The location was perfect – deep in a beautiful countryside but in the same within quick and comfortable reach of the stunning cities of Perugia, Orvieto, Rome and Florence. We knew is going to be a hard work but we still enjoying every moment of it.

A memorable experience

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was perfect, just as described, and the owners were so kind and helpful. After being in small rooms in Rome and Sorrento my husband and I loved all the space in the apartment. My husband especially loved going out every morning and getting fresh eggs to cook for our breakfast. The location was perfect for day trips to other towns. But you definitely want to get back in time for the wonderful dinners offered by Franco and Bozena! We hope to return in the not too distant future.

Our family loved this place

  • 5 of 5

Our family enjoyed staying at this farm where we received a warm welcome and cozy impeccably clean bedrooms full of sunlight. We enjoyed , farm-grown eggs, fruits, and vegetables, and were impressed by a beautiful view of Italian landscapes and famous Montepulciano situated on the top of a hill. We liked the owners very much and decided to come back next time with friends as the farm is conveniently located near Perugia, Orvieto, and even Rome (which can be reached by train).

Outstanding Stay In The Countryside

  • 5 of 5

We totally loved our stay at Casa Regina and can't wait to come back. Franco and Beziana were wonderful hosts. Their English is impeccable and they are appropriately proud of their little slice of countryside in Umbria.

This is a great base for day trips and less than two hours from the Rome airport.

We strongly encourage that you consider experiencing Casa Regina. You will not be disappointed!

The best agriturismo you could ever stay at!

  • 5 of 5

Having Celiac disease, this was the best choice we could have ever made. The place had fresh organic veggies, fruits and eggs for us to pick as we pleased and we made awesome home made food. For those of you who can eat out with no problems, they also organize cooking classes and wonderful dinners.

The owners were absolutely delightful and very accommodating. The two apartments we rented were extremely clean and spacious. Once you understand the dynamics of the streets around it, everything is easy to get to. The supermarket (Coop) is right in the next town (Fabro) as well as plenty of other stores. The agriturismo has washing machines free for everyone to use and dish washers in the apartments. The pool was one of the cleanest we have ever seen. It was like being in Paradise! Grazie mille Bozena e Franco! Ci ritorneremo di sicuro!!

Relaxing, beautiful, luxurious and very affordable

  • 5 of 5

As we toured our 2-bedroom suite, with full kitchen, dining and living rooms and large bathroom, we could hardly believe our luck. This Agritourismo is a definite go-to! Franco and Bozana were very welcoming and helped to make our time there fun and interesting. From the veggie garden, to the canteen with fresh eggs, wine, olive oil, jam, etc to the make-your-own-pizza and pasta nights with some of the other guests. It was truly the highlight of our trip. All the beautiful hill towns are within a short drive and the pool is gorgeous! Just go!

Just what we dreamed of!

  • 5 of 5

This was our favorite place that we stayed during our wonderful Italian vacation! Everything exceeded the description and our expectations! Bozena was completely charming, genuine and helpful. She gave us a wonderful tour of the farm. We created a delicious meal from what we picked ourselves, right down to fresh flowers on the table. Franco created yet another great meal by utilizing saffron from the farm in his various dishes. The whole family made us feel very welcome and we really appreciated the help with our train tickets. The apartment was spacious, with modern conveniences, yet it took you back in time. The terraces were fabulous, with potted herbs right outside the French doors and sunsets with wine unforgettable. Being from Florida, we enjoyed the fireplace each night.

There are many walking paths from Casa Rondini . You can walk to Monte Arale and admire amazing views towards other medieval towns - Monteleone, Citta della Pieve and Parrano. If you like you walk even longer you can carry on to Greppolischieto – little medieval hamlet restored in the late 80s by Anna Fendi well known Italian fashion designer. Is a charming place and the view is fantastic. You can see Lake Trasimeno from there. If you happen to be there in late August and early September you can fill yourself with delicious blackberries. Other lovely walk is to Castel di Fiori. Is a good walk on the sunny days as you go mainly through the forest. Every year in August Castel di Fiori organise a week of Festa with food, dancing and stars watching. From there you can carry on your walk to Castellieri – enclosure turned to fortification since the bronze age and re-used in the Middle ages where some Roman tombs have also been found.
