Franco Burrello purchased this Apartment in 2002

Warm, welcoming, wonderful
We cannot say enough good things about our stay. The hosts are friendly and open, and made our time on the farm relaxing and delightful. The views are to die for, the pool is lovely, and the figs are delicious. We were fortunate to come on family dinner night and were completely spoiled. Strongly recommend to families and couples.
Is it too soon to go back?
We spent a month in Europe staying all over France & Italy and this was our absolute favorite place. Our biggest regret of the trip is that we didn't stay for longer. It is so peaceful, charming and welcoming. Our children absolutely loved picking fruits for breakfast and eating fresh eggs from the chickens. On our list to stay for longer next time we are in Italy!
Second stop at CasaRondini
This was a return trip for me to this lovely agriturismo in the countryside of Montegabbione. I visited with family members in 2011, and loved it enough to bring 5 more family and friends to stay for a few days again this year. Bozena and Franco make this such a lovely stay because they are delightful people. We learned to make pasta and had a couple of fabulous meals with the other guests. You have access to the organic garden, fresh eggs, their own wine, saffron, jams, olive oil, etc., making your own home cooked meals so much fun. We rented a car and traveled to many near-by towns and always made it home to either eat with the guests or make our own fantastic meal. We rented the two upper 2-bedroom apartments overlooking the pool as well as the vineyard on both trips, and they were both just perfect.
Travelers from southern Oregon USA
We were a group of 6 that were making our way around Italy and stopped for four nights at this wonderful agri touristmo. We rented the two top apartments and had wonderful views of the valley and a deck with to relax on.
Our hosts held a pasta night for us. We learned how to make pasta and then they cooked a wonderful dinner for us. We also had a saffron dinner night, which was delicious.
Charming and great for kids
Very friendly and helpful owners. Beautiful rural surroundings and with a nice pool. Our two boys (9 and 13 years) very much enjoyed the evenings with pizza baking and pasta making, and so did we parent - as well as the relaxed atmosphere. Feeding the chickens and rabbits, spotting the turtle and digging up their own cucumbers was other hits.
We stayed at Casa Rondini this summer 2012 for a week at the end of July and this was our 5th visit here (that's how much we like it!). The place is very peaceful, with a good pool and lovely spacious apartments. There are lots of little hill top towns to explore in the vicinity as well as being close enough to visit lovely places such as Orvieto, Siena, Todi and Assisi. However, the thing that really makes this place special are the optional communal evening meals 3 times a week where you can design your own pizza (Pizza night) which is then cooked by Franco in the stone pizza oven, try your hand at making pasta which is then expertly cooked and served with amazing sauces by Franco (Pasta night), or sample some wonderful recipes using Franco and Bozena's home grown saffron (Saffron night). And I almost forgot to mention the home made wine and limoncello! Getting to know a number of families from across Europe and USA at these meals has been a highlight each time we have visited. We have no hesitation in recommending this place and also the wonderful hosts Franco, Bozena and their 2 delightful daughters.
