We are a young couple from France, living in Italy for 8 years after some years of humanitarian work in developing countries. Our desire to grow roots some place not too far from our country of origin was naturally answered when we met with Italy and Umbria.

Mathias André purchased this house in 2008

We discovered Umbria along motorbike touring week ends off Rome. We were touched by the genuine beauty of Umbrian landscapes first. Then, the wealth of Umbrian culture as well as warmth of its people achieved to convince us that this was the place for us.

Nested in the heart of a natural reserve, this house is the dream of any nature and calm lover. Its environment is as suited for open air activities such as trekking, mountain biking etc. as it is for cultural visits, due to its ideal distance from a number of great art cities such as Todi, Orvieto, Perugia, Assisi... Tuscany is also very closely, with Montepulciano at only 60 kms, Siena 120 km, and Florence at 180 kms.

A Splendid House and Base for an Umbrian Vacation

  • 5 of 5
We found the house to be delightful, very comfortable, and well appointed. Although the house is old, as shown in some photographs in the house, the owners have been extremely successful in tastefully renovating and decorating it to preserve its authenticity while giving it a modern feel. It's location, remote and quiet, made for a very relaxing vacation. We loved the early mornings, taking coffee outside, and the evenings with their spectacular sunsets. The location was also ideal for visiting Orvieto, Perugia, Assisi, Lake Maggiore, and the local eco-friendly winery. The local town of Marsciano was also worth visiting. All in all, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay, truly relaxed, and look forward to a return visit when we are able to schedule it.

Vacances individuelles pour tous les sens

  • 5 of 5
Nous recommandons cette maison à tous ceux qui aiment les vacances individuelles dans la nature verte des collines d'Umbria et le charme d'une maison où l'on respire les temps passés mais aussi les influences des cultures du monde entier, où l'on profite du confort moderne en même temps que de la tranquillité, où l'on se détend au milieu d'une nature florissante. Nous avons dû dire au revoir aux 3 huppes qui nous rendaient visite le tôt matin, au chant des cigales et des grenouilles, au carillon des 9 heures du soir. Nous disons au revoir aux aimables italiens de la région pas encore déferlée par des touristes, aux cathédrales imposantes et aux chapelles modestes, aux villes et aux villages perchés sur des collines, aux ruelles qui méandrent dans le paysage offrant toujours des perspectives nouvelles, aux saints et aux artistes célèbres formés par cette région et créant à leur tour ce pays. Nous remercions beaucoup Aurélie Larmoyer et Mathias André qui ont crée un véritable paradis et qui nous ont accompagnés et aidés tout le temps. Nous disons également merci à Gillian et Christina qui s'occupent de la maison et des hôtes sur place pour leur accueil aimable et la pour la propreté de la maison.

Lovely house, perfect for recharging batteries!

  • 5 of 5
If you are looking for a sophisticated house (with cds, books and children books you will love) in a secluded destination (almost no house in site, except for a far away castle), Casale Le Ripe is your holiday home. Umbria provides the rest in terms of food, architectural beauties and excellent wine.

A Perfect Week in Umbria

  • 5 of 5
We rented Casale le Ripe as a party of six: my wife and I and four adult children. While there we walked in the country, visited hill towns, went to market day and enjoyed two wonderful meals prepared by friends of our hosts. Some of us visited local wineries returning with delicious wines made from the Sagrantino grape. We ate outside overlooking a beautiful valley. Casale le Ripe is a very special place - lovingly restored by Mathias and Aurelie. It sits on the side of a steep hill protected by the walls of the valley. The light and colors of the countryside are always changing. In the evening we were put to sleep by the sounds of tree frogs, and in the morning we were awoken by the sounds of the many birds which live in the valley. The colors, sounds and scent of spring in this Umbrian ideal are perfect. Casale le Ripe feels like a little oasis tucked in, away from the real world. We had a wonderful vacation and look forward to returning in the future.

Une maison exceptionnelle - vaut le voyage !

  • 5 of 5
Nous avons passé une semaine exceptionnelle au Casale Le Ripe pour fêter nos 25 ans de mariage avec nos enfants et notre petit-fils de 3 ans.
La maison est encore plus belle "en vrai" que sur les photos, tous les détails sont soignés, les objets respirent tous une histoire particulière qui raconte si bien Mathias et Aurélie qu'on croit les connaitre et qu'on est presque surpris de ne pas les trouver là en rentrant le soir ...
Quel bonheur d'ouvrir ses volets le matin sur les collines verdoyantes baignées de lumière, avec les chants des oiseaux et le bruit de la rivière... Même notre tout-petit en a été émerveillé !
Nous avons visité les sites magnifiques alentour - Assise, Orvieto, Perugia - mais aussi choisi de rester à la maison plusieurs fois pour profiter des lieux, des environs, du hamac, de la vue à 360°, du calme, du son des cloches, du coin du feu quand la fraîcheur du soir monte. Mention spéciale pour le choix des musiques !
Nous avons aussi eu la chance de rencontrer Cristina et Francesco qui nous ont concocté un repas typiquement ombrien, excellent et préparé sous nos yeux avec beaucoup d'amour. A recommander chaudement !
Un très grand merci à Mathias et Aurélie de nous avoir accueillis de cette façon et de nous avoir confié leur si belle maison.
Merci à la petite Giulia d'avoir prêté ses jouets et ses livres.
Nous sommes sûrs que cette maison fera encore beaucoup d'heureux, et nous aurons plaisir à la suivre via le site Internet.

You will fall in love with this place.

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful stay in Casale Le Ripe. If was as the website describes, except even better in person. Every room is comfortable and cozy, the kitchen equipped to cook whatever your heart desires, a fireplace to gather around in the evening, and a back terrace that I promise you will never want to leave. One might expect to be remote you have to sacrifice some comforts (a good shower, water you can drink from the faucet, wifi), but that is not the case here as everything has been thought of and redone with such care. And even though the place is remote, access to services like groceries is easy and the location for exploring Umbria’s big and small hill towns is perfect. We day tripped to Assisi, Orvieto, a number of small hill towns, and had a wonderful olive oil/wine tour at nearby Monte Vibiano (which our hosts recommended.) One day, we passed on a day trip to just enjoy the house and the creek where our children played for hours. Mathias and Aurelie were great communicating with us before and during our stay, and after being in their home which is filled with treasures from their many travels – we only wish we could have enjoyed a long dinner with them. We are Americans living as Expats in Europe for a couple of years and travel very frequently, and I can tell you that this is one of the most special places we have found.

Nested in a green valley of Umbria, 'the green heart of Italy', the house constitutes a perfect starting point to tour the region, be it for nature-related sports, or for cultural visits.

The house is surrounded by lots of green paths going up and down, with breath-taking views or within forested areas, starting with the 600 ha wide natural reserve facing the southern terrace.

The property is also the ideal location from where to go for day trips at the discovery of the many cultural beauties of Umbria: medieval cities or villages, or even Rome or Florence, only distant of about 2 hrs of motorway drive.

Amongst cities to visit in the region are:

- Perugia, the regional capital of Umbria, 20 min drive away, is a charming medieval stone town that offers multiple visit opportunities, and hosts great antique or flea markets on some week ends. In July, the 'Umbria jazz festival' is worth the trip!

- Assisi, 30 min away, is an ancient white stone city where you can calmly walk on the footsteps of San Francesco's.

- Todi, 20 min drive away, is a smaller version of the her above cousins and its fortified walls and etruscan treasures give it a certain charm.

- Orvieto, 40 min drive away, is known for its imposing black and white cathedral, nice old pedestrian city center, as well as its white wines.

- Spoleto, at 45 min drive, is another splendid and particular town that hosts a recognized music festival during the summer.

But even closer, you can also discover so many of the lovely ancient villages with suggestive names, such as Poggio Aquilone, Rotecastello, Civitella dei Conti, Ospedaletto, San vito in Monte,... which each have they own traditional Saint fairs, with live music, tables outside and delicious local foods to be shared with all their villagers.
