About Monique Weening

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

Why Monique Weening chose Piegaro

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!

What makes this villa unique

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.

Stunning location, all we could wished for

  • 5 of 5

It is even more beautiful in reality than the pictures and its got all the comfort and space one could wish for. Great large pool with large sunbeds and towels, lots to do and see in the region (Panicale, Assisi etc) but we loved the house and place so much, we hardly could get away from it. We'll be back!

Amazing stay at Casale Sento!

  • 5 of 5

We just came back from a one week stay at Casale Sento and had an amazing time. The villa is beautifully furnished and stocked with everything you could ever possibly need for your stay. The pool and pizza oven were especially fun to use. The villa also had extra amenities such as a baby crib, high chair, a kid’s swing that came in handy for our little one. The location for us was perfect - very peaceful up in the mountains but not too far from the nearest village (Tavernelle - 20 min) for groceries and a really nice coffee shop. This villa was also central to access many towns and villages in the area within an hour or less (e.g. Perugia, Assisi, Montepulciano, etc). Monique and Roland promotly answered any questions we had prior to booking and our arrival. Johanne and Graham were our points of contact on site and they were also great at answering any questions we had and making recommendations for things to do. If you do stay here make sure to read the binder which has a ton of information on things to do in the area and places to eat at, it also has some neat information/pictures about the history of Casale Sento. Would definitely return!

Back Again!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second year in a row staying at Casale Sento. The villa, and surrounding area is hard to beat for a wonderful, relaxing vacation. There is an opportunity to do as much, or as little as you choose, by accessing all the surrounding villages, cities and countryside. This trip we took advantage of all (well not all, but many) the wonderful restaurants Monique and Roland recommend in their very thorough "housebook".

With a little cool weather and rain at the beginning of our stay we were able to take advantage of the fireplace in the evenings, and then later in week had wonderful weather for sunsets on the covered patio. Villa is very comfortable for 4 couples, and the view, pool, outdoor living space is unbeatable.

As noted last year, one of the most comforting things about making arrangements and renting this villa is the communication from the owners, and their local representative Johanne. From initial inquiring, through the trip, they were most helpful. Johanne was able to secure a much desired reservation for us on the balcony at Masolino's well before we arrived, and is on top of everything. Coming from thousands of miles away, this level of communication is very reassuring.

We hope to return soon! Umbria is wonderful.

Enjoyable stay in the Umbria Country side

  • 5 of 5

We were very satisfied with the stay at Casale Sento. We enjoyed the country side and the view, the swimming pool was very popular. In the house the kitchen was well equipped and the facilities and the bedrooms were excellent. In the shops in Tavernelle we found good food.

We did visit lake Trasimeno, the city of Peruiga, and the outlet mall in Valdichiana. We also did run and walk along the roads in the mountains around the Villa. We also lay in the sun and enjoyed the heat. We got good information from the owners side.

Pictures can't do it justice!

  • 5 of 5

Could not have enjoyed it more. Visited from May 13-27, 2017. Time of year was great for visiting Umbria (before tourist crowds) and the spring foliage around the house and gardens was beautiful. What a setting...........the views from the house were spectacular, and the privacy was great.

Location was perfect for visiting Umbrian, and Tuscan, cities and points of interest. We loved some of the more off the map locations, and found some incredible places to dine - from the file at the house and some on our own. Almost any where you'd like to visit in Umbria is just a beautiful drive away.

House was wonderful. Had all the necessities, including fast internet for our younger family members! Plenty of room, and privacy for 3-4 couples. Sitting on the outdoor patio, watching the sun set, with wine/bread/cheese was spectacular. Lots of great outdoor spaces, with the patio, the pizza oven patio, and the pool area, too! Johanne, the local caretaker, was extremely helpful. She was available by phone or text to answer any questions we had, or set us off to a great restaurant (Bruno's in Citta del Pieve!).

Can't wait to go back! One thing that was very reassuring was the timeliness and quality of communication from the owner and caretaker. Spending money thousands of miles away, sight unseen, was made much less stressful by all the quick responses to all my questions from Monique and Johanne .

Owner's Response: Thank youJay, you have been wonderful guests. We love to give people an unforgettable holiday, so it is so good to hear you guys had a fabulous time! Bruno's in City della Pieve is indeed another great restaurant, so we'll add it to the file at the house. If you ever plan on returning, we are here and you can also have a look at our other house: villa Colle Lupo in Panicale. All the best, Monique and Roland

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.
