Fantastic!

  • 5 of 5
The villa was absolutely beautiful, with lovely gardens, a great pool and stunning views. It is a detached location making it perfect to relax in and get away from it all. Massimiliano and his family were so friendly and accommodating, making sure we had enough food when we arrived and always being contactable for any help. All in all, a terrific stay!

AMAZING location, wonderful home, terrific hosts!

  • 5 of 5
Our family stayed here in early July of 2013. The house exceeded our expectations ten-fold!

The Cristofaris were gracious hosts. They drove out to the house from Rome to welcome us, show us around the place, and make recommendations for places to visit during our stay. They returned a week later to say Goodbye and to offer remarkably specific directions to help us find our way back into central Rome.

The house is amazing. It looks out over a valley and offers countless different spaces to rest, relax, and visit. We dined al fresco each evening and used the wonderful swimming pool during the hot afternoons. The house has thick walls and plenty of windows so it's always comfortable inside.

We had such a wonderful time staying here and would gladly return every year if we could!

The holiday of a lifetime

  • 5 of 5
This was the perfect location for a relaxing and luxurious break. We arrived and were greeted by Max, who provided a thorough introduction to the property. His clear instructions meant that we had arrived at the property easily and it was soon clear that the property was as wonderful as the previous reviews.

The house is beautiful and well off the beaten track, so privacy is not a concern. It was immaculately clean and well stocked for a group of food-lovers and ex-chefs. Although we did venture out to nearby Assissi and Orvieto (both stunning) we were happiest floating in the pool planning our pizza evenings (the wood-fired oven was a real treat).

The house and grounds are large enough for a group of six to enjoy time together and time spent apart, with lots of places to sit and appreciate the wonderful view from different angles.

The town of Marcsiano is only a five minute drive away and has plenty of shops (including our now favourite Conad) and a market on Saturday.

I have already recommended this property to friends and family and hope to return very soon.

It is as lovely as it looks in the pictures! If not better.
Michelle, Frank and friends

Owner's Response: ...ex Chefs?! ...now I understand why you were able to use the pizza oven: among you there were pros!

An Italian Countryside Vacation

  • 5 of 5
We could not have chosen a more beautiful home to stay in during our two week vacation in Umbria. The farmhouse was a treasure. It is nestled in the hills outside town providing us with continual vistas everywhere we looked. From the bedrooms, to the living area, the stone porches, pool…everywhere we gazed was a picture perfect view of the Umbrian countryside! The pool was absolutely wonderful and we spent many hours floating around with wine in hand! There are all the necessary pool "extras" to make everyone happy! Max, the owner, provided us with all the necessary information, was there upon our arrival and had a young man to take care of the grounds and pool everyday who was incredibly helpful as well. Max always responded immediately to emails and was prompt in answering all questions. He made certain we had all his contact information and was available by phone anytime of day. We took full advantage of the outdoor kitchen using both the stone oven to make pizza and cooked on the barbecue almost every evening. We had all our meals under the arbor by the pool and occasionally chose to sit on the other side of the farmhouse where we enjoyed a few dinners on a stunning stone covered porch What was there not to like? The kitchen was well equipped with everything a cook could possibly need. Max even provided us with some groceries for our first night, as we were arriving very late and he knew we would not have an opportunity to buy groceries. There were plenty of dishes, linens and towels. The farmhouse is centrally located with easy access to major Italian cities. Needless to say, we were staying in a farmhouse, so we weren't able to walk out the door and be in the center of a quaint Italian village, but if you are searching for a perfect farmhouse in the Umbrian countryside this would be exactly what you are looking for. There are several charming villages within a five minute drive from the farmhouse which suited us perfectly. It is a picture perfect farmhouse that created the makings for an idyllic Umbrian country vacation for us. We would return in a heartbeat!
