WOW! After countless hours of searching for the perfect spot form my dream vacation, I came upon this charming villa. I arranged for my trip for a month with friends and family joining me throughout the trip. Truthfully, I was nervous, what if it wasn't like the pictures I thought? When I arrived I was THRILLED. It was beyond my expectations. The spread of food, the attention to detail, the thoughtfulness and caring literally brought tears to my eyes. Monia is an incredible hostess. She is kind, thorough and quite an amazing woman. Casa del Cantico is stunning, warm and welcoming. I had such an amazing time traveling to different quaint villages, enjoying the sagras and cooking!!!! Monia coordinated a fantastic cooking class so I could take an amazing taste of Italy with me. Each of my guests were delighted. The accommodations are clean with all the amenities you need. What a wonderful place to experience the Italian lifestyle. I will recommend this place to everyone and hope to return!
We where looking for some peace full and relaxing Christmas and new year holiday .
I just can say here we really got it fulfilled , no i think it was more than this .
Already before our actual arrival we got a phone call from the owner, asking if we are already near by?
They would meet us on the exit from the motorway because it could be a little tricky to find the place in the dark(we got already beforehand a very good describing with pictures and coordinates how to drive there).
Even it was nearly midnight we where greeted with a very warm welcome.On the top of this the owners prepared for us a welcome table with regional food, Products and Wine.
Which was absolutely great after a long journey.
Fabiola and Monia (the very nice owners)where even going this far to provide for free some products for the next morning for breakfast, so we where able to relax from the first second on .All the paperwork and discussion we where able to do next day.
In the morning they offered to show us around so that we know where to go and what to buy where. They also provide a mobile phone with some money on it ,so you can reach them or something else with a local phone.
All in all ,you just would wish to see this attitude towards the guests in a 5 star hotel. Because when and whatever you would like to know Fabiola and Monia trying to full fill everything in there power so that you can have a unforgettable holiday in this place.
Just for example . I got high fewer during our stay ,so i called Fabiola if she would be so kind and organize some medicines for me.20 min later i had a wide variety of medicine in front of my eyes to choose from.
IF YOU WANT TO HAVE A UNFORGETTABLE VACATION THERE IS NO WAY NOT TO COME HERE.
we for sure will come back . already planning on our next trip (even it will be more to the south of Italy) to at least pass by to say hello and drink one of the famous Italian espresso and have some little talk with Fabiola and Monia.
About the house everything is like it is mentioned on the web page and much more. You can write another 2 pages about how lovely the whole Villa is made with all the little fitting details .
For us it was the first time to rent some private home normally we are more the 4 and 5 star hotel people but i have to say we really enjoyed every minute of this vacation (even the one laying in this comfortable bed being sick.)
I don't know how to adequately explain the incredible experience that Monia and Fabiola created for us. As our first week in Italy, this proved a tough act to follow but it also was an amazing place to relax and enjoy the beauty of the Umbrian countryside. The car ride from Rome was easy and beautiful, and as we drove up into Bettona and into the hills we wondered whether we might regret the "rural" setting we had chosen. Boy, were we wrong! The breathtaking view from the front steps of Casa del Cantico were only the beginning of an amazing experience.
Fabiola welcomed us with a feast fit for kings. We had mentioned my husband's gluten issues during our initial communications and not only did they have a list of celiac friendly restaurants and stores for us when we arrived, she had set out a gluten-less spread that left us all speechless. I will say that the pictures here do not lie - the place is incredibly appointed down to the tiniest detail. This is a home anyone could live in - and we might have considered staying there forever if we could have! And that level of hospitality on top of the location?! It was beyond our wildest dreams. I know this sounds over the top. But it was truly amazing. Our boys - 10 and 6 - loved it. They loved the food that was set out (prosciutto e melone became a staple of our diet thanks to Fabiola! As did Cecci!), they loved the games they could play, the space to run about and the outdoor dining room. It was a wonderful place to come to each afternoon/evening after a day of exploring the nearby towns - all with their amazing charm, gorgeous views and incredible history. Every recommended restaurant was top notch (Siro in Torgiano-To Die For!). Fabiola and Monia even went out of their way to find us pools nearby for the boys to play in. The week was storybook.
Almost... :) The night before we left we had a small accident with our rental car during one of our excursions. Even then Fabiola and Monia were there for us ALL THE WAY. They helped us call and negotiate with the local car rental place and even offered to go out of their way on Saturday morning to help us get to a new rental car. They went way above and beyond for us. They are stellar, wonderful women and we so hope to see them again! The boys miss the doggies and the house and the jacuzzi. We miss it all! We can't wait to do it again! This was our very first experience with Home Away. We are spoiled forever, but boy was it worth it!
My new wife and I picked Casa Del Cantico off of the VRBO site out of the blue. I read through the reviews and looked at the pictures, and something just felt right about the place. After a week's stay, I can tell you that we were pleased beyond our wildest dreams. Our week here was picture perfect. The apartment was spotless, beautifully decorated, had a home-like feeling, had a view from like a post card. What's more, the hosts were the sweetest, most wonderful people you could ask to meet. The thoughtful tray of delightful food and treats were the perfect respite for weary travelers. As other guests have mentioned, our two hosts were as hospitable and helpful as could be throughout our trip, taking us on local tours of the area to show us where to shop, dine, and discover shortcuts to better get around the area. We spent the majority of our time there traveling the area, and used the apartment as a retreat at night to rest up in. Our hosts were there when we needed them, and we didn't even know they were there when we were alone. The local area offers so much to see. We spent part of our trip driving to some of the more far away towns like San Gimignano, but honestly, the local Umbrian hill towns were every bit as interesting and fun to see. Florence is about a 2 hour drive, but so many beautiful towns are very close to the apartment, I would recommend staying in Umbria for your entire stay, and visiting some of the Tuscany wine towns that are closer by like Montelcino and Montepulciano. And of course, Assisi. To me, I could spend my entire vacation roaming the town and it's local Franciscan sites alone. There's so much to see and do. Casa Del Cantico is the perfect place to see the area. It is remote, as stated in the write ups, but this is exactly what we wanted, and it allows you such a nice change of pace after being in the crowded tourist areas all day. And the local towns of Bettona and Torgiano are the perfect places to purchase local cheeses, olive oil, salami, ceramics, etc without paying the higher prices of the tourist traps. I highly, highly recommend this property for your vacation. There will be no surprises, and it will be better than you envision. Many thanks to our wonderful hosts. We will forever be grateful and appreciative for making us feel so welcome, and comfortable. The spirit of St Francis lives here, and you will feel no concerns other than the pure enjoyment and relaxion of a wonderful trip when you stay here.
This is an immaculate, well equipped apartment tucked in the Umbrian hills. Its location makes it a perfect place to use as a base and return to after a busy day of touring the near by towns of Bettona, Bevagna, Assisi, Perugia, Torgiano, Spelito, Todi, Gubbio, Deruta, Cortona, etc. or near by wine yards. The welcoming spread of typical food specialities of the area was spectacular and allowed us to relax immediately and get a true "taste" of Umbria. The owners were most sincere and accommodating and went out of their way to make sure our every need was met with special attention to all the details. The outdoor dining area was a great place to start the day with breakfast at sunrise and end the day with evening dining overseeing the lights of Assisi. The location and the owners made this a very special vacation spot that enabled us to see the sights of Umbria while being away from the crowds and noises of traffic to relax in the evenings. The owners description of the property was very accurate, comfortably accommodating the four of us and exceeded all our expectations. We feel very fortunate that we had the opportunity to stay at the apartment in its beautiful setting and for the opportunity to meet Monia & Fabiola along with their welcoming cute little dogs, Oliver and Corrine.
The location was accurate on the description and the foto's reflect well the appearance and amenities. It was also very clean and well-maintained.
The hostesses were very accurate and helpful in answering our questions.
We recommend this location in full confidence to our friends.
All great places like Perugia, Assissi, Bevagna, Spello, Montefalco are nearby.
Golf: A warm welcome await to everyone: we offer you our famous Welcome Brunch, whit tipycal italian products.
Delightfully situated on a wooded hillside, in a quiet, tree-lined location, just one road back from Bettona, overlooking Assisi and the valley.
Spectacular views, private, peaceful, secluded, and always a fresh breeze. The area is full of natural Rosemary, Thyme, and Juniper, and our guests always want to stay-on longer. The Perfect spot for a family with kids, a couple wanting a romantic and secluded place, or an artist needing quiet in an inspirational setting. The position of the property is perfect because it is not far (ten minutes drive) from the comforts of civilization, yet you are alone on your wooded hillside without the noise of farm equipment, traffic, or neighbours. Also, the property sits up high enough so there is no need for Air Conditioning!
