Val di Rose is an ideal "far from the Madding Crowd" location because with Vincenzo and Monica on site we had the benefit of their proximity while being in the depths of the tranquil beautiful and genuine Umbrian countryside where some of us actually came across at night a pair of native porcupines (a truly rare sighting)!! The accomodation was welcomingly and thoughtfully rustic, clean, tidy, spacious, and well equipped - ideal for minimising the need for restaurants or eating out. The landscaped garden around the pool is magical and practical for maximising "al fresco" gatherings and meals. We were also fortunate that the garden fig trees were heavy with ripe fruit ready for eating with Italian charcuterie! On arrival, Vincenzo and Monica provided us with a freshly home baked cake, lasagna, and garden vegetables & fruit. We also enjoyed great pizzas prepared by them. Altogether a perfect Umbrian countryside holiday with helpful and very hospitable hosts. We would love to return.
Wir waren mit 3 Familien und insgesamt 12 Reisenden für 2 Wochen Gäste von Enzo und Monica. Es war eine wunderbare Zeit, in einem wunderschönen historischen Fleckchen Erde. Die Gastfreundschaft von Enzo's Familie ist grandios, so gab es am ersten Tag beispielsweise als Willkommensgeschenk frisches Obst und Gemüse aus dem eigenen Garten und eine Lasagne im Kühlschrank. Für Rat und Tat stand die Familie Cuomo auch stets zur Seite , ohne dabei aufdringlich zu sein. Ausflugsmöglichkeiten gibt es einige, und auch kleinere Lebensmittelläden, Bars sowie medizinische Versorgung (brauchten wir leider) stehen nur ein paar Autominuten entfernt zur Verfügung. Was auch optimal ist, dass jedes Zimmer sein eigenes Bad hat, was bei so vielen Personen echt praktisch ist. Ich kann diese Location aus tiefstem Herzen jedem empfehlen der etwas Ruhe haben will, aber dabei auch nicht allzuweit "weg vom Schuss" sein will. Wander- und Mountainbikemöglichkeiten gibt es der vielen .
Danach einen Sprung in das erfischende Wasser des gepflegten Pools... Herrlich...
La maison est très spacieuse, très propre et bien entretenue. Le jardin et la vue de la piscine sont magnifiques. Une délicieuse lasagne et un gâteau au chocolat nous attendaient à notre arrivée et le dernier jour, Enzo nous a préparé des pizzas. Merci encore pour l'accueil, nous avons passé d'excellentes vacances en Ombrie !
Enzo and his wife are the PERFECT Host and Hostess. We arrived to a wonderfully clean house and there was a CHOCOLATE CAKE made for us and a LASAGNE in the Fridge. A box of tomatoes waited us on the table, so wine and basic provisions.
The rooms (all en suite) were clean, cool and had good views.
Ours at the EAST end had a small balcony and the VIEW....breathtaking.
The outside area was Perfection, 3 sitting areas with tables and chairs or benches, though we preferred to eat "en famille" neare the pool.
There was a BBQ (which we did not need to use).
The Pool was cool as....
The garden was manicured.
The House had a spacious kitchen with 2 fridge/freezers (one under the stairs in MY OFFICE!)
The Clothes Washing machine was also under the stairs in MY OFFICE!
There was a DISH Washer in the kitchen, Micro, toaster, kettle, electric hand whisk (wand).
There was an indoor dining room (10-12) and seating area, next to the kitchen and cool in the evening, romatic by candle-light.
On our last evening Enzo and his wife made us PIZZA - 1 with mushrooms (funghi), one with tomato, one Marghertia (tomato and basil) and one plain (for a friend who had dietary needs).
They were perfect hosts and lived above us, so were always there to answer any questions.
Parking is outside but screened from the sun.
RECYCLING - always a problem in Italy in the past, but now 4 small bins in the house and 3 outside in the grounds.
NOTE: Italy uses 3 plugs - one for power and 2 for lighting (one small pin and a slightly larger pin)
There IS one unit in the kitchen which covers all three sizes. But check your appliances before leaving home. Adapters are available at most supermarkets.
THIS WAS THE MOST WONDERFUL PLACE TO STAY, Grazie Tanti famiglia Cuomo.

Nous avons passé une excellente semaine entre amis et enfants à Val di Rose. La maison est grande (nous étions 6 adultes et 7 enfants) et bien équipée. Le petit hameau est charmant et la vue magnifique. Les propriétaires sont super accueillants et discrets. Nous nous y sommes sentis vraiment à l'aise. De très belles vacances, merci Vicenzo!
Wonderful villa with loads of space for two families sharing a holiday. Vincenzo and his family were very welcoming and happy give us our privacy, but if we needed anything they were there. We had a delicious home cooked meal waiting for us on arrival, and fresh vegetables from the garden during our stay. Very memorable holiday and would definitely recommend - magic!
