A peaceful getaway and a base from which to explore Umbria

  • 5 of 5

My extended family of 10 loved their stay at this villa. The owner, Matteo, could not have been more hospitable and welcoming. The villa itself is an excellently renovated farmhouse with high quality fittings and is wonderfully cool even in the heat of the day. The pool is great and a reasonable size with plenty of poolside furniture for 7-8 people set into a terrace that's about 30 paces from the villa. The terrace area is the jewel in the crown with a long table for family meals, card games late into the night or for those who enjoy the peace of an early morning, looking out over a rural Umbrian landscape (my personal favourite).

Laze by the pool or strike out for Gubbio, Perugia, Assisi which are not far away but even Sienna is less than 2 hours away. I thoroughly recommend this property. The bicycles are a thoughtful touch but if you're keen to cycle, bring your own or plan to hire in Perugia.

Owner's Response: Dear Phil, I am very happy you spent a great time in Umbria and in Casale San Benedetto, Umbria is a beautiful country, not so full of tourists, so it is perfect for resting and exploring. I always try to fix the house at the best to allow my guests to live a great experience. Take care and hope to see you and your family again. Matteo

Das Haus, der Pool und die Umgebung sind fantastisch.

Matteo und seine Familie kümmerten sich sehr um uns und haben uns viele Tips für Ausflüge in die Umgebung und z.B. Restaurants gegeben.

Perugia und Assisi und weitere sehr schöne Städte sind schnell und einfach zu erreichen. Wir werden sicher wiederkommen.

Absolute Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

I cannot say enough wonderful things about this house and its owners, The Costarelli family. The pictures do not do it justice. Everything was magical about the house, the terrace, the garden, the pool and above all the panorama. I was fortunate to rent this casale for the whole month. The location for touring Umbria and Tuscany is wonderful. And also, if one just wants to sit by the pool, nothing gets better than that. Over the month I had 15 visitors. Everyone just kept saying "Wow". The Costarelli's are fabulous people. They responded immediately to every request graciously and went way above the normal host duties by delivering several guests lost luggage and helping track that down. I do hope to go back often and I am in love with this house, this piece of Umbria and the whole Costarelli family.

zon, rust, ruimte en comfort.

  • 5 of 5

Wij hebben fantastisch genoten van dit ruime en comfortabele hus. Ideaal voor grote gezinnen of groepen, 10-11 personen.

Grote keuken, elke slaapkamer met badkamer, ook voldoende ruimte wanneer het weer wat minder is. Vriendelijke eigenaars.

Ook vanaf het zwembad, bereikbaar via een 'mini-Stelvio', is het uitzicht prachtig.

Heerlijk ontbeten op de gezellige veranda en heerlijk gegeten van de barbeque. Een aanrader!

Het kleine Italiaanse paradijs.

  • 5 of 5

Een prachtig, in Italiaanse stijl, ruim landhuis voorzien van alle comfort in een prachtige omgeving met een wijds uitzicht. Een gevarieerde vegetatie met fruitbomen, kruiden en 'wildlife'. Hier kom je tot rust en is genieten binnen handbereik. Schitterend.
