LA CASETTA (SLEEPS 2, 1 BEDROOM)

Gubbio Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Our family home has 3 apartments: The Owl sleeps up to 8 and the Rabbit is ideal for 4. La Casetta nestling in the vineyard is perfect for 2. We make organic wine from our vineyard which all our guests enjoy. Sociable circular pool with spectacular views over mountains and forests with plenty of comfortable sunbeds to relax on. Italian English owners, Luigi and Maria, can advise on family restaurants, places to visit and even show you how to make pasta!

Our home, Domus Nova, is near the lovely city of Gualdo Tadino, in the green heart of Umbria, home to one of the top 100 most beautiful castles in all of Italy. Assisi, Gubbio, Spello and Perugia are all within easy reach. Mountain walks with lovely views where you can even grill a few sausages on one of the stone barbeques found up there! Children can enjoy theme parks, cave visits and rafting close by. May & June see wonderful wild orchids and other wild flowers of rare beauty. September & October are ideal for sightseeing and walking. You will love our pool with amazing views over rolling hills and the majestic Appenine mountains. There are 2 pool terraces, one with an umbrella and one for sun-worshippers. We make our own wine from our terraced vineyard and everyone enjoys the homemade jams, chutneys and vinegar we provide too. A holiday at Domus Nova is good for families or groups of friends. Lots to do in the area but you can do as much or as little as you like! Luigi can teach you how to make pasta and the perfect sauce to go with it! Sometimes we all eat together. As each apartment has its own independent entrance and terrace there is no feeling of being on top of each other. Maria & Luigi are always on hand to give advice (from where to eat the best pizza to where to find free parking!) to help you enjoy your holiday to the full!

In fact, you can do as much or as little as you want! The beds all have new mattresses and everyone always comments on what a good night's sleep they have here. If you need anything, just ask! Air-conditioning is not needed as the house remains cool inside. There is also a cot and highchair available. If you come in winter, heating is available at extra cost. This is our home and we are always on hand to help in any way we can as regards walks, festivals, family restaurants, best places to park, mountain and grotto visits, etc. In each apartment there is a 'book' with useful information on places to visit and restaurants to try. We have drawn simple maps and photocopied them so you can take a copy with you when visiting the different places.

Further Details:

Umbria, the green heart of Italy, is justly famous for its olive oil, wine, ceramics and good value restaurants where you can enjoy simple tasty Umbrian cuisine. Bring walking shoes to discover the mountain areas with wild flowers and alpine strawberries. You'll need a jumper to visit the Frassasi caves which are world reknown for their stalagmite and stalagtite formations. Horse riding is just up the road and tennis courts 5 minutes away. There is every possible amenity (banks, ATMs, supermarkets, etc.) within easy reach of Domus Nova and on your arrival you will find homemade jam, vinegar, chutney and our biological wine waiting for you. The local market on Thursdays is a good place to find locally grown vegetables and fruit. Gualdo's historical centre is worth a look around with small family-run shops and its many museums including the castle Rocca Flea. In the evening, the main square is nice to visit maybe to listen to a concert, enjoy an aperitif or eat an ice cream. Tap water is drinkable coming straight off the mountains.

Everyone finds it relaxing.

  • 5 of 5
Umbria is an absolutely beautiful place to visit, like a more countryfied version of Tuscany.
As soon as I read Maria's description I knew that I wanted to stay in their Casetta. It was lovely, clean and bigger than I thought it would be. Unfortunately the previous tenant had managed to melt the 4 ring cooker knobs but Luigi had provided 2 ring electric plates and had bought the most amazing halogen cooker that could even bake bread. I am sure that the cooker will be reinstated as soon as it can be mended.
The Casetta is more secluded than the other units which suited me. The pool was delightful. It's 4 ft deep which is all that is needed, unless you want to perfect your diving. I loved it because it is possible to swim looking at the mountains which is exhilarating.
Maria and Luigi are brilliant hosts. They have superb taste and boundless enthusiasm for recommending activities, destinations, guide books places to eat and drink, travel details and anything you ask them.
They have the knack knowing whether to leave you in peace or invite you to their families Pizza party. The Pizzas cooked in their home pizza oven where subtle crisp and delicious as they were at Maria's favourite pizza restaurant to which we made a visit for our last evening.
Gualdo Tadiino is an excellent location for exploring Medieval Umbria, Gubbio Perugia and the spectacular hill towns of Spello, Spoletto etc around Perugia.
His home made wine jams and vinegar were delicious and freely provided. The garden is full of aromatic herbs. Luigi even showed us how to make fabulous home made pasta. So delicious that I have to buy my own machine.
I would definitely recommend a visit to any member of my family or friends.
I didn't dislike anything. The local people were extremely friendly and their food, even if you are self catering is fabulous.
I read through their visitors' book which is catalogue of well deserved praise. Everyone finds Domus Nova relaxing and enjoyable.

Great stay at Domus Nova

  • 5 of 5
We had an amazing ten day stay at Domus Nova,upon arrival we were greeted by luigi and Maria.The accomodation was very clean and beautifully decorated with all the charm of an Italian farm house but with the modern touches that we can't live without.The wifi and home made wine and jam were a much appreciated bonus.The view from the windows is so special (the photos do not do it justice)the hillsides and farms over Umbria,not to mention Maria's beautiful garden(she has inspired me) and Luigi's vineyard and swimming pool.There is so much to see and do Maria and Luigi are great if you need advice,walking trails ,nearby village's etc.There is a bus that comes just two minutes up the road and takes you to Gualdo Tadino(a short ride)from there you can catch a bus or train to other places not far away a must see is Spello,Assisi,Gubbio,Perugia is about a two hour bus ride.The local restaurants were fantastic,Umbrian food...yummm.But if you need to stay in and relax by the pool,not a problem as the apartment is fully equipped so you can cook up a storm with all the fresh produce from the nearby market.All in all it is a great location,a stunning Umbrian property,we can't wait to come back (maybe next time in winter).

Thank you so much Luigi and Maria for allowing us to stay in your special house,

Jenny and Lou

Owner's Response: Dear Jennifer & Lou

Really nice to hear from you both. Luigi and I are so glad you enjoyed your holiday here with us! Thanks for all the nice compliments which you had already written in our visitors book. We do try to make everyone's holiday here at Domus Nova special. You mention you may come back in the winter. The weather doesn't get really cold until December and although the days are shorter, the weather is bright and pleasant. Good for walks and sightseeing! We have had a lot of really nice people staying this year, both families and couples like yourselves. Our garden looks stunning this year as we had so much winter rain and it has really 'filled out'. It was full of wild orchids in May and June! The family that left this morning had 2 young boys and they were so delighted yesterday as they found a big green praying mantis by the pool! We also had a fantastic pizza making party with all our guest last week. They wrote all about in the visitors book! Hope you are both keeping well and hope to see you again in the near future. Kind regards, Maria & Luigi
