the hills. Vista del Mondo, perched in a col between two hills in the Appenine mountains above Spoleto, truly justifies its name.
Like all ancient heavy stone houses it has an interior coolness whatever the weather outside, and in our second week the temperature reached 40 degrees, so the house was a welcome home. The silence was profound, broken only by the barking of two sheepdogs. How fascinating that they kept their flock 24/7 with few visits from the shepherd. The swimming pool, shared with an Agriturisimo a little walk away was delightful. The separation from the house suited us because we had no worries over the safety of straying little grandchildren.
The house was well equipped. Only two requests: get a teapot for English guests, and put coat hooks for gowns on the inside of the bathroom doors. The provision outside for wood fires, and plenty of fire wood, delighted me as a bonfire maniac. We arrived to find a very generous welcome pack.
Outside the gate by the roadside was a huge stone with an inscription about the land of San Francesco and this part of the pilgrim way. May the blessed peace of Saint Francis be with all who stay here.
