We had a wonderful holiday, perfect House and surroundings. Perfect with the pool.
We were between 8 and 16 adults and 4 children - worked absolutely fine. The owners, Daniela with family, are very nice an helpful. The area is beautiful.
Let me start by saying what wonderful and helpful people Daniela and her family are! The accommodations could not have been more perfect for our family (my husband, myself, and our 4 children), my mother-in-law, and my parents. So that was 9 people total and we never felt the least bit crowded. There was plenty of space for us to convene as a large group, but at the same time, we each had our own quiet, private space to retreat to when we needed. It was too cool for us to use the pool, but it was very tempting!
We picked this location specifically because we could use it as a home base and explore Florence, Siena, and Assisi each in a separate day trip. It worked beautifully. We gained a true cultural experience by exploring the village of Ficulle, using our minimal knowledge of the Italian language, hand motions, and the friendly people's eager helpfulness.
100% recommend Casale Rotanselva!!
*Note: We actually stayed here in 2013, but it wouldn't let me input that date.
Wonderful and Relaxing environment
Rotanseva is an “Agritourismo” in a bucolic environment with views of the countryside. My wife and I vacationed at Rotanselva for three weeks in late Spring and had a memorable, comfortable and relaxing time. The main house and cottage accommodated our family of 13 with ease and complete privacy for us, our adult children and grandchildren (ages 3 to 13). The swimming pool was cleaned daily by Roberto.
The town of Ficulle was a picturesque walled medieval village having a marvelous restaurant with local food. However, be prepared to enjoy a leisurely dinner.
Travel by train was easy. From the station, only 7 kilometers from Rotanselva, trains go directly into the center of both Florence and Rome.
The Etruscan city of Orvieto (22,000 people, approximately 15 kilometers down the Autostrada) offered an underground necropolis dating back to the 6th century BC., as well as many wonderful shops, museums, and restaurants.
Sienna was also easily accessed by rail; however, we drove to enjoy the countryside.
All in all, we would recommend Rotanselva as a destination in Central Italy facilitating easy access to other historic Italian cities and sites.
The only negative was the 1.8 kilometer State maintained dirt road from Ficulle to Rotanselva which needed extensive repair.
We found the owners, Daniella and Roberto, genuinely gracious, easily accessible and dedicated to providing their “guests” a comfortable and friendly environment.
Thanks for this review! It was a plasure for us having you as our guests in rotanselva and we are extremly happy knowing you ejoied your holliday ...
The countryroad is on the way to be repaired by the comune in this wintermoths we suppose. As it is a pubblic road we have to wait untill they decide to do the works . We had really bad rain last winter and this was the couse of many problems on our contryroads in ficulle and Orvieto area.
The dream come true
Magnificent, beautiful and big house! Owners decorated the house with great love and attention to small details. We felt right at home. The beautiful countryside around makes you forget about all and enjoy the life.We have visited Siena, Montepulciano and Lake Trasimeno. We have visited a winery, where local wine have tasted.
The owners are very welcoming and kind people. We are very happy that met them. Daniela - the owner of the house - unique person. She knows many languages, so there were no problems with communication. It was a memorable evening organized by Daniela, when her son and his friend (both professional chefs) gave us master class on the Italian cuisine. It was fun and perfectly.
Daniela, thanks a lot to you and your family for a wonderful holiday.
Elena, Vadim, Oleg, Denis, Oksana, Sergey and Egor.

The Two evenings spend togher where really special!
My son and his friend where so happy to stay with you and also Roberto .... Thanks again for The time spend together! It was an honor to have e you as our Guests :-)
Lovely and huge house in beautiful countryside...we stayed here with nine people and far more space than we needed...good pool, clean, good facilities (table tennis pool table, well stocked kitchen - we made our own pasta! etc). Quite a long unpaved track from the town but not really a problem even in our rubbish rental cars. Owner extremely nice, helpful and easy-going...recommended a couple of bars in town and the pool was cleaned every morning. Taverna restaurant in Ficulle good, but funny opening times. Good agri-tourismo half way to Fabro too, but hard to find - there's a turning on the right that looks like a golf course. Only slight downside is that it is next to a working farm so quite noisy in the early morning - overall though a great place to stay, good views and relaxing holiday.
We thank this nice and friendly group for their pleasent stay and for the review!
I thing it is helpfull to read the experiences of other people before choosing !
Many thanks for your kind attention
Umbrien für Genießer
Wunderschönes Landhaus, dass mit viel Liebe zum Detail individuell eingerichtet ist und sich in einem sehr guten Zustand befindet.
Das Anwesen liegt auf einem großen, gepflegten Grundstück und besteht aus 2 Gebäuden (2. Gebäude Appartement) und hat uns (6 Erwachsene und 6 Kinder) sehr viel Platz und einen herrlichen Blick über und in die Landschaft Umbriens geboten.
Die vorher gemachten Angaben stimmten zu 100% und die Räume, die Gebäude und das Grundstück sind geräumiger als es auf den Fotos erscheint.
An der Ausstattung und den Zimmern gab es, bis auf wenige vernachlässigbare Kleinigkeiten, nichts auszusetzen und haben unsere Erwartungen übertroffen.
-Pool ist weiträumig mit einem Zaun umgeben (ohne das man dieses großartig merkt), was für Eltern mit kleinen Kindern von Vorteil ist.
-W-Lan Anschluß vorhanden und funktioniert tadellos
-toller Pool, der täglich gereinigt wurde
-Liegen am Pool und genügend überdachte/beschattete Sitzgelegenheiten
-Anfahrt erfolgt über Schotterstraße (ca. 2 km) von Ficulle
Von der Anfrage bis zur Abreise erfolgte eine sehr kompetente, hilfsbereite und herzliche Betreuung der sehr gut deutschsprechenden Anbieterin.
Fazit: Ein wunderschönes Landhaus mit viel Charme zum genießen, in dem man sich sofofrt heimisch fühlt und dass wir (Erwachsene + Kinder) zu 100% empfehlen können!!
Orvieto: toller Ort mit vielen schönen Gassen, Gebäuden und Dom. Allerdings sind die Höhlen dort nicht so interessant. (ca. 30 - 40 Min.)
Lago Bolsena: Schöner See zum Baden oder Bootfahren (ca. 1 h)
Montepulciano: laut Aussage unserer weiblichen Teenager Drehort zu Szenen aus "twighlight 2" bei der Piazza. Aufstieg erfolgt über eine sehr schöne Straße mit vielen Weingeschäften (Toskana ca. 40 Min)
Ficulle: Eisdiele mit super leckerem selbstgemachtem Eis, schöne Keramiken im Zentrum. Turm Samstags und Sonntags von 10.30 bis 12.30 Uhr geöffnet
Assisi, Perugia und vieles mehr.....
The villa is located near the castle la Sala about 15 km from Orvieto, an important historical old city with a cathedral and fountain and it is surrounded by vineyards and olive trees.
Collect truffles, Zafferan constructions and olive oil production in the house.
Other Activities: Off road paths with jeeps or 4-wheelers
