Overview

About the property

Agriturismo in Tuscany

If you want to come and visit the most beautiful places in Umbria and Tuscany, this is the perfect place. Getting back to nature, relaxation, and good food are guaranteed! Close to Cortona and Trasiemnto Lake, Marilena la Casella features a wonderful holiday flat with two bedrooms, a bathroom, a kitchen, a living room, a swimming pool, and a lovely garden with a games area for children.

We offer an extremely good restaurant where we serve delicious breakfasts and traditional Umbrian and Tuscan dishes. All these specialities are fresh and prepared in the house by Marilena. They are always accompanied with an good house wine, white or red. Our specialities include Cappelletti, raviole, and oven-baked pasta dishes with pombazo mushrooms and truffles, mixed pork or beef grill, wild boar salami, lamb, and many vegetables from our own vegetable garden.

Children under 4-years old dine for free.

If you are itching to sample Umbria and Tuscany's culinary traditions we welcome you to participate in our cookery classes!

We offer free Wi-Fi internet connection.

The best way to get to know us is through our values, and products that come from our origins and our past. It is these values that drive us to improve and to provide you with a relaxing stay, as well as long-lasting memories.

1. Time

We believe in the weather, which seems to have no master, but marches to the beat of its own drum and changes from night to day, which is integral to help buds to blossom into flowers and seeds give fruit, that which is still alive in traditional areas; if we do not listen to it we cannot prosper.

2. Nature

We believe in nature, in the soil, in its gifts of produce, in its boundless knowledge from times long past. Even if one person does not take the time to respect nature, its strength shall previal. We respect the environment and the harmony in which all things coexist.

3. Freedom

We believe in the freedom to walk barefoot on the grass, to savour just-ripe fruit, to express your emotions without fear of what others may think; the freedom to do things when we like, in this unique space, far from the daily rush and the obligations that life imposes upon us.

4. Quality

We believe in quality, just like the quality of the produce from our soil. We believe in quality of live attainable when our bodies and souls are perfectly in harmony with total well-being, a conscious inner peace achieving conscious inner peace. Marilena la Casella is the place where you can find this balance and heal your body and mind.

5. Simplicity

We believe in the simplicity and authenticity of old things, of traditions that are often laid aside. In Marilena la Casella, we want to rediscover and dedicate the same importance to them that they once had. Little things in life are important, like knowing how to see the world through a child's eyes.

6. Tradition

We believe it is important to value the food and the produce we gather from our soil, the family recipes that are passed down the generations and change perfectly to meet people's demanding standards. They are born out of love and simple ingredients, pure and cultivated by us.

7. Love

We believe in being passionate about our work, for those simple, pure things, we believe in the love that sets everything at play, which, finding itself is then reflected and becomes... Marilena la Casella

About Marilena Grilli

I'm Mariline, a daughter, a wife, and a mother of two. I have lived in Umbria all my life and grew up in San Martino, the small village where I began working in eco tourism. I love to cook and to create new flavours everyday from the products that the soil brings forth.

Marilena Grilli purchased this farmhouse in 1996

Why Marilena Grilli chose Cortona area

This holiday house has been a family home for many generations.

What makes this farmhouse unique

The flats have matching layouts: a double bed, a double or triple bedroom, a bathroom with a shower or bathtub, a living room with a TV, a fully equipped kitchen ready to cook in, and a terrace overlooking the Niconne Valley.

delightful views, refreshing pool, home-cooked meals--delightful!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay immensely. The views from the terrace and adjoining bedroom were stunning, a wonderful way to wake up. The second bedroom felt spacious even with four single beds, and the children loved the football pitch, playground, and pool. The grounds are wonderful for children. Marilena worked with us on board arrangements and was very accommodating of our various tastes, and her husband Giuseppe made us feel completely at home. We hope to return in the near future!

The best vacation our family has ever had

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time at a agriturismo and for sure not our last.

Agriturismo Marilena la Casella was a little peace of heaven.

Our two boys (6 and 9) just loved it here. The peace and quiteness, the pool, the food everything was just perfect.

It is a place where you can relax and have a nice time with your family.

We visited different towns (Orvierto, Gubbio and the nearby Castiglione del Lago). Cities with lots of history and very beautiful.

The kids loved it when we came home for a swim in the pool, then a little relaxation on the terrase before having lovely food made by Marilena.

The kids tried a lot of new food and we can only recommend that you visit this amazing place.

Thanks for a great time :-)

Umgebung: Malerisch am Ha...

  • 5 of 5

Umgebung: Malerisch am Hang eines kleinen Tales gelegen. Wunderschöner Blick in das Tal und den Sonnenuntergang. Sehr ruhig in eine kleinen Häuseransammlung außerhalb von Lisciano Niccone eingebettet. Arezzo, Assisi, Orvieto, Perugia, Siena etc. in 1-2 Stunden zu erreichen.

Appartments: Sehr schöne (sauber und umfangreich ausgestattet) und besonders geräumige Ferienwohnungen. Wir hatten Sole und Luna gemietet. Beide lassen sich durch eine Tür miteinander verbinden. Zusätzlich hatten wir noch ein weiteres Appartement gemietet. Kochen und Leben fand aber in den beiden verbundenen FeWo statt. Wir waren zu zwölft mit 3 Familien(!) und hatten sehr viel Platz. Es fehlt wirklich an nichts, für die kalte Jahreszeit sind sogar Kamine vorhanden. Die Anzeigenüberschrift: "Luxus Wohnung in der Toskana" sollte den Gast aber nicht zu einer übertriebenen Erwartungshaltung verleiten. Wir würden für die Zimmer eher "gehoben aber rustikal" als Attribut vergeben.

Anwesen: Kleiner (10mx5m) aber feiner Pool, Liegestühle top! Sonnige und schattige Plätze am Pool ausreichend vorhanden, diverse Spielangebote auch für kleine Kinder. Kleine Bibliothek mit Urlaubslektüre in verschiedenen Sprachen vor Ort vorhanden.

Küche/Restaurant: Wer sich nicht selbst versorgen will (was in den FeWo-Küchen super möglich ist!) kann sich in dem kleinen Restaurant direkt in dem Anwesen von Marilena verwöhnen lassen. Von der Zwiebel über das Kotelett bis zum Wein ist alles aus eigenem Anbau. Selbst die Pasta ist hausgemacht. Und alles ist richtig lecker!

Gastgeber: Guiseppe und Marilena sind sehr nett und hilfsbereit. Man fühlt sich vom ersten Moment an wie bei Freunden. Beide kümmern sich sehr um alles und halten das Anwesen gut in Schuss.

Sonstiges: Man kann mit EC oder Mastercard bezahlen.

Fazit: Wir können die Ferienwohnungen uneingeschränkt weiterempfehlen und können uns gut vorstellen hier noch einmal Urlaub zu machen.
