Pool / Spa
Cancelled bookings will not receive a refund.
We thoroughly enjoyed two weeks at Casa Stella. The house was welcoming and comfortable and felt safe and homely from the start. The hospitality of Domenica and his family was exceptional and they really took excellent care of the house and the pool for you. Their generosity with things from their garden was so kind and thoughtful.The views from the pool are absolutely stunning, we were sad to leave and would recommend it very highly.
Lieti del fatto che vi siate sentiti come a casa vostra, speriamo di rivederci il prossimo anno . Un caloroso saluto a voi e tante, tante grazie . Ciao da tutta la famiglia
A beautiful property run by a lovely family in the middle of the Umbrian countryside.
A perfect base to explore Umbria with hour, hour and a half trips to Assisi, Gubbio, Orvieto, etc. Absolutely gorgeous setting and surroundings. The house is well-maintained and has everything one needs to have a relaxing holiday. It’s advisable someone in your party speaks some basic Italian to communicate with the hosts. We visited in September and needed bug repellent as mosquitoes were everywhere. Other than that perfecto!
A peaceful, amazing location, well appointed accommodation and well looked after by Dominico
We were a party of four. Arrived late Saturday evening after a long drive from Pisa airport, eventually located the villa as darkness was upon us, the property sign was not easily located. Dominico guided us around the accommodation and we soon settle in with the help of a few glasses of wine. Wow, what a surprise next morning, a lovely warm sunny day and a walk around the grounds revealed a pool located on its own terrace with far reaching views across truly magnificent countryside (this view was not visible on arrival but our host had shown us the pool). A bonus for us was the morning chorus of frogs and birds, especially nice was the call of the nightingale and the screeching of the swifts, sounds that are becoming rare in the UK.
The kitchen is very well equipped and spacious enough for us to work together in preparing meals. Local fresh food was purchased from the Conad supermarket located neat Trestina (approx 9km away). The lounge was enormous and the main bedroom vast. We were located in the upstairs room and despite having two single beds, we were able to push them together. Bathrooms were well appointed. Fresh fruit and vegetables by far better than that purchased at our UK supermarkets). Our weather was mixed but spurred us into visiting 4 places of interest - Cortona, Gubbio, Citta di Castello and Castiglione del Lago - all offering attractive walled towns with many churches with impressive fresco's and places to eat. May was early for perfect weather and the pool was cool but I was always in for at least 2 - 3 swims a day, not so for all our party.
If you wish for peace and quiet, beautiful scenery and ability to drive to attractive towns (without too many tourists!), plus have a spacious, clean property and an attentive host then this is the property for you.
Dominico supplied us one evening with some freshly picked broad beans that where delicious with our homemade risotto. Additionally, he cleaned the pool every morning, checked with us that all was OK and presented us with a scrumptious gateaux.
A fantastic find.
Grazie mille, siete stati degli ospiti veramente cordiali ed affabili. Quando questo accade , è veramente un piacere fare l' host !!! Un saluto vero, sentito da Domenico
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the villa near Citta de Castillo! To begin with, the entire family is wonderful! Domenico is the father and is right next door to take care of any problems and sweep every day and tend the pool every day. As a result, the property is clean and tidy. Everything was in excellent repair. The view is expansive over the hills of Umbria, and the drive to Assissi, Perugia, Pisa, Orvieto, and Gubbia were easy and very enjoyable. The kitchen is well-equipped and towels and other amenities were provided. The value is excellent. Highly recommended! Ken Miller

Merveilleux sejour en toscane dans une maison merveilleuse de caractere
La paix et l’harmonie.
C’est une maison exceptionnelle. Elle est très bien située, très confortable et aménagé de façon élégant et chic. Plusieurs baux objets d’art à l’intérieur et un environnement magnifique et fonctionnelle à l’extérieur. De plus très jolies villes à la proximité. Nous avons aimé beaucoup notre séjour chez Domenico, qui fait tout pour que nous gardions les bons souvenirs de notre séjour de deux semaines en avril 2018. Et il a réussi, merci Domenico! Nous recommandons cette maison à tout le monde, mais surtout aux personnes qui aiment la paix et l’harmonie.
