Christmas Holiday

  • 4 of 5
After making the booking we were notified that the village had suffered a one-in-50 year flood so were rather unsure what to expect. The owners had gone to a lot of trouble to rectify the damage (ground floor only), replace equipment, etc. and to decorate the house for our Christmas stay. They were there from Rome to welcome us. A high chair and cot were provided for our toddler and bookings had been made for us for Christmas lunch at a restaurant about 20 minutes drive away. The house is very well equipped and was quite comfortable for a family of five. We made good use of the open fire every night. There is an excellent new supermarket in Ponterio a short drive away and the house was well located for the visits we made to Todi, Perugia, Assisi, Montefalco, Orvieto and Spoleto.

Casa Greta is wonderful !

  • 5 of 5
We returned last Saturday from our 2 weeks holiday in Todi. The villa was fantastic, it really has everything you need, it is large and well furnished. It is just as described.
The garden is also well equiped (fridge, freezer, etc.) and is quite lovely to spent some time in it.
Greta and Alberto gave us a warm welcome and made us feel at home. We received any information we could ever need. The information about the restaurants was very helpfull. We have tried some of them and we prefer Il Re Beve: very good food, nice staff, beautifully located.
We also met Bruno, the caretaker. Every day, before we woke up, he had already taken care of the garden so that everything was OK.
The location is perfect. You can reach easily and quickly all the cities of Umbria, such as Spoleto, Spello, Bevagna, Orvieto, etc., even Assisi and Gubbio are not that far away. You must also visit Le Cascate delle Marmore, they are wonderful.
The store across the road is very helpful and the supermarket is nearby.
In short, I would recommend it to everyone who likes peace and quiet and who likes to visit everything that there is to see without having to spend hours in the car.

Peace and Quiet without being too cut off

  • 5 of 5
We recently returned from a lovely week in Todi staying in Greta's lovely home. Despite arriving at a seriously unsociable time Greta was there to welcome us and make sure that we had everything we needed.

The House was everything we hopeed for - a great location, lots of space and totally 'Umbrian'! From here we were able to plan trips out that took us to Orvieto, Assisi, Rome, Perugia and of course Todi.

Great photographic opportunities and stunning weather. And we always had easy access to Greta if we needed help of guidance.

For people who want to experience living in Umbria and going local - as well as get around and explore the stunning scenery - this is a great choice.

Wonderful Country Home near Todi

  • 5 of 5
We recently spent the week of May 7-14, 2011 in this beautiful stone country house near Todi. We loved the house, the gardens and the location, which was perfect for exploring the towns of Umbria such as Orvieto, Spoleto, Perugia, Assissi,etc. The house is very large and is extremely well furnished, in fact, it is furnished beautifully, with antique furniture and art work. As there were only two of us, we were very comfortable, but this house could easily accomodate large families, maybe even 10-12 people. There were several bedrooms we never even went into! The house is on three levels- it is very large. Also, the hospitality of the owners, Greta and Alberto, made our visit all the better. They have compiled folders containing recommendations of things to do and see in the area. Even in one week we could barely scratch the surface, but we did have a marvelous experience eating Sunday lunch at Titignano, which is a castle perched high on a hilltop overlooking a beautiful lake. The lunch started at 1:30pm and went until 5:00pm. we were served endless platters of wonderful Italian home cooked dishes- we believe it was about a 20 course meal in total!! It was fantastic- not only the meal, but the setting as well.We never would have known about this if not for the recommendation of Greta. So all in all, we had a fantastic week, and I would highly recommend this lovely home to anyone who would love the experience of living in a country village and exploring Umbria.

An Unforgetable experience in Pian di San Martino

  • 5 of 5
A group of five friends just stayed at Casa Greta in October 2010 and we had a fabulous time! Greta and Alberto were waiting there to greet us after we arrived from a long trip. They, along with Bruno, the caretaker, made us feel like we were old friends.
The villa was just as described, if not better. The garden is quite lovely and has everything one could need under a covered preparation and eating area. You can pick the grapes right off the vine if you go during the harvest.
Everything the other reviews say is true, I cannot think of anything that has been neglected. There is absolutely everything you need within a walk or a short drive. We had a car and were able to explore many lovely hill towns in the area and a winery or two. There are plenty of maps and information available at the villa for visiting nearby areas.
We were able to try a few of the restaurants in Todi that they recommended and we were very happy with the food and service.
Alberto and Greta made sure we knew where the market, bank and any other things we needed could be found. They also helped us too get transportation to the train station for a friend who was going a different direction than we were when we left.
If anyone needs further information from someone who has rented the villa I told Greta that they could contact me. She has my information if that would make it easier to make a decision. My advice is DON'T HESITATE! You will have a wonderful time at Casa Greta. We did and would love to return someday for another visit with our new friends.

Glorious

  • 5 of 5
First of all, Greta and Alberto - thank you for all of your help and patience.

Trying to find a villa with a safe house and garden for a destructive 24 month old, a space for my mother, my brother & sister-in-law and a big enough bedroom for myself and the hubby and our newborn in the travel cot is quite tricky - trying to find somewhere like that at a reasonable price near Todi is another thing. And then I stumbled upon Greta's Casa. The studio on the ground floor was perfect for my mum, and the 3 bedrooms on the 2nd floor were ideal for the rest of us. The Napoleon bed was adored by Patch (my 2year old).

The garden was a complete success - a fridge/freezer/power points for my baby monitors, and a large enough table to get all of us round and our many friends in the area. The alimentari across the street was the perfect place to get all our antipasti and main ingredients for our big group of diners as well as all the household necessities you may have forgotten or run out of.

My family have had a holiday home in Todi for the last 10 years until my father died 1 year ago. Coming back to the area for the first time since and without the familiarity of our old appartment - we were all feeling very anxious and quite emotional. Greta made the whole experience so easy and hassle free and introduced us to our temporary neighbours and showed us everything we would need to know.

The only thing that we're used to having that the house didn't was a bath for the kids - but to be honest it didn't even matter. Patch loved having his first experience of having showers, and Tommy was tiny enough for the sink. Perfect!

Don't hesitate on renting this property - it is exactly as it is described and we will hopefully be renting it again next year.

P.S. The Zio Totto restaurant is great! Give it a try! Try and go a little earlier than the table so you can visit the Teatro in Monticastello di Vibio (it's the smallest theatre in the world).
