Get away from it all

  • 5 of 5

This is a fabulous get away from it all place. It is quite simply stunning scenery and peaceful beyond belief! Andrea was an excellent host and very quick to get back with any enquiries.The property is beautiful and well equipped. The kitchen is a kitchenette but we knew that from other reviews and you can still do enough cooking on the hob. There is no oven. That said, there are plenty of local culinary options. The people in the hamlet, and it is a hamlet are very friendly but equally will leave you to you own devices. A great place to stay.

Stunning views and quiet

  • 5 of 5

This house is on the edge of a small village 30 minutes from Spoleto. It is extremely well kept and entirely private. From the back terrace, you have stunning, unobstructed views up a very steep, wooded river valley -- very dramatic. The house itself is clean and well-appointed. There are two bedrooms, one with a double bed and one with two twin beds. The kitchen is a bit small, but serviceable, and we were able to make what we needed without a problem: pasta, salad, wine, coffee, all of which we ate on the terrace. We explored a few of the trails in the area, which were interesting (I am told that there is an actual hermit living some ways above the village -- shades of Arcadia -- but we didn't see him). Having somewhat limited time, we also used the house as a base to see some of the great sights of the area, such as Casteluccio which (don't quote me on this: I was enjoying the scenery and we stopped for lunch in Norcia) is about an hour away in the Parco dei Monti Sibillini -- a gorgeous spot. Andrea and his cousin Paolo couldn't have been more helpful or more unobtrusive. Hope you enjoy their house as much as we did.

Beautiful house, excellent location

  • 5 of 5

Lovely house with lots of original features. Amazing location if you want to get away from it all and enjoy nature. A spectacular view from the terrace - a lovely way to start the day. The house was very clean and had everything we needed. As it says in the description, there is a kitchenette not a kitchen but this has all the basics you need. Andrea, the owner, was really helpful and there was great contact before and during the stay. Would definitely recommend this place!

Un petit gîte plein de charme

  • 5 of 5

Un superbe petit gîte avec beaucoup de charme et une vue superbe sur les gorges et la montagne. Le petit jardin était vraiment très agréable pour prendre le petit déjeuner et diner. L'accueil d'Andrea et la gentillesse des habitants du village étaient vraiment appréciables et nous avons passé un excellent séjour ! Côté pratique, la literie était très confortable et la salle de bain très propre et bien aérée. Le coin cuisine permet de se faire des salades ou des pâtes, ce qui est bien suffisant en été... les enfants ont beaucoup apprécié de pouvoir se balader dans le petit village en toute liberté. Un très bon souvenir pour toute la famille.

The fortified villages of Castellonalto and Castellonbasso born to protect the Abbey of San Pietro in Valle guarding the ancient trade route linking the Papal States and the Kingdom of the Two Sicilies.

the village of Catellonalto passed unscathed the destruction of the building as 50-60 years until the '70s could only be reached with a mule.

Although not the subject of a systematic intervention in urban renewal, has significant elements of interest and an absolutely tight to the original urban pattern.

In the '70s this village housed over 300 people living in autarky almost full, they are today little more than a dozen residents and constitute the historical memory of the country, the living museum of a way of life that will soon no longer exist anymore.
