It was great!

  • 4 of 5

We had een marvellous time last summer in Casale Pacifico!

A very complete and beatiful house, with 2 kitchens, a pizza oven, large garden.

Our favorite place was in the middel of the garden, our " meeting place", where we hadden breakfast, lunch and dinner.

A great house for large familys. We stayed here with a family of six ( 2 adult, 4 children), 2 grandparents and an aunt.

Valentina and her husband are very hospitable and kind. We loved our stay here, near Rome, and we hope to come back again!

great views, well equipped, culture close by

  • 5 of 5

The accommodation was good equipped, clean, comfortable, with two well furnished kitchens. We just spent 2 weeks in Cantalice, and had an amazing time. As a family with 2 x 11 year old boys, a 4 year old girl, and two grandparents, the house was perfect - having more than enough space to accommodate us all, and being both tastefully decorated and well equipped. Valentina and Andrea could not have been more welcoming and assisted us in any way they could. The grounds are truly breath-taking, and if you are looking for a peaceful retreat, close to Umbria's e Lazio’s most popular towns and cities, this is a perfect location. I can't wait to come back, and have already been recommending to our friends.

Very nice place

  • 5 of 5

A great place. Very wide beautiful views. Our holiday was excellent. Valentina, the owner, welcomed us very warmly, and she help us with any kind of questions. The property is clean, well equipped, and very well maintained. A short walk from the house, there is Rieti and many countries with lots of restaurants. During our stay, we spent wonderful days in Rome and in the surround of the house. We recommend this place to all lovers of Lazio and Umbria regions. We hope to be back soon.

Abbiamo trascorso una settimana fantastica!

  • 5 of 5

Abbiamo soggiornato in 3 coppie, avendo ognuna la propria privacy. La casa è molto grande, con 2 depéndance. In tutto ci sono 4 grandi camere da letto matrimoniali, un ampia area soggiorno , due cucine ben attrezzate... ed un ampio forno a legna per le pizze! Il casale è situato in una zona tranquilla ed è servito da una strada asfaltata da cui si accede ad un ampio parcheggio riservato. Ottimo punto di partenza per visitare l'alto Lazio e l'Umbria.

Fantastic holiday - thanks Valentina!

  • 5 of 5

This was undoubtedly the best country villa we have stayed in. The house is recently renovated. It is nicely furnished, spacious, clean, comfortable. The two kitchens are equipped with everything you could possibly need. We also used the large wood-burning oven in the home - buying the pastry in the market of Cantalice - to make some excellent Italian pizzas! The situation is magical, with wonderful views in all directions of the mountains and surrounding countryside. It is situated about 1 hour drive from Rome so we spent a day there taking in some of the famous sites. Rieti is about ten minutes drive. Many good restaurants, bars and super markets are very close. The Rieti area is wonderful and so breathtakingly beautiful, just have a drive around. Highly recommended for anyone wishing to absorb real Italian life, in a real Italian Villa, with a great emphasis on privacy and comfort. Our children was visibly enjoying to swim in the pool and we pleasantly refreshed after visits the places around. Absolute Must See: Spoleto, Poggio Bustone, Leonessa, Cittaducale, Labro… We'll be back!
