Wonderful cottage in the country

  • 5 of 5

We rented a car in Pisa and drove to this lovely cottage near Lake Trasimeno. We wanted to see more of the country life and we got our wish. We were three adults from the United States. Linda was such a gracious hostess and gave us wine from their vineyards plus olive oil and pie. Nice and clean place with two bedrooms and two full baths. Grocery stores nearby and our own parking spot. We explored Montepulciano, Cortona, Pienza and Orvieto. Highly recommend this lovely place. Thank you Linda

Lovely cottage in sensational Umbria!

  • 5 of 5

We spent three wonderful weeks at this clean and spacious cottage.

The location is great with a beautiful garden with olive trees and the availability of a private parking place is very nice. Everything we needed was provided for. Linda and her family were extremely helpful and responded to all of our inquiries. We would recommend this property and look forward to future trips at this lovely cottage.

Thank you for three great weeks and special thanks for the delicious and tasteful homemade products we received.

Come a casa, forse anche meglio

  • 5 of 5

Sono stato ospite della Carraia dal 14 al 22 Agosto con la mia famiglia e non posso che esprimere tutta la mia soddisfazione. La casa è nuova e dotata di tutto (lavatrice, lavastoviglie, televisore LCD, stereo), molto comoda e con due bagni. E' circondata da un giardino e ha due portici che, zanzare permettendo, rendono piacevoli i momenti di relax. I proprietari sono gentilissimi: si sono adoperati per farmi arrivare un giorno prima rispetto agli accordi originali (e con un sovrapprezzo minimo) e ci hanno omaggiato di frutta, crostata, olio e bibite. Alla fine non volevamo andarcene, anche per la bellezza dell'Umbria, di cui abbiamo visitato alcuni luoghi celebri proprio avendo la Carraia come base. Grazie a Linda, Francesca, Renato e Signora.

E' molto importante sapere che i nostri ospiti si trovano bene da noi, quindi grazie per le vostre belle parole! Un caro saluto, Linda e famiglia

Sich wunderschön Willkommen fühlen!

  • 5 of 5

Wir (47, 46, 19 und 15 J.) haben unsere dritte Urlaubswoche in diesem wunderschönen Haus verleben dürfen. Der Empfang war äußerst herzlich und man wurde mit hauseigenen Köstlichkeiten verwöhnt. Die Vermieter sind ausgesprochen hilfsbereit und freundlich. Das Haus ist ist sehr geräumig, sauber und gut ausgestattet. Im Garten kann man wunderbar entspannen. Castiglione del Lago ist ein sehr schöner Ort am See. Im See kann man sich abkühlen und dabei den herrlichen Ausblick genießen. Auch Rom ist sehr gut und stressfrei mit dem Zug erreichbar. Wir danken für eine wunderbare Zeit und die wertvollen Tipps!

W "La Carraia"!

  • 5 of 5

Bellissima villetta a pochi minuti da Castiglione del Lago. Ben attrezzata, pulita e tenuta benissimo. Situata in posizione strategica per visitare i bei borghi intorno al Trasimeno e quelli tra Umbria e Toscana. Infine i proprietari sono davvero gentilissimi e disponibili. Sicuramente un posto consigliato per vacanze sia brevi che lunghe.

Eine Idylle in Umbrien

  • 5 of 5

Wunderschönes Ferienhaus inmitten eines tollen Gartens (Feigen, Tomaten, frische Kräuter zum selbst ernten inklusive), sehr nette Familie, die bei allen Fragen weiterhelfen konnte und uns mit leckeren Produkten aus eigener Herstellung herzlich empfangen hat.

Wir waren mit zwei Kleinkindern dort, auch den beiden hat es sehr gut gefallen. In der Umgebung gibt es viel zu entdecken, ein rundum gelungener Urlaub! Danke an Linda und ihre Familie!!!

The cottage is just 5 km away from Castiglione del Lago, acknowledged as one of the most beautiful medieval hamlets in Italy.

Your stay at Lake Trasimeno can be enhanced by plenty of cultural and leisure activities.
