Great apartment and location

  • 4 of 5

Had a wonderful stay and enjoyed all that Montefalco and the surrounding areas had to offer. Lots of wineries and sites to see and we were able to live like a local for a week in this beautiful region of Italy. The only recommendation I have would be to verify with the owner ahead of your stay if there will be access to the pool. We booked this placed based off the pool photos and courtyard being available and it was not when we checked in. The owner did make another pool available to us at a different property but it was not the experience we were hoping for. Other than that our stay was perfect and the property manager was very accommodating even with our language barrier.

Could be so much better

  • 1 of 5

The apartment was well located in the village but like so many others, we had an awful time finding it. When I finally located our greeter, she was less than helpful and impatient. She speaks only Russian and Italian - no English whatsoever. The apartment was lacking, especially in the kitchen - single cup stovetop percolator, utensils in a plastic bin on the floor unsealed, freezer didn't work etc. There were absolutely no instructions in the apartment that were in English - Italian only, except for the last line encouraging us to give them a great review. There was no internet or television, even though we contacted the owner and he promised to have it fixed. There was an ironing board but no iron, hair dryer did not the proper adapter, the tile was falling off the shower, pot light were burnt out. The outdoor garden was overgrown and all the walkways were covered in moss, making it a very slippery walk. The pool was not open even though the weather was great. Francesco finally showed up late on our last of 5 days and was rather arrogant. He thought he could give us a tour of his "palace" to make amends.

Owner's Response: Dear Nancy, here in Italy we say that "the world is beautiful because it is varied" and you are the proof of this variety: in many years of activity (more than ten) you are the first person to send such a negative review. Another proverb: try it to believe! It will be enough, in fact, that you read the many reviews we have for our apartments. Specifically: 1) the "well-leased" apartment is not like "many others" being the only one with the garden and the swimming pool in the center of the village. It is very easy to find it: small country with very few facilities inside. The lady who welcomed you does not speak English very well (absolutely true but, it is not a fault) and is very kind and knows how to be understood well. The pool is open from the second half of June because until that time the wether is not good in the Apennines: it can rain and it is still cold. 2) crockery are in a plastic container; not on the floor, but on the sink. The refrigerator works normally while the freezer is not there because for short periods we did not consider it necessary. But, we like advice and suggestions and we will do that. 3) Our apartments are equipped with TV (even with satellite for foreign guests) and internet: it can happen that due to bad weather the signal has problems. The apartments are equipped with iron and the relative table. The hair dryer does not need any adapter ... it is necessary to use it and not hair dryer that could have a different grip compared to the Italian ones. 4) When it rains, it can create moss on the bricks of the garden-floor that disappears immediately after the end of the rain. 5) I often let guests visit my house (a Renaissance Palace) who show to like the visit; but ... "the world is beautiful because it is varied". Anyway, I am sorry you didn't like your stay in our apartment. Best wishes, Francesco.

Spacious, private, and beautiful lodging in heart of lovely medieval Montefalco

  • 5 of 5

We loved our lodging in Montefalco, both because the Benozzo apartment and its terrace were lovely and because the town was a wonderful, charming, and quiet place to stay for visiting Umbria. The apartment is restored space true to the medieval roots of the building and town; it is very nicely furnished, clean, secure, private, and well-appointed. We discovered two really good restaurants - Foresteria Alzatura and Coccorone, each a short walk from the apartment. The first was particularly good, with outstanding, original dishes. I recommend that the traveler get clear directions in advance from the host about how and where to meet, with a good pdf map of Montefalco and the location of the gate and apartment. There are four gates (Portas) to this tiny town with some very narrow streets and sharp turns. GPS alone may not get you to the right spot. Once we figured it out, we had no problem using this spot as a jumping off point to visit other locations in Umbria. We would strongly recommend it.

A lovely restful place to stay

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect place to stay with 2 small children and enjoy Umbria and Montefalco. The apartment is beautiful and the pool and shaded courtyard were a delightful retreat from the intense afternoon sun. Benozzo is close to the main plaza where the girls could run around while we sat at an outside cafe to enjoy a late afternoon glass of wine. The apartment is comfortable and roomy.

It would have been helpful if a few things such as laundry detergent and some olive oil were stocked in the unit. We had to buy both for just one use.

I will stay at Benozzo again when I am in the area.

Repos, tranquilité, charme,...

  • 5 of 5

Pour la troisième fois à Montefalco, pour la deuxième fois à Arco Romanico! La vieille ville de Montefalco est magnifique pour y rester au moins une semaine. C'est charmant, les gens sont accueuillants, les restos sont très bons. Nous sommes venus cette année avec nos deux enfants de 4 ans et 1 ans. Pour eux c'est génial. Il n'y a quasi pas de voitures dans le centre et dans les petites ruelles, il y a beaucoup d'ombre. Ils peuvent marcher et jouer librement. En été il y a la piscine...

Depuis Montefalco il faut très peut de temps pour arriver dans d'autres villes magnifiques et différentes: Trevi, Bevagna, Foligno, Spoleto,... Sympa pour les enfants et idéal pour les parents question culture et gastronomie.

Il ya deux ans nous étions dans l'appartement Perugino. C'était très bien. Cette fois ci nous étions dans Benozzo. Celui-ci est légèrement plus grand mais à mon sence plus agréable car plus lumineux. L'appartement et le patio sont forts agréables. On se sent vraiment dans le centre d'un endroit très pittoresque.

Nous avons été accueuilli chaleureusement a une heure assez tardive. Tout était prévu pour notre fille d'un ans. Ce n'est pas le tout grand luxe mais ce n'est pas pour cela que nous venons. Le charme de la maison est énorme.

Nous remercions Francesco le propriétaire pour sa flexibilité! (Nous n'avons pas su venir l'année passée et il nous a gardé notre réservation, tout a été fait pour accueuillir nous deux enfants, nous sommes venus un jour plus tôt que prévu et la nuit nous a été offert gracieusement.)

Ciao Francesco, nous reviendrons une 3ième fois avec certitude!
