Amazing and beautifully restored farmhouse in perfect location - don't miss it!!

  • 5 of 5

This house is fantastic. It is only a few minutes from a supermarket, butcher and homemade pasta shop but nestled in the hills you feel as if you are away from everyone and everything!! It is perfect! Beautifully restored with a magnificent swimming pool, outdoor cooking and dining area; we enjoyed barbecues and making pizzas. We went to Assisi and nearby hilltop villages and spent a lot of time enjoying the house and the pool and the beautiful rural landscape. The sunrises and sunsets were wonderful. There are lots of places to visit nearby and we enjoyed a very special meal at Borgomela. Matteo is a great host. Our only regret was we were only there for 4 days!!! We will stay longer next time! Thanks Matteo!

Wonderful host

  • 4 of 5

Matteo was a wonderful host. We greatly enjoyed his home cooked dinner of pasta and sauce. He was always available to help us in any way we needed. The villa had everything we needed and is beautifully nestled in the hills of Umbria, off the beaten track, but convenient to highways.

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

A spacious beautiful house with all the comfort you need

  • 5 of 5

This house is a gem...

This beautifully restored house, in between the soft green hills of Umbria is a real retreat. The house is spacious, with all the amenities you can wish for. The rooms are comfortable and beautifully decorated with extraordinary historic furniture, enough space for all the belongings, big long tables and lots of beautiful rustic chairs and benches and traditional, comfortable sofas and arm chairs. Every bedroom has a luxurious spacious ensuite bathroom. The house itself dates back to the 17th century, but the concept for restoration made the best out of it without compromising its charm and beauty.

We had a wonderful time. Matteo, the owner, provided us with really useful tips and told us about the long an interesting history of the house. Everything was absolutely uncomplicated and Matteo was there for us any time.

The property itself is nicely embedded in the hills and has a marvelous view on the surrounding hills and little “borgo” nearby. The neighbourhood is great for long morning walks through vineyards and old creeks. The large infinity pool is perfectly located for a swim into the horizon with tremendous views into the landscape.

The whole property is hard to describe without running out of adjectives. There is a large outdoor stone barbecue and pizza oven, a perfectly shadowed terrace, little spots and meadows here and there to relax. The owners offer classy comfortable outdoor furniture, lots of sun loungers, umbrellas and deck chairs to enjoy the pool and the outdoor space.

Perugia, Assisi, Gubbio and a lot of beautiful villages are very close (Matteo had also a lot of tips for us) and a very good equipped supermarket and little grocery stores are comfortably located in the nearby village. We tried out the vinotheque and two of the restaurants that Matteo recommended with great food and ambiences, but with such a beautifully equipped kitchen, there was often no need to got out rather than staying “home”. And that is exactly how we felt there: home!

We will definitely come again to stay longer!

Amazing 3 weeks at the villa

  • 5 of 5

When we arrived we were astounded by how beautiful the villa and surroundings were. The pictures do not do it justice. It was above and beyond what we expected. It was like what you see in the movies.

The villa is stunning. It is a restored farmhouse with spacious rooms.

We could see by the stone and woodwork that the owners put a lot of care into the restoration. It was extremely clean. It was surprisingly cool in the evenings with the help of fans provided by the owner.

Matteo went out of his way to provide an extra fan for us when we asked.

We really enjoyed eating every meal al fresco. The outside dining area has a breathtaking view and it accommodated us all comfortably. The pool was essential and a refreshing break from the summer heat.

Matteo was a perfect host. He went out of his way to meet us upon arrival and was very helpful, providing us with places to see off the beaten track, local restaurants and wineries. He was always accessible. We enjoyed meeting all of his family. They made us feel very welcome.

Overall, this was a trip of a lifetime and we have already recommended it to friends and family. We hope to visit Matteo and this villa which felt like home to us in the near future.
