The villas is equipped with everything you could possibly need for you stay, the location is perfect if you are looking for peace and quiet with just the birds for company and maybe the occasional lizard sunning themselves on the patio. We went into the pool everyday and explored the local area after talking with the owner. The owner is a phone call or e-mail away if you need anything. This is our second time at this property as we loved it so much the first time we had to come back.
Well what can I say the villa was amazing we could not want for more, very quiet which is just want we wanted, property clean and manager was a phone call away, (we did not need to use but good to know).
The swimming pool was lovely there was also table tennis, badminton, football.
The waterfalls at Marmore (Cascata Delle Marmore) is well worth a visit whether you start at the bottom and walk up or at the top and walk down, as the water is controlled by a hydro-electric plant the water falls with different strengths and if you time it right the sight is amazing.
The house is very spacious and well kept. You have lots of privacy in and around the house. It has a stunning view over the valley and the villafe of Montecchio. It's a small village, but has all you need. A nice espresso in the bar, good meals in La Perla, a butcher, backery, greengrocer and a supermarket and a lovely centro storico. On top of all this, the beautiful city of Orvieto nearby, and many more places.
We had a really great time in Umbria at this little villa! The property is large, spacious with three houses on it - but you can't see the other two, and we never felt disturbed at all. We enjoyed the quietness, the woods, the nature - and the large pool, of course. We are a family of five and were allowed to bring our little Havanesian dog. It was so relaxing!
In the house we found everything we needed - and more! The WIFI works great, the kitchen is well equipped: the water-supply, the gas stove, the large fridge, dishwasher... we weren't missing anything at all, concerning modern life. The owner was very friendly, offered his help with planning trips and pointing out interesting sites in the area on the first day. There even was a first supply with drinks and food awaiting us - a self-baked cake and vegetables from his garden - highly appreciated!! Also lots of maps and flyers on interesting sites in the house!
There are places to go quite nearby: Narni, Amelia (10-12km, it's the place to go, shopping for food), Todi, Terni (the waterfalls) or even Perugia and Assisi are easily reachable, good for a one-day-excursion, even Rome isn't far away (we did not go).
We brought our own car with us, otherwise you should strongly consider renting one, since the property is quite remote.
Two unforgettable highlights: BBQ with oak-wood in the evenings, and the restaurant Semiramide in Melezzole (10-12km), recommended by the owner. Simply PERFECT!!
In Umbria, a region that has gained a name for being the green heart of Italy, tourism is growing because of the unfamiliar harmony between nature, antiquities, historic centres and culture. The quiet of the countryside, good provisions and an inimitable cuisine are the great draw. This region is less touristy than Tuscany and this is especially appreciated by many tourists. It forms an ideal starting point for enjoying the peace of the surrounding hilly and mountainous landscape and on the other hand making trips to beautifull towns like Todi, Orvieto, Narni, Spoleto, Perugia, Gubbio, Assisi. You can also easily visit – in day trips - famous towns and charming villages in the southern part of Tuscany such as Siena, Arezzo, San Giminiano, Pienza, Cortona, Sinalunga, etc. Many tourists visit also Rome from here, without staying in the city which is very hot in summer. It is possible to go by car (journey of 1h-1h30) or by train from the stations of Terni, Narni-Amelia, Orte & Orvieto.
Golf: Closest golf courses: Terni - golf club La Romita (9 holes), Sutri - golf club Le Querce (18 holes), Perugia - golf club Antognolla (18 holes), Valdichiana - golf club Valdichiana (9 holes)
