Beautiful secluded villa
Villa Macee is a great place to get away from it all--with beautiful views. The property managers are very helpful and the pool is really nice on hot days. It's an old stone house that has been nicely renovated and it's comfortable indoors even when very hot outside. There's also a 2 bedroom annex next door that you can rent if a larger group. We went with lots of different friends and family coming to visit over the course of 1 month and everyone loved it. It is isolated--which is great for relaxation but it does mean driving for shopping, eating out etc...There are a few small villages nearby (but not really within walking distance) and a few restaurants and shops and it's a 25 min drive to Todi, where you can buy everything. Would definitely recommend to those seeking a quiet secluded vacation.
Enchanting countryside villa
We stayed at the stunning Villa La Macee for 10 days in September/October 2018, the quintessential country home that provided a base for exploring the more rural side of Umbrian life.
Whether we were enjoying a sunrise cup of coffee on the terrace or a sunset glass of wine strolling around the olive grove, the sweeping views were breathtaking.
The villa interior is immaculate, comfortable, and perfectly appointed with all the creature comforts of home including good and reliable WiFi service. It looks exactly as described and shown. The master bathroom offers a gorgeous clawfoot tub overlooking the local hills which is perfect for a relaxing soak after a long day of exploration.
Sabrina, the concierge/caretaker is a lovely woman who lives locally and provided an unparalleled knowledge of the area. She was always available with a prompt reply via text for any question or to provide a recommendation including making reservations for dinner, massages, and horseback riding. She is warm and welcoming and our stay would not have been the same without her. Staying so far outside of a large city may seem challenging, but Sabrina went out of her way to be inviting and showed us a warm friendship that made us feel like true locals!
There are many fine sections around the grounds from which to perch and take in the sights and sounds of the small towns perched high in the surrounding hills. The pool remained open upon request as it was late in the season and though we only used it once, it was easy to be envious of summer travelers who surely enjoyed it and the cabana during the warmer weather. The trampoline provided for a fun photo prop.
There are several sweet little local shops, cafes, and restaurants within a 5-15 minute drive of the villa. This gave the villa a feeling of being private and hidden but not isolated. The local grocery store 10 minutes away in Collelungo was open at convenient hours and was perfect for gathering the provisions to craft homemade Italian meals. Particularly enjoyable for dinner were the Kairos Kafe and Ristaurante Semiramide.
We hired Alessandra, a fabulous local masseuse, who came to Macee and set up her table on the terrace. A massage overlooking the countryside was an opulent treat.
Be aware that staying in this location truly requires a car as there is no local transport, though it is possible to hire Ivan, the caretaker, for car service.
Enjoy your stay at Macee and say ciao to Aurora, the farm kitty, for us!
Excellent Property - Great holiday!
We (a group of 3 couples in our late 30s) have just returned from a wonderful week at La Macee. The villa was excellent and had everything we needed, including a very well stocked kitchen. Pool & BBQ areas both lovely and lots of room in the villa to relax. Sabrina was very helpful whenever we needed any help or advice. Great location, but a car is definitely necessary. So many lovely hilltop towns/villages close by to visit and the food & wine are amazing!! As are the shops!! Nothing negative to report at all.
Great host and property
Overall had a great stay. Sabrina, the host, was extremely helpful, had great recommendations and was accommodating. The place is good for kids between the pool, trampoline and sleeping set up. Would recommend this place.
A delightful place
An absolutely stunning villa, very well maintained. Sabrina was especially helpful in looking after us. Pool is amazing as are the many beautiful places to sit in the garden and the house and the courtyards. Perfect!
Fantastic Umbrian Villa!
We are a family of 5 with three small boys (8,6,3) who have just spent an amazing week at Villa Le Macee. Our host Sabrina made sure we had everything we needed, and was always available by phone or text to any questions we had about the local area etc. The villa is set in a beautiful area with amazing views and full privacy. The house itself is very spacious and clean, with enough room to easily accommodate up to 7 people. The grounds are well kept, and the pool and trampoline kept the kids entertained. I'd recommend the villa to any family wanting to prioritise quality time together.
Both Todi and Orvieto are reachable within 30 mins drive. There is also several small villages closer by for groceries etc.
