Our house was built in 1928 and it is historical fashioned and also comfortable .In 2006 we have had it restaured indoor with a keen attention to details to let it as much as harmonious with its past as possible.

Bella casa e molto accogliente. La vista e veramente eccezionale! Abbiamo avuto un tempo freddo ma il camino ha fatto il soggiorno abbastanza caldo. La cucina est completa con un enorme frigorifero. Le stanze erano semplice ma comode. Il paese sembra quasi morte ma Bardi e non lontano. Li si trova tutto ciò che è necessario per la famiglia. Bardi e un bel posto anche per pranzare o cenare. Da Rugarlo ci vuole 45 minuti per arrivare al A15.
Das House on the hill übertraf unsere Erwartungen. In diesem außergewöhnlich liebevoll eingerichteten Haus ließen sich die Stille der umgebenden Natur und ein quirliges italienisches Leben wunderbar vereinen. Der nahe gelegene Fluss Ceno bot viele Badestellen, die die Abenteuerlust bei unseren Kindern auslöste. Der 3 Kilometer entfernte Ort Bardi bietet neben einer ausgesprochen sehenswerten Burg, sehr gute Restaurants und Bars. Wir haben diese Woche sehr genossen und werden sicherlich wieder an diesen verwunschenen Ort zurückkehren.
Four of us (all adults) spent a week at the home of Sondra and Diego in Rugarlo during May 2016. From the moment we booked, our hosts were extremely accommodating and remained easy to contact throughout.
Upon arriving we were greeted by a freshly cooked homemade lunch and wine (which was very welcome after an early start that morning!). Sondra and Diego’s house has a lot of charm. Once there, it feels like you are staying in the home of an old family friend rather than a typical vacation rental (which can often lack character).
The house has two bedrooms and two bathrooms. The combined kitchen and sitting area (with small, satellite, TV) is very well equipped. The view from every window is outstanding.
The location of the house is rural, but this is part of its appeal. The beautiful nearby town of Bardi has several café/bars and restaurants (Il Pelicano and Due Spade) as well as a number of small (but excellent) shops.
Thank you Sondra and Diego for making our stay so special. It is a shame we had to leave!
We spent a lovely two weeks in the nice, characteristic house of Sondra and Diego in Rugarlo. The house is well-equipped: good kitchen, good bathrooms and good beds. There are a lot of beds but only two bedrooms so we sleept in the livingroom but that was no problem because the bed was good. Sondra and Diego are very coöperative, they agreed with a tent in the garden for extra guests for a few days. It is a very quiet place with a beautifull view over the mountains. We were very glad with the swimmingopportunity in the Ceno and the village Bardi very near. We can recommend this house for sure.

Dear Sondra and Diego
Thank you ever so much for a most friendly welcome to your beautiful house! (The cake and wine were delicious).
We enjoyed every minute of our vacation in the quiet and idyllic surroundings of Rugarlo; hope to go there again some day. Spectacular views from every window and every spot outside! We shall be recommending the place as an absolutely perfect holiday home for every member of any normal family. And the Thursday market in Bardi is second to none. Happy and smiling people all over the place.

The house is in a little village on the hill and enjoys sun and special breezes from the sea ( not too far from here it's about 80 km).It is far few kilometres from Bardi and Varsi. The summer in Valceno is a pleasant symphony: ,brightly days of sciented views and nights of singing crickets . You can start the day with a genuine breakfast in the garden, y can have yr lunch in the tree shade and if y wish your dinner at light candles under a romantic moon as the weather is mild in Summer . The clear river Ceno there down the hill , offers lots of fun and baths in its safe waters, small waterfalls and pools great for kids and adults. All around it's nature, on the other side of the valley, opposite the house raises mount Barigazzo with grazing animals and a mystery : Città d'Umbria of Celtic origins. To the North up there, y see the mountain Carameto full of strawberries and flowers , there you can see wild horses living there all the season.
