About the property

Casale Monticchio

“It is difficult to explain what makes Monticchio different from the many other apartments that are available to rent in Umbria. What we are trying to create is a place where you feel relaxed and at home”.

This 17th century farm is being carefully restored, including the landscaping of its spacious grounds, in order to provide a unique holiday destination. There are two apartments to rent in one of the buildings; both are large units with private terraces. There is also a 20m x 5m pool shared between our guest and friends.

About Andrew Fielder & Hugues Beranger

I originally trained as a furniture designer/maker and then studied art/architecture. Hugues is the linguist whose interests include cooking and history.

We should state that Monticchio is our permanent home and feel extremely lucky to live in such a wounderful place and enjoy sharing it with our guests.

Having bought the property and become involved in the local community we realise the responsibility we have taken on in restoring Monticchio. It will take many years to complete all the works but the friends we have made on this journey so far, prove that it is a worthwhile road to follow.

Also at Monticchio is: 3 cats Jasper, Sybille and Dora, plus Timo and Picco the two donkeys.

A great place to relax, beautifully renovated, fabulous hosts

  • 4 of 5

We were in a great, nicely decorated studio set slightly apart from the beautifully renovated farmhouse. Had a very quite and restful time with daily excursions (by car) into the surrounding areas. Hugues and Andrew were very welcoming and helpful hosts, very knowledgeable about the area, had great tips. We loved the cats, specially Sybil, shame she didn't want to come home with us :)

Hidden Treasure in Umbria

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at Monticchio several times, at various times of the year, staying in both Apartments 1 and 2. We intend to return as often as we can and we see it as a home-away-from-home. It is hard to know where to begin to describe this wonderful treasure but the most outstanding feature is the warm hospitality of the hosts, Andrew and Hugues. They have been most helpful from the start of the booking process, to the welcome on arrival, throughout the stay, through to our reluctant departure.

The apartments at this historic property have been renovated with exceptional care, style and sensitivity. Apartment 2 is ideal for a couple or for a small family with one or two young children. It is very spacious for a one bedroom apartment. Its sun-filled private terrace looks over the tranquil rural valley beyond. The shared swimming pool is superior to many hotel pools that I have seen. It has a different aspect over the secluded valley and easy access makes it ideal for young children or infirm adults. The pool terrace is a welcome place to relax or dine al fresco, whether you are using the pool or not.

Brilliant place to escape

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a week last May as we were over in Italy looking for Wedding venues. Hughes and Andrew were great hosts and made us feel really welcome. The apartment was lovely and had absolutely everything we needed but our favourite bit was the pool overlooking the mountains! We're getting married in May this year and will be recommending the apartments to our guests as somewhere to stay after the wedding!

wunderbar

  • 5 of 5

wir können uns nur den vorherigen Berwertungen anschliessen. Das ist nicht einfach ein Appartement, sondern ein Arrangement! Wir fühlten uns nicht wie Feriengäste, sondern wie Freunde, die in der mit Liebe eingerichteten Gästewohnung untergebracht waren. Die beiden Vermieter Hugues und Andrew haben uns wie Freunde Willkommen geheißen, es gab zwei super schöne, gesellige Essen, .....der Pool fantastisch! Einfach Klasse, und Danke nochmals an die Vermieter!

Wunderbar!!!!

  • 5 of 5

Wir waren eine Woche im April 2015 in dieser wunderbaren Ferienwohnung und haben jeden Tag genossen. Die Ausstattung lässt keine Wünsche übrig (insbesondere die Küche), die Gestaltung der Räume und Außenanlagen ist sehr geschmackvoll und die Gastfreundschaft der Besitzer einfach umwerfend. Das Ferienhaus ist etwas abgelegen von daher benötigt man ein Auto. Wir haben die Ruhe und die Natur jedoch sehr genossen. Perugia liegt nur 20 Minuten entfernt.

Wir haben uns so wohl gefühlt, dass wir mit Freunden im Oktober 2015 gleich das große Apartment gemietet haben.

Casale Monticchio is located in the middle of a valley surrounded by woods, fields and hills. We are on a Nature walk that follows the river Nestore and the woods around us. Sant’Apollinare, the hamlet got a 13 century Castle and a Monastery. Spina the nearby village is 3 km away where you will find a mini supermarket, a butcher, a bar, a bank and a pharmacist.

The farmhouse is a perfect gateway for Umbria and southern Tuscany as we are less than an hour away from some of Italy’s major sites such as Perugia, Assisi, Siena, Trasimeno Lake, Todi and Gubbio.
