Casale Sento is a beautifully renovated and very comfortable villa with stunning views of the Umbrian hills and Lake Trasimeno. With 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms sleeping 8 to 10 people (e.g. 2 families with kids), spacious living areas, a large and very complete kitchen, 3 hectares of land and a relaxing, private pool, Sento is the perfect place to enjoy and explore Umbria and Tuscany. Unlike many other villa's in Italy that are often dark and poorly furnished, Casale Sento is finished to a very high standard with light, modern and quality furniture, design bathrooms and plenty of extra's like a dishwasher, washing machine, dryer, satellite TV, DVD's, books, board games, mountain bikes, BBQ, extra large sun loungers etc.
Florence, Perugia, Siena, Assisi, Orvieto, Gubbio, Spoleto and Cortona are all within easy reach, making Casale Sento the perfect holiday villa for people who like privacy and comfort and at the same time want to be centrally located to explore Umbria and Tuscany!
We are a Dutch family of 5 (me, my husband and our 3 sons), who have lived in many countries, Italy being one of them. We have lived for 5 years in Rome and decided to buy our family holiday home in Umbria. After two years of extensive restoration works, we can finally call it our dream house and we take much pleasure in sharing its joy with others.
Monique Weening purchased this villa in 2002
This place has unforgettable views and sunsets and the valley breathes an incredible peace and tranquility. You have full privacy as there are no neighbours, yet you are centrally located and close to all necessary amenities and some great restaurants. This place is simply bliss!
We've travelled a lot ourselves and found that many holiday properties in Italy and other countries are often dark and poorly furnished, have cheap fixtures and fittings and showers with little water pressure etc.
We wanted to create a light interior with new and high quality furniture and fittings. A place where you will feel at home and where care is taken of every aspect of your holiday.
We stayed at Casale Sento the last week of Sept 2016 and had a wonderful time! The house is absolutely beautiful and very tastefully decorated. The views were amazing! We were able to relax all week and forget what day it was; which to me is a sign of a great vacation. The pizza oven was alot of fun to use and we were able to make some delicious meals. We took some days trips to Perugia, Assisi, Panicale and Lake Trasimeno. We also went to Country House Montali (about a 20 min drive) for the best vegetarian meal any of our group has ever had! It's highly rated and deservedly so. Each day we went for long hikes along the road & countryside and the views were out of this world! I would highly recommend staying at Casale Sento and look forward to our next visit!
We were 7 people , 3 generation of a family and everybody had a great time . The house is beautiful, well maintained and has everything you need. The pool is great , and the scenery is so relaxing . We saw some outstanding sunsets.
We had a lovely dinner at home with chef Mattia and Nonie and went to some very good restaurants at Citta della Pieve.
We made day trips to Orvieto , Lago Trasimeno and Assisi.
We loved every minute and would be happy to come back....
Wonderful! We spent 10 days at Sento, and it was fantastic. The home is spacious and well appointed. Plenty of room for our large family of 9. The room that overlooks the valley is especially neat. It was a perfect place to retreat and relax during our two month European travels. The Wheelings were very pleasant to work with, even mailing our watch which we had left behind. Johanne was very accommodating, as we were late arriving to the house upon check in. The kitchen is well stocked and all the comforts of modern convenience is found at the house. We enjoyed the Italian countryside, especially the nearby hilltop town of Panicale. So much to visit within an hour's drive, even more if you are willing to drive two hours. Great customer service, highly recommend---would stay again. Thank you so much!
What can I say .We came here may/June this year for my wifes 40th birthday. We had the most amazing time, the house was as described and beautifully maintained. Johanne was very helpful and gave us valuable information about the surrounding area and local restaurants. A car is a nessessity being 20 minutes away from the local town and shops, but this made it perfect for us as it was quiet and there was no risk of us disturbing our neighbours!
The house, gardens and surrounding area of umbria is amazing and when we win the euro lotto I will be sure to make Monique an offer she can't refuse.
We were seven friends from Stockholm that got a relaxing and wonderful week. The house has good standard and has lots of space. The house and garden has several places for dining outside. Big pool to enjoy. We never wanted to leave this place and stayed there most of the days.
Our week at Casale Sento was a slice of heaven! The villa is magnificent, plenty spacious for our family of 8. The view is incredible, many places to hang out including the lovely private pool. It was close enough to get to little villages and markets, but we really loved just being there! Very clean and well maintained, and stocked with necessities, and nice amenities like CD's, cookbooks, dishwasher and washing machine. The grounds are gorgeous with all the flowers and grapevine on the patio. We hated to leave!
Umbria is also known as the ‘green heart’ of Italy. The beautiful landscape is a mixture of gently sloping hills, forests, rivers and lakes. The region has all the charm of Tuscany, but is less crowded with tourists. Umbria is famous for its truffles, cheeses and wines. The Lake Trasimeno area is characterized by the ancient, picturesque towns around the shores of the popular lake, as well as by the attractive hill-top villages in its vicinity. Casale Sento is situated near one of these villages (5km) and can be reached by a good road of which the last 500m is gravel. Right outside the house you can make great walks, or take one of the mountain bikes and enjoy the stunning scenery. Alternatively, visit nearby wine estates or antique markets, wander through magnificent Assisi, or Perugia. Discover the hill towns around Lake Trasimeno, or go swimming in the lake. If you are adventurous, you can go rafting on the river Nera, or you can play golf at the Perugia Golf club.
