Best host ever!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic stay in the ground floor flat. Although it was hot outside, the flat was always nice and cool without any fans. Giovanni is an excellent host and really cares about the well being of his guests. He loves children and took the kids to feed the animals almost every day. They also host a dinner for all the guests which is amazing! Would definitely go back!

Relaxing, beautiful countryside with an amazing host!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay in Valtopina. We have been to Italy several times but this was our first visit to Umbria. Giovanni did an excellent job of understanding our interests and suggesting amazing hill towns to visit and restauarants for our family. One afternoon he took us to his hometown and gave us a tour.

The grounds at Cerqua Rosara are in perfect condition. We would tour during the day and come back for a relaxing swim and hang out at the property until dinner. The house was very clean and the 3 bedroom was more than what we needed for a family of 4 but we enjoyed the space and the pricing was very reasonable. We will be back!

The most magnificent hideaway in Umbria. Our family arrived to the most wonderful welcome from Giovanni, our host of Cerqua Rosara. We rented the apartment with 3 bedrooms (all ensuite), full kitchen with all the amenities, beautiful living room with fireplace and dining area that could seat 12. Everything was impeccable and well maintained.

We have 3 girls ranging in age from 4-12 who absolutely loved all the farm animals and had so much fun picking fresh eggs every morning for breakfast, playing with the dog, Layla and petting the baby rabbits and chickens. Riding the donkeys was another great experience and lasting memory that they talk about all the time. Even though the pool wasn't yet open, there was so much to do.

Giovanni could not have been more hospitable. He gave us a personal tour of the Region bringing us high up into the mountains on excursions that we would never have done on our own. We eat in great restaurants and even cooked out on a BBQ one evening on the property.

Cerqua Rosara is 1/2 hour (or less) to Assisi, Norcia, Spello and other great places to visit in the Umbria region.

I would definitely recommend this place to anyone who is looking for a little piece of heaven. Our only regret was that we didn't stay longer. We will definitely be back Giovanni, thanks for everything. Ciao!

Absolutely great!

This year it was a great experience to be a guest again at Gianni in Cerqua Rosara. And a guest you are! Gianni knows how to be an excellent host welcoming you in effortless style and make the stay memorable. With his exuberant impact he organizes a weekly cozy (naturally noncommittal) BBQ where you can meet the other guests while enjoying fine wine and good food.

People with culinary heart are well catered for. Umbria include the region of olives, truffles and wine. Gianni example you can point the way to an authentic olive press where you can buy delicious viscous oil that you will not find in the supermarket. This year his nephew came along with fresh truffles he had found a day in the woods. He sells them to restaurants in Rome, but first came along at Cerqua Rosara. Not to get rid of its truffles, but to see them, smell them and to tell about. Then you get the chance to buy some at a friendly price, including some tips on how to prepare them in case you don’t know. We did not expect our children would find it so tasty!

Gianni also can give you tips to visit vineyards in the rolling Montefalco region. There you can then buy your wine from the chateau, often including educational tour.

The property is beautiful, luxurious, very spacious and child friendly. The pictures on the website give a good impression. The very large house is divided into apartments of various sizes. The spacious layout and good insulation keeps the apartments cool and the neighbors won’t bother you. We have met nice families from all corners of Europe.

This year, Gianni has set up a corner of the site as sort of petting. He has three donkeys, a few geese, rabbits, ducks, not to mention many chickens! That ensure supply of farm-fresh eggs (nice for the truffle;-)). For the children and for us it was a feast!

The apartment is fully equipped and it is quite beneficial in Umbria to make day trips from there. Often we went in the morning on the road to one of the many sights to see and then enjoy an extensive Italian lunch in the authentic towns / villages. Compared with Tuscany Umbria wilder, less touristy, less crowded and more friendly priced.

A great place to return to!

Our stamping ground in Italy

  • 5 of 5

First time we visited Cerqua Rosara in 2010 in August and returned in next years four times in May and June. We conifmed our previous filling we found the unusual holiday site. Comfortable, clean and modern equiped houses like Cerqua Rosara you can find in Italy probably quite easy. Even you expect peaceful and well situated place for visiting most interesting historical and natural Umbrian's points with huge, panoramic environment, beautiful very old oak trees and realy clean pool. Exceptional in Cerqua Rosara is the owner. We spent in Italy holiday every year from nineties - sometimes two times a year - but we never met the person as resposible, solicitous for visitor's feeling, helpful in every necessity as Gianni. We never before found the owner so engaged in permanent improvement his country house to be every year more comfortable and useful for guests. We are sure that visiting Cerqua Rosara you will be not disappointed.
