Our recent week in June of 2019 at Casale Monticchio in Umbria was exceptional! Andrew and Hugues are the owners and were gracious hosts throughout the week. We enjoyed a wonderful meal with them and other guests - and they were very generous and gracious throughout our stay. Four of us stayed in "The Barns" on the property - rustic, spacious, well-equipped, and wonderfully appointed. A beautiful outdoor pool overlooking the hay field for easy swimming and relaxation - which we used daily after trips to nearby hill towns and other excursions. Andrew and Hugues continue to improve the surrounding property and the various units - all done tastefully and with a lot of passion. The town of Split is just a couple of miles up the road in order to buy essentials. Although a portion of the drive into and out of the property is somewhat rough, no problem in getting in and out - and well worth the roughness. Close access to Perugia, Assisi, Marsciano, Lake Tramineso, and many other locations. Andrew and Hugues lined up a vineyard tour and wine tasting at a local winery - which was great - and they also provided great recommendations for day trips and dinners. A friendship with Andrew and Hugues was established almost instantaneously. We would go stay at Casale Monticchio again in a heartbeat.
