Everything is fine, the weather is nice, pool is great, just cleaned on Monday. Lovely towns in the neighbourhood with great restaurants. We are having our holidays in Italy for over 15 years and this is one of the best.

The perfect getaway!

  • 5 of 5
We absolutely loved this house!
We were 3 families (10 people) renting both the houses for 2 weeks and couldn’t be happier!
The houses are very well planned and spacious, both inside and outside, with a feeling of complete privacy thanks to the miles-wide unobstructed view of the wonderful Umbrian landscape.
The pool area is just wonderful with a big beautiful pool and a lot of sun beds and shaded areas under the trees.
We enjoyed lazy days by the pool and late night barbecue dinners under the grapevines. We also went exploring the nearby villages of Orivieto, Cortona and Montepulciano which are absolutely must-see
if you are in the area!
Ken and Danica are great hosts; The communication was swift and easy, and they provide you with a binder with a lot of helpful and inspirational information.
You can see that they really care about their guests and want them to have the best possible stay - thank you!

Perfect place for large family vacation

  • 5 of 5
We stayed one week to celebrate our family's Italian heritage - The houses and property exceeded all of our expectations. We had 12 people in our group. The house was very spacious, the kitchen had everything we needed (even had cooking class one day), the rooms we very spacious and the bathrooms modern (whew! :). The property and view we beautiful and the pool was definitely utilized heavily. The book of information was very helpful to find places close by to each and grocery shop. I really can't express how much we enjoyed our time there - would definitely recommend it and go again ourselves.

Pre wedding family holiday!!

  • 5 of 5
WOW WOW WOW!! This home away from home was a true delight. We had the most wonderful time. I stayed here with my mum and sisters, brother in law and my niece and nephew for the week leading up to my wedding in Tuscany. There was 7 adults and 2 kids in total. Ken the owner has thought of everything and provided us with so much helpful information about the area, restaurants, supermarkets etc. The house was very well equipped, including high chairs and cots for the kids. The house is very spacious, (more than enough room for us all), beautifully decorated and definitely has the homely and luxurious feel .The large kitchen has every possible appliance you could wish for. The beds are super comfortable. The showers are powerful, with no shortage of hot water. The large inviting pool where we spent the most part of our day was spotlessly clean (a gardener tends to the grounds and the pool regularly). There are a large number of comfortable sunloungers, and the surrounding views including the lake make for a truly relaxing experience. On our first night we went to the neighbours restaurant, a five minute walk, the food was excellent and was perfect for the first night. We did a big shop in the supermarket, (there is a big freezer in the kitchen and an additional one in the garage) and ate outside at the big comfortable table under the beautiful pergola which was the "piece de resistance". Our nights were spent chilling, eating and enjoying the amazing wine. We took advantage of the bbq for a few of the nights, there is also plenty of outdoor lighting. The nights outside in this serene place were so perfect. There is also a TV room with a huge TV and equally huge DVD collection. The set up of the accommodation was perfect for us as there is an additional beautiful cottage with two bedrooms, where the children and their Mum and Dad stayed, but it would be perfect for any members of a group wanting a little extra privacy. The trampoline provided great fun. There are plenty of places to sneak off to if you fancy getting away from it all. Once you enter the impressive electric gates and make your way up the drive, you know you are in for a treat and you won't be disappointed. Simply heaven and we would highly recommend a stay.................Can't wait to go back!!

A beautiful home for a relaxing holiday

  • 5 of 5
The property was even better than was expected. Beautifully finished and furnished. The views surrounding the house was spectacular and being able to wake up with the sun rising up over the hills surrounding the Lake was the stuff of dreams. The house was clean and well maintained and it was perfect to have a mesh blinds at the windows as it was a blazing high 30's most days. Ken was very helpful and was able to give us information for local activities. We had a day trip to local places Orvieta and Cortona and longer days to Assisi and Rome(train from Chiusi return15euros). We are a large family group and everything was perfect for us including the weather. Would certainly recommend this property for a very relaxing time.

may 2012 fabulous holiday!

  • 5 of 5
We spent a wonderful 8 days in early May in this gorgeous villa and wished more than anything that we could have stayed longer. The villa is everything you could wish for from a holiday rental -spacious, luxurious, comfortable with beautiful bathrooms and a very well appointed kitchen. Very comfortable beds! We are a family of 6 (although the house could easily have accommodated several more) with 4 children under 12 and the house was ideal for all our needs - the pool is just beautiful and even in early May we were in and out constantly! The owners have left lots of useful information about the amenities of the house and the local and wider area so everything was easy to find and it was great to have the tips and recommendations. We loved Cortona and Montepulciano and both are easy trips from the villa. What we enjoyed most of all was hanging out at the lovely house and the pool, enjoying the gorgeous setting in absolute privacy (aside from the lizards enjoying the sun!). And in the evenings sipping lovely Italian wine while the kids were happy choosing from the wide variety of DVDs available. We also made great use of the piano which is in the hall - lovely acoustics with all the tile and brickwork! All in all, this property is an ideal holiday house and we would recommend it to anyone who's looking for an Italian getaway.

First trip to Italy and definitely not the last

  • 5 of 5
We needed accommodation to suit the needs of a grandmother of 80+, a newly married couple, a newly engaged couple and a couple of exhausted couples! And we found it. A welcoming, comfortable, very well appointed large villa and cute cottage ensured we were all suited beautifully. At the end of a quiet lane you approach the newly restored cottage with the older elegant villa in the background. The garden of vines, olives, rosemary and lavender with the substantial size pool is a calming and serene spot to spend lazy afternoons. The views are spectacular, sunrises and sunsets were enjoyed from the covered patio. If you are feeling more energetic the local villages, wineries and restaurants provide a wonderful range of rustic to high class food and entertainment. The local rail station connects you easily, but not that quickly (you are in middle Italy after all) to such magnificent cities as Florence and Rome and all stops in between.
Ken, the owner was most helpful, providing his own insights as well as leaving the ‘yellow’ folder for his guests; a very useful collection of things you need to know about the villa and surroundings. We sampled and endorse many of the suggested eating places and activities. Try the pasta making evening, it is huge fun. It was a wonderful two weeks for all, and as I mentioned to Ken, you need a very good reason to return home, or you might find it almost impossible to leave. We will be returning.

Notes:
The farmhouse has a beautiful vine covered pergola which is ideal for al fresco dining. Positioned off the large country kitchen, it is south facing and is next to the pool area. A magnificent oak tree in the north side of the farmhouse offers shade throughout most of the day and is a beautiful spot for relaxation and reading. The guest cottage has a covered portico which can be a cool retreat from the activity of the pool area. We are the last inhabited house on the country lane and so the surroundings are very peaceful. The lane is wonderful for early morning or evening strolls - part of the lane is flanked by matured oak forests in which you are free to roam. The lane is very quiet and apart from the odd tractor it is seldomly used by other vehicles. The farmhouse has a water filtration system - so beautiful clean drinking water is available with negates the need to purchase bottled water.
